Default Marten Django

These new Marten Django speakers sound interesting. Based on the description of the sound in the review below, it seems like I'd like them.

Jason...thanks for the link. This definitely sounds like it is worth seeking out for an audition.

Mike...let us know what you think. Marten speakers are always paired with EAR tube electronics at shows (primarily because the importer of Martne speakers, Dan Meinwald, is also the importer of EAR electronics but also because they make a good pairing apparently), so let us know what ancillary equipment you hear with the Djangos. Thx

Hi Mike,
In Hong Kong, audiophiles usually pair Marten with Vitus amplifiers & Jorma cables.
Django is not available here yet. Please tell us your impression after the audition.
Thanks a lot!

Hi Cyril & Jeff,
I am from Hong Kong and an AA newcomer.
My 2012 upgrade plan is to replace the speakers. My Revel Studio is too long in the teeth.

An audiophile friend of mine has the Coltrane and the other has the Soprano. Both models are very good & musical and have changed my impression of ceramic drivers.

The Django's price is so attractive! There are a lot of Marten fans in Taiwan & some of them have already pre-ordered Django despite there isn't any demo in Taiwan yet!

I'am eagerly waiting for audition reports on Django in AA. Many thanks!
