Looking for an audio system that can improve your TV's sound, and maybe serve up some music that's easy on the ears, too? MartinLogan's carefully engineered and solidly built Motion Vision sound bar may be all you want or need. The design goal was clearly audio performance here, rather than bells and whistles: it sports a total of seven drivers, each powered by its own independent amplifier. Built-in Dolby® Digital and DTS® decoding combine with simulated surround processing to deliver engaging sound with video sources like Blu-ray movies or shows you tune in on your cable or satellite box. This slim, wall-mountable speaker turned some heads at Crutchfield headquarters when we auditioned it in our large and acoustically challenging training room. Even with no subwoofer playing, it produced full, rich, detailed sound with surprising bass punch.
Mount the Motion Vision on the wall under your TV or place it on your A/V cabinet.
Folded Motion™ tweeters for open, dynamic, and detailed sound
MartinLogan went the extra mile to make sure this sound bar can do justice to your favorite music as well as TV sources. Three high-resolution Folded Motion tweeters re-create high frequencies that are precise, immediate, and effortless, using a thin-film technology that's inherently different from more common dome or cone tweeters. Their pleated diaphragms work similarly to an accordion by "squeezing" air to create sound, and their larger surface area also provides wide, yet controlled sound dispersion for a realistic, accurate soundstage.
Four long-throw woofers round out the system, delivering clear mids and rich bass. The Motion Vision really impressed us with just how much low-frequency power it was able to produce, all by itself, without a subwoofer.
Adding even more bass
But if you want to add even more bass impact, MartinLogan has made it easy to do. This sound bar has built-in wireless audio technology, so you can add a matching wireless MartinLogan subwoofer like the Dynamo™ 700W or 1000W. Or if you already own a more traditional powered subwoofer, the Motion Vision's dedicated subwoofer output lets you make a wired connection with a regular subwoofer cable.
