Default Got to listen to these today

I got to listen to these today. They just came in and Martin Logan is coming next week to dial them in for an event on Saturday. They were pretty impressive. Definitely HUGE!!! Now if I could just find that extra $80k I had laying around the other day.

rob, that picture alone tells me right away that they are compromised by the room.

I'm hoping they will be at Axpona ... heard them in Houston at Magnolia and they didn't impress at all ... and I really like the rest of their line so something had to be wrong.

I think Martin Logan should have stuck with the Statement E2 four tower system or something similar.

They were absolutely spectacular. The Neolith is a big step down.

That's what happens when a private company gets sold to a large corporation. Economics and what sells the most takes precedence.

while a superb product, real world application was minimal. Given it size and sheer weight (1 ton) it sure did make a 'statement' twenty years ago !

actually if optimized for ones room and given the price differentiation I'm not so sure about the 'big step down'

Economics are a must for survival regardless of company size, for the record Gayle Sanders and Ron Sutherland never intended for the Statement to be a main stream product.
