MartinLogan, the world's leader in electrostatic and Folded Motion™ loudspeaker technology, proudly announces the new Motion Vision sound bar. The newest addition to MartinLogan's award winning Motion Series has three advanced-resolution Folded Motion tweeters, four 4-inch high-performance woofers, and seven dedicated amplifiers deliver 100 watts of total system power.
MartinLogan has 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. 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.
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.
Installation couldn't be easier thanks to built-in amplification paired with 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. The Motion Vision also 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 Motion Vision sound bar is shipping now with an MSRP of $1,499.95 per system.

Reason #56 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I am most interested in the formats (audio) of DVDs. I buy a DVD, and then it is re-introduced in a deluxe package some time later. I am not that interested in the extras, but the DVD is invariably upgraded in sound. This is usually DTS ES surround but in some cases DTS ES 6.1 (discrete). Most reviews (Home Theater, Stereophile Guide To Home Theater, Sound And Vision) do not address this situation. I am subscribing to Widescreen Review, hopefully, to solve this problem. I am looking forward to my first issue and a long relationship with your magazine.Tom Smith
