Incredible sounding speakers

 

These are my first electrostatic speakers, but I did listen to the top end models in the show room. Simply put, the higher end models get louder with good clarity- just like with most other speakers. These speakers, pair with a Marantz 5008 amp,...

A Chorus of Angels would be proud

 

I'm a 60 yr old audio nut, have had many speakers in my life and have auditioned too many to count from 2k a pair to 10k a pair. The ESL are so different than Box Speakers. Clarity, imaginging and sound stage are all top notch. Placement of these...

Great sound

Like being there

 

Beyond their obvious good looks, they are very easy to set up (the first step is done with a flashlight). The sound quality is amazing. It really is difficult to tell that the sound is coming from a speaker and not a live band. We listen to a lot of...

Excellent sound reproduction

Both speakers require their own power

Best Imaging Around

 

When it came time for me pull the trigger on a new theater setup, I choose the MartinLogan EM-ESL towers easily. After auditioning a parade of speakers from Def Tech, Sonas Faber, Bowers and Wilkins and Energy, nothing could match the tonal highs and...

Break in period

Better than expected

 

I was condiering the larger ones, Theos, I think? Anyway, I ended up getting the little ones and the better (800.00) center channel to match.I ran these off my Denon 4310 for the first couple weeks. As Japanese Amps go, its pretty good. Not overly...

Size- Form Factor

A little shallow on the bottom end
