MartinLogan Motion 40 Loudspeaker

 

For the first 20 years or so, MartinLogan was just a geeky, tweaky speaker company that made electrostatic speakers—that's just as in Stephen Hawking is just a physicist—with a few very serious (and very hexagonal) subwoofers in the lineup to take over...

EXCELLENT VALUE & SUPERB SOUND

 

Doing again, the entire setup would be Motion 4 despite the ML MLT-2 being such a good deal with great sound that far exceeds what the 5.1 system actually costs from the EGG. The Yamaha 867 AV Receiver went south within warranty period and Square Trade...

This is an update to previous review. First a typo on speaker wire, it was 14AWG not 16ga reported due to the 30" distance for the back speaker (actually 12awg is technically better, just pay attention to distance, ohm rating for speakers n google it...

CONS : none really. You cannot make a very good SMALL speaker have the same quality and range of harmonics to provide sound quality that a really good LARGE speaker will have; however, a larger speaker of equal quality to the Small speaker it's being...

ML Motion 4

 

Very, very impressed with the sound. I am not an audiophile type. I wanted to fill my media room with as close to theater sound as my budget would allow.

Must have

 

Get a bunch of theses! They help make an awesome system. We started with two and moved up to four. Love Martin Logan! Glad they were on display or we may have never known.

Very happy/Second set

 

I am very happy with the speakers. So much I bought a second pair. I have a fairly good size living room and I run the four 40's bi amp with and 9.2 amp. Along with a center channel and two subs. Bi amp the speakers makes a noticeable difference. Nice...
