Faithful to its permanent commitment to applying the most advanced technology to its renowned speaker systems, the veteran American firm MartinLogan has just announced the market launch of the new generation of two of its most reputable and commercially successful ranges in the most competitive High End field: the “basic” Motion X and the upper Motion XT, made up of, respectively, five and four models. These are the F20 and F10 columns (both with 3 channels/4 speakers), the speaker for the central channel C10 (2.5 channels/3 speakers), the B10 bookshelf monitor (2 channels/2 speakers) and the MP10 multi-application monitor (2 channels/2 speakers) in the case of the Motion and the F200 and F100 columns (both with 3 channels/5 speakers), the C100 center channel speaker (2.5 channels/3 speakers) and the B10 bookshelf monitor (2-way/2-speaker) as far as the Motion XT is concerned. “Distinctive design, elegant execution, sound of great beauty”.
This is how MartinLogan presents his “reimagined” Motion family, beneficiary of a renewed aesthetics and superior technical parameters compared to its predecessor, thanks to the combined use of state-of-the-art design, manufacturing and measurement systems. In the electroacoustic field, the most outstanding novelty is undoubtedly the Gen2 Obsidian Folded Motion Tweeter, a sophisticated folded-diaphragm tweeter that takes advantage of the latest in thin-film processing and a host of critical internal improvements, including waveguide Folded Motion Waveguidewhich enable you to offer a cleaning, a Level of detail, dispersion control and precision surpassed only by the legendary electrostatic panels of the Lawrence (Kansas) firm. As for the midrange and midrange/bass speakers, they use intertwined glass fiber cones, while the woofers include aluminum diaphragms and powerful magnetic magnets that guarantee delicacy, depth and punch. For their part, frequency divider filters combine the exclusive McCracken-Vojtko topology from MartinLogan with audiophile grade components.
Finally, let us point out that the two floor references include a lower-emitting bass-reflex port (“Single Cannon” configuration), as well as the innovative devices adjustable decoupling/stabilization FAST of the American company. Moving on to the Motion XT (“eXTreme”) range, its key differentiating element is that it takes the Motion philosophy and engineering even further by incorporating the speakers that constitute the tweeter Gen2 Obsidian Folded Motion XT Tweeterwhose emissive surface is 40% greater than that of the Motion series, midrange and mid/bass transducers with Kevlar cone reinforced with Nomex and, in the case of the two columns, two lower-emitting bass-reflex ports (configuration “ Twin Cannon”), the result being a extraordinary versatility and naturalness from immaculately constructed enclosures that blend exquisitely into any space.
