    Larry,


    Very interesting history of your speakers. Very familiar actually as I've had ESL 57s, KLH9s, Dayton Wright XG8 Mk2, Servo Stats, Many Soundlabs and many MLs.


    FR graphs are way down on my list of what's important to me.

    Hi Scott!

    Perhaps you are interested in my setup. A description and photos are at
    http://www.martinloganowners.com/for...t=larry+hardin

    Like you, I'm an old guy--even older, going on 85. My hearing cuts off at about 8.5K and my arthritic knees and back mean that I can't dig into the deep corner to fix my ailing subwoofer amp, so I am limited to the 40 Hz that I can extract from my ESLs. The positioning of my present ESLs is essentially the same as that of its predecessors, Quad 67s, ServoStaik 1s, and Aerius'. Imaging and sound staging are about right for my musical preferences, which are mostly classical as heard in an auditorium. If you are interested in ambience extraction, I would be happy to share my experiences with two mini-Canton speakers hidden away above my head. I can also share a quick-and-dirty FR graph of my speakers in my room.

    Best,

    Larry

    No, that's a Caliburn, which is a $100,000 plus table plus arm and cart. That may well be my next cart though.


    I have a VPI Classic Signature in rosewood.

    Is your turntable similar to the one in the Jack DeJohnette video from the album 'Return'?
