I was having a heated argument with somebody on-line about speakers. He claimed that all MartinLogan models (except the Prodigy) were crap, and that they couldn't be driven by an Adcom amp correctly. That left me thinking. The only speakers I've ever auditioned on the price bracked of the ML's (I own the smallest stereo model - Studios?) are the Energy XL series and the B&W Nautilus. The MLs seemed to be the clearest, most open speakers, while the other ones were a lot more dynamic. Is this guy right? Are ML's really all reputation and no sound quality?
