About This Listing

Agile, Fluid, Clear, and Fun: MartinLogan Motion 15 Bookshelf Loudspeakers Play with Attention-Getting Detail and Natural Smoothness, Feature Trickle-Down Technology from Flagship Models

Music lovers, take note: Reviewers and listeners all around the world have raved about how much fun the MartinLogan Motion 15 bookshelf loudspeakers provide for a price as equally satisfying as the sound they produce. The secret weapon to such prowess is a proprietary Folded Motion ribbon tweeter that delivers the speed and accuracy difficult to achieve with a conventional tweeter. It is also able to move more rapidly and effectively than a typical dome or cone. As such, Motion 15's wide dispersion capability and resultant immersive soundstaging fills spaces all the while avoiding the room reflections that often impact performance. 

Standing at just over 11 inches tall, Motion 15's small 6.8 x 9.5-inch footprint belies its ability to command immediate attention. The effortless grace with which it renders subtle high-frequency detail and foot-tapping midrange information will immediately catch your ear. Another reason for its well-balanced, natural presentation across the frequency spectrum relates to how well the ribbon tweeter integrates with the accompanying 5.25-inch aluminum cone driver. Housed in a non-resonant, asymmetric chamber, the driver, with an extremely rigid dust cap, drastically reduces cone break-up modes. 

Further armed with an impressive 92dB efficiency rating, Motion 15 arrives fully compatible with four- and eight-ohm amplifiers rated between 20 and 200Wpc. Custom air-core coil and low DCR steel laminate inductors, polypropylene film capacitors, and low DF electrolytic capacitors found in MartinLogan's flagship models are here too. And whether you're system is driven by audiophile-grade tubes or a beefy solid-state home-theater behemoth, these speakers will have no trouble keeping pace. Finally, when you consider Motion 15 comes with MartinLogan's five-year warranty and our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee, only one question springs to mind: What are you waiting for? 

"Agile, communicative, competent, and complete, what's not to like? There's a few exciting new compact monitors appearing at present; MartinLogan's Motion 15 could just be the surprise package that upsets the applecart. Buy, enjoy, and even if you upgrade later, keep them for that rainy day; they're guaranteed to put a smile on your face."

– Roy Gregory, Hi-Fi+ 

"These are seriously agile speakers. They're swift and light-footed enough to keep up with the most cluttered, rhythmically awkward tracks we could think of, and articulate enough to make sense of them.... Factor in the impressive levels of clarity and fluidity, and you get an accomplished performance that feels naturally energetic."

– What Hi-Fi?
