    Welcome.

    I heard the $100k model at Axpona and didn't like them at all. Again, this was at a show, maybe being in the sweet spot is critical for the brand or positioning needed tweaking.

    Hi Varyat

    i have Coltrane3 speakers and about to get Momento2's. Marten speakers are truly fabulous but you must be careful with amp matching. In my system the resolution is such that we can change the loading on a cartridge by 5ohms and clearly hear the affects......
