Bookshelf to replace Martin Logan Source
Thank you all for your recommendations! Investigated all and have the following comments:bdp24, thank you for recommending Eminent LFT-16A. The look really appeals to my (science experiment) design sensibilities (looks like something I would build... 
Diffusion vs. Sound Absorption views
How do you know when panels are needed? I'm interested in the topic, but don't notice a problem with Golden Ear Triton 3+ about a foot from front wall and 6" from side walls. If it already sounds good don't mess with it? Tinker for better sound? O...

Are any of you still active? Let me know, I'm in the area. 
How come Horn + woofer designs are not more popular?
Horns - They're not more popular because they sound terrible, the reason is that simple.  
What are important features in a listening chair
Eames Lounge and Ottoman is my choice.We have a pair of clones (widely available on Amazon in many grades of leather) in the music listening room (also good for reading and sharing coffee in the morning). We have three total, and they are great fo... 
I have three speakers avaiable to me??
I too am surprised Def Tech is being recommended. Since we don’t know much about the use or room for this selection, only mentioned musical preferences - not a lot to go on. DefTEch 9060 and Triton 3+ and 5 are designed to be home theater and musi...

Using B&W FPM-5's (with a sub) sitting on an entertainment center (with B&W short stands) in our 600sq.ft. music listening/bedroom, running on repurposed Denon AVR-X3000. And I've been searching for better sound. Purchased Elac Debut2 6.2,... 
Whats playing on your system today?
So many great tracks! If you want to hear something different and amazing try African Woman - Live by Third WorldYou can find it on Tidal - make sure it’s the LIVE version, studio version isn’t nearly as good. Find this version from the album "Reg...

Looking for a feature-rich 2-channel integrated that can drive 2-ohm loads
I had ruled-out Yamaha, because their A-S line (rated to 2-ohms) has no featureset - they are very basic old-school and lacking connectivity in all modern regards.However, Yamaha does offer some feature-rich 2-channel receivers (that won't drive 2... 
Electrostatic pros and cons.
I have no names to drop or unique experiences from history, but do have a pair of Martin Logan Source (entry level) speakers running on a Denon AVR, and they are "magical" in the sweet spot (in my room and to my ears). No measurements required, th... 
Denon AVR vs. Martin Logan Electrostats
I solved this problem by replacing the ML Source speakers with Golden Ear Triton 3+. And while the Tritons don't have the 'magic' planar sound, they do a very good job for home theater purposes, and are not demanding of the amp.Sources have moved ... 
Budget phono stage under $100, cheap but refined, does it exist?
Thank you all for your input. I see the OP has a solution. I and probably others appreciate his question and the responses it attracted. Great community of folks here!Been following this thread because I recently upgraded HT system with a new AVR,... 
Have you ever wondered why speaker manufactures do not consign speakers to dealers?
Retailers make the money, not manufacturers - especially big box stores. I work for a manufacturing company. We once petitioned Home Depot for a $1 price increase due to proven legitimate raw goods increases (steel, corrugated, EPS). Home Depot ra... 
Denon AVR vs. Martin Logan Electrostats
Is there a 2-channel version of the Rotel RMB-1585, or another equal performing recommendation for 2 channel? None of the other speakers in the system are as demanding and could run on AVR power. Unless the Source's are replaced with another set o...
