The very top half octave (15-20kHz) is slightly rolled off, particularly when listening per M-L's setup instructions. Most listeners won't correlate the roll-off with the M-L's sounding polite. There are other reasons why some describe M-Ls and other electrostatics as polite sounding, but I've never heard them described as muffled. That said, the ribbbon tweeter used in the Magnepans has far greater extension than anything used by M-L.
