Neolith is not for the faint of heart. As the embodiment of our philosophy of the truth in sound, its performance is unconstrained. It goes against the grain. In a world of small, Neolith says size is no impediment.

Neolith features one of Martin Logan's largest electrostatic radiating surfaces, fully 35% larger than the Statement E2. Its proprietary curvilinear electrostatic transducer delivers an ideal wave launch; a detailed, ultrarealistic soundstage, reproducing nearly the entire mid-range and high frequency audio spectrum. It is utterly uninhibited by room limitations.

Smoothly blended low-frequencies are provided by a 15-inch rear-firing ported woofer and 12-inch front-firing sealed mid-bass woofer. Combined, they deliver powerful, extremely accurate bass.

And this is just the beginning. The details demand your attention. The exclusive advanced-topology Vojtko Crossover uses hand-selected components for optimum power handling. The passive Neolith design gives you more control, allowing single-wire or bi-amp connections with silver filigree WBT Binding Posts, plus a unique system of audio adjustment jumpers. The audaciously sculpted Neolith frame is made of non-resonant Phenolic Resin Polymer, smoothly finished in a premium automotive gloss. Its hand-crafted woofer cabinet is wrapped in elegant soft leather.

Prepare yourself for an astonishing new audio experience; a bigger, bolder, no-holds-bared experience of breathtakingly articulate performance. The bespoke Neolith is the culmination of over 30 years of MartinLogan passion, engineering innovation and dedication to the ultimate truth in sound.

Martin Logan

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.
