MartinLogan Motion 262 Home Theater Speaker System Review

"Truth be told, the system performs so well in so many respects that I find myself expecting too much of it at times, comparing the speakers to those costing two, three, five times as much. The slight relative throatiness of Motion 6 sticks with me in a way it definitely shouldn't for a system at this price point, because for the most part, the Motion Series speakers simply don't sound like speakers at this price point. Their clarity is exceptional, their ability to disappear into a room (sonically speaking) is uncanny, and their value is unrivaled. "

MartinLogan Motion 4i and 8i Speakers

"If you’re not familiar with the original Motion Series speakers, their performance can best be summed up in two words: “detailed” and “dynamic.” Much like the originals, the amount of sound coming out of these little cabinets is a bit startling. "

MartinLogan Motion 20 Loudspeakers

"MartinLogan’s Motion 20 is a compelling option for anyone shopping for speakers in the range of $1500 to $2000/pair. It conveys music in a detailed manner, with pinpoint imaging and surprisingly powerful bass for its size. And while I generally preferred GoldenEar Technology’s more expensive Triton Five for classical music, the Motion 20 was in some ways the more versatile speaker -- and better equipped to rock out. If you want dynamic, extended sound from a compact floorstander, the MartinLogan Motion 20 can deliver it."

blends in well
It has a quality styling that's subtle while eye-catching at that same time. It's good that it doesn't have the logo blasted all over the front like some other center channel speakers.

Motion 6 and EF's
About a month ago I bought a Motion 6 to replace and old Yamaha center channel. I liked the improvement in clarity so much when I saw the Encore EF's on sale I bought 2 to use as my right and left main speakers. The sound improvement was dramatic. This is a relatively inexpensive way to achieve really nice sound. I'm driving the speakers with a Pioneer VSX 1017 THX receiver.
