Rockport Technologies Hyperion loudspeaker system


We all seems to enjoy these historical insights, so here is more... In the year 2000 Rockport Technologies released the Hyperion loudspeaker system. The Hyperion was a three-way, five driver loudspeaker whose custom, Audiotechnology drive units and Dynaudio Esotar tweeter were arranged in a D’Appolito configuration in symmetrical carbon fiber composite baffles.

"Its sound was characterized by The Absolute Sound’s Jonathan Valin in this way: “...gorgeous tone color, tremendous dynamic ease and authority, natural instrumental size and scale, and superb treble and bass extension. You need a lot of room for these babies and a lot of money, but, if you have the space and the moolah, they will take you about as close as you can come to the absolute sound.”"
