Stylish and Powerful

When you place these lush looking speakers in your living room you maybe reminded of your Grandfather's Jag. Wood veneer and black leather, slick, mature with a James Bond allure. Just like Grandads Jag tho, the gentleman looks underestimate their performance, put the pedal to the metal and your pushed back into your seat with 300 horsepower's worth of thrill and excitement. A large mid woofer, ribbon tweeter and substantial enclosure are its powerhouse. These speakers play loud and can be pushed hard while keeping a consistent performance, free from distortion and stress. The bass is deep, punchy and rhythmic, the mids and highs are revealing and entertaining. The sound is slightly forward of neutral in the upper mids which can make them a little critical of poor recordings. Bad in equals bad out, so need to be matched carefully with other components. If paired well you are in for a treat. They setup a big wide soundstage and the speakers instantly disappear into the room. They aren't fussy on placement so getting a centre image is easy. Being slightly forward sounding, depth and 3D imaging aren't its strong point but that's in no way a deal breaker for these. These speakers will be a love them or hate them item, visually and musically, so get them home for a demo on your system as it's a lot of speaker for your money, should it suit your taste. Enjoy.

Description

MartinLogan Motion 35XTi Bookshelf Speakers

The classic performance technologies in the MartinLogan Motion 35XTi Bookshelf Speakers have been enhanced by the slightest of modifications, including the drive-stabilizing dust cap design and stiffened motor suspension. The speaker’s enclosure sports a reinforced baffle and a fabric grille.

Available in three stylish finishes: gloss black, matte white, and red walnut.

“They can reach blazing loud levels without losing composure. If I had a more powerful amplifier, I think I could have pushed them even harder than I did. If you need bookshelf speakers that can rock hard, these are a great choice.”—James Larson, Audioholocs

 

Features

Engineering, Without Compromises
What makes the Motion Series sound so amazing? MartinLogan’s dedicated in-house engineering and design team started by utilizing and refining the most advanced, compact technologies and combining them with innovative engineering and time-honored cabinet construction techniques. The result is an emotionally engaging sound that rivals (and most times trounces) traditional loudspeakers of similar size and price. Our ‘no compromise’ philosophy gives Motion Series a unique sound you won’t find anywhere else.

Sound Inspired by Electrostatic Speakers
The success of the Motion Series is directly attributed to its close relation to MartinLogan’s legendary ultra-high-end electrostatic loudspeakers. The desire to transmute that level of performance into a more traditional loudspeaker at a more affordable price drove the initial design imperatives that created the Motion Series.

Folded Motion® XT Tweeters
MartinLogan’s signature Folded Motion tweeter utilizes an extremely low mass diaphragm that “squeezes” air, thus demanding significantly less excursion than the typical 1-inch dome tweeter. Its folded design allows for a much larger surface area (compared to that of a regular 1-inch dome tweeter), controlled dispersion characteristics, and vanishingly low distortion. It’s a miracle of audio engineering that’s able to deliver much of the high-frequency detail and speed of a large, dynamic electrostatic panel in a small space. Folded Motion XT tweeters, advanced thin-film transducer technology even further, with a 40% larger radiating surface and 80×30-degree controlled dispersion. This tweak increases audible bandwidth without sacrificing details and minimizes distortion to an unprecedented level while increasing efficiency and the tweeter’s already lightning-fast response time. The result—superior realism and alarming specificity is aurally astounding, and only by MartinLogan.

Powerful Aluminum Cone Mid-Frequency and Bass Drivers
Custom built, low-distortion drivers pair high-power magnet structures with aluminum cone diaphragms to deliver massive excursion and sound output, preserve minute bass details, and maximize power handling capability, all without a hint of distortion. A unique concave dust cap design reinforces the strength and rigidity of the cone while reducing break up modes.

The use of aluminum for cones maximizes rigidity and strength of the drivers without adding excessive weight. This, along with the exceptional damping properties of aluminum, ensures the smooth, non-resonant response necessary for seamless blending with high-resolution Folded Motion tweeters. An added benefit of aluminum is its outstanding thermal conduction capability which allows cones to serve as efficient heat sinks for voice coils.

To deliver accuracy in the critical midrange, mid-frequency drivers feature a specially engineered “stiff” suspension. Stiffening the suspension (the spider and surround) raises the driver’s resonant frequency and optimizes its performance to achieve a natural roll-off and inherently operate within an ideal range for a mid-frequency reproduction (as opposed to a comparably sized woofer).

Proprietary Vojtko™ Crossover Networks
MartinLogan Motion 35XTi Bookshelf Speakers feature proprietary Vojtko crossover networks using polypropylene and low-DF electrolytic capacitors, custom-wound inductors, and thermal and current protection.

Vojtko crossovers are named after MartinLogan’s chief audio technologist, Joe Vojtko. His unique approach to crossover design is as big of a part of the “MartinLogan Sound” as are electrostatic and Folded Motion thin-film driver technologies. A Vojtko crossover isn’t so much a set of design requirements as it is a philosophy. Vojtko crossovers are designed in such a way that all drivers are kept within their optimal frequency range and balanced with one another. The drivers themselves are as much a part of a Vojtko crossover as are capacitors and resistors. Before the design of any crossover begins, drivers are carefully selected or designed to operate within a very intentional frequency range and with precise and predictable performance parameters. Vojtko crossovers are always built from high-quality parts, and care is taken to avoid overly complex topologies—a straightforward objective due to the careful selection of woofers and tweeters. The final (and most critical) aspect of a Vojtko Crossover is that final voicing is conducted in a space that is indicative of a real-world environment. This pragmatic approach allows MartinLogan speakers to sound their best in real-world rooms.

Modern Design Featuring Luxurious Finishes
Discreetly hidden behind fabric wrapped magnetic grilles, Folded Motion and aluminum cone drivers are held securely in place beneath matte black trim that masks tweeter and woofer mounting hardware for a clean, modern aesthetic. Solid cabinets, designed to eliminate fidelity robbing vibrations, are constructed from 18mm (0.7-inch) MDF with 31mm (1.2-inch) thick front baffles. MartinLogan Motion 35XTi Bookshelf Speakers feature additional internal bracing to further reduce cabinet resonance.

MartinLogan’s premier Motion Series speakers are available in three luxurious finishes and matching metallic trim—gloss black with black grilles and gunmetal grey trim, matte white with silver grilles and silver trim, and red walnut with black grilles and champagne colored trim.

Custom 5-Way Tool-less Binding Posts
Premium gold-plated 5-way tool-less binding posts assure a stable connection while accommodating a wide range of connections.

Two sets of binding posts accommodate bi-wire connections to increase signal carrying conductors and allow each portion of the crossover to be directly coupled to the amplifier.
