    Makes sense. Is it the finished product or the path it takes to get there that supplies the satisfaction?

    Hello, just joined

    Price increases are insane, as is the lack of supply of so many things. I will be so glad when this is all over. Sometimes it feels like it will never end. We gave up on building a new home now. Building prices are jacked up bad. Cost of lumber alone is 3x the normal.

    Ascent speakers

    Does anyone know if the new ML speakers have a better design to keep the panels from slipping down?

    Ascent speakers

    So you engineered your own brackets? Im not real fond of the ones ML gave me, but they seem to work ok. One set that I installed ended up slipping because I didnt get the screw through the hole on the bracket correctly. It was tricky for me, you can't see if the screw goes through the hole, you...

    If nobody here can help, then contact Martin Logan. I think it is Ron Hayes at ML that can help you out if it is possible to fix that.

    Advice...

    One thing I would want to know is how old are the panels on them? If they are 15 years old or more then they probably need new panels. Not sure how much they are, but my Prodigies were about $2800. So if buying them, make sure the price is fair because youll probably want to order new panels as...

    I put in a sport exhaust and some stiffer Bilstein shocks, but it's not a true race car. She's just not a sportscar fan. I'm with the PCA here in the Ohio River Valley region. I need to start going to events again! Since covid-19 hit, I've been hibernating. If Chicago wasn't so far I might take...

    Tried to get my wife to ride in my 911 today and she refused! She doesnt like it. She says it rides like "a bucket of bolts"! Its too rough for her liking, and a bit loud too I suspect. Guess I will just have to enjoy it alone.

    Should I Re-panel my CLS IIz or Replace Them with a Newest Pair of ML?

    I think more and more owners are doing it these days. Well worth the wait. I think that if the owner decides to sell the speakers a few years later, they should be able to recover most of what they spent on the new panels. Another thing to consider, resale value.

    ML ASCENT

    Yeah, I lost high frequencies and also volume. The receiver I use for a preamp had to turn up the gain more than 11 db on the speakers. Take a look at that.

    You won't regret it. The only part that really sucks is the wait for the panels. Are they still about 3 months out?

    OLED TV image burn in, mine has it now

    Well, the Nano LG I have coming is about $300 more expensive. I'm like you though and try to not connect higher price with better quality. It's hard to disassociate the two. I didnt chose the LG because it was more expensive though, it's the features it has and my past experiences. I've had 3...

    OLED TV image burn in, mine has it now

    Now I have to shell out more $$ to have my installer come back again.

    OLED TV image burn in, mine has it now

    Brand new out of the box $2200 85 inch Sony TV bad out of the box. Seems everything I buy now is broken. The new Martin Logan Focus speaker I bought had a lose speaker terminal. This has a back light failure according to the light blink series of 4 flashes. Turn it on and a few minutes later it...

    Should I Re-panel my CLS IIz or Replace Them with a Newest Pair of ML?

    They sound incredible dont they! Better than I expected. I never heard new Prodigies before. Heard some new 11a speakers at the store the other day and they did not sound overall as good to me. The bass was a bit better though. New, those are $10,000.

    Should I Re-panel my CLS IIz or Replace Them with a Newest Pair of ML?

    Is it really possible to buy newer ML electrostats for only $3000 that will sound better than your CLS speakers with new panels? I don't think so. Another thing, buying used speakers adds in an unknown factor. What kind of problems might the speakers have that you don't know about? For those...

    Obsessive hobbies....

    I've got a close friend that has been running his own IT company now between 25 and 30 years and he is similar. He does his main business but also fixes up old pinball machines. He then finds businesses like bars that would like to have his machines there and basically rents the space I guess...
