Quality sound at a reasonable price.


My speakers are not "broken in" yet (72 hrs. I'm told). However, the sound already seems lighter and more natural than other floor standing box speakers that I have owned over the years.

A Natural and Spacious Experience!


I came from a pair of Polk Towers and I am blown away. The amount of detail is unbelievable. In the store I was leaning towards a pair of B&W's and a Marantz PM8005 amp in another room. The associate was kind enough to hook up the ML's next to the...

Great all-purpose speaker for a large room


These speakers are easy to drive, have a fantastic sound and great imaging. They are easy to drive and once positioned correctly, are easy to listen to. One thing to watch out for in placement is that they produce sound from both the front and the rear...

Opens a new world of music listening


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...
