Motion: Reimagined.

Lawrence, KS – MartinLogan, the leader in high-performance loudspeakers, is excited to announce the release of not one but two new product lines, the Motion® and the Motion® XT. This premium collection of loudspeakers has been completely reimagined with a fresh attitude, sleek design, and advanced audio technology for the ultimate listening experience.

A unique execution utilizing the most advanced technologies and materials, the new Motion® Series offers unmatched performance, while the stunning design compliments even the most elegant interiors with your choice of three available finishes (Gloss Black, Walnut, Satin White).

“We wanted to provide the team at ML the opportunity to define the future direction of the brand with a truly clean slate design,” said John Bagby, Managing Director, “The result is a collection of loudspeakers that are not just an upgrade of its predecessor, but a whole new level of quality and excellence.”

Customers will love the Motion® Series for its superior sound quality, enhanced design and the level of detail, passion, and craftsmanship that go into every model. With its advanced technologies, such as the new and improved drivers and waveguide design, the Motion® Series offers unparalleled sound reproduction and a truly immersive listening experience. The sleek and stylish design of the speakers makes them a perfect fit for any space.

“When the Motion® Series launched in 2010, we had no idea how much of a following the technology would generate,” said Allan Tarrant, Senior Vice President. “This fourth-generation product is truly a game changer for our brand. Our team has truly outdone themselves with the performance, craftsmanship and level of attention that went into creating these new models.”

This new range features a host of new audio innovations exclusive to the company, including:
