I heard the prototypes and was very impressed...

I heard them at the show. To give you some perspective, I'm a big fan of the big Avalons, MBL 101's and Kharma Esquisites. The Evolutions are in a whole other league. They were the purest, most resolving most transparent speakers I ever heard. They basically transcend hifi. They simply disappeared leaving only the music. Best speakers I ever heard by a wide margin. Of course, under show conditions, they were not perfect. Image focus and depth perspective could have been better, but that was because they were set up for a wide listening position. People that got them say that the imaging is AMAZING when set up properly. I have heard lots of super speakers, but nothing like the Evolutions. I'll be getting my MM2's in a few weeks.
I had the pleasure of spending considerable time with the MM3s at RMAF. They sounded excellent, although I think the setup and room held them back in a few areas- bass integration, focus, imaging, and soundstage depth. After living with a pair of MM3s for two months now, I can say those are all non-issues. As a matter of fact, I have never heard a speaker do those things so well in my room (except for bass integration on the 5As). It is a true statement speaker. Get ready Barry.....you ain't heard nothin' yet!
