MartinLogan Unveils Beefed Up Motion XT Speaker Series, Featuring Folded Motion Tweeters

MartinLogan's Motion 60XT has a 1.25-by-2.4-inch Folder Motion XT transducer with a 4.5-by-2.75-inch diaphragm.

MartinLogan is going to the extreme to put the company's Folded Motion tweeters into a new lineup of speakers -- well, sort of. The manufacturer just announced three new additions to the Motion Series: the Motion 60XT floor-standing speaker, the Motion 50XT center channel, and the Motion 35XT bookshelf speaker.

The company calls this new lineup "extreme" -- hence, the XT. By extreme, MartinLogan means that each one should play louder, lower, and with complete accuracy. Each speaker does all of that by using larger cabinets and bigger woofers, both of which are paired with MartinLogan's Folded Motion XT driver.

These new Folder Motion XT tweeters boast a radiating surface that's 40 percent larger than anything inside any of MartinLogan's other Motion speakers. Also worth mentioning is that Motion 60XT packs a dedicated mid-woofer into its lengthy (48-by-11.4-by-14.4 inches), slick enclosure.

Besides a sharp finish, each Motion XT speaker has subtle angled-top cabinets with soft radius corners and the perforated grilles that show it's a MartinLogan. Other features include high-excursion, black aluminum cone woofers with low-turbulence, rear-firing bass ports, as well as five-way bi-wire tool-less binding posts.

With these new additions, the Motion Series now comprises a total of seven speakers. That lineup includes the Motion 20, Motion 40 and Motion 60XT floor-standing speakers, the Motion 15 and Motion 35XT bookshelf speakers, and the Motion 30 and Motion 50XT center channels.

 The Motion 50XT has a frequency response of 50–25,000Hz (±3dB) and a sensitivity rating of 94dB.

MartinLogan has listed the Motion 60XT with a starting price of $2,999.95 per pair, with the Motion 50XT listed at $899.95 each, and the Motion 35XT selling for $1,199.95 per pair. Those prices are for the glossy piano black finish, with a black cherrywood option also available. MartinLogan plans to start shipping each of the new Motion XT models by the end of this month.

 Sold in pairs, the Motion 60XT has a frequency response of 50–25,000Hz (±3dB) and a sensitivity rating of 92dB.

Amazon Echo Plus (Second-Gen) Review

The second-gen Amazon Echo Plus is shorter, louder and better-looking than ever. What's not to like? Here's our review.
Should I Buy The Amazon Echo Plus (2nd-gen)?
The new Echo Plus offers a radical redesign compared to the original, ditching the plastic body for a fabric mesh housing that helps the speaker blend into the home environment. It’s not only better-looking either, as a larger speaker and tweeter provide improved audio quality and Dolby Play 360 audio support helps fills the room with music. What’s not to like?

Google Pixel Review

Not everyone wants a phone with a big screen, but most small-screen phones compromise on performance and cameras. Not so with Google’s latest flagship Android phone: Here’s our Google Pixel review.
Joining the ranks of the Pixel C and Chromebook Pixel are Google’s new Pixel phones. We’re reviewing the smaller 5in Pixel here, but you can read our separate Pixel XL review if you’re after a bigger phone.

Oppo RX17 Pro Review: Hands-on

We had time with Oppo’s new RX17 Pro. It may be blue and purple but how different is it to the similar OnePlus 6T and is it worth your time?
Should I Buy The Oppo RX17 Pro?
Oppo has made a solid mid-range phone in the RX17 Pro. Build quality is premium, fast charging is industry-best fast and the display is of high quality.But the price is high at 599€ considering the OnePlus 6T with a better processor starts at £499/€529. And while functioning as it’s supposed to, ColorOS is still unrefined for the western market with far too many changes to Android to recommend over competitors.

Nest Thermostat E Review

The Nest Thermostat E is a no-brainer in the US, but it's a trickier sell in the UK thanks to a price that's much closer to the similar third generation Nest
Should I Buy The Nest Thermostat E?
The Nest E is a great smart thermostat that’s comfortably among the most stylish and easy to use on the market, but as it stands in the UK, there’s not much reason to opt for the E over the existing 3rd gen Nest, which has some extra functionality for a similar price.It's a different story in the US though - a bigger price gap makes the E an easy recommendation if you're in the States.
