MartinLogan Motion Vision X Soundbar Review
"...the Vision X offers an elevated listening experience that is notably better than what most soundbars can muster... you get what you pay for from MartinLogan. Is it three times better than a $500 model? Yes. Is it twice as good as any $800 soundbar I’ve heard? Yes. High fidelity is what sets the Vision X apart from its competition, and I have never heard another powered soundbar sound so much like a high-quality speaker system. The Vision X is a great choice for a modern living room where a full-sized stereo is not an option but high-quality sound is desired."
As a musician (vocalist) I can easily attest that for folks like me whom have an acoustic friendly living room and can't run wires that the venerable ML Vision X easily triumphs all the sound bars I've owned and heard, including the Yamaha YSP-5600, and the underwhelming Sony HT-ST5000 to name a few.
I paired this with the ML Dynamo 700W for the perfect setup!
For movies, games, tv, and music I can easily pick up sounds and detail that I couldn't hear before, and the specs and build quality is impeccable and you certainly get what you pay for, and I'm using an Audioquest Cinnamon optical cable for the connection.
The surround sound is excellent, and when not listening to anything in surround I leave each of the settings on normal with the least processing for flawless sound performance, however I suggest having patience and adjusting accordingly to your room size and listening preferences.
No need for Atmos here for my living space and the sub is nice 'n tight and responsive and deep when it's gotta be, and the wireless setup is beautiful so far without any hitches. The only feature I haven't yet delved into is the Play-Fi.
The friendly folks at Best Buy Magnoilia dept helped me tremendously with this order and sealed the audio deal for me on the "very best" sound bar (not requiring an A/V setup and wires) in the market.
I paired the Motion Vision X with the Dynamo 700W. It goes beyond all my expectations!!!!! Martin Logan has got it right with this one! The voices are clear. The range of sounds are very natural, clear where they need be, and dynamic where they need be. It really hits the sweet spot! I have not heard another soundbar that can compare.
Martin Logan Can Mix olie and water It's amazing... It's incredible. Martin Logan has done it again. This time with a sound bar to hang under the TV. Bass control is incredible. The sound is very homogeneous. nice tight bass and detailed top. The mid-range is well defined. In other words, water is mixed with oil, metaphorically speaking.

Martin Logan has created a superstar sound bar. A week ago I upgraded from the Motion Vision, to the Motion Vision X. I immediately noticed a difference in the sound quality. The mids and highs were more pronounced. My Dynamo 700 subwoofer came to life unlike when connected to the previous model, and sounds 30 to 40% better. (No exaggeration). This new model is Wi-Fi ready and has a Play-Fi app which allows you to stream music from your devices to the sound bar. The new remote control is much larger than the previous one, is made out of metal and has an elegant design. The problems and concerns from the previous model have been addressed on this newest revision. There’s a new feature that allows you to adjust the surround, which helps to more accurately simulate 5.1. The sound from this unit is so robust a subwoofer is not required unless you desire room shaking bass. Martin Logan support provides impeccable service and are very responsive. This sound bar is for people that want accurate, warm and natural sound, with pronounced midrange frequencies. Martin Logan has built a reputation by manufacturing high end audio products with unique designs that appeal to audiophiles and those with a sense of style. If this is what you are looking for in a high end sound bar the Motion Vision X is for you.
