After purchasing Mapleshade plinths my friends were impressed with the results. Not to waste an opportunity I arranged to sell them at cost and purchase the top of the line Mapleshade plinths in a cherry finish. They are not only works of art but sound fantastic. The music floats between the speakers with no hint that the sound originates from the Summit panels or woofers. Bass notes are tight and defined. Instruments sound more realistic than ever. Of all my tweaks and accessories this has made the most impact.

7. Comments and/or stories about your Martin Logan experience:
The Logans fill my medium-large room with beautiful music. I purchased my first system 30 years ago--a Marantz quadraphonic CD4 system! :eek: Listening to the same music (Isao Tomita, Snowflakes Are Dancing) shows that you don't need 4 speakers to have suround sound. The Logans are magical. :)

After reading a posting from a user praising Sanders speaker cables, I checked Canuck Audio Mart and found them for sale in my area, along with 11a’s. For less than $350CAN, I thought I’d give the cables a try. The seller delivered them within hours, and I’ve had them running for a week. Sanders claims the cables are designed for the unique load presented by electrostatic speakers. The most noticeable improvement is in the high frequencies, and I don’t detect any negatives such as reduction in the bass. Amazing value for the price.
