Martin Logan Vantage Electrostatic Speakers in Dark Cherry & Stage Center Channel
Brand New Replacement Panels (still in box) which cost $2000 from Martin Logan
Combined cost was over $10,000 and the replacement panels are $2000 from Martin Logan which means I have around $12,000 all in on this front stage.
Note: Speakers are now in Knoxville, Tennessee

Specs:
"Based on the state-of-the-art Summit™ loudspeaker, Vantage offers unprecedented performance for its size and price. Key to this achievement is our PoweredForce™ active woofer technology, which generates deep, articulate, dynamic bass from an astonishingly compact cabinet. An XStat™ electrostatic panel handles the midrange up, delivering the smooth, pristinely detailed, and richly ambient sound that is the hallmark of MartinLogan speakers. No ordinary speaker comes close."

Its dual 6.5-inch aluminum-cone woofers and advanced Vojtko™ crossover seamlessly integrate a solid bass foundation with the astonishingly transparent, detailed midrange and treble produced by its XStat panel. A single-pivot bracket/stand facilitates set-top, shelf, on-wall, or on-floor placement."

I spent around $10,000 for the Vantages and Stage combined and this is not even including the $2000 for the replacement panels. I ordered the panels thinking they needing replacing only to find out it was my amplifier behind the lack of response. Regardless, I ended up keeping them. Speakers still sound great and have zero issues achieving more than satisfactory SPL's when running Audyssey XT32 and in general operation.

The Stage is simply a fantastic Center Channel and is in very good shape. Truthfully, if this package was placed on Audiogon or Ebay, I am quite confident they would sell for thousands more, but without boxes and the fragility of ESL's, I do insist on local sales only. Or perhaps within 100 miles could meet up.
