I do have a new Martin Logan Focus, a hybrid electrostat with dual sealed 6.5's mounted on wall right now which doesn't suck (it sounds glorious actually), but it's also a $3500 speaker....and yes, its all the suck speakers which drove me to that price point for an on-wall center.
Having said that, Mark, can you confirm that what we're looking at is a speaker with dual tweeters and three (hopefully all active) midbass/midrange drivers? Is it a 2 way, 2.5 way or three way?
I read your review of that Martin Logan Focus, and it seems like a neat design. ML does make the EFX hybrid electrostat on-walls as well, I wonder how those would match up.
