So I've been trying to decide on some speakers and went out for my final auditioning yesterday. B&W CDM9NT, Polk LSi 15, Paradigm Studio 100. I had in my mind that I was walking away with one of those three speakers. Spent about 20-30 minutes with each set but I had complaints about each using four disks from Janet Jackson, Santana, Peter Gabriel, Matrix soundtrack for kicks. All are very fine speakers though. Then I listened to some Martin Logan Requests and fell in love. They had everything I was looking for in a speaker...wide/deep soundstage, incredible vocals/midrange, suprisingly good bass for a ML thanks to a 12" woofer crossed at 180 Hz. I've always liked eletrostats since the late 80s and now I have a pair. Didn't pay much more than the CDM9nts either. Now to find a suitable amplifier for these 5.5 foot monsters. My HK 100x2 amp is doing OK for now. I've read in the manual that the speaker dips to 1.2 ohm. My heart was set on a Rotel 200x2. Owning electrostats is very new to me so now I'm not sure of a good amp for them. The demo was using a Krell 150x2 integrated amp and sony 555es player.
