    I bought my first ML speakers, the SL3, in 1999 and have been using them with great pleasure until a few weeks ago. Then I surprisingly got an offer of a 2-years-old pair of Summit X's for only a quarter of the original price, which I couldn't resist. These new speakers pushed my system to another audiophile dimension! Although the SL3 sounded pretty good and accurate, they lacked in bass power and precision. The Summit X is a huge improvement what that is concerned, and they also provide a larger virtual stage. Together with the excellent Accupase amp, my system now (almost) doesn't know any volume limit, and I like to play it loud! (Poor neighbours ;-) )

    Beautiful system. Did you already have that amp, or was it upgraded as well?

    Hi bikerneil,

    I originally owned an Accuphase E-406V which I recently replaced by the E-470 after 20 years of use. My Accuphase dealer informed me about the Summit X's, which were offered by one of his customers who had severe WAF problems with the Martin Logans ;-)

    Regards, Stefan
