    My brother and I were looking at that yesterday. He pointed out that while it is a great deal (relative to retail), it is equal to a Mastercraft and a half...or two slightly used Mastercrafts. That was more than enough to convince me to stick with my Clarities!

    If only money was not a concern...where's my lottery ticket?

    Amazing how our perspective of "Cheap" can change. Think about it, when does $50,000 become cheap?

    I personally don’t want a pair, even if I had the money.

    I am just not interested.

    They are big, really big, they really need there own acoustically treated room, detected electronics. I am more interested in matching speakers, like running six ascents or summits speakers then a pair of statements. I am the kind of person that needs to hear the gear first before I really get excited about it. It’s one of the reasons why I don’t understand why you are so gung ho about getting a pair of summits that you have yet to hear?

    After wanting a pair of prodigy’s for so long and now Martin Logan releasing a smaller speaker with a big sound like that of the prodigy’s I have grown to like the idea more and more of running a smaller speaker that can easily visually and sonically disappear.

    It’s just a personal preference.

    P.S. when I see the Statements I think of that line from the movie Sherk “Perhaps he’s compensating for something?”

    I figured that if they are able to improve on the house sound of Martin Logan, then it must be good. Call me a blind follower, but I believe. Perhaps faith? LOL...

    Actually, I really really like the Summits' appearance. That whole industrial/minimalistic look is the kind of look that I was hoping ML was going to move towards since I heard about ML a year or two ago. So I guess you take the sexy looks and add to that an awesome Martin Logan house-sound... and you have my dream speaker.

    When and if I do buy a pair, I will have to audition it, but for now... let's keep the Summits on my wishlist.

    That's a $10,000 leap of faith.

    Still got to hear it first... but more than likely, its a good type of faith!

    Ahh, we can all dream cant we? Perhaps at that level, there are better speakers - who knows... I certainly dont. When I'm knocking at that level's door, then I'll be sure to make an informed choice, until then... dream dream dream.

    Maybe Jeff Z will pick them up, so we all can go over to his house for movie night.
