Apex has the pecs

"...High-frequencies are smooth as silk, speech couldn't be clearer if the actors were in the room and the rear soundstage is willfully expansive.  And with music, this system nailed the emotion and energy of any recording I threw at it. Clean, full bodied vocals, metronomic timing and wonderful detail reproduction make for a spine-tingling listen and reveal it to be a fantastic all-rounder."

BEST STYLE SPEAKER PACKAGE £2000+

"You certainly can't buy a better made, better finished or (to our eyes, at least) better looking package at the price."

The holy grail of style speaker systems

"It offers the sort of powerful, insightful audiophile sound that you don’t automatically associate with satellite speakers, a result of the astonishing build quality and clever technology that lies within each unit."

Monitor Audio raises the style bar

"It's muscular when called upon, but articulate and beautifully integrated too, with little audible sign of the crossover from speakers to subwoofer."

I have chosen to run two wall mounted A40s as a stereo pair. For me they fit the bill exactly - mount using clever strong adjustable brackets provided, compact, non intrusive, all beautifully engineered and finished. They sound great!
