The MartinLogan Story
"Truth in Sound" is much more than a catchphrase, it’s their philosophy: MartinLogan speakers are designed to render the most complex musical passages as faithfully as a crystal prism disperses the color spectrum.
MartinLogan was founded by Gayle Martin Sanders and Ron Logan Sutherland. "MartinLogan just sounded better than SandersSutherland," Sanders explains. The two met in the late 1970s at a high-end audio store Sanders managed in Lawrence, Kansas. Despite very different backgrounds — Sanders trained in architecture and advertising, Sutherland in electrical engineering — they shared a passion for music and electrostatic loudspeakers. For listeners seeking the ultimate in sonic purity and clarity, electrostatic speakers held enormous appeal, but they were finicky and all suffered limitations. Overcoming these limitations was the making of MartinLogan. Today MartinLogan offers some of the finest electrostatic speakers to ever hit the market, as well as architectural speakers, subwoofers, sound bars and outdoor speakers.
