At the core of the Crescendo X is an advanced 24-bit 48kHz DSP (digital signal processing) based preamplifier in conjunction with a powerful class-D closed-loop 100-watt (140-watt peak) amplifier. Crescendo's amplifier creates powerfully detailed sound from a custom designed front-firing 5x7-inch matte black polypropylene cone woofer with extended throw drive assembly in a non-resonant asymmetrical chamber format. Low frequencies are seamlessly blended with two of MartinLogan's high-performance Folded Motion™ tweeters for an astonishing, room filling experience.
The signature Folded Motion tweeters utilize extremely low mass diaphragms that "squeeze" air, and require significantly less excursion than the typical 1-inch dome tweeter, which drastically minimizes distortion while providing a lightning fast response time. The increased surface area also provides a wide, yet controlled sound dispersion to create a realistic and carefully etched sound stage.
Crescendo is crafted with a solid MDF enclosure that strengthens and intensifies low-frequency bass performance while minimizing vibrations. To further enhance bass performance, Crescendo features an optional subwoofer output via an analog RCA connection. This option, not typical of tabletop speaker systems, customizes the crossover between the Crescendo and subwoofer to give true audiophiles the ability to supplement the low-frequency performance of their system.
Synonymous with electrostatic speakers, MartinLogan is famous for producing the finest quality electrostatic speakers for the home audio market. There’s something special about a MartinLogan electrostatic speaker that offers an extraordinary and compellingly realistic audio reproduction. This magical sound is created by using an electrostatic panel with super lightweight diaphragm for instantaneous movement and pairing this with a conventional cone speaker to deliver high quality bass in a hybrid speaker package.
Formed in the late 1970’s by Gayle Martin Sanders and Ron Logan Sutherland, the company created a name for itself in 1983 with the much acclaimed Monolith electrostatic speaker. The company has continued to evolve and develop their technology and now offers a full range of home audio speaker systems for Hi-Fi and Home Cinema systems.
Those who have never heard an electrostatic speaker before will immediately notice the difference when listening to their first MartinLogan electrostatic. View our range of MartinLogan speakers below and get in touch with our team if you need further information.
