Summary: Picked up my Martins - Source- last saturday and overeagerly set them up expecting to be blown away with some of my demo discs & downloads. Disappointed - sound wasn't right. No warmth no delicious mids or highs.
Summary: I am amazed. I have been a listener of music for a number of years and I never thought that I would be the owner of true hi fidelity speakers. I say this because most speakers or for that matter stereo components noted for their musical reproductive ability are also noted for their high costs.
Summary: I am an audio enthusiast with deep taste in fine music. I also play few musical instruments. I assembled my Home Theater system last year and was looking for decent Floor Standing speakers to to replace the front speakers (I had Klipsch Quintet IV at that time).
Summary: I first heard this speaker in the Best Buy Sound room. I was amazed by the sound! They were playing a blu-ray music dvd that I owned. It sounded so much better here. I spent some time in the store in other areas and continued to hear the speakers. The music was so clear, not loud but clear!
Summary: In a nutshell, these are fantastic speakers and at the $600+ price are no-brainers. I have a martin logan center speaker and was impressed, so when I saw the source at a discounted price, I rushed down to my local best buy to hear them. I was not disappointed. The clarity is what impressed me.
Summary: My MartinLogan ESLs introduced a new dimension to my listening experience. Not only are they incredibly precise and accurate. They present a "sound stage" that exceeds the dimension of your listening area. My Sources "seem" to present sounds several feet past the end of the speakers!
Summary: I was shocked to see that I purchased these speakers in December 2010. Love them. I did set the speakers so that the sound goes straight out from the speakers instead of pointing them a little upwards with the adjustable base. I wanted the best sound to be at listening level sitting on the couch.
Very affordable excellent entry level speaker system

Summary: I currently have a set of German Canton Plus S loudspeakers driven by a Jolida 801RC tube amplifier, I have heard a lot about electrostatic systems but never had a chance to experiment with one of these as they are costly and bulky, looking in Amazon I came across of the Martin Logan Source...
