These sound pretty sweet IF set up properly. They are not for everyone's taste because some music sounds better on more traditional high end speakers

Fantastic Speakers

I bought a pair of these a couple of years ago now. I use them as part of my AV setup, and I love them. Great highs, nice non-directional spacious sound, and the bass is incredible, no way can I turn it up on my receiver. If, however, you pay more than 2 grand for the pair, you're just not shopping correctly.

Baby High End speaker.

Produces more live / spacey sound compare to ordinary box speaker. Need a lot space around the unit. Sweet spot is wide than expected. Mid Bass is sufficient. Requires good "high current" amp to run. For deep bass add a subwoofer. 80 hrs break-in period.

Piece of art

Love these speakers. Sounds great and looks like a piece of art. Wife approved and my ears love the music. Needs a sub for the lows

excellence at a great price

So far I'm enjoying the clear and enveloping sounds of this speaker. For now I've only had it playing with a Martin Logan ESL center channel. The other speaker had delivery issues. And so it goes. Stereo will be awesome! Make sure to connect it with excellent cables, I noticed a great difference. Paired with a 10" sub, smooth lows.

Great sound when positioned correctly

Speakers sound great but on occasions, make a static type snapping sound. They are big and a bit awkward to move. Don't throw away the box as they will be needed if you need to ship it back to MartinLogan for any repairs.

Great speakers

Great speaker, but will need a medium to large room as these require to be about 2-3 feet from the wall. They do sound fantastic if set up properly,
