Martin Logan Expression ESL 13A 19500 pair
The replacement for the Summit X, the Expression ESL 13A combines the purity of an electrostatic transducer with controllable (EQ) bass. Both the panels and the bass cabinet have been enlarged.
The
ESL 13A features Martin Logan’s new Ulra-Rigid AirFrame Blade Design, precision manufactured from an aerospace-grade extruded aluminum alloy. New as well is what ML calls PoweredForce Forward Bass Technology. This combines two Martin Logan audio innovations: PoweredForce, which allows small enclosures to accurately reproduce massive amounts of bass, and ForceForward, which significantly reduces performance-robbing front-wall bass. New also is the powerful dual 300-Watt Class-D amplification with 24-Bit Vojtko DSP engine. Add ARC (Anthem Room Correction) and the ESL 13A will sound terrific in any room.

Martin Logan Renaissance ESL 15A 32499 pair
The next generation of electrostatic loudspeakers debuts with the Renaissance ESL 15A. Integrating Martin Logan’s award-winning 15 inch wide Curvilinear Line Source XStat electrostatic transducer with a robust woofer section, the Renaissance simply must be heard. And seen! The speakers are close to six feet tall. But make no mistake not only is the sound gorgeous (and big) so are the units, which are available in eleven finishes. The woofer section, two 12” speakers in each unit, are powered by new dual 500 watt (total 1000 watt each speaker) Class D amplifiers and are controlled by a 24 bit Vojtko DSP Engine and ARC (Anthem Room Correction). Martin Logan says the one thing they can’t account for is your listening space. ARC measures low frequency sound output in your room and compares it to optimal response curves that account for spatial anomalies. The algorithms of ARC remove the anomalies leaving realistic natural sounding bass in your room. Add the legendary realism of Martin Logan’s ESL and you understand why the Renaissance ESL 15 A is the only other speaker in Martin Logan’s Masterpiece series.

BalancedForce 212 4999     BalancedForce 210 3799
Conventional wisdom has it that you can never successfully marry a subwoofer to an electrostatic as the subwoofer often provides a stronger bass than desired and in so doing gives a resulting sound that is disconnected. Martin Logan set out to develop a subwoofer that would blend seamlessly to ultra fast electrostatics (or cone speakers). The result is the BalancedForce series of subwoofers. Add ‘inch’ to the 12 and 10 and you get the primary difference between the two. Each features opposing aluminum element woofers, 180 degrees apart, balanced. As they operate in exact opposition distortion causing cabinet vibrations are nullified. Both have 850 watt Class D amplifiers, the 210 has one the 212 two. Various finishes are available but looking at the above the black rectangle is actually the cover for the top mounted controls. Finally! No more standing on your head fiddling with controls that are on the back and the bottom. Sealed cabinets, no porting. Add multiple input options and you have just some of the many features of these new wonderful subwoofers.
