Motion LX16 Customer Review
by Jason W., 3 years ago
I did my due diligence on this purchase and was fortunate to locate a pair of factory refurbished LX16's that were sold to me through Audio Advisor.
I am happy to say the speakers arrived without a single flaw that I could see.
Today is day 1 with the speakers in my system...(IMac -Audirvana- Peachtree Idecco...LX16's with Polk subwoofer) and I can only describe what I am hearing as "astounding". I am not an audiophile in terms of understanding how all the components work together to achieve their sound signature, but I can say that these speakers are a marked improvement over the onws they are replacing....Polk RTi A1 bookshelves.
The sound is much more dynamic and crisp. I assume the Folded Motion tweeter is to thank for that. The sound is cleaner and much less "muddy" than the Polk's....I was happy with the Polk''s, but there was just something I could not put my finger on that seemed to be holding them back....now I know what it was...upper frequency accuracy. The LX16's have plenty of detail packed in the upper frequencies that just creates a more pleasing listening experience. Vocals just seem to leap out at you.
My title is "Ear Candy", but it should have "Eye Candy" as a subtitle because these things are absolutely beautiful! The magnetic grill is a nice touch and the gloss black finish just screams high end.
I could not be happier with this purchase and look forward to seeing how the sound improves with age, this being only day 1.
Thanks Martin Logan for creating a superior product!
