MartinLogan ElectroMotion ESL X Speaker System Review

 

MartinLogan's ESL X tower speakers deliver delicacy and detail—along with serious dynamics when paired with the Dynamo 1500X subwoofer. A new, more compact electrostatic center speaker sweetens the deal.

Excellent performance with music and movies; Perfect Bass Kit for sub eases setup; Compact electrostatic center speaker

Some timbral shift between center channel and towers; Towers and center require AC power

MartinLogan ElectroMotion ESL Speaker System

 

That's right. I hate MartinLogan with a passion that borders on the obsessive. And there's more to it than the fact that the company's headquarters in Lawrence, Kansas, are just a hop, skip, and a third-and-long TD pass away from KU. (As a graduate of...

Quality sound at a reasonable price.

 

My speakers are not "broken in" yet (72 hrs. I'm told). However, the sound already seems lighter and more natural than other floor standing box speakers that I have owned over the years.

A Natural and Spacious Experience!

 

I came from a pair of Polk Towers and I am blown away. The amount of detail is unbelievable. In the store I was leaning towards a pair of B&W's and a Marantz PM8005 amp in another room. The associate was kind enough to hook up the ML's next to the...

Beautiful sound quality for classical music

 

We use two of these speakers in a 5.0 configuration with a center speaker and two bookshelf speakers at the back; no sub-woofer. They are quite unobtrusive compared with the much larger main speakers I previously used but the sound quality is just as...

Great speaker

 

I moved up from Klipsch ref speakers and the sound has more detail to it. Very happy with the purchase even at the cost which is high but, well whether it.

Wow

 

If you are looking for Wow in your home theater system then these are the speakers for you. The sound rivals the best theaters have to offer. I have mated them with 4 Motion 4s, a Motion 30 center and a Dynamo 700W sub to complete the 7.1 system all...
