Sculptural Aesthetics with Dominating Sonic Performance
The Motion Vision was engineered with a commanding bass performance paired with precisely etched mid- and high-frequencies, creating a vivid, three-dimensional soundstage. Advanced digital signal processing (DSP) technology and industry leading surround sound decoding allow MartinLogan to replace five separate home theater speakers with a one piece solution that reproduces multi-channel recordings with unflinching accuracy, resolution and detail—the inspiration behind every MartinLogan design.
Motion Vision delivers front left/right and center channels via dedicated Folded Motion tweeters and high-performance woofers and simulates rear left/right effects channels to create fully immersive, five-channel surround sound throughout the listening environment.
Dual rear-firing bass ports reinforce the bass extension for astonishingly deep bass and can be adjusted plus or minus 10dB to custom tailor bass performance. For bass aficionados who desire the deepest bass experience, the built-in SWT-2 transmitter allows, at the touch of a button, the addition of a compatible wireless MartinLogan subwoofer. For those who desire a non-wireless subwoofer, Motion Vision offers simple wired connectivity.
MartinLogan`s dedicated in-house design and engineering team crafted the Motion Vision to look as spectacular as it sounds—focusing on creating a luscious, high-gloss, piano black sculpture with a visually unobtrusive design. The dimmable LED display is hidden behind the front grille cloth and can be set to automatically vanish during operation. Brushed aluminum accents on the top control panel add a touch of elegance and style to an already stunning piece of acoustic artistry.
Folded Motion" Tweeters
Folded Motion Tweeters works by moving air (which creates sound) perpendicular to the folded ridges of the diaphragm, similar to how an accordion works. This extremely low mass diaphragm "squeezes" air and requires almost 90% less excursion than the typical 1" dome tweeter, which drastically minimizes distortion while providing a lightning fast response time. The increased surface area also provides a wide, yet controlled sound dispersion to create a realistic and carefully etched sound stage.
Hooking up a 5-channel surround sound system can be daunting for anyone. Speaker placement, wire routing, amplifier selection, and component connections add to the confusion and frustration. Motion Vision offers a solution that takes the headache out of the equation by integrating all of the components necessary for an immersive surround speaker system into a single package.
The Motion Vision installs quickly and easily on a wall with the included mounting bracket, or it can be placed on a shelf for an elegantly simple installation. We`ve included a setting that optimizes sound for either scenario, ensuring you`ll get the best sound regardless of location.
The rear panel on the Motion Vision has digital optical, digital coaxial, and analog stereo inputs that allow effortless hook-up of Blu-ray/DVD/CD players, gaming consoles, satellite receivers, and other external sources. Just plug them in and you`re ready within minutes to rediscover your favorite music and movies.
Simple to Control
Motion Vision`s simple remote turns the system on or off, adjusts volume, switches inputs, and adjusts three discrete acoustic modes. Normal Mode preserves the intent of the original recording. Bass+ Mode increases bass output for extra impact. Night Mode is a relationship-saver for the bass averse neighbor. The top-mounted control pad allows full access to the menu system and volume should you misplace your remote.
If you are already fond of your existing remote (like your television or cable box remote), the Motion Vision will listen and learn that remote`s commands, making integration into your existing system even easier. Best of all, programming the Motion Vision to respond to your existing remote only takes a minute.
MartinLogan`s philosophy has never been one of compromise and the Motion Vision is no exception. We`ve thrown down the gauntlet at wimpy, thin-sounding speaker bars by crafting the ultimate single-speaker surround sound system—delivering exceptionally deep yet well-balanced bass, award-winning Folded Motion driver technology, and immersive home theater surround sound in a simple and easy to operate system. The Motion Vision sets the new standard for sound bar performance.
