Martin Logan vs. Everything

I have a pair of Martin Logan 13a. to me they sound incredible. The thing is I also like to spend time at hi-fi shops , whether they be brick and mortar or or online and it seems like those dealers think the Martin Logan are the weak Link in my system…


I’ve listened to Speakers twice and even three times the price and they don’t sound any better to me but I do have my room treated and everything is tuned just in my liking. my personal opinion is that Martin Logan has spent years perfecting what they do with the electrostatic speaker, and that it’s just not financially feasible for some of these smaller companies to try and do the same so they have traditional box speakers, which are great, but to me not as great as the Martin Logan .


so how wrong am I ? Fight me. 



Agreed, auxiliary bass panels and a first class sub are even better. My sub is crossed over at 50Hz, 18 dB/octave, and is imperceptible most of the time.

"I have the big panels" ??

andrewkelley-Your ML's unquestionably are very good. I prefer the technology over conventional boxes.

I use an older generation of ML's to good effect with a pair of REL's as well.

But to compare them to  the Soundlab series in size/scale, the SoundLab's are in another league.
