MartinLogan Motion 40i Theater System Review

 

The looks have been improved, but it's all about the delivery. And spoiler alert: MartinLogan delivers. Brand spanking new, MartinLogan adds to the...

Beautiful fit and finish ; Cohesive soundstage ; Clear highs, mids, and deep bass ; Great at loud and quiet moments ; This replacing my current system

This replacing my current system

This isn’t a budget system. It’s a step-up from my entry-level system and all in will run you about five grand (CAD) all in. Should a 12-inch 650-watt sub be too big for your listening room you could save a few bucks and get a smaller sub, you’re in...

MartinLogan Motion 40 Loudspeakers Reviewed

 

Sometimes you get what you pay for and sometimes you get more than you pay for. At a $2,000 price tag, the MartinLogan Motion 40 loudspeakers could be either. Sean Killebrew reviews them to find out which is true.

While you do get what you pay for, especially when it comes to high-end speakers, the Motion 40s really do perform above their price point. If you enjoy clean, highly articulate highs and mids, these are going to make you smile. Bass junkies might want...

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...

MartinLogan Motion 40 Loudspeaker

 

Aside from affordability, the Motion Series is notable for its use of Folded Motion high-frequency drivers across the line. These tweeters start life as a large rectangle (5.25 inches by 1.75 inches) of thin-film diaphragm material that's pleated and...
