Concert in the family room

Calvin, Crutchfield
26 August 2013
  • Summary: I'm very happy with my choice. Almost done with the 72 hour break in. Just starting to turn up the volume. As you increase the volume the sound field fills the room and suddenly they come alive and your family room is now a concert hall. Still tweaking the placement, only 2' from front wall and like the other reviewer can't move them too far forward. The clarity is amazing. The biggest surprise is the variety in the quality of my music library.
  • Pros: Falling in love with music again, the details you never heard before.
  • Cons: Non so far

Next Best Thing to Being There

Dave Z, Crutchfield
23 August 2013
  • Summary: Not completely satisfied with my existing tower speakers for two channel listening, I called Crutchfield for a recommendation on an upgrade. After a good deal of time on the phone explaining my likes and dislikes, my space, and my budget, we decided the MartinLogan Electromotion ESLs might be a good fit. Now, after a day of listening to them, I couldn't be more pleased. The clarity and detail are amazing and the soundstage is beautiful.
  • Pros: Great sound, stylish looks, and easier on the budget compared to more traditional speakers delivering the same quality of sound.
  • Cons: Not really a con, but these speakers will reveal both the good AND the bad hiding in your recordings. Sweet spot seems narrower than conventional speakers. Finally, they do need a bit more room to breath than my previous speakers, but if you have the space that's not an issue.

Awesome, none better for the price!!!

Jarcon, Crutchfield
23 August 2013
  • Summary: I bought/auditioned 4 different speaker sets before sticking with the ML ESL home theater (including these ESL's). I was hesitant at first because of things I have heard about electrostats. I heard that if they're not positioned perfectly they don't sound good. That's not true. I found their perfect placement and it's about 5 ft from my front wall. The wife disapproved, and the wife won.
  • Pros: Look and Sound amazing. Until you hear electrostats, you don't know what they're missing. Try them out, you won't regret it.
  • Cons: Flimsy feeling speaker wire terminals.

like no other

Derek Burggraf, FutureShop
16 March 2013
  • Summary: These speakers are utterly amazing. Sound stage galore. I heard things from recordings that I had not heard before. I highly recommend Martin Logans. Using it strictly as a 2 channel system but these would also amaze in home theater as well.
