I may have been too harsh on comparing the Soundlabs against the Legato's. I think the Soundlabs are a more complete design and certainly go deeper. The Legatos have that midrange magic we all crave from planer type speakers and a soundstage that is almost holographic. They do not do deep bass at all. Maybe falling off around 40 hz. That is probably why they do well in my room. I can let my subs handle the bottom end without much interference from the massive panels.
I know almost nothing about these speakers. Around 12 years ago, I was invited to an amp-fest at an audiophile's house who was using this same speaker. Even though my amps did not sound great on them, the speakers sounded just fantastic with other amps. About 2 months ago, I got word of a pair of these speakers in storage and couldn't resist. As great as they looked, I probably would have bought them even if they sounded awful. If you remember back to the old Beveridge's and Quads, they have that "ease of presentation" that just gets under your skin. The Legatos are a lot like that, but will play insanely loud. An audiophile/ friend of mine said it best " I can tell right away what they don't do perfect, but I quit thinking about it because none of that matters".
I'm enjoying the Planar Circle way too much, so let's keep the pics coming!
