Thanks 2A3 for clearing my doubts. Diet control isn’t that effective afterall.

limage,  
 
Two different women. I don't know who the "health guru" is, & am not interested to know. The first lady is called Nigela Lawson, both me & my wife think that she lives up to her name, Lawson, real huge. She demonstrates how to cook after work in a rush to feed her family. Just think of her as another Martin Yan.  
 
Only two other reasons I can think of besides diet to create the difference, made up & sex.

回覆 (593): Diet
 
 
 
 
 
This woman is 51.  
She is a TV “health guru” advocating a holistic approach to nutrition and ill health, promoting exercise, a pescetarian diet high in organic fruits and vegetables. She recommends detox diets colonic irrigation and supplements, also making statements that yeast is harmful, that the colour of food is nutritionally significant, and about the utility of lingual and faecal examination.

This woman is 50. She is a TV cook, who eats nothing but meat, butter and deserts.

If you are interested, there is a pair of Statement E2 on Audiogon right now ;-)  
________________________________________________________________________  
 
thekong, I see you're having a busy morning at the office again:-) Yes, the Statement has shipload of cone drivers and separate bass towers (think the 16 12" woofers are housed in cast machined enclosures), but at the ridiculous volume we had it on (loud even for me!), the 2 ESL panels (mounted in the heavy cast base) held their composure way beyond my expectation. At one point (right when the plane hits the ground), I thought for sure one of the panels was going to fly out towards feikeung. The point is Martin Logan makes quality products, though not cheap, still value for money considering what the other super speakers out there are offering. If humidity is no longer a threat, what great fun!

True, but don’t forget the Statement actually has 8 7” cone drivers and 8 12” cone drivers per channel, for the bass.

One thing for certain, the new generation of Martin Logan offers plenty of dynamics and can play at a tremendous volume with ease. The sound of the " air plane crash" movie we saw at 十八子 with the Statement still rings in my head.

The list price starts at US$22,995..........only 56–23,000 Hz ±3dB, so a sub-woofer is probably mandatory!  
_______________________________________________________________________________________________  
 
Agreed, this is precisely why the Magnepan 3.6 is so damn unbeatable! However, from the hip up, Martin Logan is pure toxin! The type of poison that Maggie just simply can not match. Having heard their lower models (Summit, Spire) in various occasions and in countless hi-fi shows, on violin and vocal, the sound of Martin Logan is in a class of it's own. Truth is, the thought of intimately involved with a pair CLX excites me more than any other loudspeaker in the current market. Hopefully, when my damn studio is done, I'll have enough courage ( and $$$ ) to bring her in for some adult fun, the Martin Logan's way:-|

The list price starts at US$22,995, and you can have custom made ones with exotic wood finish at extra cost.  
 
Unfortunately, even the factory spec. says only 56–23,000 Hz ±3dB, so a sub-woofer is probably mandatory!

Two things about the Martin Logen I find most enchanting: quality construction and translucent diaphragm. To be stark naked is good enough, but slightly less than transparent is deadly.  
 
Dark Cherry is likely to blend in well with my future room. Any idea how much this thing is selling?

icy, the "hybrid design" used in the Genesis 350 is something still not very convincing for me, not yet anyway. The auditions we had with the Apogee in Malay (think it was the Grand) and some of the older Martin Logans of similar design left more questions than answers. Having said that, I am interested, very much so, to arrange an audition with the Martin Logan's CLX. An absolute feast for the eyes!

Hon,  
 
Thank you for the banquet. Dr. Feikeung is now actively persuading chairman of the 1PR board to hold the next anniversary dinner there.  
 
You now have 10 months to restore your hifi system, after when I can provide shelter for your gears for 4 years, to be reinstated after your baby starts schooling. Rent free.
