Beautiful sound quality for classical music


We use two of these speakers in a 5.0 configuration with a center speaker and two bookshelf speakers at the back; no sub-woofer. They are quite unobtrusive compared with the much larger main speakers I previously used but the sound quality is just as...

These speakers sound like nothing else on the market. Do your research, and you will find how pure the sound is from electrostatic speakers, and why audiophiles love them. They look stunning in any room, and work great not only for music but as R-L...

Amazing Speakers


Imaging and sound stage is the best I have ever heard in this price range. The ESLs brought out details I've never heard before in music. It really is difficult to tell that the sound is coming from a speaker and not a live performance. Everyone who...

Love the speakers. I use a Pioneer SC-81 to drive them and I can crank it to -9DB before it starts getting really loud. I would imagine you want at least 150W per channel to drive these. Also, you have to place them near a power source and at least 2.5...

I waited 20 years to buy Martin Logan ESL. Now I wish I could have done it sooner. The sound is phenomenal and I'm re-discovering my CD collection.
