When Kevin Malmgren, the former VP of engineering at Von Schweikert and his business partner set out to design these speakers they approached it with a balanced, "No holds barred", yet at the same time producing a low margin (for the dealer) priced product, giving the end user maximum performance for his dollar. After 7 years of development, you can only image what kind of performance their $50,000 speaker gets you! Built to produce concert level sound and dynamics, while doing so with finesse and detail at every frequency audible to humans, the MM2's are stunning. Time after time found the MM's winning "Best of show" and grabbing the attention of reviewers and audiophiles alike.
The MM2's are more than just beautiful cabinetry and design. Each component works to produce an extremely flat frequency response while being tightly time coincident. The constant voltage crossover network assists in widening the off axis performance giving the listener a large sweet-spot with near perfect accuracy. There is a ton of experience and real world knowledge in their design. (You can read more about the unique design principles of the MM's in a nice ultrahiend review.)
While they are showstoppers and grab your attention, the real question is, 'How to they sound'? Because they can reach deep in the single Hz frequencies, they easily and cleanly reproduce frequencies at or above 20Hz (the lowest human hearing range). This gives them the ability to maintain very high detail and resolution into the lowest bass notes. Coupled with state-of-the-art drivers and an advanced cross-over network the mids are life-like and smooth with an ultra-wide dispersion tweeter carrying the music into convincing and emotional territory.
