Dynamo 700w Customer Reviews
by Frank P., 11 months ago
I recently purchased a Yamaha YSP-5600 soundbar to replace a 5.1 speaker system to make better use of the space we have. I then decided I might as well upgrade my subwoofer and was looking for something with a small footprint and that was also wireless.
After reading reviews and looking at different brands I decided on the Martin Logan Dynamo 700w. I was not familiar with their products but decided to go ahead with the purchase. After the initial shock of how small the sub was, I did not think that this was such a good idea. Wrong! This puts my old much larger ported sub to shame. The bass is tight and sounds great!

I bought the Dynamo 700W just under a year ago, and it has really paired well with my setup. The bass is very precise, and clear. For music, I could not have asked for a better sub (I listen to a lot of Jazz). For movies, it has been more then enough. Obviously there are much louder subs on the market, and subs that will reach a lower frequency, but the "quality" of the bass this sub provides is tremendous. I will be adding a second 700w to my setup as soon as my wife allows.

It's one thing to design build and offer a quality product and quite another to stand by your products. A glitch in the wireless transmitter was replaced within 3 days of my initial call into service. Now that's service!

The Dynamo 700w replaces a 15 year old Infinity SSW-10 subwoofer and completes my all-Martin Logan 5.1 channel home theater system (front Requests, center Cinema I and Surround Vignettes)
Whether played in 5.1 or 2.1 mode, the bass and low level music is so much clearer and distinct now and I've had it only for 3 days and its not even broken in!!!
Even in low volume you could hear the bass.
And the Infinity is a servo subwoofer and is even larger than the Dynamo!
Martin Logan speakers are really incredible!!! Everyone who listens to my ML speakers always say they are so clear and the music is like floating in the air!!!
I can't believe the Dynamo is making such a big difference.
Thanks ML for making such great products!!!

Superb quality & finish, Top notch components and interface. This unit was integrated into HiFi using a Yamaha RX-A Series AV Receiver. After break-in and crossover tuning the soundscape is very smooth, with low-end frequencies revealing aural and physical effects previously unheard in the system. I will soon order the Motion 6 centre and 2 series surrounds to create a 5.1 system.

Well I have to say it looks good and feels good.
My wireless set up was free it was included with my 1000, need I say you have to Pay For It with other Models “DEF TECH SUPER CUBE” and others but the Martin Logan Dynamo 1000 and my 700 do the BEST!

Excellent compact subwoofer "particularly for music", very responsive & precise (not boomy). Wireless option
is a plus.

This tiny subs are awesome I bought two of them running them in stereo for music and theater. The bass is incredible. You can't tell the bass is coming from the subs, is like the front speakers morph with the subwoofers and give out one sound. Very musical and tight and accurate and loud too.

Just unpacked my new surround system -- B&W M1 ( minitheather ) satelites and ML Dynamo 700 with wireless transmitter.

I have the ML CLS IIZ's and have had to deal with my Velodine's 18 sub to add just the little bump on the lower extension.
In doing so, I have always had slow lumbering, bloated, muddy base and an audible 60 cycle hum that the support staff at Velodyne told me is within spec. for the 3,000 watt class D amp and nothing could be done to fix the problem.
I'm am only telling this story not to slam Velodyne, but to show praise for Martin Logan.
Yesterday, I auditioned a stereo pair of the Dynamo 500 subs in my sound room and found them to be quite a speaker for the money. Very nice sound shaping of the lower register. One problem was I still wasn't getting quite the low bass extension that I was looking for and the rear sound ports seamed to be a little bloated sounding. (Very little) In short I still need the Velodyne's help since it goes down to 18 hz.
Today, I have just upgrade to the ML Dynamo 700's and I must say... "My quest has come to completion".
Very tight, fast, base and not a sound of buzz or hum in the units. (Note: I even have them firing forward) Just beautiful black-black rich base. Great sound shape and low register extension. Finally I can retire the 18" buzzing mud maker.
Thank you to ML and your design team. I can only imagine the work that went into pulling this small wonder off.
My short term plan is to now stack 4 of these on each side of my CLS IIz's and create a vertical bank of bass for the left and right side. (Something like your Statement speaker) I just have to work out a coupling rack so that they can be spaced, braced and angled for point sourced direction without damaging the beautiful cabinet.
Just one small concern/problem on the 700's.
Do you have a recommendation on the supplied spikes. They are way to sloppy for good floor coupling the way that they slide into the rubber foot. Is there an alternate solution that I can go with? Maybe a longer spike to replace the supplied "L" foot and rubber foot pad all together.
Once again... Thanks for the ride. I am revisiting my whole music library and I can enjoy that lower mid bass in the music.

I had a Dynamo 700 that went bad after a couple of months and I want to let you know that Martin Logan stands behind its product. I contacted ML and without hesitation they gave me several options on how I wanted to take care of the replacement. I decided to send them the sub directly, I had a new Sub within a few days and was back listening to great music and watching movies with a powerful thump! Thanks ML for your professional service and courtesy.

I am very impressed with this sub. I replaced a 12in sub with the Dynamo 700. I was amazed how much more this sub out preforms the old one.
