The ElectroMotion series are Martin Logan’s most affordable electrostatic speakers. If you have always wonder how Martin Logan’s electrostatic speakers will sound in your room, this is one way to do it very affordably. The previous owner took this route and eventually ended up with the much bigger and more expensive Expression 13A speakers that he bought from us. The sound dispersion, clarity, impressive punch (from a 8″ woofer) has been touted as the best sounding, budget audiophile speakers. Sharing the same CLS XSTAT electrostatic transducers as its higher end Expression range but in a “smaller” package – 34″ x 8 5/8″, the EM ESL speakers will work wonders in the small to medium size room. Soundstage was expansive with great depth and presence. Each speaker has a front firing 8″ woofer with a frequency range of 42 Hz to 22 kHz. Sensitivity is 91 dB and impedance is 8 ohms. Speaker stands 53 1/8″ tall, 9 5/16″ wide and 16 1/2″ deep. It won’t take up a lot of square footage in your listening room but it would love to have at least 18″ from the side wall and 24″ from the rear wall to allow tit to “breathe” the soundstage into the room.
Speakers look really nice with minor scuff marks from use but nothing major. We don’t have the original boxes so local pickup from our store preferred.
