Here you go What a STUNNING setup!

What are the dimensions of your room? I see the speakers are so close together, I'm guessing they are STILL doing their disappearing act?
I love the walnut finish you have...it is a matte walnut.

Hi Shaz

my room is very small - its called the whiskey room and is just for me. Dimensions are 12'6" by 14'.

they are the biggest speakers you can realistically put into that room , and they are about 1.5m apart and they totally disappear

yes - matte walnut and then black lacquer over carbon fibre. For their size they are very light - about 94kg each

back from hols and just listening now

exceptional transparency and a smoothness probably due to the fuller bottom end when compared to the tenors. Also, despite the increase in size they seem to disappear more readily.

the other thing I've noticed, when using Vitus amps u can switch between class a/b and class a. Since I've had the Coltrane3's I'm forgetting to switch the amps to class a

I picked up the Coltranes a year or so ago. I have the Ayre stack and stuff was sounding a bit soft. The Martens are so stinking fast that they definetly helped the Ayre gear out
