MartinLogan recently announced the all new ElectroMotion Series featuring the thin film transducer technologies, electrostatic and compact Folded Motion. The ElectroMotion Series floorstanding loudspeaker, the ElectroMotion ESL (EM-ESL), will feature the most affordable full-size XStat electrostatic transducer ever offered by MartinLogan. Voice-matched center and surround speakers will feature the next iteration of Folded Motion technology: the Folded Motion XT tweeter.
Starting under $2,000 per pair, the EM-ESL represents a new direction for MartinLogan. Featuring a full-sized 34-inch tall curvilinear XStat electrostatic transducer, the new EM-ESL features a sensitivity rated at 91dB into 6 Ohms. A unique XStat electrostatic transducer was developed for the new loudspeaker, reducing the gauge thickness of the panel's steel stators.
MartinLogan's new model features an 8-inch high-excursion doped fiber cone woofer custom. The company claims this custom woofer's diaphragm eliminates cone flexure and maximizes response time to achieve levels of performance approaching that of MartinLogan's electrostatic panel design.
The ElectroMotion Series features convenient push-style speaker terminals, adopted from MartinLogan's Motion Series, with curved inserts that help guide speaker wire into place.
Priced at $1,995 per pair, the ElectroMotion ESL is scheduled to ship in March 2011.
