MARTINLOGAN BRINGS SOPHISTICATION AND SONIC PRECISION WITH MOTION SERIES
With sleek styling and extreme versatility, MartinLogan’s newest speaker line brings their world renowned sonic realism to a compact speaker series at an extremely competitive price.
Las Vegas, NV – International CES 2010 – MartinLogan, the Great American Speaker Company, announces the Motion™ Series, the company’s first products to feature exquisite Folded Motion™ technologies. Inspired by MartinLogan’s legendary ultra-high-end electrostatic loudspeakers, the Motion Series provides unparalleled sonic realism in even the smallest of home theaters or 2-channel listening environments—starting at under $200 (US retail) per channel.
MartinLogan’s dedicated in-house engineering team carefully crafted the Motion Series to create an extremely affordable and compact product line with stunning dynamic range and jaw-dropping clarity. Key to the Motion Series sonic performance is the unique Folded Motion tweeter (similar to tweeter technologies found in ultra expensive speakers), precision high-end Vojtko™ crossovers, powerful compact woofers, and acoustically inspired cabinet design. These technologies along with nearly 50 years of combined engineering experience result in a product that establishes a radical new paradigm for price verses performance.
Complementing the Motion Series sonic accuracy is elegant yet understated styling that includes subtle curves coated in a flawless high-gloss, piano black finish. Motion Series floor standing tower models feature real-wood veneer that provide a stylish aesthetic certain to blend with any décor.

looks like ML is becoming the new BOSE. Too bad.
These sound (the two lowest end ones) far, far better than they have any business sounding. With the ML badge and for the price and size, I have to admit I was blown away. In their price ranges I think they are extremely competitive.
Just my humble opinion.
