Loudspeaker manufacturer MartinLogan has added three new models to its Motion Series: the Motion 60XT floor standing, Motion 50XT center channel, and Motion 35XT bookshelf speaker.
Motion 60XT floor standing, Motion 50XT center channel, and Motion 35XT bookshelf speaker.
According to the company, the “XT” in the model names stands for extreme — and the new Motion XT speakers play louder, lower, and with “unflinching accuracy.” Larger woofers and cabinets, paired with MartinLogan’s Folded Motion XT driver, deliver an engaging and encompassing audio experience.
Motion XT speakers’ high-performance components include high-excursion, black aluminum cone woofers with low-turbulence, rear-firing, bass ports that provide extended, powerful bass; larger more accurate Folded Motion XT tweeters that boast a radiating surface that is 40% larger than other Motion Series speakers for ultra-low distortion; and a dedicated mid-woofer on the Motion 60XT that promotes an even more open, revealing, and authentic sound in the critical midrange. The result is acoustic alchemy across the frequency spectrum, creating a realistic musical experience.
Motion XT speakers include a high-gloss finish, subtle angled-top cabinets with soft radius corners, and signature MartinLogan perforated grilles.
MartinLogan’s dedicated in-house engineering team created the Motion Series to provide speakers with dynamic range and clarity. Additional refinements include custom 5-way bi-wire tool-less binding posts that allow 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.
