Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

RE: What type of music are you listening with these ML speakers?

I've heard Martin Logans off and on for about 30 years now and have always found the bass poorly integrated with the electrostatic drivers. It just doesn't sound right to me.

And, I can't tell you how many times, when I've made the above observation, that I've been assured that "THIS TIME THEY GOT IT RIGHT!" But it still isn't in my book. The lower midrange is so critical for the fundamentals of voice and most instruments -- and that's where the driver transition takes place -- that I'm just not interested if the speaker doesn't get that right, no matter what else it does superbly.

Now, it has probably been 5 years or so since I've heard a set of MLs, so maybe it really is true that this time they've fixed the issue! ;-)
