“The gloss-finished wooden cabinets and metal speaker grilles alone give the outward impression of a more expensive design. And of course, fantastic sonics for their price point reinforce that assessment. Used as a stereo pair, the ML 35XT speakers offer a lot of sound for the dollar.” — Rob Johnson, TONE Audio
“What I look for in a speaker is one that not only makes the full range of music I listen to sound as good as it can, but that also looks good in my home, occupies as little space as the laws of physics allow, and represents supreme value for the money. All of that is offered by the MartinLogan Motion 35XT, in addition to a natural-sounding integration of tight, truthful bass and graceful highs… I believe I’ve found what I’ve been looking for.” — Jeff Stockton, SoundStage! Network
“With the 35XT, MartinLogan has managed to upscale its Motion Series bookshelf speaker offerings. The new speakers play impressively loud and sound clean, with excellent detail, clear mids, and good dynamics. Imaging is about as good as I’ve experienced from bookshelf speakers, and I’ve heard some good ones in my time… its performance made me want to keep listening to music late into the night, which is what good hi-fi is all about — and it’s very much HRAC Approved.” — Al Griffin, Hi Res Audio Central
What makes the Motion Series sound so amazing? MartinLogan’s dedicated in-house engineering team started by utilizing and refining the most advanced, compact technologies and combining them with innovative engineering. The result is an emotionally engaging sound that rivals (and most times trounces) traditional loudspeakers of similar size and price.
Folded Motion® XT Tweeters
The signature Folded Motion tweeters utilize extremely low mass diaphragms that “squeeze” air, and require significantly less excursion than the typical 1-inch 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.
The low distortion Folded Motion XT tweeter boasts a radiating surface 40% larger than those found in the award-winning Motion® Series products. This substantial leap in size increases the bandwidth and efficiency of the high-performance tweeter for effortless performance.
