Great oddball speaker from Martin Logan

David S., Newegg
20 August 2012
  • Summary: Speakers need a beefy amplifier, or a receiver that outputs high current. Efficiency is about average. I can see why they didn't sell so quickly at full retail because this size, price-point, and type of speaker (bass reflex) is unusual for ML; I guess they were perceived as kind of an odd ball...
  • Pros: Very clear and detailed highs and mids. Lows are respectable for a speaker of this size/volume. The speakers are well built and surprisingly solid and hefty for their diminutive size. The push-in cable receptacles are very convenient and their buttons are generously shaped. At about 850-1000/pair...
  • Cons: I should have bought more than two units! Now they're gone! :(

  • Pros: Attaching the MLT-2 with the Motion 10 just makes the system turn into a powerhouse at the price range. Nothing will compete with it if you can get it all for $500. The mid/highs are out of this world when you play classical music. Don't expect much bass, these are catered to people who aren't ba...
  • Cons: For $100-$120 each, there's nothing that can beat it.

Great speakers for great price!

Sandra K., Newegg
7 August 2012
  • Summary: Added 10" sub for fuller sound and proper bass. If they would be bi-wire-able, then with a sub-woofer all frequencies would be covered much better.
  • Pros: Great packing. Quick delivery. Good quality. Decent sound. Sounds a lot better than they look, but on other hand, they do look good. And they will sound better after break in period.
  • Cons: Not bi-amp-able, bi wire-able. Folded ribbon tweeter deserves separate wiring.

Amazing value !!!

Maksym F., Newegg
7 August 2012
  • Summary: At first there were no lows, but after 20-30 hours of use they started to open up. Do use the spikes for a tighter bass. Disregard the specs, the bass is there , just feed them with decent amplification and burn them in properly.
  • Pros: Nothing.... NOTHING in double the price range can touch these Logans. Very musical. The clarity is amazing for a speaker in this price category. At 120 a piece we are robbing Newegg.
  • Cons: What cons ?

Unbeatable !

Maksym F., Newegg
7 August 2012
  • Pros: People, who expect a speaker to perform flawlessly straight out of the box are... well, not very bright. It IS a great speaker , just give it some time and it will shine. 50 hours should do it. The sound will change drastically. Nice finish, looks and feels expensive. The feet, however, could be ...
  • Cons: Not bi-ampable.

Best Deal On Speakers Ever

Michael C., Newegg
16 July 2012
  • Pros: These arrived about 3 weeks ago, ordered on a Monday and had them in house hooked up by Wednesday night. Let them break in for a few days by playing a test file from my computer to DAC to Amp. Now playing SACD, DVD-A, Blu-Ray, and Vinyl through them, and for the price and brand (That's the key he...
  • Cons: Nothing too bad, the plastic bottom are lame, but why pay an extra $200 to have wood legs? The rest of the cabinet is nice wood. You need a sub with them. That's not really a con, because most speakers nowadays you do need a subwoofer.

Good deal!!!

ric p., Newegg
13 July 2012
  • Pros: I'm happy overall. I like the looks of it. They look better in person. The height is perfect, not as tall as my Polk monitor 70. I played all type of music and BR movies with 2 channel setup and they sound great. Everyone are right about the clarity of the sound. It has some good bass to it also....
  • Cons: Nothing so far. I love them.

Can't Be Beat!

Thomas T., Newegg
8 July 2012
  • Summary: If you want exceptional loudspeakers and can't afford audiophile prices, get a pair of these before they're gone. I can't stress enough on how good they sound. Smooth, detailed highs, natural mids, and surprising bass..
  • Pros: I already own a pair of these fine loudspeakers that I absolutely love. I wanted to purchase a matching center channel speaker to go along with these but didn't want to pay the high price tag. That's why I came here to purchase one more Motion 10 speaker. These not only sound great in stereo but ...
  • Cons: None!

Amazing Speakers for Amazing Price!

Sunny S., Newegg
2 July 2012
  • Summary: Dont kid yourself, these are not full range speakers, you NEED A SUBWOOFER. Pairing these speakers with a good subwoofer (configured correctly) will blow your mind. I bought these for the amazingly clear sound reproduction knowing fully well that the bass would be virtually non existent..
  • Pros: Amazing price for amazing speakers, such clear precise sound you will think you are in the movie. I've been listening to surround sound for about 5 years now and when i hooked these things up, there was a night and day difference! You will find yourself looking around for a car honking outside yo...
  • Cons: They are not impressive looking, cheap plastic stand. Very small for floor speakers. Not much bass. power hungry.

Limited functionality

Wesley W., Newegg
26 June 2012
  • Summary: The excellent quality of the highs and the average quality of the mids make the frequency range sound out of balance. It really needs reinforcement in the ~250hz - ~1khz range. A subwoofer won't reinforce this range.
  • Pros: Excellent clarity and detail in the high range.
  • Cons: Quality of midrange doesn't match quality of highrange. Very narrow sound direction.
