Gene, perhaps another topic of discussion with the ML engineers would be the dispersion characteristics of the tweeter. I found this review of the Motion 60XTi of the previous series, in which the dispersion characteristics of the XT tweeter are described. From the review:
"Another advantage: the pattern of their sonic delivery is also more controlled than domes, which have a wide dispersion – almost hemispherical, indeed. Folded Motion tweeters disperse around 80° both vertically and horizontally, while the XT version reduces that to 30° vertical and 80° horizontally, much reducing bounces from ceiling and walls on the way to the listener, so aiding clarity."
Exceptionally well-designed tweeters make all the difference
My question, or concern, when using them in an "all-around" system for both music and movies, is whether the limited dispersion of the tweeters would be an issue for people who don't sit around much in the "sweet spot", listening to music. I can see how this would be great for a two-channel aficionado, but could that be a negative for home theater? Or, would 30 degrees vertical and 80 degrees horizontal be plenty for home theater as well?
