Thanks for the great review. I've had my ESL's for about a year and I think they're pretty great. I'm running them with a pair of bridged McIntosh MC240's (80 watts) and the sound is heaven when mated to their dynamo sub. One modification I did (with ML's approval) was to replace the cheap spring posts for solid 5 way binding posts. Solid connection now.

That's a smart mod! I'm surprised that a $2500 pair of speakers like the ElectroMotion ESL uses cheap spring connectors. The Theos and above all use proper binding posts.

The money is in the panels and crossovers. It took me 10 minutes per speaker to do the mod with my choice of posts.

What binding posts did you choose? I've been considering doing this mod for the past year and just stumbled across your post.

What binding posts did you use for a replacement? I've been dying to do this.
