PMC Distribution UK introduce Martin Logan NEW Motion® Series

Thursday, August 22, 2019

PMC Distribution UK, distributor for the entire Martin Logan range in the UK, is pleased to announce seven new Motion® Series loudspeakers for music or home cinema, making the Martin Logan performance available in a cabinet speaker to a wider audience.
Since its introduction, the Motion Series has been highly respected, gaining acclaim for its performance and value across the world. Replacing such a well-regarded range is always a daunting task, and so Martin Logan has stuck to the successful formula, keeping the same benchmark-performance technology as in previous generations, but updated with a stylish new design. At the heart of the Motion Series is the DNA of Martin Logan’s legendary electrostatic loudspeakers. 
The slimline and elegant cabinets, for the 15i and 35TXi bookshelf speakers, 30i and 50TXi centre channel designs and 20i, 40i and 60TXi floorstanders, are finished in Matte White, Red Walnut or Gloss Black. The cabinets feature reinforced baffles, virtually eliminating cabinet resonances.
Each speaker provides a fast transient response and distortion free output from its Folded Motion tweeters, a technology that provides the accuracy and delicacy of an electrostatic panel from a compact driver. Aluminium cone drive units generate a broad, realistic midrange, with dynamics that smoothly blended with deep, musical bass, thanks to the exacting tolerances of the custom, hand-built crossovers. The bookshelf speakers are two-way designs and the three floorstanding models and both centre channel speakers are three-way designs.
Martin Logan’s Folded Motion tweeters utilise a lightweight, thin-film transducer design, which is crimped into an accordion-like structure to increase the surface area, giving Folded Motion tweeters 8–10 times more surface area than typical tweeters. This ideal combination of light and large produces higher levels of accuracy, more extended bandwidth, and higher output capability. All Folded Motion and Folded Motion XT (larger driver) models demonstrate a faster, more efficient transient response and virtually zero distortion, making the perfect for critical music reproduction or the dynamics of a movie soundtrack.
The aluminium cone mid-frequency and bass drivers are custom built, stiff and lightweight with high-power magnet structures. These deliver massive excursion and sound output and maximise power handling capability, while at the same time preserving the minute details in the music, without a hint of colouration. A new concave dust cap design reinforces the strength and rigidity of the cone while reducing break up modes. 
Linking the elements of the speaker together are the proprietary Vojtkotm crossover networks. Straightforward topologies, using high- quality polypropylene and low-DF electrolytic capacitors and custom wound inductors, coupled with pragmatic, real-world voicing delivers a reliable, realistic performance in any listening space. 
Introducing the new Motion Series, Ian Sutton, divisional director for PMC Distribution UK, says, “Martin Logan has come up with a stunning range of speakers, that brings the incredible performance benefits of its world-renowned electrostatic speakers to the wider consumer market.” He continues, “Replacing the original Motion Series was never going to be an easy task, but I am delighted to report that these new models take that tried and tested performance and elevate it to a new level. We look forward to sharing them with the UK’s audiophile and movie-loving consumers.”
The Motion Series will be available from October 2019.
