MartinLogan Ethos Loudspeaker Review

The Ethos is an exceptional speaker and a bargain at its price. This speaker does so much, so well, it’s incredible. It does so much, at such high standards; excellent integration of woofer to panel, seamless and world-class midrange and treble, excellent soundstage and a most articulate, clear, transparent sound while at the same time, being sweet, musical, life-like, and musically engaging. And the tonal balance is also spot-on.

MartinLogan Ethos Loudspeakers Review

…[no competitors] can match the Ethos in purity of the midrange, texture, and insight into the overall performance. The Ethos excelled in providing cues to performer spacing of performers and superb dynamics. Very few other designs can compete with the coherence and transient speed of ESLs.

MartinLogan Ethos Electrostatic Hybrid Loudspeakers

Great looks, advanced engineering, beautiful fabrication by craftspeople in the US, reasonably pricing and musical beguilement — the Ethos shows how MartinLogan’s concerted efforts in introducing novel technologies have paid off in terms of addressing the electrostatic design’s various inherent Achilles’ heels. For starters, the speaker certainly excels at explosive bass crescendos; the ample in-built power and high-quality dynamic drivers (and passive radiators) see to that

MartinLogan Ethos Loudspeakers Review

All in all, the MartinLogan Ethos are a lot more user friendly than many typical floorstanders I have lived with. Freedom from driver and cabinet colorations makes any the considerations above hardly worth noting, and they are on my personal shopping wish list. I found them to be the most capable of music makers. I can’t recommend an audition highly enough. Be warned, however, you'll have a hard time getting out of your mind the virtues ESLs bring to the table. The MartinLogan Ethos is a best buy if there ever was one

MartinLogan Ethos Loudspeakers

The Ethos’s low end took me completely by surprise. For the first couple of months I hadn’t even looked at the speaker’s specifications, and so was unaware that its front-firing woofer was being augmented by a downward-firing passive radiator. Again and again I caught myself looking up at the speakers (I often read while listening to music) when a particularly low and well-defined bass note slammed through my room.

MartinLogan Ethos Hybrid Electrostatic Speakers

I think MartinLogan has a real winner of a speaker in the Ethos. My respect for them grows each and every day. I believe that life is short and you should go all in when you can...Give them a try; you will probably agree with me that they perform far better than speakers costing much, much more.

Martin Logan Ethos loudspeaker review

Martin Logan’s XStat panel in the Ethos is probably the best electrostatic driver I have ever heard, and this alone hoists it way up above most other loudspeakers...It is for those who want obvious and extended deep bass, the dramatic sonic purity of a top quality electrostatic and a standard of design and finish high enough to grace a modern home.

Simply Amazing

I have had my Ethos for about a month now, and for once in my life I am speechless. As they begin to "Break In", I can actually detect specific sounds (vocals, instruments, breathing, etc.) that I swear were never present before. Please trust me when I say, and what I've heard time and time again, but they do make you believe that the band is playing live for you in your very own living room. Yes people, they are that good! To the men here who may need spousal approval to spend the significant amount of cash required for these, I strongly recommend that you take her to your nearest ML dealer and just let her see them; worked for me.

Eureka!

As a very satisfied Martin Logan (ML) owner who used the Aerius/Abyss subwoofer combination for over 20 years, I was very surprised just how much more better the Ethos sounded. I had not got back into the speaker market until I heard the Ethos. At that point I knew it was time to replace my speakers. I listened to a lot of other brand speakers but finally knew that replacing my present ML setup meant buying another ML speaker - the Aerius were still very competitive with many of today's box speakers. After putting the Ethos in my audio/video setup I immediately was aware of how much music I have been missing. The Ethos are magnitudes better than my old setup. The Ethos have exceptionally more clarity of detail, soundstage, body and "oomph". My kudos to Martin Logan for building an superb speaker in the Ethos...back in audio nirvana!

Martin Logan excells again

I recently purchased a pair of Ethos to replace a pair of 20 year old Eosone 1000 speakers. The performance of these Ethos represent a stunning transition to a much higher level of listening enjoyment. The Ethos are well balanced no matter what the choice of music from classical to country rock. Their clarity and presence are a constant enjoyment.

I cannot be happier with their performance and their visual appearance make my wife smile. It just doesn't get any better than that.

A great buy!

These speakers entered our home just days ago to join many other pairs of great speakers from companies like B&W (home studio & office), JBL (guest rooms), James Loudspeaker & Triad (home theater), Cambridge Soundworks (gym), Polk (pool), Genelec (home studio), and others. And they're my first pair of electrostatics. As a musician with a home studio, I always prefer speakers that accurately reflect source material and minimize colorations. And these don't dissapoint.

From Hilary Hahn's violin, to Hiromi's piano, to bands like Rush, through a variety of material, these speakers sound superb and don't fatigue my ears after extended listening (which is unusual). Ethos truly shine on vocals and close miked instruments -- which may sound like they're in the room with you depending on the quality of the recording.

The Ethos now provide all the sound for an approximately 30' by 30' living room area in our home. The stereo field and tonal balance are excellent... which was a serious concern before the speakers were actually hooked up. (Acoustically, it's a difficult room with many reflective surfaces.) And at a dinner party last night... guests were admiring them because of the way they *looked*!

I maintain a large CD collection on a Kaleidescape system... and have spent hours jumping back & forth among a variety of albums & genres. For the price, they're a bargain compared with other monitor quality speakers I've listened to.
