    I have had my eyes on them even before I picked up the MBL 111F’s. If I could get a reasonable price for my X2 series 2 I would think hard about them.

    Re: MBL 101e MK2

    I stopped by at the Singapore distributor yesterday for a listen. Every bit as amazing as when I went tbeir 9 years ago.
    Driven by 4 mbl monoblocks, these could go as LOUD as you wanted them to - without breaking into discomfort or distortion.
    They played jazz and classical and The Eagles live well but spinning Pink Floyd the wall at loud volumes was incredible. He then brought out the latest Metallica album, I have hearr it before and wasn't that taken. This was almost taken to the event and the sound was fast, dynamic and incredible- all on cd.

    MBL is a speaker you feel as well as listen to. The omni drivers really are unique and this is gives them the best mids and treble I have ever heard.

    This MBL system was more musically convincing than the top of line Avant-garde Trios with bass gorns at 350k and all top of line Audio Note amps and Audax digital.

    If I ever win the lottery, the top of range MBL would be at the very top of my list.

    Ron and Cheng are great peeple at Coherence.

    Hearing the MBL xTremes at Coherence was my audio epiphany. In over 10 years I still have not heard anything come close.

    Might have to take another trip back there.

    Agree. I heard the ones 9 years agom Ron is a lovely fellow and kept putting on disc after disc,then a bit later when Floyd and such was on. He gave me rhe remote and said play it as loud as you like

    They have a lot of experience in setting up MBL systems.

    Love my MBL’s. Go to Munich, hear everything and realize MBL is still the king. Far superior than some of the over priced stuff we hear there.

    I've only heard MBLs at audio shows and they've consistently been my choice for the best sound reproduction I've ever heard.
