MartinLogan Illusion ESL C34A Center-Channel Speaker Review

October 8, 2017 § Leave a comment

“Over the past few years, I’ve used both MartinLogan’s Stage and B&W’s top-of-the-line HTM1 D2 for center-channel duty, as well as other models. As I said above, the ESL C34A is noticeably better than the Stage, with better definition and tauter bass. The HTM1 is the only other center channel I’ve had in my system that compares in terms of vocal clarity and dynamic capabilities. When I first installed the ESL C34A, I was concerned that its position on the floor would cause the center image to be lower and perhaps cause issues when sounds panned across the front, but this did not occur when watching movies. Every once in a while, I thought, “Gee, was that bit lower in the center?” But I think that was mostly because I was looking at a speaker sitting on the floor.”
