Still, the ML is not too far behind base on current price. I used the NAD cables for both phones. The NAD cable has great synergy with the 90... So does the On1 cable. Glad I have this little phone that could.


^ That is until you "properly" amp/ feed them with some real GUD schitt that is. hoho :veryevil:

 

These Logans probably scale A LOT better than those HP50s............................................................ just a guess. :ph34r:

I've amped them. Relax bro... The MLs are good....lol. But the HP50 does it for me. No regret on the purchase though.

Maxx,

You and Lors will have to appear before the Mikros 90 "Gentlemen's Review Board".

I think you two have exceeded the allowable BASS THRESHOLD for a member in good standing.

Leave all the bits and pieces you scrounged up off the ground for modding with sfwalcer at the door.

 

(A Mikros 90 sect is developing!  If this goes into a schism--and thread-splitting occurs, you two are up before the Martin Logan Tribunal.) 

 

[JK.  As soon as I finish changing the oil in the cars and find that set of jeweler's screw drivers, I am going slumming with the bassheads.]

The Mikros 90 will continue to improve.  Give them about 300 hours.  Then pair them with a good source and amp.  You will then realize that you had been living in denial, and were foolish to even consider that ANYTHING ELSE was even close to the Mikros 90.

 

[If not, then the boys are gonna be there with "the injection" until you hear things OUR WAY!!!!!  The Black Maria and the Mikros 90 Dream Team arrive in the wee-wee hours of morning.]
