Martin Logan

Reserve ESL Series

The MartinLogan Reserve Series consists of the world's finest electrostatic speakers paired with an ultimate audiophile retail experience. Whether you're searching for an emotionally compelling musical experience or a mind-blowing home theater, the MartinLogan Reserve Series will elevate your senses.


Experience Truth in Sound Reproduction

CLX represents the culmination of everything we have learned about electrostatic technology since we brought our first product to market in 1983. Purity of sound permeates your entire room and satisfies even the most critical ear. The industry benchmark for resolving detail, CLX utilizes dual electrostatic transducers to render the most complex musical passages as faithfully as a crystal prism disperses the full color spectrum. This is the limitless spectrum of the CLX - the absolute truth in musical reproduction.

57-Inch CLS™ XStat™ Electrostatic Transducer

MartinLogan's award winning Curvilinear Line Source (CLS) XStat electrostatic (ESL) technology allows smooth unencumbered dispersion of sound throughout the listening area. The result? Perfectly etched imaging and focus achieved through minimal room interaction; optimum natural reproduction of sound with full level response from ultra-linear transducers; reliable operation in open air; compatibility with all electronics; and seamless dispersion of precise sound throughout your listening environment.

Advanced MicroPerf stator technology gives MartinLogan's latest-generation CLS electrostatic transducer almost twice as much exposed diaphragm surface as a traditional electrostatic panel of the same size. This dramatic increase in effective radiating area translates to higher efficiency and an even more effortless, unlimited dynamic presentation. The XStat pulls no punches!

But there's more to it than just putting more holes in the stators. ClearSpar™ spacers stiffen the assembly further across its width. ClearSpars enable precise, consistent tensioning of the Vacuum Bonded diaphragm without obstructing the floating, see-through look that is the visual hallmark of MartinLogan electrostats.

In the end, a speaker cannot outperform the signal feeding it. MartinLogan's state-of-the-art toroidal transformer and electrical interface engineering ensure an absolutely transparent link from amplifier to electrostatic panel. The result is sound of unparalleled purity, precision, clarity, and openness — the next best thing to no speaker at all.

Curvilinear Line Source Electrostatic Panel

One of MartinLogan's original breakthroughs, CLS technology has been an essential ingredient of every electrostatic loudspeaker we've produced. Proprietary manufacturing methods enable construction of electrostatic panels as cylindrical sections. Their gentle horizontal curvature solves the problem of obtaining good high-frequency dispersion from a large radiating surface without compromising overall sound quality or reliability.

57-Inch DualForce™ Double Diaphragm, Triple Stator Low-Frequency Electrostatic Transducer With Dipole Phase Stabilization

CLX's unique DualForce double diaphragm, triple stator dipole low-frequency electrostatic transducer delivers deep, dynamic bass with twice as much force as a standard ESL. Additionally, CLX's low-frequency dipole stabilization technology reduces low frequency rear wave cancellation inherent to dipole transducers. This is accomplished by increasing the air path length behind the CLX and delaying the out-of-phase back wave. The resulting decrease in low-frequency front-wave cancellation increases overall output while minimizing total harmonic distortion at low frequencies.

The components of each XStat panel — two insulated, high-purity carbon steel stators, plasma-deposited PET diaphragm, and ClearSpar spacers — are fused into a cylindrical-section geometry with an aerospace adhesive whose hold strength exceeds that of welding. Our proprietary Vacuum Bonding process ensures uniform diaphragm tensioning and facilitates the extremely tight tolerances necessary for construction of such a precision transducer.

MicroPerf Stators

Although stators are the elements of an electrostatic driver that are supposed to stand still, they carry the audio signals that do the work of propelling the diaphragm back and forth to move air and produce sound. Because the stators sandwich the diaphragm between them, they must be perforated to allow sound to pass through. Yet they must also be rigid enough to remain absolutely stationary despite the strong electrostatic forces pushing and pulling at them during operation.

MartinLogan's MicroPerf design optimizes this tradeoff by reducing the size of the individual holes and using many more of them than in a traditional electrostatic panel. MicroPerf almost doubles effective diaphragm radiating area without compromising structural integrity. The resulting increase in output capability and efficiency allows a panel to be made much smaller without sacrificing performance — or to enjoy a substantial leap in bandwidth and dynamics without growing larger.

Hand-Rubbed Real-Wood

CLX art now comes standard with a gently curved Art Frame and will be available in 4 standard hand-rubbed, real-wood finishes; black ash, dark cherry, natural cherry and maple. Of course, CLX may be customized with any exotic wood finish* you desire, as well as a myriad of analine dye colors, linear frame and premium high-gloss options.

* Special order exotic wood finishes take additional time to build and deliver, please talk to your local Reserve Dealer for more information.

Vojtko™ Filter Topology

Featuring an advanced proprietary Vojtko filter topology, MartinLogan electronic specialists hand-build each CLX filter utilizing only the finest of components and construction techniques to assure the cleanest, most precise signal path possible. The resulting precision filter flawlessly preserves even the smallest subtleties in sound while effortlessly handling the broadest range of dynamics contained within even the most demanding sonic source, whether used in a 2-channel audio system or dedicated home theater.

Within the interface module, a regulated power supply creates stable bias voltages even under the most extreme conditions. Dual transformer design utilizes a toroidal audio transformer for detailed mid- and high-frequencies, and a high-quality, high-voltage E.I. transformer for dynamic, linear bass. All high-voltage leads are made of the purest copper and coated with silicone. Only superlative materials, including thick film on alumina substrate resistors and polypropylene capacitors, are used throughout.

Custom CLX / Subwoofer Filter

Seamless blending between a subwoofer and full-range loudspeaker is, at the best of times, challengingÑand when you're dealing with a no-holds-barred reference level product such as the CLX there is no room for error. The addition of an optional custom 'CLX filter' to the Descent i and Depth i subwoofers takes the headache out of achieving superb low-frequency performance.

The optional Descent i/Depth i CLX filter board contains an optimized low pass filter that precisely matches the 56Hz low-frequency roll off of the CLX. Once this custom board is installed inside of your subwoofer, setup is only a matter of adjusting the phase and level of your sub. This custom filter is applied only to the left and right inputs of your subwoofer. The sub's LFE input remains unfiltered, which allows surround preamp/processors to send low-frequency information for the center, surround, and LFE channels without compromising the performance of your CLX.

EcoSound and Environmentally Conscious Design

Spectacular bass sound reproduction isn't the only technical breakthrough showing up in the new MartinLogan CLX. This incomparable full range electrostatic loudspeaker is also manufactured from the most beautiful, rigid and earth friendly material available — EcoSound. We chose EcoSound because the CLX design called for an extremely rigid structurally sound frame material. Also given our commitment to the use of earth-friendly manufacturing, we wanted a fully sustainable material as well.

EcoSound is the latest innovation to come from our partnership with Klip BioTechnologies, designers of sustainable manufacturing materials. It is a FSC certified 50/50 blend of renewable bamboo fiber and 100% post consumer recycled wood and/or paper fiber. These are permanently bonded together using water-based resin that is both petroleum and VOC free. Rigorous testing has found the EcoSound material used in the CLX to provide superior internal damping compared to MDF and other more traditional materials. This is a critical to maintaining the CLX's superior sonic clarity and lack of sonic cabinet contributions.

Beautiful, dense, durable, and made from 100% earth friendly materials, EcoSound has a unique natural surface texture with edges like smooth stone. EcoSound's rich black color will not fade from UV exposure over time. Additionally, the CLX's EcoSound surface provides superior scratch resistance and unlike traditional materials, it will not swell due to excessive humidity. It is simple to maintain with an occasional application of finishing oil.

XStat™ Transducer

A unique XStat™ transducer was developed to exclusively address the specific mechanical requirements of the Ethos. Vertically identical in size and dispersion to the flagship Summit™ X (and taller than the Vantage), Ethos' 9.2-inch (23cm) horizontal panel dimension required a tighter curve to achieve MartinLogan's distinct 30-degree dispersion pattern. To accomplish this MartinLogan engineers reduced the gauge thickness of the steel stators. The reduced gauge does not alter the performance characteristics of the Ethos' electrostatic panel. However, as a natural byproduct of tighter build tolerances, it does increase the visual transparency of the panel. Ethos' new XStat panel is so visually transparent that it nearly vanishes when you're sitting and listening.

ElectroMotion ESL

$2,195 per pair (US retail)


Designed for both 2-channel music enthusiasts and those seeking the worlds most articulate and dynamic multi-channel home theater systems, the EM-ESL is the most compelling 'affordable' audiophile-grade speaker ever brought to market.

Priced at $2,195 per pair (US), the ElectroMotion ESL (EM-ESL) represents a brave new direction for electrostatic loudspeaker design. Featuring a full-sized 34-inch tall curvilinear XStat™ electrostatic transducer the new ESL performs more like a mini-flagship than an entry level audiophile speaker. Long time MartinLogan enthusiasts are sure to describe ElectroMotion ESL as the second-coming of the legendary Aerius electrostatic speaker which debuted in 1992 and went on to sell in record numbers. The new ESL, however, boasts 40 percent more radiating surface, a superbly integrated and authoritative bass performance, and a sensitivity rated at 91dB. In addition, the ESL is capable of being effortlessly powered by both receivers and high-end amplifiers alike.

ElectroMotion ESL's XStat electrostatic MicroPerf panel is housed within a radical aluminum and composite AirFrame™ similar to those found on MartinLogan's flagship products. AirFrame technology rigidifies the electrostatic panel without obstructing playable surface area or interfering with ambience enriching dipole sound radiation. At the same time, an AirFrame provides electrical and acoustical isolation, minimizing intermodulated distortion caused by vibration and resonance while enhancing imaging, low-level sonic detail, accuracy, and efficiency. MicroPerf design optimizes the individual holes of The EM-ESL's electrostatic panel. MicroPerf design substantially increases diaphragm radiating area, compared to early generations—without compromising structural integrity. The resulting increase in output capability and efficiency allows The EM-ESL's panel to enjoy a substantial leap in bandwidth and dynamics without growing larger. For example, The EM-ESL's XStat electrostatic panel features 129 square inches of sound radiating surface on both the front and back and a sensitivity of 91dB into 6 Ohms. The Aerius, well received its day, only had 93 square inches and a sensitivity of 89dB into 4 Ohms.

A unique XStat™ transducer was developed for the ElectroMotion ESL to reduce the gauge thickness of the electrostatic panel's steel stators. The reduced gauge does not alter the performance characteristics of the panel. However, as a natural byproduct of tighter build tolerances, it does increase the visual transparency of the panel. The EM-ESL's new XStat panel is so visually transparent it nearly vanishes when you're sitting and listening.

Compact bookshelf speaker with a Folded Motion™ tweeter. Voice-matched with MartinLogan ESL speakers.

Subwoofers


MartinLogan subwoofers are inherently superior because they are designed to effortlessly match the speed and detail of an electrostatic loudspeaker—the quickest and most detailed transducer in the world. Any 2-channel stereo or multi-channel home theater system will benefit from a richly detailed, high-quality subwoofer.

Descent i

$3,495 each (US retail)


Three 10-inch drivers, leading-edge technology and a unique force-canceling driver configuration yield deep, powerful, yet controlled bass that perfectly complements all speakers.

Ultimate Bass

Building on the groundbreaking technology of the original Descent, the Descent i incorporates new features and enhancements that simplify system integration while improving performance. Its signature three-driver, force-canceling configuration virtually eliminates bass-blurring cabinet resonance. And each rugged, custom-built aluminum-cone driver is servo-locked to its own sophisticated, high-power amplifier. The result is dynamic, unrestrained output to the very lowest frequencies, yet with clarity and definition approaching that of electrostatic transducers.

Depth i

$2,195 each (US retail)


Three 8-inch drivers deliver deep, powerful, yet amazingly detailed bass at price that makes Depth i a best buy among subwoofers.

Deep, Powerful, and Detailed

Packing all of Descent i's innovative technology into a cabinet 40% smaller, Depth i brings deep, powerful bass with electrostatic-like detail to any audio system, whether for high-end stereo music listening or multi-channel home theater. Its three-driver, force-canceling configuration virtually eliminates cabinet resonance and the resulting bass blur that plagues conventional subwoofers, while sophisticated amplifier and triple-servo control technology ensure the purity and accuracy of the sound from the drivers.


Grotto i

$1,495 each (US retail)


The world's most affordable servo-controlled subwoofer, Grotto i proves that a precise, compact subwoofer can have the heart of a beast.

Compact and Accurate

A powerful 300 watt (900 watt peak) low-distortion, high-reliability amplifier gives Grotto i extremely articulate bass without need of exaggerated amplifier power ratings or transient-blurring ported or passive radiator enclosures common to many modern subwoofers. A proprietary servo system further ensures that output from Grotto i's 10-inch high-resolution aluminum cone woofer is dramatically free of distortion and provides a faithful replica of the audio input signal.
