I went over to a Magnolia design center yesterday and was struck by an interesting thought while talking with the rep there. I asked his opinion between B&W, Sonus Faber, and Martin Logan which were the brands they had on display and he didn't give me a straight answer. Instead he categorized the speakers. He said that for HT his preferred B&W and for 2.1 he preferred Martin Logan. I'm a big B&W fan I've got two systems with their speakers, however I must say I was really impressed by both Sonus Faber and the Martin Logan's I listened to. They were both $10k speakers, but the Martin Logans' had a spatial quality that defied their positioning. They had them placed only about 3ft apart, yet sat me nearly 10 ft away. Obviously not an equilateral triangle, yet the sound stage and imaging were amazing. So on to my question Which speakers do you prefer for 2 channel listening and why?
