Has anyone else heard these new speakers? I heard them at the Capital Audiofest and they were shown at the NY Audio show. Greg Takesh has done an incredible job with his design, especially for the price. I played all kinds of music for over an hour and they sounded great, very transparent, wide and deep soundstage, full range, detailed at low volume but can play loud without strain. How loud, we drew complaints from the hotel guests at the end of my Friday session-LOUD! Musical, albeit overused, is how I would describe them. I just wanted to keep playing music, not just audiophile recordings but regular music. Keb Mo, Fleetwood Mac, Eagles, Earl Klugh, Diana Krall, Styx, James Taylor, Flim & The BB's, Holst Planets, Jazz at the Pawnshop, Tracy Chapman, Joni Mitchell, Green Day, Stones, Cat Stevens, Coldplay, Rodrigo et Gabriella and Santana are some of the artists I listened to, I enjoyed all of them and didn't want to leave the room. These have a ribbon tweeter, planar magnetic mid, 2 light 8" midbass units in the tall tower, and 2 powered 8" separate subs, all for just over $3K. It's a line source about 6.5' tall, the ribbon and planar magnetic drivers appear to be about 48" long, and it's a 4 ohm load at 90db efficiency. Made in the USA, New Jersey. Great job Greg!

Try to audition these before you spend $3k on other speakers, you will not be disappointed.

The form factor maybe, hybrid planar with woofers at the bottom, but ML is electrostatic and GT is planar manetic and true ribbon. What specs are you looking for? Beautiful woodwork with choice of veneers.

90 db with 4 ohm impedance, about 6.5' tall, 12" wide, I'd guess 30 to 20k.
