Bottom Line:   
Very revealing speakers, krisp and detailed sound is what these beauties produce, they will reveal the good from the bad recording and even how good and amplifier is. unique when listening to tabla music and at FX sounds like the ones on bands like Vas and Dead can dance, you’ll just need to ad a subwofer and you are all set. music sounds with a diferent texture when played through electrostatics, so they are diferent then the rest! these are great when combined with a tube amp and for a regular size room to enjoy your personal music. also very good for movies if you prefer.

Bottom Line:   
Possibly the best value around in terms of price vs. performance. Extremely clear and detailled but musical at the same time. Excellent timbre and good integration of the electro static panel with the dynamic driver. I had the opportunity to compare their performance against other high end (and much more expensive) models such as the Joseph Audio flagship model ($15,000), some B & W, Revel, Linn and DeVore. I can honestly say, that the Aeon i are superior to them in tonal accuracy, transient, speed, detail, sounstaging and musicality. The Aeon i only lack in maximum sound pressure level and bass extention when compared to some dynamic driver (conventional driver) designs.

Bottom Line:   
Ever since revelling in the music from a pair of Magnapan MG II speakers I owned many years ago (which I regretfully sold to help finance my college education), I have searched for a speaker that could match their sonic clarity while avoiding their large size and power hungry nature. Over the intervening years, I purchased several different makes and models of dynamic, multi-driver acoustic suspension speakers. Only a few came close to measuring up to the standard set by the Magnapans: huge sound stage, great front-to-back depth, natural-sounding musicality and quick transient response.... During this time, I never seriously considered electro-static speakers because of the problems that seemed inherent in their design: dust build-up on the stator panels, arching at high volume levels and a reputation for somewhat bright, "tizzy" sound (something the Magnapan planar speakers never suffered from). You can imagine my surprise then, when I auditioned a pair of Martin Logan Aeon i hybrid electro-static speakers (based on a fellow audio enthusiast's recommendation) and was immediately impressed by their clear, open and utterly transparent sound. The music seemed to jump out of the Aeons in a way that I had never heard before, surpassing even the Magnapans I remember so fondly. The sound was so dynamic and detailed that it eclipsed everything I had heard before, including some five-figure high-end models connected to much more expensive hi-fi gear. After purchasing a matched pair of Aeon i speakers (at a special reduced price) from the local dealer, I have spent many hours listening to them in my system. Even though I have not owned the Martin Logans very long (they aren't even "broken in" yet), their superior qualities are so readily audible that I feel justified in writing this review without delay. I will not waste more words trying to describe the sound produced by these speakers: they have to be experienced to be fully appreciated. Just set aside any preconceptions you have about electro-static speakers prior to listening, cue up the music, close your eyes and enjoy perhaps the most transparent, articulate and coherent sound you have ever heard from a speaker.
