Martin Logan to make Bristol Hi-Fi Show debut

Martin Logan has announced it will exhibit at The Bristol Hi-Fi Show 2020 for the first time, courtesy of its new UK distributor, PMC Distributor UK.

This will be the first opportunity for UK audiophiles to see product lines from both companies in one place. 

Best known for its electrostatic panel designs, Martin Logan was founded in Kansas, US in 1980 and is now being exported to over 50 countries.

PMC Distribution UK started representing the Martin Logan brand in July 2019 and has since significantly strengthened the company’s current offering of legendary electrostatic panel speakers with the new Motion Series, custom install products and the extensive subwoofer range. 

The Bristol Hi-Fi Show 2020 will see Martin Logan showcasing its flagship Masterpiece Series electrostatic loudspeakers alongside the new Motion Series, and other products in the Bristol Suite, stand number 7b on the ground floor of the show. Many of the speakers on show have not been seen in the UK before. 

Key staff from Martin Logan will be on hand for the duration of the show to meet visitors and answer questions as well as giving technical knowledge and conducting timed demonstrations of selected products in the SS Great Britain 1 and 2 Suites. 

Predicted to be the main product of interest from the Martin Logan range is the Motion Series - the 15i and 35TXi bookshelf speakers, 30i and 50TXi centre channel designs and 20i, 40i and 60TXi floor standers. 

Priced from £795 to £2995 per pair, each speaker provides a fast-transient response and distortion free output from its Folded Motion tweeters, a technology that provides the accuracy and delicacy of an electrostatic panel from a compact driver. 

With finish options of Matte White, Red Walnut or Gloss Black, the Motion Series feature aluminium cone drive units to generate a broad, realistic midrange, with dynamics that smoothly blend with deep, musical bass, thanks to the exacting tolerances of the custom, hand-built crossovers. 

“For far too many years, Martin Logan has been known in the UK only for its high-end and premium priced electrostatic loudspeakers,” said Ian Sutton, PMC Distribution UK’s director. “While these phenomenal products are rightly revered around the world, they are exclusive – justifiably so.

“What is little known in the UK is that Martin Logan has an extensive range of speakers that have inherited the DNA of the flagship products, but at a much more affordable price making the Martin Logan magic available to everyone.”

He added: “for this reason we are making a special effort to bring the entire range to the Bristol Hi-Fi Show, so the UK hi-fi fans can see what they’ve been missing and how accessible Martin Logan is.”

The Bristol Hi-Fi Show will take place at the Bristol Marriott Hotel City Centre from 21-23 February 2020.
