Why is there a short period of silence when audio starts playing on my soundbar?

Created: Sep 19 2019 | Updated: Sep 19 2018

The Motion Vision was designed to provide the discerning MartinLogan customer an exceptional experience with both music and movies. As part of this, Vision’s processor needs to be able to detect and switch automatically between multiple audio formats such as Dolby Digital, DTS, PCM Stereo, etc. Depending on the source material, there are times where you may experience a slight (1 second +/-) delay when switching channels or changing tracks as the processor detects your optimum audio format. Note this can be particularly noticeable on certain compact discs, based on how they are authored. This slight delay is considered completely normal.

Uncompromising performance. Unflinching accuracy. Unwavering reliability. Harnessing the myriad technical advantages of electrostatic principles to recreate sound in its truest form—this is what MartinLogan is all about.
