MartinLogan Adds Motion® AFX Dolby Atmos Enabled Speaker to their Extensive Line-Up of Home Theater Speakers
MartinLogan Motion AFX will offer MartinLogan customers a completely new sonic entertainment experience
Lawrence, KS – CEDIA EXPO 2015 – October 15th – 17th – Booth #SR-2 – MartinLogan, the world’s leader in loudspeaker and Folded Motion™ technology, proudly announces the Motion AFX, the newest speaker from MartinLogan’s award-winning Motion Series, designed to deliver moving audio with Dolby Atmos®.
Dolby Atmos delivers captivating sound that places and moves audio anywhere in the room, including overhead, to bring entertainment alive all around the audience. Whether you are listening to music, movies, television shows, or playing your favorite video games, Dolby Atmos delivers the full impact of the entertainment experience.
MartinLogan Motion AFX Dolby Atmos enabled speakers are designed to create a height layer of sound above the listener that better connects viewers with the richness, detail and clarity of the on screen experience. The Motion AFX is designed to sit on top of floorstanding and bookshelf speakers in MartinLogan’s Motion series. These models include the Motion 15, 20, 35XT, 40 and 60XT. Designed to reflect sound off of the ceiling in a Dolby Atmos entertainment system, The AFX will also work with other brands of speakers with a flat top. For systems where a speaker-top mounting is not possible, other installation options are available.
Each Motion AFX speaker features a 0.75-inch aluminum dome tweeter and 5.25” polypropylene cone bass/midrange driver with stamped steel basket, all incorporated into a beautiful High Gloss Black cabinet. The shape of the Motion AFX cabinet is specifically designed to angle the drivers towards the ceiling in order to accurately deliver a Dolby Atmos sound experience above the listeners.
In systems where overhead speakers are a possibility, MartinLogan also offers a range of architectural in-ceiling speakers (including the Vanquish), that can employed in a Home Theater system designed to support Dolby Atmos playback.
The Motion AFX speakers are estimated to be $599.95/pr USD and will begin shipping worldwide November 2015.
