Available: Now Shipping

US Retail Price: $1,695/each

Lawrence, Kansas, July 2007 - MartinLogan, the Loudspeaker Technology Company, has released the new Motif hybrid electrostatic loudspeaker designed for use as a center, front or surround channel in any system -from 2 -channel stereo to multi -channel home theater.

Motif is a highly evolved expression of the same ideas and engineering that spawned MartinLogan's flagship Stage™ center -channel speaker. State -of -the -art XStat™ electrostatic transducer technology, dual aluminum -cone woofers, and highly sophisticated Vojtko™ crossover engineering deliver unrivaled precision and intelligibility.

Features Include:
• HD -XStat™ (Hybrid Dynamic XStat) Technology
• XStat™ Electrostatic Transducer featuring:
• Advanced Vacuum Bonding
• MicroPerf Stators
• ClearSpar™ technology
• CLS™ (Curvilinear Line Source)
• Dual High -Resolution 5.25 -inch Aluminum Cone Woofers
• High -Resolution Neodymium Tweeter
• Precision Performance Crossover Engineering
• Toolless Pivoting Stand
• Wall -Mount Brackets and Installation Template
• Low -Voltage Power Supply

What really sets the Motif apart is a high -resolution neodymium soft dome tweeter embedded directly in the electrostatic panel. The Motif all but eliminates high -frequency diffraction. This unique mounting system also increases mid -range/high -frequency phase coherence and time alignment while offering superior dispersion characteristics.

Motif's advanced XStat transducer, MicroPerf stator technology, ClearSpar spacers, and vacuum bonding combine with a highly refined crossover topology to greatly maximize efficiency for an effortless, unlimited dynamic presentation.

Using only the finest polypropylene capacitors and air -core coils, Motif's crossover employs MartinLogan's proprietary Vojtko topology for vanishingly low distortion and seamless driver integration. This precision -tuned network preserves even the most subtle sonic nuances while handling the full dynamics of any source.

Wall -mount brackets and a toolless pivoting stand (with 35 degrees of motion) allow Motif to serve as either a center or surround speaker, mounted on - or off -wall, horizontally or vertically. An optional vertical floor stand is available.

Motif is available at MartinLogan ESL Series dealers including independent retailers and mass -market retailers such as Tweeter.
