RE: Open Baffle vs Martin Logan

Hello Tim,
How have you been, yes we tend to like the same type of sound - I'm getting the itch to try something different - still have the Cornscalas, and I see their stenghts and weakness.
Have also lived with the high efficiency SET and associated speakers.
I recently auditioned some Martin Logan 13A's and they sounded fantastic! - huge effortless soundstage, great center fill image - really musical with great bass. ( I always liked the sound of Martin Logan's, but wasn't quite sure of the bass integration, these sounded right)
I can't afford those, but could get the ones right below (11A's) for 30% off retail.
I just got back from demoing a pair of Emerald Physics KC11's and although they are not as refined, or sophisticated, they nevertheless were very enjoyable, fun, rocking speaker (i.e. no fatigue, at least at this audition) they also threw a very big effortless soundstage with a "big sound" - and to boot, they are only $2500 direct price....
Not sure, if I should bite the bullit with the Logan's, or try the emerald physics... Or just wait it out some more - how do you like the GR Research, what made you try them ? Strengths weakness ??
