Product Details

Martin Logan Motion 15 Glossy Dark Cherry Bookshelf Speakers - MOTION15GDCL

Motion 15 extends the award-winning Motion® Series sound to a more traditional bookshelf package, with luxurious high-gloss wood finishes and matching aesthetics to the rest of the Motion floorstanding lineup.

The High-Performance Motion 15 bookshelf features an advanced resolution Folded Motion™ tweeter, a low-distortion 5.25-inch high-excursion black-aluminum woofer, and low-turbulence rear-firing bass port for extended bass performance, all in a traditional bookshelf package.

MartinLogan’s signature perforated steel grille attaches magnetically to the solidly constructed 3/4-inch thick MDF cabinets on the Motion 15. Hidden discretely underneath the grille, the drivers are held securely in place by a solid, black-anodized brushed aluminum baffle. Folded Motion tweeters and woofers are seamlessly blended with an advanced topology crossover network featuring polypropylene and low-DF electrolytic capacitors, custom wound inductors, and thermal and current protection. The Motion 15 also features recessed custom 5-way binding posts for connection versatility.

Features:

  • Minimalistic Design Featuring Luxurious Real-Wood Inspired by MartinLogan's ultra-high-end electrostatic loudspeakers, the Motion® Series was created to provide stunning sound for your ultimate-performance home theater or stereo. MartinLogan's dedicated in-house engineers carefully crafted the Motion Series to create an extremely affordable and compact product line that seamlessly blends our exquisite Folded Motion™ transducers with powerful, compact bass technology. The result is a smooth, refined sound with stunning dynamic range and jaw-dropping clarity.
  • Motion 15 speakers combine high-excursion, black aluminum cone woofers and low-turbulence, rear-firing, bass ports, providing an extended, powerful bass performance. Motion 15 speakers feature a single 5.25-inch driver. In each, MartinLogan's Folded Motion tweeter creates clear, highly dynamic, and precise sound. Premium, five-way binding posts assure a solid connection.
  • High-Gloss Finishes The Motion 15 is available in three luxurious high-gloss finishes; Piano Black, White or Black Cherrywood. The high-gloss black cherrywood finish has deep cherry undertones and appears almost black in low light, giving them a unique and understated elegance that blends into any environment.

Wow! These speakers are amazing.

Pros

  • Clear Airy Highs
  • High-quality Woodwork
  • Solid Bass For Bookshelf

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Near-field Listening

    I use these speakers for near-field listening. They sit on my desk and are powered by a 40-watt integrated amp, through which I play CDs, video and my Mac's audio output. I tried and returned a pair of PSB Imagine Minis because their high-end was rolled off too much. The Martin Logans are perfect. Their folded ribbon tweeters provide perfect clarity without being harsh, and there's never a trace of sibilance. They deliver an open, airy sound that imparts a wonderful sense of spaciousness to music, much like Martin Logan's far more expensive electrostatic speakers. The bass is surprisingly solid, too, given the size of these speakers, with no trace of boominess or mid-range honk. The price may seem a bit steep, but these speakers are worth every penny.
