Default Most impressive full range you've ever heard?

I still have dreams of the original Martin Logan CLS (not the succesive iteraterions). They still are the bench mark for transparency and beauty of speaker design. Sure it had it's flaws, but it's one of those speakers that you never forget - like your favorite super model.

Anyone have there favorite electrostat, DIY or otherwise? I've been eyeing the new Audiostatic DCM5 - another full range beauty on par with the CLS in aesthetics. Don't know how it sounds though.

fcel, I owned the Apogee Stages also but they are not electrostats. But Apogees do come close to stats in transparency and have better bass.

Default Audiostatic 900

Most impressive Ive heard were the Audiostatic 900.

They are IIRC a total of 6 panels (3 on each side) of which 4 were the Audiostatic 300 and 2 of which I do not know the designation but they were for the low frequencies only.

Incredible life like sound with pinpoint imaging.
It felt like you would be able to stand up and walk in between the musicians.

Cheers,
Johan

I havent listened to the DCM, but have liked all Audiostatics I have listened to.

Correct me if Im wrong but the DCM is probably in essence not that much different from the later ES series.
