Ultimate-Performance Electrostatic Center Speaker

The world's most advanced center-channel speaker, Stage™ is an ideal home theater companion to our other XStat™-based loudspeakers.

Designed primarily to serve as the center in a home theater incorporating other XStat™-based MartinLogan electrostatic speakers, Stage™ is versatile enough to handle left-, right-, and surround-channel duties as well. Its dual 6.5-inch aluminum-cone woofers and advanced Vojtko™ crossover seamlessly integrate a solid bass foundation with the astonishingly transparent, detailed midrange and treble produced by its XStat panel. A single-pivot bracket/stand facilitates set-top, shelf, on-wall, or on-floor placement.

HT heart
I don't write reviews but just want to share my experience. I have had the stage now for 3 months and have reached a point in my journey that I can just pull off to the side of the road and takes the keys out. I have owned many center channels from ML ,encore,matinee,logos and other brands. I think the thing thats sets this center ch appart from everything out there is the clean clear dynamic bass. I cant get over how awesome it makes my movies on bluray .Home theater is my passion and the center channel is the heart so the whole experience is determined by it and should not be overlooked. I watched a samurai movie last night and there was a fight involving wooded practice swords ....OMG I honestly felt the presence of them swords being swung around in my room, the way the 2 swords clashed and that the density and weight of each strike was majestically mastered .You could hear the swords cut through the empty air and I got really pumped because the center channel was physically affecting me by bringing me right into the situation.. its priceless
