I can't! Can't, won't, will never! Here is the story. I listened to some MartinLogans some 6 years ago. It was a revelation. I could still remember their sound years after listening to them. So I began saving. And finally got a set a couple of months ago (Scenarios). At first, it was confusion. The speakers were boring, dull and lifeless. Blame it on a dead spike supressor Still, the system sounded quite dull afterwards. 3 months of break-in later, I'm hooked. And not as in an "I like this" kind of way. I mean, as in "if you DARE even think something bad about them, I'll rip your heart out with my bare hands while playing some acoustic "The Cure" with them" These things are magical. Superb. Incredible. Can't even think of enough good things to say about them. They are astronomically superior to my older "nice" speakers (some JBL LX-66 towers), and miles ahead of my other "audiophile" (???) loudspeakers (a Definitive Technology bipolar set). Yesterday, I was listening to the latest Marcus Miller recording in them (M2 - highly recommended), then decided to do a test. After listening to them for about half an hour, I went upstairs and tried the disc on my Definitive Technology setup. I am not kidding when I say my ears hurt after barely 1 minute of them playing. The sound coming out from those speakers was undescribably bad. It had piercing highs, screeching mids, loose lows. And all this time I thought they were great! Now, the question that begs to be answered. If I tried, say, a set of Energy Veritas speakers would I change my mind about piston speakers? Or, once you experience electrostatic technology, you never go back? What's your opinion?
