Kinds of Speakers?

What sort of Speakers are y'all bringing?

Aside from all the various Carver ribbons, I wondered if anyone was bringing any other sort of planar/ribbon/electrostatic speakers?

Just curious...

I know that a lot of the folks who attended CarverFest were pretty impressed by the speakers I brought--my new little (well, by ML standards...) Martin Logan Scenarios. I've got them hooked up in my system now at home, pulling duty as rear channels in my 5-1 (minus the .1) system, and they sound sweet.

I wish I was able to bring the Sequels but they were just too big to truck out to the 'Fest. Had I brought the Sequels I would have never been able to bring all my other cool gear...

Anyway, next year, I hope to have new "main" speakers--Martin Logan Vantages. my sweetie tells me that with the purchase of the S7t's and the Scenarios, I've pretty much tapped out the "stereo upgrade kitty" for the year, so the Vantages are a long way off, but hopefully I can have a pair by next CarverFest...

Anyway, a lot of you who listened to my rig said you had not seen the new ML's. Well, here is a pic of the new Vantages, and man are they sexy...

And if you click on the pic, it will take you to Martin Logan's website, to a page all about the Vantage.

If you live anywhere near a Tweeter or a Magnolia Audio, I'd HIGHLY recommend giving the Vantage a listen, although I'll let you know right now, that I have yet to hear ML's in a "box store" wher they sounded right. If you REALLY want to hear them sing, go to a "boutique" audiphile-type store and listen. I think you'll be amazed--I was, and I already own ML's...

Those MLs sure look pretty......I'm thinking AL-IIIs for me this year, maybe a set of plats if I can find them......Either way, I've got a challenge; they have to be black and in great condition.....
You can't fix stupid.
