Anthem Room Correction and Martin Logan Renaissance ESL 15A
"As this exercise shows, the measurements and auto-corrections that are done by ARC can make a profound impact on the quality of the bass. What’s more: even when the speakers have already been positioned ideally, the ARC results are still far from subtle."
"The Renaissance ESL 15A’s are simply the absolute best MartinLogans that I have heard. They have seismic yet superbly articulate and very even-handed bass, coherence to rival the best multi-driver dynamic speakers and incredibly transparent and super-refined, yet smooth and gloriously rich midrange with precise, fluid and airy treble. These speakers combine so many audiophile tricks and weave them together so very well that it becomes a hardship to return to other speakers."
"Yes, I've drunk the Kool-Aid for years. But even though I'm pre-primed to like electrostatic-panel speakers, I'd never found a one-stop solution I could live with. Now that a MartinLogan active subwoofer endowed with ARC-2 has been successfully mated to an XStat panel, anyone serious about big, full, accurate sound reproduction can start here. Unconditionally recommended."
ARC Genesis requires an ARC or PBK Microphone, a Mac OS X (10.12+) or Windows (7/8/8.1/10) computer, and an ARC or PBK compatible audio product.
One USB port is required. If you are using a laptop computer, check power settings and battery meter before starting to ensure the procedure is not interrupted.
Fantastic! (Upon Further Review) Upon first purchasing these "bad boys", I gave the Renaissance a four star, alluding to my sound system "getting better".
Well, after a short break in period, fully utilizing the ARC, and a new amplifier, I think I have hit my upper end as far as what my ears will allow me to ascertain. They are fantastic in all realms, including "value". Who would have thought that spending $25,000 would be a "good buy"?
And the customer support and willingness/desire to talk to you about your whole system, as well as ML products is/has been great. One ML representative said that "friends and family don't get it (spending dollars on high end equipment)" and they are right (except for one astute nephew of mine), but we certainly do and appreciate the whole ML speaker family!
This is a great company to do business with...it's a pleasure.
Nice So far, so good with these new toys. Compared to my Ethos, the Renaissance is just a bigger and more powerful sound. And as they break in, it only gets better. My McIntosh is a perfect match. And I haven't even got the bass kit hooked up yet...this will be great.
