My god, the re700s and the martin logans are identical brothers in tonality, soundstaging, imaging, and bass quality (except the re700s don't have the pull effect and sound a bit bolder). 

 

Damn, I'm a happy man to have both the re700s and logans, never will I sell these two beauties (in their own right).

 

I may even go as far as to say that they are fraternal twins! Jeeze, these guys work together so well.

 

IF the martins do not show up in stores again (I truly hope not), then the re700s are a viable option for late martin logan fans.

So my E07K that I ordered was on back order. I decided to just cancel it and am wondering if going up from a E07K to an E17 is worth the money. Thoughts?

Awesome, thanks! The V's, TE05 and H3's are on my current lust-list. Well, I would probably just snag the H3's if budget were not a consideration. Then again, you have high regard for the V's, and they are sounding like great bang for buck (and a nice complimentary sig to the M200's). I suspect that the TE05's may very well fit into that category also...

^ Never heard the E07Ks but the E17s is pretty good. Powerful and slick looking but it is a bit warm for my liking and is not the best in transparency. I imagine that E07K is pretty similar, just probably not as powerful??? i really dunno and maybe it would be best to ask in their respective threads???

 

Here are some of ClieOS' amp comparo threads that might help???

Ds seems to like the V's and if the Fostex comes anywhere close, then you'll have to pull the trigger on one or the other.  I'm sure Ds will share some more incite on the V's later in the week and sf will have his say also later on.  H3's are a no brainer for you Wayne since we have similar tastes.  Hopefully the price will drop some or a pair will show up on the fs thread.

I expect it and the V any day now.

Anyone that's willing to try to improve the Piston sound should give it a try.

How did you open them up to get in the nozzle?

Mine should arrived on Thursday. Had to pay $60 for them over here so I was really hoping that they would best the Piston's.

I too want to remove the grey foam from the Piston 2's. does the wire mesh re-attach after? Or are you left with an open nozzle?

Just ordered the 650.

The Heaven V are indeed a very nice listen, smooth, have good lows for single transducer, very involving, I found them around $200 but looked a really long time...(not the Aging)

Cool! Look forward to the impressions. How much did they end up costing?

post #21660 of 32903

The phones themselves €45, plus €6 shipping. I guess Tenso will be another €15 or so, and if I'm unlucky some customs tax when they get here - though I'm using Rakuten rather than Amazon, which gives me a better chance of avoiding that. So let's call it around €65, or $89.
