I have to say... these are indeed some pretty good looking speakers. I won't comment on the sound just yet.
So have you already mapped out the best locations for the speakers?

Not sure just yet... I will have to reserve that answer for a consensus vote amongst the audiophile brotherhood that will be arriving in a couple of days.

Musing over the possibilty of upgrading my mains and perhaps choosing electrostatics. Leaning toward the ML-ESLs, but the Maggie 1.7s are very interesting, indeed. Really looking foward to the outcome of this evaluation! The forum's choice of six contenders is intriguing.

Re: The Official $2,500 Speaker Evaluation / Home Audition Event

looking forwards to seeing what some of the conclusions are. in particular, the martin logans. have owned multiple martin logan speakers, and really interested in the esl model. particularly in the bass integration that these employ. electrostats have always had problems with bass integration. the difference now of course is that we now have more sophisticated measurement and analysis techniques to use to help understand what is being heard.

I know everyone is patiently waiting to see what the $10,000+ home theater system will be... and what the $20,000+ two-channel system will be. So I thought maybe I would not make you wait any longer and go ahead and show you the $20,000+ system. So, without further ado... here is the entire system:

HOWEVER... you may want to wait. I don't have it completely setup yet and this could spoil it for you. For those who just can't stand it any longer... go ahead, take a peak, but DO NOT share the pic publicly anywhere else. Okay... here it is, for your eyes only:

DO NOT OPEN... DO NOT CLICK THIS BUTTON! >>>>>



Hey... I said I didn't have it setup yet.


oh that's good...only thing I can tell about that system is it was delivered by fed ex.

I really enjoy reading analysis of the character of the sound, and some explanation of how the speaker manufacturers design choices favor one attribute over another, at this level in the market there are some clear design differences. Can't wait to hear from the eval team on how they all stack up. Good luck guys!

Sonnie, just noticed your new pic of the lineup in the first post. Ultra-cool! Just doubled my own excitement level!
