Remember the old-school TVs that barely fit in your living room, and that seemed to weigh tons? Well, we all know those are long gone (aside for the one sitting in your basement), but what about speakers? Why should we settle for the heavy, chunky speakers of the past when the rest of the technology around us seems to get smaller and smaller?
MartinLogan, the world’s leader in electrostatic speaker technology, is on the front lines of the “skinny speaker” revolution. They recently added a Larger Motion SLM XL to their line-up of ultra-slim performance speakers, and it’s definitely going to be at the top of everyone’s must-have list.
The slender Motion SLM XL is only 1.45 inches thin, and is a step-up larger version of the original Motion SLM. It features deal four-inch, ultra-slim fiber cone woofers and quad four-inch high-velocity passive bass radiators, as well as a Folded motion tweeter, all in an ultra-slim profile that will match your super-thin TV perfectly. Designed for maximum placement flexibility, you can put your MartinLogan Motion SLM XL just about anywhere you please. Use the keyhole slots on the speaker’s back panel to easily attach to a wall bracket for mounting, or if you prefer to keep your speakers grounded, let it stand on it’s gloss-black vase. You can even lay it down horizontally, and the 80 x 80 dispersion pattern will allow the audio to sound exactly the same as it would if the speaker was right side up. If you have trouble trying to find the perfect spot, no need to worry! The slim shape makes it easy to move, which is convenient for those of us who catch a bad case of feng-shui/Pinterest/redesign fever from time to time.
When it comes to delivering quality audio, the Motion SLM XL doesn’t disappoint. The advanced resolution Folded Motion tweeter features lightning-fast transient response and a surface area eight-times that of a typical 1″ dome tweeter, for clear, highly dynamic and precise sound. MartinLogan’s dedicated in-house engineers carefully crafted the Motion Series as an affordable and compact product line that seamlessly blends the exquisite Folded Motion transducers with powerful, compact bass technology. The result is a smooth, refined sound with stunning dynamic range and jaw-dropping clarity.
If you’re still holding on to your chunky, old speakers, you know it’s time for an upgrade, and MartinLogan can definitely help you bring your home theater out of 1997, and into 2013. Click here to visit their site for more details.
