Lawrence, Kansas – September 14, 2018 – MartinLogan is proud to announce they will be demonstrating two Masterpiece Series loudspeakers at the 15th annual Rocky Mountain Audio Fest (RMAF), which runs from October 5 to 7, 2018. RMAF is the largest consumer audio and home entertainment show in the United States, featuring 160 exhibit spaces representing more than 400 companies. Located in the Denver Marriott Tech Center in Denver, Colorado, RMAF attendees will be able to hear live demonstrations of MartinLogan’s Neolith and Impression ESL 11A speakers.
The MartinLogan Neolith is the culmination of over 30 years of MartinLogan passion, engineering innovation, and dedication to the ultimate truth in sound. Winner of Product of the Year awards from The Absolute Sound, TONEAudio, Everything Audio Network, and other prestigious audio/video publications, Neolith is one of the most captivating loudspeakers ever brought to market. Neolith features one of MartinLogan’s largest electrostatic radiating surfaces, 35 percent larger than the legendary Statement E2 electrostatic loudspeaker. Neolith also features two substantial woofers. The front-firing 12-inch mid-bass woofer boasts an extremely low moving mass relative to its size. On the back of the Neolith is a 15-inch bass woofer playing beneath 60Hz. Neolith’s exclusive advanced-topology Vojtko™ Crossover uses hand-selected components for optimum power handling.
MartinLogan will be demonstrating the Neolith ($79,995/pair US MSRP) powered using a Dan D’Agostino Master Audio Systems Progression Premplifier with optional DAC module and Progression Mono Amplifiers. Power management will be provided by Stromtank Power Sources. Cabling, provided by Transparent Audio, will include speaker, interconnect, and power cables from their Reference Line. The audio equipment will be housed in a rack provided by HRS (Harmonic Resolution Systems). In addition to Bill McKiegan from Dan D’Agostino Master Audio Systems, MartinLogan sales manager Peter Soderberg will be on hand providing demonstrations and answering questions.
The MartinLogan Impression ESL 11A features a 44 x 11-inch XStat™ CLS™ electrostatic transducers with advanced microperf stator technology, ultra-rigid AirFrame™ Blade construction, and dual 8-inch low-distortion aluminum cone woofers in a PoweredForce Forward™ configuration powered by dual 275 Watt Class-D amplifiers and controlled by a 24-Bit Vojtko™ DSP Engine with ARC™ (Anthem Room Correction).
Benchmark Media Systems will be using the MartinLogan Impression ESL 11A ($9,995/pair US MSRP) to demonstrate their DAC3L digital-to-analog converter ($1,895), HPA4 line amplifier/preamplifier ($2,995), and AHB2 reference power amplifier ($2,995) in a monoblock configuration.
Music will be provided using an Aurender N100H high-resolution network streamer. Cabling throughout the system includes Benchmark speaker and interconnect cables. In addition to Rory Rall from Benchmark, MartinLogan sales manager Dennis Chern will be on hand providing demonstrations and answering questions.
