MartinLogan Introduces The Neolith

By |


martinlogan.jpgThe Neolith is the newest speaker to come from MartinLogan, known for their hybrid electrostatic models. The Neolith continues this tradition, and is a natural evolution from their previous model, the Monolith. This is good news for electrostatic speaker fans, as MartinLogan's various models have been very well-recieved for their looks and performance.

From MartinLogan

MartinLogan, the world's leader in electrostatic speaker technology, proudly unveils their upcoming statement class hybrid electrostatic speaker, Neolith. Culminating from MartinLogan's three-decade long history of pushing the limits of audio technology, Neolith combines a stunning performance that evokes the legendary Statement Evolution 2 loudspeaker while capturing the iconic simplicity of MartinLogan's original inspiration--the Monolith.

When released in 1983 MartinLogan's Monolith hybrid electrostatic loudspeaker, with its gossamer thin transparent diaphragm, represented an exciting new direction for electrostatic technology. The iconic new low-mass curvilinear design, combined with exhaustive crossover engineering and dynamic driver research, set new standards for dynamic range, precision, and bandwidth.


STATEMENT LEVEL PERFORMANCE

While Monolith was our inspiration, Neolith's technical execution and unrestrained performance evokes MartinLogan's legendary Statement evolution 2 loudspeaker. In comparison, Neolith features a 22x48-inch electrostatic transducer with a radiating surface 35% larger than that of the Statement e2. Flawlessly matched with the electrostatic panel, a 15-inch rear-firing ported woofer and 12-inch front firing sealed mid-bass woofer deliver deeply moving, powerful, and extremely accurate bass down to 23Hz. A fully passive design allows customers to single wire or bi-amp the speaker with high-performance audiophile grade solid state or tube amplifiers.

Neolith is built with an exceptional, super-dense composite material, creating an ideal baffle with a high-mass design that inherently minimizes cabinet vibrations resulting from reactive forces of the powerful woofers.

Featuring MartinLogan's largest electrostatic radiating surface to date, Neolith's proprietary curvilinear electrostatic transducer delivers an enveloping 3-dimensional soundstage. MartinLogan's unique controlled dispersion electrostatic technology results in a single transducer capable of reproducing nearly the entire the audio spectrum while minimizing undesirable acoustic interactions with a listening room's side walls, floor, and ceiling.

Neolith's hybrid system delivers living sound--perfectly rendered as it was originally performed with the distinct energy and personality of every voice and every instrument.


FINISH OPTIONS & AVAILABILITY

The handcrafted Neolith will be available in a variety of custom luxury paint finishes. Full details on these colors, pricing, availability and the all important technical specifications will be available at a later date; keep checking the MartinLogan web page in the months to come: www.martinlogan.com/neolith
