I have heard their 'magic', I just don't know how to explain it well. I also decided a long time ago that I would pass on owning them because of their size and the room location needs.\n\nI'm smitten by the magic of electrostatics. For strings, horns, and most percussion they are addicting. But they sound different than any box\/cone-driver I've ever heard. What I can't figure out is if the electrostatics have a coloration or the box\/cone speakers do. On recordings I make myself in my own rooms, I can make cymbals sound completely realistic on the Salon2s. Eerily so. Play those same recordings on a Martin Logan or a Sound Labs and they sound different, and oddly more attractive. So I wonder if the electrostatics aren't euphonically colored.
