    I just read this in the latest e-mail newsletter from www.audiorevolution.com . MartinLogan will have some of its speakers in 178 Tweeter stores by the end of next year. Most stores will have MartinLogan's entry-level speakers, but some stores in "key markets" will have MartinLogan's high-end products. Here is a link to the full story:

    Tweeter bought local chain HiFi Buys here in Atlanta and they have also been selling Martin Logans for a while.
    This is definitely good news for a broader distribution of one of the better high end brands.
    The new Aeon at $3K was on the Recommended Products list in TAS this month. I think a review is in process.

    As long as I've known about Tweeter, they've carried ML. Magnolia HiFi, which was formerly the west coast partner of Tweeter, carries the exact same lines, though that may change now that they have changed ownership.

    I spent a lot of money at tweeter (my HDTV, receiver, DVD Player), but not a penny more will they get from me. If I want Martin Logans, which I do, I will buy them from any source besides Tweeter.

    Tweeter sold me a $1000 DVD player including their 2 year extended warranty with promises of replacement if the unit has to be brought back for the same problem 3 times. Its been back 4 times (for intermittent video and audio break up, freesing etc). the first two times they replaced all sorts of parts but when that didn't do it, the third time, time they just said "no problem found". The thing has been in the shop as long as, if not longer than, I've had it in the house. AFter much aggravation, and having had made obvious to me that there was going to be nothing happening with my player, I resolved, I will NEVER EVER spend any money at tweeter again. And EVERYBODY who asks me for advice on A/V equipment gets guided away from tweeter.

    The whole process, the attitude of the manager, their procedures, are disgraceful.

    I have never seen MartinLogan speakers at Tweeter stores in Delaware, New Jersey, and the Philly area. These Tweeter stores used be under the banner of Bryn Mawr Stereo & Video, which never carried MartinLogan as far as I know.
