My setup is:

2 Martin Logan Motion 12s
2 Martin Logan Motion 10s
1 Martin Logan Center C
2 Martin Logan Dynamo 500 subwoofers


I am thinking about trading this for a pair of Martin Logan Aeion I electrostatic speakers with a Martin Logan Cinema Center channel.



This will be used mostly for Home theater movies.. And While those Aeion I use to retai for over $3500.00 they are a little older. They are in great condition and well taken care of.

If anyone can help out with some opinions would greatly appreciate..

I'd leave the speakers and upgrade the subs.

And I'm pretty sure I won't be alone in that recommendation.

;)

Room size? Budget? Etc.?

+1.

One or two good subs will add a lot more to your movies than new speakers will.

Klipsch RF-62II, RC-500, RS-400, SVS PC12+,
Def Tech SC8000
Harman Kardon AVR 1600
PS3, Apple TV, Sharp 70" Qattron

I also have a klipsch rw-12d.

My main problem is dialogue I just can't get it to the point where I'm happy. I've aimed it towards my ears

I have audyssey xt32.

It was a even trade. Was not looking to spend money
