Hello all, I just purchased a ML 5.1 system with Ascent I front speakers, cinema center, descent sub and script rears. I'm new to electrostatics but not totally unfamiliar with them. I wasn't looking for a surround system, just new front speakers, but this seemed like a good deal. I'm a little concerned with the age of the ascents and their panel life but they sounded great to me...acoustic instruments and mixed voices sound so naturally real. Good to be here.
