RE: A lot has to do with the ESL!

I used to own ESL 63 and love to put solid state amp on it, especially Metaxas Soliloquy.

After listening to the ESL 57 stacking (wired 2 in series), and the result is mind boggling driven by 50-60W tube amplifier (not OTL). Example: Marantz 9 in triode, Quicksilver 8417...

I heard people complaint the Grant Lumley amplifier has weak bottom but it sounds really good on Quad ESL 57 stacked and wired in series.

Rumor has it that OTL work s even better on ESL 57 wired in series. So that's why draw my attention and now I have 2 x ESL 57 wired in series.

Actually Martin Logan sounds pretty good with Conrad Johnson amplifier, just magic!! But not others, especially solid state. Very hard to mate solid state with ML ESL
