Martin Logan Accent vrs SL3s


Is there a big diffrence between the two speakers. A dealer will say yes for the sale. Are they better?

Hi, Lev. One of the two, the SL3 I beleive, is more difficult to drive. I happened to audition the two comparatively at a dealer's -- pls note, not at home. I listened to orchestral music ("Thus Spake Zarathustra", audiophile recording, what else/ Vivaldi, String Concerti / P Floyd "The Wall" on LP), cabling was Nordost 4fil / spm ref, amplification: Symphonic Line Kraftquelle pre / Kraft 250 classA power.
With this set-up (again, at the dealer's) the SL3 sounded closer to what I think is natural sound -- so, better (esp. for classical). As to a *big* difference, a jaw-dropping, etc, difference... I missed it, with all due respect to yr dealer.
But then, you have ML electronics (right?). Maybe those will better reveal the difference??
Cheers!
Well.. "The Wall" is not exactly what I would label "orchestral".
Sorry.
