Lawrence, Kansas, July 2007 - MartinLogan, the world leader in electrostatic loudspeaker technology, will soon release a new model that will allow new generations of budding audiophiles access to high -end electrostatic sound without a high -end price tag.

"Source represents the embodiment of every bit of MartinLogan lineage precisely contained in a performance package nearly everyone will find reasons to take home and proudly enjoy," said David Allen, Vice -President of Product Development, MartinLogan.

Source is the world's most affordable high -performance hybrid electrostatic loudspeaker. Incorporating ultra -high -resolution AirFrame™ technology (originally developed for MartinLogan's Summit loudspeaker) Source is capable of an exceptionally dynamic and realistic performance. An 8 -inch woofer, MiniETC™ (Energy Transfer Coupler) spikes, and high -end crossover engineering further reinforce Source's high -end pedigree. The result? A stellar performer at an exceptional price.

Features Include:
• Generation 2 Electrostatic Transducer featuring:
• CLS™ (Curvilinear Line Source) Wave Launch
• Ultra Rigid AirFrame™
• MicroPerf Stators
• High -Resolution 8 -inch Aluminum Cone Woofer
• Precision Performance Crossover Engineering
• Adjustable Base Design for Listening in both Standing and Sitting Positions

MartinLogan's advanced AirFrame™ technology and MicroPerf Generation 2 diaphragm electrostatic transducer cover the audible acoustic range with unprecedented high -frequency accuracy and low -level sonic detail. A perfectly integrated, MartinLogan engineered high -resolution 8 -inch woofer supplies an authoritative bass performance with extreme precision.

State -of -the -art audio transformer and crossover engineering ensure a transparent link from amplifier to electrostatic panel and woofer. Source's crossover employs a proprietary Vojtko™ topology for vanishingly low distortion and seamless driver integration. This precision -tuned network preserves miniscule sonic nuances while handling the full dynamics of any source with unparalleled purity, precision, clarity, and openness.

Easily adaptable for listening in a sitting or standing position, Source incorporates an innovative rotating and removable base allowing user adjustment from 1° to 13° degrees of rake (tilit) to control vertical wave launch. Additionally, MiniETC spikes allow for further fine -tuning of rake.
