Sorcerer

Higher end, near field monitors. Same later variants appear to have the tweeter mounted below the bass driver i.e. the cabinet has seemingly been turned upside down. Possibly a forerunner to the SE model. The SE was a big step up as it was fitted with the same bass driver as the Revelation range.
