Craig said:I've been considering acquiring a ML sub lately. I need to complete my HT system and would like to try a sub with my 2 channel setup. Tweeter stores in my area are out of Descents but have more ML Descent scheduled to arrive in the near future. They also tell me the Descent i is should be arriving in mid November. I'm hoping they'll discount the older sub model since they still have more to sell to make room for the "i" models.
Their profit per unit. I hate to be cynical but the "i" means increased profit for the new corporate owners.Craig said:About a $295 price increase for the Descent i. By the way, what did they improve with the "i" model?

I love it!!!Robin said:Yes, I've had "Joeyitis" since before "The Kid" was even born.
They have changed the amplifier to one that produces 900 watts on the Depth i in addition to a cabinet desighn overhaul. The Descent gets a 2100 watt amplifier and a redesigned cabinet. I'm sure there are internal changes as well but I don't know exactly what they are yet. A ten percent increase in for these upgrades are reasonable and its normal for a legitimate business to increase the cost of improved product and to pass that on to the customer.Their profit per unit.

Lugano,lugano said:I am a diehard ML fan, and I think you all know that. But sincerely I can not find a valid reason for spending THAT much money on a Martin Logan sub, when there are some companies out there - like Velodyne and REL - which are specialized in subwoofers and make outstanding products. I mean, Martin Logan is the undisputed emperor of electrostatic speakers, but if I were a Ferrari fan I still wouldn't buy a Ferrari suv only because it's made by Ferrari...
I really don't think they would do that just for a spec rating.The higher power is meaningless and I suspect it was done to keep up with competition's high power claims, for the more ignorant consumer who buys a sub on power output specs.
I'd have to see the new Descent i in person,but based on the picture I like how the original Descent looks better,more rounded and less boxy.I do however like the covers over the cones of the Descent i. just my .02roberto said:Hello...go to this place...
