Episode Audio

Episode Audio, exhibiting at T.H.E. Show, had some unusual-looking speakers, with the tweeter set well back from the front of the speaker, presumably to effect time alignment. They also claim wide dispersion horizontally and vertically over a wide range. The Episode-V ($12,500/pair) sounded good despite having a less-than-audiophile-quality Sony DVD/CD player as the source, and modestly-priced Onkyo electronics.

Doesn't look time aligned, I'm thinking that what they're doing there is moving the acoustic center of the midrange closer to that of the woofer to reduce lobing. Could be a down-facing mid in the top as well, for MTM?
