  • Summary: The MartinLogan Vista is not the most tonally neutral speaker out there. I find its overall balance definitely on the bright side of neutral. It has outstanding transient response. Brass comes through with convincing bite, but sometimes, on trumpets I hear a slightly annoying "buzzy" quality that I do not hear on other speakers using the same electronics.

Sublimely, accurately detailed presentation

  • Summary: First, electrostatics are fundamentally different in their sonic creation, so it follows that their music has a distinctive presentation. Frankly, I'm dumbfounded, these are speakers that need to be auditioned. I'm buying two more pairs.

Full Circle

  • Summary: I finally had the disposable income to go and get my dream audio setup. I had owned Denon amps in the past so I was decided on that front, but speakers were another matter. The last pair of speakers I purchased, I used the money I received for my high school graduation. So here it was coming up on 30 later and my quest started. Did some basic web research and had a few ideas, but I knew I needed to go and listen. I packed up a eclectic set of CDs and headed out.

Discontinued model, still great

Meow Tomcat, Amazon
6 September 2012
  • Summary: The Martin Logan Vista is a discontinued model (see Martin Logan website) and has been replaced by the Theos as the most affordable X-Stat electrostatic speaker. The Vista pdf can be downloaded giving complete specifications. Prices are also stated with the Theos starting at $4995/ pair. A comparison of the two models can be found on the martinloganowners.com site. The hybrid design combines a cone woofer with electrostatic panels. Bass is tight, deep and can play loud.

**Oh My GOODNESS!!!**

Sigpaw, Amazon

  • Summary: First of all, I'd like to point out that I have been the highly satisfied owner of a pair of Martin Logan Source speakers for over a year now. The Sources "changed my world" and opened up a new and different dimension in my music. I heard details and timbre changes in instruments that added a new dimension to the realism. A clarity that seems to float in mid air and accuracy that puts you right there, in the band with the music all around you.

Good Deal

larryzzzz, Amazon

  • Summary: My Vistas were shipped in well protected packaging. They look and sound great. The sound is super crisp, with that wonderful "sound stage" presence that is unique to electrostatic speakers. I'd heard these Vista's in a showroom years ago and was hooked, but cost was prohibitive at that time. Now a discontinued item at Martin Logan, these Vista's are a great deal and I jumped at the opportunity.

Martin Logan Vista

BJJ Beginner "BJJ beginner", Amazon

  • Summary: Mine still breaking in, got fabulous deal from Sunny in West Covina. I thought my Puritys were the best sounding speaker ever, with plenty of bass, and seamless planar sound. The Vistas top them in spades. I was 100% happy with the Puritys and only bought the Vistas because Sunny made me a deal I could not turn down, even though I had not heard them. They make every CD sound like a perfect LP, with the blackness in the music, no graininess anywhere.

  • Summary: MartinLogan Vista is a good speaker indeed. It's best part is the fast speed, resolution and deep three-dimensionality which the stator only can deliver. The worst part is that Vistas may be a bit tricky with the placement because to get everything out of the speaker you have to have some distance from the listening position to spk.
