MartinLogan Ships First High-Performance Bookshelf Speaker, the Motion LX16

The Motion LX16 extends the award-winning Motion Series sound to a more traditional bookshelf package, featuring MartinLogan's advanced resolution Folded Motion tweeter and luxurious real wood finishes.

Lawrence, KS - October 26, 2011 - MartinLogan, the world's leader in electrostatic loudspeaker technology, announces shipping of the new Motion® LX16 high-performance bookshelf speaker. The compact speaker incorporates traditional quality wood craftsmanship and minimalistic elegance complemented by extended performance improvements.


The Motion LX16 bookshelf speaker features MartinLogan's advanced resolution Folded Motion™ tweeter, a low-distortion 5.25-inch high-excursion woofer, and low-turbulence rear-firing bass port for extended bass performance. Each speaker is wrapped in a thick wood cabinet and styled with a hand-rubbed, high-gloss piano black or black cherrywood finish. The new high-gloss black cherrywood finish has deep cherry undertones and appears almost black in low light, giving them a unique and understated elegance that blends into any environment.

MartinLogan's signature perforated steel grille appears to float in front of the solidly constructed 3/4-inch thick MDF cabinets. Hidden discretely beneath the grille, the drivers are secured by a solid, black-anodized brushed aluminum baffle that sits flush with the cabinet. Folded Motion tweeters and woofers are seamlessly blended with an advanced topology crossover network featuring polypropylene and low-DF electrolytic capacitors, custom wound inductors, and thermal and current protection. The Motion LX Series also features custom five-way binding posts for connection versatility.

MartinLogan will be giving away a pair of the Motion LX16 bookshelf speakers at each stop on its ongoing Truth in Sound Tour. Upcoming listening events are scheduled for: FL, AZ, MA, OH, NJ, OH, MI, DE, WA, and CA. Please visit the website for more details.

Motion LX16 is available now, priced at $799.95 per pair (US).
