Why a Martin Logan Owners Forum?

Martin Logan Ltd is unquestionably the largest and most successful manufacturer of electrostatic loudspeakers in the world. Whatever preference one has for audio equipment and manufacturers, the Martin Logan name is relatively well-known and respected in the high-end audio community. The number of thousands of Martin Logan speaker owners attest to its popularity and this website is devoted to them. A site of this nature allows people from around the world to develop, exchange, and foster ideas and information on their favorite loudspeaker company. The Martin Logan Owners forum is a perfect meeting place for this exchange and brings all ML owners and fellow audiophiles together. None of us here would claim to be an “expert” in Martin Logan products, though there are some who are a little more knowledgeable. In fact, learning from each other is one of the ways of discovering about the potential of these wonderful speakers; hence the need to form an online forum where audio hobbyists and even casual listeners can collaborate.

In addition, the many features of this site allow anyone to participate in a number of ways. In the member systems section, you can browse and view pictures of some of our member’s systems and see their equipment preferences and set-up. In fact, if you already have a Martin Logan set-up, we welcome you to join this growing list of proud owners by submitting a photo of your system from that section.

Reviews on ML speakers and other associated equipment continues to be added to provide viewers with a variety of choices and the limitless and challenging, even fun process of matching up components.
