MartinLogan Introduces Dominant Motion XT Speakers

Larger cabinets, bigger drivers, increased power handling capabilities, and higher efficiency push Motion Series to the extreme

July 15, 2014 - Lawrence, Kansas - MartinLogan, the world's leader in electrostatic & Folded Motion™ loudspeaker technology, proudly announces the addition of three new powerful speaker models in their award-winning Motion® Series; Motion 60XT floorstanding, Motion 50XT center channel, and Motion 35XT bookshelf speaker.

XT stands for extreme, and for good reason. The new Motion XT speakers play louder, lower, and with unflinching accuracy. Larger woofers and cabinets, paired with our most accurate Folded Motion™ XT driver, deliver an engaging and encompassing experience that cuts straight to the emotion locked inside your favorite recordings.

Motion XT speakers feature a ferocious combination of high-performance components; high-excursion, black aluminum cone woofers with low-turbulence, rear-firing, bass ports provide extended, powerful bass; larger more accurate Folded Motion XT tweeters boasts a radiating surface 40% larger than other Motion Series speakers for ultra-low distortion; and a dedicated mid-woofer on the Motion 60XT promotes an even more open, revealing and authentic sound in the critical midrange. The result is acoustic alchemy across the frequency spectrum, creating an unbelievably realistic musical experience.

Complementing their sonic accuracy is an elegant yet understated styling. Luscious high-gloss finishes, subtle angled-top cabinets with soft radius corners and signature MartinLogan perforated grilles accentuates their powerful elegance.

MartinLogan's dedicated in-house engineering team carefully crafted the Motion Series to provide speakers with stunning dynamic range and jaw-dropping clarity, along with thoughtful simplicity. Additional refinements include custom 5-way bi-wire tool-less binding posts that allow ultimate connection flexibility, and reinforced solid internal bracing that eliminates internal resonances and standing waves.

The complete Motion Series comprises of four floorstanding speakers (Motion 20, 40 & 60XT), two bookshelf speakers (Motion 15 & 35XT) and two center channels (Motion 30 and 50XT). Each speaker is voice-matched, ensuring mix-and-match versatility to create the ideal system for any size room.

Motion 60XT, 50XT & 35XT pricing starts at $2,999.95 per pair (US), $899.95 each (US), and $1,199.95 per pair(US), respectively, in High-Gloss Piano Black finish. High-Gloss Black Cherrywood finish is also available, and all models will ship at the end of July 2014.
