Product Description

The ElectroMotion ESL X features a new larger XStat electrostatic transducer, with a radiating area over 50in2 larger than the EM-ESL model. Twin 8-inch high-excursion woofers are housed in a non-resonant asymmetrical bass reflex (ported) chamber, in a surprisingly compact enclosure. Woofers have custom engineered high-rigidity paper cones, with extended-throw driver assemblies.

The ElectroMotion ESL X (EM-ESL X) X features a larger electrostatic transducer and dual woofers, with increased power-handling capabilities. As the flagship model of the ElectroMotion Series, the X establishes a new benchmark for price versus performance.

The ElectroMotion ESL X features a new larger XStat electrostatic transducer, with a radiating area over 50in2 larger than the EM-ESL model. Twin 8-inch high-excursion woofers are housed in a non-resonant asymmetrical bass reflex (ported) chamber, in a surprisingly compact enclosure. Woofers have custom engineered high-rigidity paper cones, with extended-throw driver assemblies. Component elements within the EM-ESL X replicate the design and performance of components used on many of MartinLogan's more expensive loudspeakers, such as custom-wound transformers, air-core coils, large steel laminate inductors, polyester and low DF electrolytic capacitors. Custom 5-way bi-wire binding posts allow for secure wire connections. System Frequency Response is 41-22,000 Hz ±3db. Recommended amplifier power is 20-400 watts per channel. Impedance is rated at 6 ohms (1.6 ohms at 20 kHz); the EM-ESL X is compatible with 4, 6, or 8 ohm rated amplifiers.

A unique XStat transducer was developed for the ElectroMotion Series to reduce the gauge thickness of the electrostatic panel's steel stators. The reduced gauge does not alter the performance characteristics of the panel. However, as a natural byproduct of tighter build tolerances, it does increase the visual transparency of the panel. The EM-ESL X's XStat panel is so visually transparent it nearly vanishes when you're sitting and listening.

MartinLogan is a manufacturer of high-end speakers, including electrostatic speakers and hybrid electrostatic speakers. The company was founded in 1983 by Gayle Martin Sanders and Ron Logan Sutherland, and is based in Kansas, USA.

MartinLogan is known for its innovative designs and use of advanced technologies to deliver high-quality sound. The company's electrostatic speakers, in particular, are highly regarded for their exceptional sound quality, which is achieved through the use of a thin, lightweight diaphragm that is suspended between two stator panels. This design allows the speakers to produce a highly detailed and accurate sound that is highly sought after by audiophiles.

MartinLogan also offers hybrid electrostatic speakers, which combine an electrostatic panel with a traditional cone speaker to provide a wider frequency response and better bass performance.
