OK I have in my possession a pair of CLX from Martin Logan. They are factory refurbished and I’m really torn. Part of me wants to take these as my own and set them up and keep them forever. However as a dealer that’s really just not very practical. I know I’m lucky lucky lucky to have this problem but that doesn’t make it any less difficult to decide. All you CLX owners out there I guess I’m just calling for you to tell me once again how amazing the speakers are LOL I’ve sold and set up a lot of CLX and one thing that I can tell you almost across-the-board the people that have gotten them and set up the clx with properly matching equipment and a capable room, usually at that point they stop looking to upgrade or change their speakers! If you have seal exes or you had them and sold them please tell me your thoughts. I know what my heart is telling me to do 😊

Well Shawn you know where I stand. I expect to not look any more to update. I’ve made a lot of changes as you are very well aware and the speakers just keep giving. I’m especially looking forward to my next upgrade. Keep them!

Thanks Mike! I know that you love yours and wouldnt trade them for anything. I know what my heart and ears want. Being a dealer just makes it difficult. Especially since they are discontinued. I wish there was a way to keep producing them. Maybe I with a few CLX lovers could start a company just to produce and sell them! Im going to fly that up the flag pole at ML. I'm guessing you would be interested in being one of those investors? Anyone else out here interested? LONG LIVE THE CLX!!!! Shawn

Maybe if a bunch of customers contact them directly, wanting to order the CLX,they might consider producing them on a custom basis. They certainly have the capability to do so I bet. After all, they still produce panels for speakers that are more than 20 years old.

Shawn, to date the most enjoyable demo I have ever enjoyed was years back with my friend Terry Menasker (owner, Overture Audio, Wilmington, De) , we listened for several hours afrter he closed his store. If I had the proper sized room they probably would occupy it and I would not have ventured from ML .........

Dave- you were royalty. What a treat. Terry was the best-such a gentleman.
I had the privilege of having a surprise BD party there years ago. Somehow my friends cajoled Terry into having an after hours party there. It was like being 16 and set free in the best toy store on earth and able to share it with good friends.

Possibly I guess that's what this thread is somewhat about. They did come directly from Martin Logan in they do have the full five year warranty. So my guess is it's the closest to a new pair available on the planet. You can pm or text or call me to discuss.

Thanks Shawn. I just saw the pair on Audiogon-assume that's them. I think they are still in dream territory for me.
