    Probably the last set of speakers you’ll ever buy..they are that good!
    Nothing touches these at the price . I promise you these are worth taking a risk over. If you’ve never heard electrostats then you,ll be amazed. I play full on rock music with these , don’t think they are just for classical music lovers only!

    sound revellation
    1st pardon my spelling. 2nd this is long but I need to explain. I've been a music lover since the age of 4. I am now 71. As you can assume I started life with the magic of tubes there was no solid state to be found. In 1954 my mother bought a tube zenith console consisting of a radio and record player. monaural. when I played that sucker I couldn't keep my feet still. It lasted about 7 years until and it made the long journey. Being a blue caller worker I could never afford the good stuff. over the years I had variety of RCA, NAD, carver, and Denon all pretty good stuff but nothing magical. Remember the pallet forgets. A couple of weeks ago I took my wife shopping at Mace's while I went my way to BestBuy to browse. I walked by a music display not paying any attention to it until I past it. I said to myself holy crap went back to the display to a pair op martin Logan 15A. Remember the pallet never forgets. But at 15 grand they were way out of my league. The sales lady said she had a pair of last years summit x's. listening to them I was sold. after 67 years I'm a very happy guy.

    Quality at a low cost.
    Have been using Summit X for more than 12 months and I am still amazed by the pleasure I extract from EVERY listening session. Even powered by an old 50W Rotel 840BX2 all you get is music. Krell 700cx is brilliant to awesome but huge power is not a requirement for enjoyment just improves imaging depth and stability. Has become the item of desire for all my friends and visitors. Thanks Martin Logan for an outstanding product I cannot live without.

    25 year wait
    I have been heavilly mucking around with audio since I was a teenager in the late 1970's. I was absolutely obsessed with audio purity, and in the age of LPs I was NEVER satisfied. In the early 90s I heard a pair of Martin Logans and my audio life was transformed. Their transparency was amazing. I had never heard anything like them. Unfortunately, at the time, they were out of my reach financially. Almost a quarter century later I finally puchased my dream speakers - the Summit X. While they are not broken in yet, they are so very sweet. I really cannot convey how demanding I am audiologically in this note, but you will have to trust me on this one point - from one of the fussiest recorded music listeners on the planet, these speakers were soooo worth the 24 year wait!

    It has taken me well over a year to find a pair of speakers my ears and heart felt passionate about. I listened to the likes of B&W, Focal, Steinway, Dynaudio, Kef, McIntosh XRT1K and XR100 [Note: McIntosh speakers shockingly disappointing performance - frankly, both are an abomination of a speaker] and many others...very many others. None of them aroused my ears. That is [wait for it] until I listened to the Martin Logan Summit X electrostatic speakers. Within minutes of listening to these babies - I knew I had found THE PERFECT SET OF SPEAKERS. Without hesitation, I purchased them immediately. The Summit X speakers performance are hypnotic, will awaken you and are breath taking. I really can not come up with any adequate adjectives to describe the perfection of these speakers. I can say this, though, I am now hearing, for example; sound depth in vinyl records that I have never heard before. Their that good. I was completely unaware that my old vinyl from the late 70s through present had anything new to share with me. With these new speakers, I now get the chance to play all my vinyl as if they were a purchased for the very first time. What thrill to listen to these records again with the same thrill as the day I peeled the cellophane wrap from their protective sleeves. The Summit X speakers are in a league of their own and well underpriced given the competition. In fact, a bargain! Thank you Martin Logan for making it safe and fun to listen to music with both passion and excitement. Wow!

    MARTINLOGAN SUMMIT X LOUDSPEAKER (HI-FI+)
    The MartinLogan Summit X is one such product, delivering reference-grade performance that you’d struggle to match at double the price. This could spell the end of monkey coffins for many listeners. Go hear now!

    MartinLogan Summit X Loudspeakers
    The Summit X is the latest step in MartinLogan’s ongoing quest for electrostatic perfection...When these speakers make their special magic, they’ll likely astound and emotionally move even the most experienced and hardened audiophile.

    MartinLogan Summit X Speakers
    No matter what kind of music you like to listen to, the Summit X will deliver the goods. The main strength of the Summit X is that it throws a huge soundfield in all directions, giving the listener a very immersive experience. This is the MartinLogan magic at its best. These are speakers that you will respond to strongly

    MartinLogan Summit X
    The key point is that a planar transducer is able to synthesize the impression of a height perspective with reasonable realism, whereas a small midrange or mid-woofer driver tends to collapse image size to a tidy point within the soundstage. Perhaps it’s a personal preference or a question of being within one’s comfort zone, but when I kick back to enjoy the music it’s far easier for me to accept the Summit’s version of reality. No subwoofers need apply. I’ve had no interest in complicating matters with an external subwoofer. And why should I with bass extension approaching 20Hz and superlative midbass dynamics. My enthusiasm for the Summit X has not diminished over the past several years. Speakers have come and gone, but it is still one of the main pillars of my reference system, and in my estimation, a classic in the making.

    MARTIN LOGAN SUMMIT X LOUDSPEAKER REVIEW
    For me, Martin Logan’s biggest XStat panel is a tour-de-force of loudspeaker engineering – one that works every bit as well as they claim, measurement and listening show. You simply cannot get better clarity than this, you can’t get a more even sound free from phasiness and you’ll never hear violin sounding as it is meant to, except from this big XStat panel. It’s line source nature paints up a massive sound stage, one on which images are pin sharp. Again, I’ve never heard better – and I cannot imagine being able to… Loudspeakers don't get much better than this

    I’d beg borrow or steal to get the funds now , they just don’t come up for sale that often. I may regret the sale , but can’t justify keeping such a thoroughbred of a speaker

    Sorry the late reply. Just got back. I am trying to combine a trip to Sutton Coalfields for 3.00pm on Saturday, which according to Google Maps is 1 1/2 hours from Worcester. I am 1 hour 15 mins from Worcester. So i was thinking of getting to you about 11.30/12.00pm to give me an hour to listen etc and then giving me time to get to SC. How does that sound to you.

    re system I have Apogee Mini-Grands fed by Krell KSA-150, and also Classe CA-201, Aragon Soundstage. Also have Nuvista Amp and CD player. In my office i have Naim Superuniti feeding Rogers LS3/5A and AB1.

    I have more which i will tell you tomorrow.
