" MartinLogan ElectroMotion ESL Mike, Creative Department Director (and musician) Definitive Technology ProMonitor 800 These small Definitive speakers sounded great out of the box. But they really got better after the drivers broke in. These speakers are a great match for my low-powered amp. Whenever someone is home, we have music playing, so they get lots of use. They have pretty good bass response for the size, but I'll probably add a sub. Definitive Technology ProMonitor 800 satellite speakers #735PMON8B $145 each Rusty, Advisor Klipsch Reference RB-61 II I used to have tower speakers, but they were too big for my living room. I downsized to these Klipsch bookshelves. They're really efficient, so I can play them loud enough to wake my neighbors - without a super-powerful amp. I use them for TV and music. They sound full and clear at all volume levels.

So I was so excited to upgrade to such a seriously great pair of speakers. My room is pretty small, but these MartinLogan electrostatic speakers have transformed it, as well as all my old favorites. A high-res recording recently spooked me with its incredible detail and massive soundstage. And I couldn't believe the amount of controlled bass I heard from a jazz trio.
