MartinLogan introduced their all new ElectroMotion Loudspeaker Series at CEDIA featuring their thin film transducer technologies—electrostatic and compact Folded Motion. This new series is said to establish a new benchmark for price verses performance. We had a chance to demo this speaker system first hand powered by McIntosh amplifiers. We listened to various music clips which revealed the Martin Logans did a great job of delivering every nuance in the recording even with the rather high noise floor from the trade show. Priced at $1,995 per pair (US), the ElectroMotion ESL is scheduled to ship in March 2011

Are you going to be able to get your hands on them for a full review? I would love to see your measurements on these and some Magnepans and some other speakers with flat panel drivers (whether they be ribbons, "quasi-ribbons", planar, electrostatic, or whatever).
A fool and his money are soon parted.
Too many people seem to spend too much time reading between the lines for what is not there instead of paying attention to what is there.
