Summary: I had a Boston center before the Motif. Wow, what a big difference! The clarity is outstanding. You hear things you didn't hear before. I have it paired with Martin Logan Montage as my main speakers. Wether watching tv or listening to music, the sound is breathtaking. All three speakers work well with each other, without being overbearing. Well worth the money. I got the Motif on sale. You won't be disappointed!
Summary: MartinLogan makes quality products. This center channel Motif mixes with their other speakers seamlessly. It comes well protected in the shipping container, and is easy to set up. Highly recommended.
Summary: I hesitated to purchase this speaker, it was a lot of money for a center channel speaker. I happened upon a great one day sale of the unit so I went for it. I have not been disappointed. I upgraded from using a Martin Logan Vignette as the center and this has been a huge step up in quality and clarity. Some key points: -If your hesitant on this speaker, examine which speaker you will get the most use out of based on what movies you like.
Summary: I don't quite have the 80 hours of break in time on it yet but I have to say the clarity in voices and realism is pretty impressive. I have Electro Static Vistas for my Mains, a Depth I sub and the Motif pairs very well. I really wanted the New Static X but settled for the Motif and am glad I did and saved a bunch of money. You cant expect much Bass from this speaker and is what a sub is for.
