Lawrence, Kansas, November 1, 2005—MartinLogan, the Loudspeaker Technology Company, announced today the introduction of the new Vantage™ loudspeaker, representing an unprecedented direction for high-end audiophile loudspeaker design. The result of years of research, the new Vantage™ powered hybrid electrostatic loudspeaker features advanced technological developments, dramatically reducing cabinet size and establishing new standards for efficiency, dynamics and precision in a floor-standing loudspeaker.
Vantage’s™ Features Include:
- XStat™ Electrostatic Transducer featuring:
- Ultra-Rigid AirFrame™ Technology
Advanced Vacuum Bonding
CLS™ (Curvilinear Line Source)
High-Resolution PoweredForce™ Woofer
35 Hz Level Control
Ultimate Crossover Engineering
Living in the shadow of the impressive Summit speaker is no easy task. Vantage rises to the challenge by compressing Summit’s groundbreaking ultra high-resolution XStat™, AirFrame™ and PoweredForce™ technologies into a surprisingly compact package and price.
PoweredForce™ Bass—Low-End Authority, Compact Form
Shockingly powerful and accurate bass results from Vantage’s concurrently designed PoweredForce 8-inch aluminum cone woofer, 200-watt high-resolution amplifier, and precision acoustic control cabinet design. The result? Usable bass extension down to 34Hz, immense bass dynamics and precision beyond the reach of traditional passive box systems—all from an enclosure not much larger than a case of wine! Additionally, the simple turn of a 35Hz equalization knob allows precision low-end calibration to optimize speaker/room integration.
XStat™ Transducer and Ultra Rigid AirFrame™ Enhance Electrostatic Purity Revealing every subtle nuance of recorded sound with unflinching accuracy, Vantage’s ultra rigid AirFrame and curvilinear XStat electrostatic transducer reveal a magical performance and set new listening standards for precision, dynamics and three-dimensional sound staging—all from an extremely compact stat panel.
Housed within a radical, ultra-rigid, extruded aluminum and composite AirFrame™, Vantage’s™ new CLS™ (Curvilinear Line Source) XStat™ transducer builds upon the legacy of MartinLogan's electrostatic heritage with advanced Vacuum Bonding and MicroPerf stat panels providing even greater efficiency and precision. The integration of exotic toroidal transformer engineering and an electrical interface technology developed by MartinLogan's Statement™ e2 engineering team extends effortless dynamics and purity resulting in even higher sonic standards of efficiency and precision.
