DiaLogue Seven matching speakers

Hello there, I am interested in purchasing this combo: CJ ET2 + DiaLogue Seven but not sure what speakers to pair with it:

I favor coherence, clarity and warmth over loudness or bass slam. Was considering the Martin Logan Summit X but would like to hear your suggestions. (I read they were a perfect match with the Mystère gear)Many thanks, David

I can attest that the PrimaLuna DiaLogue Seven amps are quite compatible with a wide range of loudspeakers.
They do remarkably well with both dynamic driver and electrostatic speakers, like the Quad ESL-2905, ESL-2805, and ESL-57s (with the tweeter protection circuit). Unfortunately, I have not heard them with the ML Summit X, but I did hear the Mystere amps with the Summit Xs and it was a great match. I would think the DiaLogues would do at least as well, but since I haven't tried them, I can't guarantee it.
At any rate, I highly recommend you have a dealer help you. You might want to call Kevin at Upscale Audio and get his opinion. He often shows the DiaLogues with Sonus Faber speakers (the Cremonas?).
Good luck!
