    Hi Mike,

    The answer is NO. I am just an audiophile and a music lover. BTW, this is an EMM DA2 thread!

    Hi all, you might be interested in the following report by Jonathan Valin (Munich High End 2019: Loudspeakers - The absolute sound)

    MartinLogan showed its $80k, three-way, electrostatic-hybrid Neolith (large curvilinear electrostatic panel, 12" front-firing carbon-fiber mid/woofer crossed over at 400Hz, and rear-firing, ported 15" subwoofer), driven by Pass Labs electronics, sourced by an EMMLabs DA2 and a VPI HW-40 turntable, and wired with and conditioned by MIT. Combining a supremely lively and lifelike boxless ístat sound in the midrange and treble with the best blend of a dynamic woofer/subwoofer of any ML hybrid Iíve heard, the Neolith was superb on a digital cut of Fischer-Dieskau singing Schubert liederóand on everything else played. So fast and clean and open, these speakers just donít sound like dynamics; it is as if they arenít dragging that cone-and-box chain behind them. Of course, they didnít have all the midbass weight and power of cones either, but with the most finely detailed and realistic midrange I heard in Munich, they simply stood ahead of the competition.

    His comments on this room surprised me. I heard it three times and was never overly impressed. Best I ever heard the ML Neoliths was with the big ARC REF750SEís. That was magic. Otherwise, I like the ESL 9/11/13/15a range with Constellation.

    Re: Emm da2 dac

    Last weekend I listened to a EMM labs reference system. It is one of the best I've ever heard.
    Those amps have a iron grip on these speakers without losing the musicality.

    Joe Cox, editor-in-chief @ what hifi? (High End Munich 2019 Show Report) states: "What better place to start than a massive pair of electrostatic speakers? "Truth in sound" is what Martin Logan promises from its flagship, made -to-order Neolith speakers and they were certainly sounding staggeringly revealing being fed by electronics from Pass Labs."

    Ed Selley of hi-fi + (avforums Munich High End 2019 show report) writes: "This wasnít the most expensive system at the show and neither was it the largest, most complex or even the largest red speaker on show but it generated the sound I liked the most. The Martin Logan Neolith is the flagship design of the hybrid electrostatic speaker from the company and it was doing a fine turn on the end of a system from fellow US high end denizens, Pass Labs. It had truly incredible reserves of scale and combined this with speed, tonal realism and sheer musicality that isnít always present with systems at the MOC."
