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.
