The subwoofers are indeed better looking than I can photograph.
I have had them for a couple weeks now and tuned in. The Parasound Amp matches up perfectly and has some important adjustments for me. Particularly the gain (the crossover has an attenuator of its own), that is very fine in adjustment. There is also a high pass filter option of 20 & 40 Hz, useful if your Turntable has a little rumble. Final placement is directly adjacent to the main speakers, maybe 0.5" between them and 0.5" in front. I anticipated the close setup of the Towers vs. Subs and had removed the outriggers for the Orpheus and installed Stillpoints Ultra Bases for Stability.
In terms of level, I had to go through a few discs but mainly relied on the lessons I learned from Master Set speaker positioning guidelines. The subs blend perfectly with the towers.
The setup sounds great. One of my favorite speakers is the Sonus Faber Aida. I always though that Orpheus sounded very similar, just couldn't quite reach as low. With the Orpheus + BOW, I believe it is better. Just a ton of presence, weight and excitement all with the naturalness that Daedalus is known for. Just finished listening to one of my favorite albums, The Final Cut. This is the best I have heard it, just amazing.
In a couple years Ill send the Orpheus back for the new tweeters and trim rings, no rush, sounds great right now.
Here is a picture of the Crossover and the Parasound. Need to order a matching Walnut platform:
One of the things that makes the Orpheus unique: rear ambience drivers:
