Engineering Genius

Wat maakt de Motion Series zo geweldig? Het toegewijde interne engineeringteam van MartinLogan begon met het gebruiken en verfijnen van de meest geavanceerde, compacte technologieën en deze te combineren met innovatieve engineering. Het resultaat is een emotioneel aantrekkelijk geluid dat rivalen (en meestal trounces) van traditionele luidsprekers van vergelijkbare grootte en prijs.

De Motion 20 is een adembenemend visueel statement, ongeacht de compacte afmetingen. Dubbele 5-1 / 2-inch aluminium conuswoofers worden gecombineerd met een achterste baspoort voor extra punch in de lage frequenties. Met de toevoeging van onze Folded Motion-tweeter is het een ontwerp dat solide laagfrequente versterking, uitstekende geluidsdispersie en precieze, zeer dynamische hoge frequenties.

Folded Motion® Tweeters

De kenmerkende Folded Motion tweeters gebruiken diafragma's met extreem lage massa die lucht "persen" en vereisen aanzienlijk minder excursie dan de typische 1-inch dome-tweeter, die vervorming drastisch minimaliseert en tegelijkertijd een bliksemsnelle responstijd biedt. Het grotere oppervlak biedt ook een brede, maar gecontroleerde geluidsdispersie om een realistisch en zorgvuldig geëtst geluidsbeeld te creëren.

MartinLogan Motion 20 Loudspeakers

"MartinLogan’s Motion 20 is a compelling option for anyone shopping for speakers in the range of $1500 to $2000/pair. It conveys music in a detailed manner, with pinpoint imaging and surprisingly powerful bass for its size. And while I generally preferred GoldenEar Technology’s more expensive Triton Five for classical music, the Motion 20 was in some ways the more versatile speaker -- and better equipped to rock out. If you want dynamic, extended sound from a compact floorstander, the MartinLogan Motion 20 can deliver it."

It was about 3 years I was looking for a new and best performing speaker for my home audiophile system (Naim amplifications). I had a pair of Epos ELS303 towers since 8 years. I listen Davis Acoustics Maya, Q Acoustics Concept 40, Epos M22i , Neat Motive SX1. Motion 20 and Motion 40 impressed me specially for Symphonic and solo piano (that I do not like or listed); that was amazing and I decided to buy it!

I'm a believer! Own B&W 685s -- needed to upgrade. Granted, Motion 20s aren't exactly a fair comparison to bookshelfs, but let's say I had no idea the sound I've been missing. One reason I didn't upgrade to B&W floorstanders was because I hear too much midrange across their entire line-up, and high/low comes out muffled. The Motion 20s are connected to a Yamaha A-S801 two channel integrated amp. (Plenty of power for my needs). Sound separation: excellent. Build quality: excellent.

Terrific for Music!
I've had my Motion 20's for a few weeks now, and they sound like they're broken in. When looking for speakers in the 1600 USD price range it was hard to find many reviews of the Motion 20's, but I was able to audition them at Audio Visions locally. I compared them with others I could hear locally, B&W, Paradigm, Monitor, Definitive, Revel, Golden Ear and a few more. All speakers in this price range sound good, but not all speakers in this price range look good, too. I had heard the Motion 20's first and then went on my months long search. After some time I mostly remembered how much I liked the looks of the Motion 20's, but the sound is more important. The Motion 20's were the shortest and narrowest of what I auditioned, and I wondered if they would be big enough for my 13X17X10 living room. It's an odd room with very little reflection. With the competition fresh in mind, I went back and checked out the Motion 20's again, thinking I'd probably have to go up to the 40's if I stayed with Martin Logan. I was wrong - the Motion 20's definitely hold their own and fill my room with well balanced, articulate sound. I listen to mostly guitar based Rock and don't watch movies with these. My sub is currently not hooked up. So far, I haven't missed the sub at all. I toed in the speakers slightly and they're about 15 inches from the back wall and over 2 feet away from any side wall. The bass is solid and has nice depth. It's not just a one note thump. The highs are just better than most of the competition. The Motion 20's play music louder without losing control and getting muddy or losing their soundstage than most speakers. I read somewhere that the Motion series was just a placeholder for Martin Logan. I can't disagree with this statement more. These sound different from the Electrostatic speakers. There are advantages and disadvantages to both designs and Martin Logan has certainly become a major player in both, which can only be good news for people looking for speakers. There's a Motion speaker for every sized room, and the Motion 20's are perfect for mine. I love the sound foremost, but the visual appeal really can't be overlooked. The Motion 20's are quite stunning to look at. A lot of speakers in this price range use flat black vinyl or just a big cloth sock as a cover. The soft corners and glossy black finish and the metal grills of the Motion 20's don't seem to call attention to themselves, but so far, when people have noticed them, they have to go up and look at them. The 1600 dollar a pair range is a lot for some of us, and the Motion 20's don't give up anything in terms of looks or sound. I couldn't be happier with this decision.

I have had a lot of great speakers but these are my first Martin Logan's. I've wanted a pair for years and I so glad I bought these. Amazing right out of the box. Using a Carver to run them and they respond very well even at low volume. The ribbon tweeter is so crisp and smooth at the same time, no shrill highs. And the bass from these is well amazing, you'd swear there is a sub hooked up to them. If you want value and great sound these are for you. Dave

Motion 20 speakers....Very Pleased!
After upgrading my TV, I was going to replace my large, 20+ year old Polk Aidio speakers with a higher end sound bar. I had all but handed over my credit card when I walked into the audio room. I listened to a variety of speakers including the Motion 40s. The 40s were above my price range, but, wow! Anyway, the sales person suggested the Motion 20s. They did not have any to demo, but, after listening to the 40s, I took a chance and bought the Motion 20s on faith. I could not be more happy! I spent more money than I had planned and I'm glad I did. Sound bars are fine, but, nothing beats a nice pair of analog speakers. I new to Martin Logan, and am an instant fan. If you are considering the Motion series, don't hesitate. Pure quality.

Best of the Bunch
The Motion series speakers are a group that is underrated and over preforming. After continually comparing Motion 20's to other loud speakers in the same price range from other brands like B&W, Paradigm, Definitive Technology and even some pioneer elites. it was a 2 way battle. the B&W 683 S2 and the motion 20s. with a pricing difference of about 50 bucks price would no longer be considered. The 683's have a wide sound stage, well controlled and fairly deep bass, and are a pleasure to listen too. the major downfall here is the tweeter. the highs really suffered on female voices and some high pitched guitar solos. With the motion 20's the soundstage was equally as large as the B&W's the midrange faired as well as the bowers, but in no way better. the highs were airy, flowing, clean, and seemingly endless. the folded motion tweeter that ML developed puts the high frequency reproduction in the motion speakers above some speakers that are 10 times the cost. unfortunately for the motion 20 model at least, the bass lacked a solid "umph" which can break the immersion in 2 Channel music with a dynamic sway. after weighing out the pros and cons i quickly realized that you can always get bass from a subwoofer to compensate for the towers but you can't do much to improve the highs. Motion 20 is the winner. and I would buy them again and again.
