I have these speakers with a Wells Audio Majestic Integrated amp and just love these two together !

I've heard the whole line and I think the Classic esl 9's are the sweet spot in the whole new line! The larger panels are just made for bigger rooms if you ask me.

No cone speakers can match the mid-range and highs of ESL's if you ask me!

Here's a review

Thanks for chiming in Rick. I have the older (cheaper) Theos myself - ever heard those? Must be nice to have two 8" woofers instead of one.

Does it say "Made in Canada" on the box?

Thumbs up

A friend of mine just got some new Tekton Design Double Impact SE speakers and I like them a lot better than my new Martin Logans!

I'm going sell my Martin Logan ESL9's and buy some new Tekton Mini Ulfberht speakers. These speakers are only $7,500 a pair! I never thought I would buy cone speakers again!

Exclamation

Even the standard $3K Tekton double Impacts are better than the new big Martin Logan Renaissance ESL 15A's!!

Wow, you really seem to thrive on jumping to such conclusive declarations. Being dipolar electrostatic speakers the MLs are going to have a completely different type of sound characteristic than any box speaker including the Tektons. Each has its own set of benefits and weaknesses so it will likely be a matter of taste as to which any specific person might prefer. Rarely are there such absolutes in high end audio, to each their own.
