I have a pair of the Audes Grand Blues. I have not heard the Orpheus. The Grands are underpriced for the proformance compared to many higher priced speakers. The Grandes have almost the same parts list as the Orpheus, and are easy to drive being a 4ohm rating. You have to set them up just right in your room to get the right bass response, which isn't overpowering to start with. The mid and highs section is their strong points. Great at imageing and soundstage depth. Craftsmanship is about the best I have seen. My room is somewhat big, and I use tube gear, so the bass maybe better in your room.
