Apogee CentaurCentaur

The Centaur was the medium sized model of the Centaurus ribbon hybrid range, Apogee's first range of ribbon hybrids using a 8" dynamic woofer and a 26" ribbon tweeter.

They enabled users to experience the clarity and spaciousness of a ribbon tweeter, and with the ordinary dynamic woofer instead of the current hungry planar bass panel they were considerably easier to drive.
