vienna on ebay yesterday
I don't know how flat you are talking about. Or your budget. But I was looking for Vienna Acoustics on ebay yesterday or the day before. There is an excellent price on the flatter Schoenberg set. Myself, Im not looking for such, don't have a flat screen. Generally speaking, larger cabinets means better sound. But I guess some companies deal with the compromise better than others, which I do not know. J
Vienna Mozart speakers are they worth the price?
I am looking for reviews of the Vienna Mozart speakers.
They sound GREAT to me. Are they worth the money??
have heard one strong rec
for those from one of the many dealers I've talked with. I believe it was his favorite from the Vienna line, including the more expensive ones(!). Those are what, $3k?
"Are they worth the money??" You'll have to answer that one. But you might already have
The definitive source. . .
Physics does always apply. Expensive flat but big ribbon
speakers have been around for some time. As to smallness itself, it had a big push 30 years ago. Now, I would like to experience Orbs if I got the chance.
So, no technical contribution here. Your posts seem that you are young, intelligent, very inquisitive, & impulsive. Similiar to my youth. Get out there & experience things.
copy that - loud and clear :)
Electrostatic speakers,, very nice mid range and highs,,
but weak on bass, as the link said usually need a sub woofer.
If you can supply a link to the speakers that your looking at that would help. John
The "fret" audio system.
Sound very impressive but I suspect it's nothing more than a electrostatic speaker. But don't sell it short though; it could be a very good system.
HAVE YOU LISTENED TO THE NEWEST...............
MARTIN-LOGAN speakers, yet???
Flat speakers are fantastic, but very expensive.

Ive listened to them a couple of times. They weren't for me. I believe that their advantages are having a much lighter material so that they can me more responsive/faster. Of course the large ribbon means larger soundstage. Also, the salesman strongly interated that they are at their best with stringed instrument recordings, and not as good otherwise. Finally I think a 5.1 setup of those would look pretty hokey in my room, just me.
I Have One Word For You.....
Their 3.6 is arguably the run away best deal in high end audio. The immediacy of the planar panels mated to a pure ribbon tweeter. There are no sweeter highs in all of audiodom.
And they have smaller speakers appropriate for HT applications.
Thanks for the tip
I've noticed that name numerous times. Want to hear them.
I take back most of what I ever said about Martin Logan electrostats. Listened to them again yesterday. They are sooo adept at details, especially at lower db's. The only thing I wished for just a few times was actually a wee bit more coloration from the speakers, which would usually be a bad thing. Otherwise, extremely good speakers. Very easy on the ears as well, fatigue-wise it seemed.
They have made me really reconsider upgrading my 5.1, and just getting a 2.1 music system. But, 2pr's of fronts might look like too much. Would need new amplification at 4ohm down to around 1ohm at high frequencies. Wasn't planning on new amplification. What a balancing act this is going to be.
