Please chime in other Martin Logan owners with your experience pertaining to panel life. My speakers are a little over two years old, I had to replaced one of the panels two months ago because it had low output, and I think the other panel has the same issue now. I have to give major credit to Martin Logan customer service as they helped me troubleshoot and replace the last stat panel, are helping me with this current one, and everything is covered under warranty.
After I get this one fixed, if there is in fact a problem, is this just a game I'll be playing until the warranty runs out? Has anyone else had this problem? I know that some audiophiles have had a pair of Martin Logans for 10 or 20 years, and I would assume that they aren't replacing the panels every two years. I know that environmental issues can shorten the life of stat panels, but the weather here in Seattle isn't humid, or dusty, or too hot, etc. I vacuum them about every month after unplugging them for a night, and don't over drive them. They are connected to my power center, so I know a surge can't get to them, nor could they be effected by low or high line voltage.
Has anyone else had this experience? I am addicted to the sound of planar speakers now, so maybe Magnepan is a low maintenance option for a similar sound?
Thanks for the help and thoughts...
