My Sound System

Say what you want about "boys and their toys," but this collection of hardware allows me to escape the foolish world as it is and dive ears-first into the MUSIC.

For anyone who is interested, the towers are Martin Logan "reQuest" hybrid electrostatic speakers. The black monoblocks are Mark Levinson ML-2 power amplifiers, and the center commode is a Vandersteen 2-W subwoofer.

I don't know the Martin Logans (I am a Bowers & Wilkins man) but I sure know Mark Levinson and Vandersteen by reputation.  Killer system!

Electrostatics aren't everybody's thing, Idaho, though they sure as hell are MINE.  They're also not easy to make, and, unless you have a design like the Martin-Logans, they tend to be VERY directional, with a single "sweet spot."

And yeah, you can do better ... if you have five or six figures in your wallet, and no, I'm NOT kidding!

The one time I listened to electrostatics, it was the best fidelity I'd ever heard.  I wonder why everyone doesn't make them.

Indeed, I do have a turntable, Napoleon, and a pretty fair collection of vinyl.  As for the speakers, trust me: they sound at least as good as they look!

I see you've still got a record player and those speakers look awesome.
