Product Description

Motion Vision delivers 5-channel surround sound from a sleek and sculptural all-in-one system that's stylish yet unobtrusive, simple to install, and easy to operate. Three advanced-resolution Folded Motion tweeters, four 4-Inch high-performance woofers, and seven dedicated amplifiers deliver 100 watts of total system power. The Motion Vision was engineered with a commanding bass performance paired with precisely etched mid- and high-frequencies, creating a vivid, three-dimensional soundstage. Advanced digital signal processing (DSP) technology and industry leading surround sound decoding allow MartinLogan to replace five separate home theater speakers with a one piece solution that reproduces multi-channel recordings with unflinching accuracy, resolution and detail the inspiration behind every MartinLogan design. Motion Vision delivers front left/right and center channels via dedicated Folded Motion tweeters and high-performance woofers and simulates rear left/right effects channels to create fully immersive, five-channel surround sound throughout the listening environment. Dual rear-firing bass ports reinforce the bass extension for astonishingly deep bass and can be adjusted plus or minus 10dB to custom tailor bass performance. For bass aficionados who desire the deepest bass experience, the built-in SWT-2 transmitter allows, at the touch of a button, the addition of a compatible wireless MartinLogan subwoofer. For those who desire a non-wireless subwoofer, Motion Vision offers simple wired connectivity. The rear panel on the Motion Vision has digital optical, digital coaxial, and analog stereo inputs that allow effortless hook-up of Blu-ray/DVD/CD players, gaming consoles, satellite receivers, and other external sources. Just plug them in and you're ready within minutes to rediscover your favorite music and movies.

Conclusion: Overall a very good sounding product for music & movies and it's physically attractive.
Rick M.
For me this worked well as I plugged in the bar and my tivo had both an optical out and HDMI, so hdmi to the tv and optical to the soundbar.

While the surround is not equivalent, I appreciate this little system as much as my definitive technology 7.1 system.

My new 60" plasma has an excellent display but predictably poor audio from its built-in speakers. For serious listening and blu-ray watching, I use my home theater system which includes Martin Logan SL3s, a Logos center channel, and Vignettes for surrounds but for normal TV watching I need a sound bar that won't offend my all too sophisticated ears and one that turns on and off with the TV and cable box so my wife can enjoy the TV when I'm not home.

The Motion Vision is the sixth sound bar in just a few months that I have had in my system. Several factors separate it from the others I've auditioned, three of these sound bars included wireless subwoofers...they had some ill defined bass which seemed distant from thin sound emanating from the bars. The large flat wooden Zvox was highly touted by home theater and audiophile mags, it was my biggest disappointment.

The Vision is a 5.1 sound bar...it has a dedicated center speaker which separates the dialog from the background and soundtrack making the voices much easier to understand. Though this is a single piece design, there is considerable punch and definition in the bass and very smooth response all the way up the range. The Folded Motion tweeters aid in giving the Vision finesse in the higher frequencies...that characteristic Martin Logan airy and box-less sound that I enjoy from my electrostatics. As the individual components in the Vision break in with time, it sounds better and better by the week.

Well if you are looking at this review you are probably looking for an upscale soundbar. Also, I doubt that Martin Logan is a term you probably you know if you are looking here. I was looking for a great soundbar for our family room. My theater set up is a nice Definitive Technology set up that we were used to watching all our TV on. Alas the house has changed and I was found looking for a more wife pleasing audio solution, after hating listening to the actual TV speakers . So I found 3 real options B&W with it's 2k panorama bar (now redone to include HDMI), Martin Logan's Motion Vision at about 1.5k, and Definitive Technology's solocinema again about 1.5-2k (but includes a wireless sub). I went out and bought the definitive as it was a new product and I love my definitive theater system. Needless to say it one did not work, two never really sounded good with shows like "The Voice", but did sound good with movies. Anyhow, because it failed I went back to check out the Martin Logan.

Now there is a good review of the Martin Logan in Sound & Vision magazine. The bar itself looks very nice with nice curves and a piano black finish. Aka finger prints piano black like the original playstation. Now one thing I didn't think I was going to like was that both the B&W and Definitive were HDMI where the Martin Logan has two optical audio inputs and a composite input. So you do have to think how you want to wire it and how many inputs you need. For me this worked well as I plugged in the bar and my tivo had both an optical out and HDMI, so hdmi to the tv and optical to the soundbar. Then just plug in the soundbar and ready to go.

As for the sound I was pretty instantly impressed. The bar itself does a couple of very important things IMHO.

Pros: Clean clear sound. Night mode is great. Nice powerful bass. Attractive looks & good size. Convenient controls on top of unit, unobtrusive display

Cons: Price. Could use an HDMI input. Display should show volume by default. Bass should be adjustable plus & minus (not just +). Remote is not on par with soundbar.

Detailed explanations: Not to be a pessimist, but I think people reading reviews want to know more about the negative issues with a product, so here are some details regarding them.
The display by default shows the letters "ML". If you adjust the volume, it switches to the a numerical volume display but then automatically goes back to "ML". I don't think any user of this product cares to see the manufacturers initials showing on the display all the time. It's much more important to see the current volume level as you are switching from one input to another so you don't blast the speakers when switching inputs. You may be watching a DVD movie (which may require a volume of level of 50), then you switch to TV and bam, the volume is like twice as loud...dangerous. If the display showed the volume level it may act as a reminder to lower it before switching sources.
My other complaint is the remote, which is shameful at the price point of this product! Not only does it have a cheap feel, sometimes I have to press the buttons several times before it accepts the input. Also, a better, larger remote could have direct access to the menu options of the unit. Instead you have to play the game of cycling through every menu option using up/down/right/left arrows to find what you want to adjust. Unacceptable at this price imo!
Lastly, the Martin Logan soundbar lacks an HDMI input.

I tested this soundbar with a MartinLogan Dynamo 700 10-inch Wireless Ready Subwoofer, connected wirelessly. When I make price comparisons, I'm including the price of the MartinLogan subwoofer with the price of the soundbar, as I consider it an essential purchase.

Unfortunately, this soundbar does not defy the laws of physics to sound like a 5.1 setup (which I wasn't expecting), or even an inexpensive 3.1 setup (which I was hoping for).

Compared to two Pioneer SP-BS22-LR's (left and right channels), a Pioneer SP-C22 (center channel), and a Pioneer SW-8MK2 (subwoofer) paired with an inexpensive receiver, the Pioneer 3.1 setup is in another league, and at only a third the price. If you have the room, the Pioneers are great little speakers.

Unfortunately, I am in a situation where a soundbar is the only option.

Compared to a Polk Audio Surround Bar 9000 IHT, this soundbar is definitely better, although I'm not sure if it is three times better (it costs three times as much). It might be twice as good though, and the subwoofer is much better.

I'm using the soundbar in a somewhat large and open room, which definitely isn't doing it any favors, but when playing movies and music, I was never really wowed by the sound. I was never deceived into thinking I was listening to a larger speaker.

Positives:
* There is some stereo separation.
* The mids and highs are relatively clear.
* Fit and finish is very good. I like the black lacquer.
* Build quality is good. The soundbar feels sturdy and has a itgood weight.
* Syncing the wireless subwoofer was easy.

Negatives:
* Doesn't sound as good as an inexpensive 3.1 setup.
* Limited mounting options.
