MartinLogan stakes out high ground with its Summit X speaker

Steven Kim

MartinLogan isn't the kind of company that rolls out new speaker models every month, so it's notable when new introductions are made. The Kansas-based electrostatic manufacturer has borrowed some tech from its $25,000 flagship CLX loudspeaker and brought them to its relatively more affordable $13,995 Summit X model, making it the first to inherit the CLX's XStat transducer, PoweredForce woofers and Vojtko crossover design. That's a lot of trademark names, but the take home message is a panel that reaches down to 160Hz before the dual 10-inch woofers that can reach down to 24Hz and still keep up with the fast electrostatics are blended in. Still north of our budget, but we can dream, right?
