MartinLogan Introduces Motion Vision X Soundbar with DTS Play-Fi

MartinLogan Motion Vision X delivers 5-channel surround sound from a sleek all-in-one system with high-resolution audio streaming via DTS Play-Fi technology

New York, NY - The London NYC Hotel - October 6, 2015 - MartinLogan, the world's leader in electrostatic and Folded Motion loudspeaker technology, proudly announces the newest addition to MartinLogan's award winning Motion Series, the Motion Vision X soundbar with improved 5-channel surround sound channel simulation and high-resolution wireless audio streaming via DTS Play-Fi technology.


Like the original award-winning Motion Vision soundbar introduced in 2012, the next generation Motion Vision X is the ultimate single-speaker surround sound system with three advanced-resolution Folded Motion tweeters, four 4-inch high-performance woofers, and seven dedicated amplifiers deliver 100 watts of total system power delivering exceptionally deep yet well-balanced bass and immersive home theater surround sound in a simple and easy to operate system. Advanced digital signal processing (DSP) technology and industry leading surround sound decoding allowed MartinLogan to replace five separate home theater speakers with a one piece solution that reproduces multi-channel recordings with unflinching accuracy, resolution and detail—the inspiration behind every MartinLogan design.

The Motion Vision X raises the bar again! Utilizing DTS Play-Fi technology, the Vision X provides listeners the freedom and flexibility to stream their high-resolution music wirelessly (up to 24-bit/192kHz) over an existing Wi-Fi network to any number of connected speakers that utilize DTS Play-Fi technology once paired with the Play-Fi App. Unlike many wireless platforms, DTS Play-Fi is an open platform, meaning listeners are able to mix and match any DTS Play-Fi-enabled audio products from a selection of top audio brands. Listeners can take advantage of endless choices, from their own music libraries to online music streaming services like Tidal, Spotify, Rdio, Songza, Pandora, and many more. And they can stream their music from virtually any device - Android, iOS, Kindle Fire or PC.

Dual rear-firing bass ports reinforce the bass extension for astonishingly deep bass and can be adjusted plus or minus 10dB to custom tailor bass performance. For bass aficionados who desire the deepest bass experience, the built-in SWT-2 transmitter allows, at the touch of a button, the addition of a compatible wireless MartinLogan subwoofer. For those who desire a non-wireless subwoofer, Motion Vision X offers simple wired connectivity.

The Motion Vision X also received a cosmetic upgrade from MartinLogan's dedicated in-house design and engineering team—the luscious, high-gloss, piano black sculpture with the visually unobtrusive design remains, but a clear anodized brushed aluminum metal accent was added to the new and improved 5-button on-board navigation panel—better functionality with a welcome modern touch. The new full size extruded black-aluminum remote is an upgrade from the credit card remote included with the previous generation. Also, a new slender wall bracket minimizes visibility when the soundbar is wall-mounted.

Installation couldn't be easier thanks to built-in amplification paired with digital optical, digital coaxial, analog stereo and Ethernet inputs that allow effortless hook-up of Blu-ray/DVD/CD players, gaming consoles, satellite receivers, and other external sources. Just plug them in and you're ready within minutes to rediscover your favorite music and movies. The Motion Vision X installs quickly and easily on a wall with the included mounting bracket, or it can be placed on a shelf for an elegantly simple installation. We've included a setting that optimizes sound for either scenario, ensuring you'll get the best sound regardless of location.

The Motion Vision X soundbar will begin shipping Q4 of 2015 priced at $1,699.95 per system (US MSRP).
