MartinLogan Wireless Ensemble Bravado Loudspeaker

Bravado

Wireless speakers have come a long way from the early days of having to use noisy, interference-prone RF signals. Now, through your home Wi-Fi network, you can easily set up a speaker in any room and stream music to it -- all you need is a wall outlet. MartinLogan’s Bravado is a handsome, good-sounding example of just how far things have come. It’s a well-thought-out, compact marvel suitable for small rooms and ideal for casual listening -- and you can always add another Bravado, for a small, superb-sounding system that will allow you to wirelessly listen to music in true stereo.

MartinLogan Bravado Wireless Speaker Reviewed

Bravado

Maybe this is just me, but typically the more time I spend listening to a given set of speakers, the more fault I'm able to find. I had the opposite experience with the Bravados. With each listening session, I noted a different strength.

Unison: This DTS Play-Fi and AirPlay preamp will stream anything—including your vinyl

Unison

I simply loved the MartinLogan Unison. It lets you convert virtually any analog or digital audio component into a multi-room audio node using your choice of DTS Play-Fi or Apple’s AirPlay. The inclusion of ARC is icing on the cake that enables the gear it’s connected to to deliver the best performance possible from the room that it’s in. The Unison is a no-brainer recommendation.

MartinLogan Cadence Soundbar and Dynamo 700w Subwoofer Review

Cadence

For the vast majority of our readers, I suspect their home theater also doubles as a family room or living room. Just because you have to make some compromises in buying separate components doesn’t mean you have to compromise in sound quality.

MartinLogan Motion Vision X Soundbar Review

Motion Vision X

...the Vision X offers an elevated listening experience that is notably better than what most soundbars can muster... you get what you pay for from MartinLogan. Is it three times better than a $500 model? Yes. Is it twice as good as any $800 soundbar I’ve heard? Yes. High fidelity is what sets the Vision X apart from its competition, and I have never heard another powered soundbar sound so much like a high-quality speaker system. The Vision X is a great choice for a modern living room where a full-sized stereo is not an option but high-quality sound is desired.

MartinLogan Crescendo Wireless Speaker System Review

Crescendo

The Crescendo sure is one superb performing, sexy audio system. You’ll be hard-pressed to get better performance in such a sleek-looking package... Setup is a breeze and it’s tightly integrated in with Apple’s ecosystem. It has input and integration options galore that you simply won’t find in other solutions. Add a wired or wireless subwoofer to the Crescendo and you have an unbelievable full range setup for music and home theater. In fact, when paired with a quality sub, like MartinLogan’s own Dynamo models, you’ll be hard-pressed to find any better sounding all-in-one system... the Crescendo is a superb effort by MartinLogan and deserves an audition if you’re in the market for a wireless speaker system.

Review: MartinLogan Crescendo Wireless Speaker

Crescendo

The Crescendo is a very appealing product... And those who are serous about audio will love the neutrality and overall sound quality of the Crescendo... Definitely a way swankier take on the usual wireless speaker. And it looks really cool, too.

MartinLogan Crescendo Premium Wireless Speaker System Reviewed

Crescendo

...the Crescendo would look right at home in Don Draper's office, with its gorgeous piano gloss or walnut veneer cabinet and its striking mix of curves and angles...The toed-out Folded Motion tweeters go a long way toward creating a wide, spacious sound from such a relatively compact enclosure...I'm going to seriously pout when I have to ship it back to the manufacturer.

Motion Vision X

5-channel wireless surround sound from a sleek and sculptural all-in-one system that's stylish yet unobtrusive, simple to install, and easy to operate.

Martin Logan Can Mix olie and water

It's amazing... It's incredible. Martin Logan has done it again. This time with a sound bar to hang under the TV. Bass control is incredible. The sound is very homogeneous. nice tight bass and detailed top. The mid-range is well defined. In other words, water is mixed with oil, metaphorically speaking.

Martin Logan has created a superstar sound bar.

A week ago I upgraded from the Motion Vision, to the Motion Vision X. I immediately noticed a difference in the sound quality. The mids and highs were more pronounced. My Dynamo 700 subwoofer came to life unlike when connected to the previous model, and sounds 30 to 40% better. (No exaggeration). This new model is Wi-Fi ready and has a Play-Fi app which allows you to stream music from your devices to the sound bar. The new remote control is much larger than the previous one, is made out of metal and has an elegant design. The problems and concerns from the previous model have been addressed on this newest revision. There’s a new feature that allows you to adjust the surround, which helps to more accurately simulate 5.1. The sound from this unit is so robust a subwoofer is not required unless you desire room shaking bass. Martin Logan support provides impeccable service and are very responsive. This sound bar is for people that want accurate, warm and natural sound, with pronounced midrange frequencies. Martin Logan has built a reputation by manufacturing high end audio products with unique designs that appeal to audiophiles and those with a sense of style. If this is what you are looking for in a high end sound bar the Motion Vision X is for you.

Hands down best wireless speaker in its class

This is a great product. Bought it from Crutchfield. First impressions: build quality is outstanding, very stylish and well packed. Remote is of very high quality as well. Hook up was very simple, although instruction booklet was not that helpful. Sound: I was blown away by the quality of the tweeters, really transparent and natural sounding for such a small and cheap speaker. It will outclass B&W and Bang&Olufsen by a mile. Midbass was more of what you would expect from a small speaker, although the single midbass driver seems as a clever solution. Tried different sources, by far the best was the ipod directly connected to the equipment via USB and using lossless files. The wireless Airplay or bluetooth seems to lower the quality. Bottom line: hands down the best small wireless speaker I've heard.
