    Unbelievably good value! I heard them last year in Denver. They are the real deal. I don't know how Jonathan is making any money on them.


    Btw, I am not an evolution acoustics fanboy; just an admirer. I used to own a pair of their bigger speakers. You won't find anything close to micros' performance under $18,000.

    i heard them twice and think they're a great buy at the current list price, you wont be making a mistake. i couldn’t wait and bought a different stand mount speaker i think is better and it didnt cost me $18,000 or even half that

    another issue for me was the lack of press with any evolution acoustics speakers, unless i cant find it I've only come across a few online reviews and not very substantive at that. it would be interesting to see it tested with JA's measurements and a comprehensive review by someone 'famous' if you will.

    The great thing about these speakers are they only cost $2500... including stands.

    They sounded great at the California Audio Show 2011, paired with a Dartzeel something or other, really surprising.

    $$$ sent out to buy these guys. They will replace my 103Db Zu Def2 speakers. Never heard them before but with so much praise I feel it is a safe move.

    Hi

    I have no doubt the MMmicro1 is an exceptional speaker but aren't we getting carried away a little bit? maybe a lot??? .. That's a loooooong list of speakers that this one would be superior to, for example:

    Magnepan 1.7, 3.7 and 20.7
    Thiel Cs 3.7, 2.7
    Vandersteen 5A, Quattro
    Wilson Sophia
    Wilson-Benesch Vector
    Martin Logan Summit X
    Revel Salon
    Von Scwheikert VR 33, VR 44, Unifield
    Dynaudio Contour
    Soundlab Elctrostatic
    Sonus Faber Cremona
    Magico S1
    Rockport Mira

    ......
    ....
    ...
    And apologies to the long list of speakers under $20K I have forgotten


    For the record I like Evolution Acoustics speakers and one of their model could stop my current search for speakers but I needed to address these comments
