MartinLogan Owners (MLO)

Help Support MartinLogan Owners (MLO):

I have sold Martin Logan’s for over 30 years. It’s been a great time and like one of my best friends often says if you can see through them then you dont want them.
TTOCS, what a nice video on speaker setup. I agree with this guy 100%. In the testing that I have been involved with over the years, he is spot on. It is all in the setup. This guy really has put it all in a nice presentation and offers his DVD for $50. I wish ML could pin that video so it is front and center on the forum. Thanks for the video!

Yeah, that video helped my understanding a bit more about what to expect before even doing it. It is responsible for my speakers having the extreme toe-in that they do. It sounds the best in my room, has a great soundstage, and the magic really happens with some recordings seeming so real that you could reach out and touch the performers.

I may just have to get that DVD, thanks for sharing that info!
Good to see you again!
Again? Do I know you from another forum?

Sorry, I don't remember. Haven't been on that site in years.
Angie, Bernard wrote to me an email, asking to contact you for help. Here is his email: Bobby, As I mentioned before, I can no longer post in MLO. I keep getting a message that I have insufficient privileges, and that attempts to send messages to my email ID fail. I can’t contact Tom.I don’t see the PM link, so could you please message him.Thanks, Bernard. bernard.dacosta@sympatico.ca
Thanks for the help, regards from Costa Rica,
Hi Timobi

I noticed from the Martin Logan Owners forum that you have 13As. I've just ordered a pair but they won't arrive till January - I'm in UK.

Could you let me know of a dimension that's not on the ML site or User Guide? What's the distance between the front and rear spikes? I ask because my present speakers stand on 60 x 30 cm (23 1/2" x 11 3/4") slate slabs. I'm hoping these will be good for the MLs. My guess from photos of the side of the speakers is that the distance is about 49 cm (19 1/4") in which case I won't need to look for new supports. I have nice timber floors that won't appreciate spikes, so these slabs with a sound absorbent pad below seem to work well.

Many thanks

Hello Jonathan,

I was referred to you by another member here, Georgehifi.

He suggested you may have knowledge of the RTR DR-1 speakers ?

I have a complete pair, with panels and amplifiers all working well.

However, the original twin 10" and single 12" drivers in each cabinet have been replaced by DaiIchi drivers.

I'd like to try and source the originals, if possible. If not, I'd like to try and find the parameters to allow me to find modern equivalents.

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome, Broadstone1! We're at opposite ends of the US north-south axis, but we do share two things--many years of living with electrostats and decrepitude. I'm 82 . My right-ear hearing drops off around 6 K and my left ear at 8.5 K. I've been happy with my present system ( System #467) for quite some time although I'm always interested in meaningful improvements for my living-room based system within my financial constraints. I've not supposed that I could do much about my age-related hearing loss, at least as far as music reproduction is concerned. Have you actually succeeded in making useful progress to address this problem? If so, I'd be interested in hearing details.

This one here (1-801-720) is 12" x 18" x 3" and is $78.00. This is the size that I went with.
Yes Thanx I found a few stone yards here but have to find time to call them.
Some stone yards wont cut small pieces the prices and shipping on those precision slabs are really high
