Well these two speakers will surly provide quite a contrast in presentation. Will be interested in what you discover.

Yes, two entirely different approaches to high fidelity playback.
An eventual update would be interesting. You might end up loving both, but there's bound to be a preference.
Will the Dual Concentric Tannoys work in a stacked mode? Will the brand new shiny Martin Logans gradually lose their initial sheen?
Is it all going to be a eventual question of tone versus detail?
One thing is immediately clear, the Martin Logans are an impressively elegant design.
No getting away from that.
Wow ... so many people not even listening to your actual question!
I've owned BOTH Martin-Logans & Tannoys for over 20 years. They are VERY different experiences, and I love them both.
My M-L SL3's give me transparency, clear midrange detail, and a large vertical scale that cone speakers just cannot do. My Tannoy System 15 studio monitors give me palpable dynamics and dynamic scale that electrostatics simply cannot do. The Tannoys are a bit colored, and have some midbass girth that is missing on the SL3's, around the crossover region from panel to woofer. But this also makes music more FUN to listen to. If I had to choose between only these two for the rest of my life, it would be the Tannoys, for their versatility with all types of music. The M-L's make me favor more Jazz and and audiophile quality recordings. 70's rock music doesn't do so well on the Logans.
In my living room, I switch between them every few months, and really enjoy both. Neither gives me fatigue, so i don't know what those others are talking about. Could it be their electronics??
You have a tough decision! Both are interesting & bold choices!
