Martin Logan Expression ESL 13A Speakers

The Martin Logan Expression ESL 13A Speakers are available for demonstration in our Hull store by request.

The Martin Logan Expression ESL 13A Speakers are part of the Masterpiece Series. Featuring a dual 10-inch bass driver system common in the more expensive Martin Logan Speakers, the ESL 13A takes the bass performance a step further with the introduction of Anthem ARC technology, for a more balanced and controlled low-frequency response. The combination of the ARC technology alongside the bass drivers, plus Martin Logan’s signature 13-inch wide XStat CLS transducer, delivers a truly great expressive and dynamic performance.

The Impression ESL 13A shares similar DNA with other Martin Logan electro statics, such as, Advanced MicroPerf stator technology, allowing for almost twice the exposed electrostatic diaphragm surface as a traditional electrostatic panel of the same size. A reinforced electrostatic panel with rigid ClearSpar™ spacers, keeping an exact level of tension on the vacuum-bonded diaphragm. Add to these the slender, pointed-arrow design of the new AirFrame™ Blade construction. The electrostatic panel is precision manufactured from an aerospace-grade shaped aluminium alloy. This material, and this exclusive manufacturing process, makes the panels extremely rigid. Resulting in a perfect connection between the panel and the bass cabinet.

What sets the Expression 13A speakers above other Martin Logan’s are some breakthrough redesigns. The 13A bass section is now powered by new dual 300-watt Class-D amplifiers, and controlled by a 24-Bit Vojtko™ DSP Engine and ARC™ (Anthem Room Correction).

Using two 10-inch laser-engineered low-distortion aluminium cone bass drivers in separately enclosed compact chambers, exclusive PoweredForce Forward™ bass alignment technology controls the interaction between the rear-firing driver and the wall behind it. Minimising the effect that a wall has on bass performance, that might bounce back into the listening room.

Martin Logan At Fanthorpes

Martin Logan was formed in Kansas USA in the 1970's by Gayle Martin Sanders and Ron Logan Sutherland. Both driven by their passion for music they were determined to design an electrostatic speaker that would work in a domestic environment.

Martin Logan are now firmly established as the world leaders in Hybrid Electrostatic design. The Martin Logan hybrid design pairs an Electrostatic panel with a conventional cone speaker for bass, this results in a stylish, elegant electrostatic speaker that combines beautiful clarity with powerful bass.

Martin Logan speakers are a unique speaker design like nothing else currently stocked at Fanthorpes HiFi. We have truly embraced the Martin Logan philosophy and have stocked the range very broadly. We have 5 pairs of the Logan electrostatics on permanent demonstration. We have the Electromotion,and the Electromotion X. As a step up we have the Classic 9 panels. Further up the range, the Martin Logan Electrostatics adopt Anthem room correction. We can demonstrate the effects of this technology to you on the Impression 11A speakers. The highest levels of performance can be achieved with an in store demonstration of the mighty Martin Logan Renaissance 15A speakers. Of course if you would like a home demonstration of anything in the Martin Logan range please contact us and we will be happy to oblige.
