Coming from the audio world, I've got a pair of Apogee Duetta Signatures that I absolutely love. I've got an Apogee Centarus center channel that has "tweeter" panel that matches the larger Duetta's well.
For stereo sources, they image like crazy but have a very small sweet spot. Movies are great as long as you're in the sweet spot. Sit off to one side and the sound somewhat disappears.
I've seen some posts about Maggies being used in HT but am wondering if electrostatics in general don't radiate enough to be effective HT speakers. Do I really need to be looking back at cones that don't throw such a tight image?
I am very happy with my Martin Logan system. Sequel II's for the mains, Logos for the center, and scripts for the rear surrounds. As with any speaker system taking time to properly set it up helps with playback.
I used to have Martin Logan CLS for a combo music HT system. While the sound was superb, the sweet spot was indeed tiny. This was only a problem of course with guests and when I'd wander around the room.
This was one of the reasons I switched to my Gallo Refs.
