Martin Logan Motion Vision X
Martin Logan Motion Vision X — Introducing the Motion® Vision X with DTS Play-Fi® technology. Play-Fi delivers listeners the freedom and flexibility to stream high-res music wirelessly over your existing Wi-Fi network. Also, Play-Fi is an open platform, so you can mix and match any DTS Play-Fi enabled speaker.
Like the first generation Motion Vision soundbar, Motion Vision X delivers 5-channel surround sound from a sleek and sculptural all-in-one system that's stylish yet unobtrusive, simple to install, and easy to operate. Three advanced-resolution Folded Motion™ tweeters, four 4-inch high-performance woofers, and seven dedicated amplifiers deliver 100 watts of total system power.
The Motion Vision X raises the bar again! Utilizing DTS Play-Fi technology, the Vision X provides listeners the freedom and flexibility to stream their high-resolution music (up to 24- bit/192kHz) wirelessly over an existing Wi-Fi network to any number of connected speakers that utilize DTS Play-Fi technology once paired with the Play-Fi App. Unlike many wireless platforms, DTS Play-Fi is an open platform, meaning listeners are able to mix and match any DTS Play-Fi-enabled audio products from a selection of top audio brands. Listeners can take advantage of endless choices, from their own music libraries to online music streaming services*, and they can stream their music from virtually any device – Android, iOS, Kindle Fire or PC.
The Motion Vision X 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 X 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 X offers simple wired connectivity.
The Motion Vision X also received a cosmetic upgrade from MartinLogan's dedicated in-house design and engineering team—the luscious, high-gloss, piano black sculpture with the visually unobtrusive design remains, but a clear anodized brushed aluminum metal accent was added to the new and improved 5-button on-board navigation panel—better functionality with a welcome modern touch. The new full size extruded black-aluminum remote is an upgrade from the credit card remote included with the previous generation. Also, a new slender wall bracket minimizes visibility when the soundbar is wall-mounted.
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 X 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 X 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 X 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.
Motion Vision X'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 BluRay player remote), the Motion Vision X will listen and learn commands from most remote controls, making integration into your existing system even easier. Best of all, programming the Motion Vision X to respond to your existing remote only takes a minute.

MartinLogan's philosophy has never been one of compromise and the Motion Vision X 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 X sets the new standard for sound bar performance.
