    I didn't think that anyone would want to sell their ML's once they got them...

    Unless it's from an estate sale.[​IMG]

    You know "until death do us part".

    I had the opportunity once to borrow a pair for a weekend. The soundstage presented by these speakers is encompassing. Ideal for HT and music.

    The pair I borrowed were an older set w/o bass cones making a sub mandatory. I am sure that you know they have to be plugged into an AC outlet and do require a large room to sound their best.

    I read a fair bit about them (check the ML website). The vibrating film used as radiators are extremely durable and they say even with a hole in the membrane they still work.

    As for the stability of the step up transformer, I don't know.

    The panels are very durable if taken care of. Smoking is bad for them. The membrane should be clear and not colored. I generally vacuum mine every few months.

    One good thing about logans is the support.

    What model are they? Be prepared to get a heavy duty amplifier to really make them sing.

    Tom,

    I haven't owned MLs, but my Acoustat panels were still going strong 13 years after purchase before I sold them.

    Regards,

    If used properly, electrostatics should last as long as any dynamic speaker system. (Wonder how many original Quad ESLs are still making beautiful music?)



    I discourage all my speaker systems from taking up the habit.
