MartinLogan Releases The Motif – A Hybrid Electrostatic Speaker
MartinLogan, a Loudspeaker Technology Company, has released the new Motif hybrid electrostatic loudspeaker designed for use as a center, front or surround channel in any system—from 2-channel stereo to multi-channel home theater.
Motif is a highly evolved expression of the same ideas and engineering that spawned MartinLogan's flagship Stage center-channel speaker. State-of-the-art XStat electrostatic transducer technology, dual aluminum-cone woofers, and highly sophisticated Vojtko crossover engineering deliver unrivaled precision and intelligibility.
• HD-XStat (Hybrid Dynamic XStat) Technology
• XStat Electrostatic Transducer featuring: Advanced Vacuum Bonding, MicroPerf Stators, ClearSpar technology, CLS (Curvilinear Line Source)
• Dual High-Resolution 5.25-inch Aluminum Cone Woofers
• High-Resolution Neodymium Tweeter
• Precision Performance Crossover Engineering
• Toolless Pivoting Stand
• Wall-Mount Brackets and Installation Template
• Low-Voltage Power Supply
What really sets the Motif apart is a high-resolution neodymium soft dome tweeter embedded directly in the electrostatic panel. The Motif all but eliminates high-frequency diffraction. This unique mounting system also increases mid-range/high-frequency phase coherence and time alignment while offering superior dispersion characteristics.
Motif’s advanced XStat transducer, MicroPerf stator technology, ClearSpar spacers, and vacuum bonding combine with a highly refined crossover topology to greatly maximize efficiency for an effortless, unlimited dynamic presentation.
Using only the finest polypropylene capacitors and air-core coils, Motif's crossover employs MartinLogan's proprietary Vojtko topology for vanishingly low distortion and seamless driver integration. This precision-tuned network preserves even the most subtle sonic nuances while handling the full dynamics of any source.
Wall-mount brackets and a toolless pivoting stand (with 35 degrees of motion) allow Motif to serve as either a center or surround speaker, mounted on- or off-wall, horizontally or vertically. An optional vertical floor stand is available.
Motif is available at MartinLogan ESL Series dealers including independent retailers and mass-market retailers such as Tweeter. Retailing for $1,695
