7. Comments and/or stories about your Martin Logan experience: From the first time I heard a ML speaker, I had the feeling like I had discovered something that nobody else knew about. Never in my life had I heard something so fast and accurate. I had always been chasing the perfect sound.. and since I bought my first pair of logans, I haven't looked back. Mostly I use my system for movies, but I'm slowly beginning to build up a collection of dvd audio disks as I've discovered that it's a night and day difference from a regular audio cd.

Cool system...

Ryan,

Beautiful system... Your Aeon's and Theater i look great. I like the stand you have for the Theater i. It would be interesting to see more of your listening area, the Scenario's and Script i's? I noticed you have a PS2 with a blue controler for gaming. Do you have an XBox (live)? or are you planning to acquire XBox 360? Your Panisonic Plasma TV is awesome! I love the Plasma TV stand... :D

Very Cool HT system... :D

Cheers

I see your Theater/Fed Ex issue has been taken care of.....Doh!

How do you like the SVS? I'm saving up for a sub (it's going to take years) and either a cyliner or box Ultra are on my list of potentials.

Hey thanks! No (i's) in mine, they're all the pre-i editions. I'm alot more into gaming on my computer (no vested interest in getting an x-box, who has the time!), I have the PS2, but will more than likely be relocating it to the 36" sony xbr that the plasma displaced since I'm paranoid about burn-in. I will be taking some more pictures soon! :D

Yes, FINALLY! Jim Power at Martin Logan got things all patched up. These speakers are apparently much more rugged than most people would imagine, the components just needed a new box, everything else with the exception of one of the tweaters was still tip top.

I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE my SVS. I purchased it when the Velodyne I used to have decided to give up the ghost. I used to think with the velodyne that I was getting adequate representation of bass.. boy was I wrong! You can FEEL the pressure of the room change when the SVS gets some good signal. Add to that absolutely stellar support.. those guys at SVS know what they're doing, read all their emails, and will take the time to ask the important questions before recommending a good bass solution. It's worth EVERY penny. :D

Dolfin's...

Ryan,

I like your Dolfin collection, both front and rear. I see where you get your web handle... ;) The rear of your system looks great. The photo looks good. I like your discription of your subwoofer SVS... :D

Excellent system, Dude... :D

Cheers

Heh.. loving the SVS comments. Here's a photo for scale, and another just because. I'm about 5'11" @ 260 pounds and that thing gave me a run for my money getting it into the house. :D

Ok, once more, DANG that thing is huge!

BTW, anytime you're in the metro Detroit area, stop by and organize my cables. I feel like the back of my rack has grown corn rows.

Hi,
Nice job on the harnessing. In the future, try to keep the AC cables seperated from the audio cables, you'll get less induced hum that way.

Not one bit of hum as of yet. The monster cables seem to be incredibly well shielded, and I keep the nordost run independant of any other wire run.

Thanks for the concern though. :)

Once again Dolfin, Thank You for the kind words on my system.

You also have a very nice system, but it looks like both our systems suffer from a bad case of the cramps. The speakers, audio stand, and TV are so close together that it really chokes the sound. It would really help if you could pull out those Aeon’s and get them out in front of the audio stand and TV, it has made a world of difference for me. When it comes to electrostats you should never be afraid to experiment with placement, a few inches can mean the difference between liking the sound of your system and being intoxicated by the sound.

Take care

Great setup. Esp admire your wire harnassing. Makes my setup look like a rat's nest. Did you post pics of your side surrounds and what size room do you have? As strong as you appear, only the SVS Ultra 2 good give you a run for your money. :)

It may look better, but the harnessing is not a good thing for sonics. This will cause RF pollution. If it is required to have wires touch, it should happen at a right angle.

Hi,
While technically this is true, the only wires that carry enough current to affect nearby wires are the AC power and speaker cables, those should be kept seperate from signal wiring. The low power signal wires don't carry enough current to induce any significant voltage in another wire, and optical cables are completely immune to this.
