      Great High End Sound Bar

      Posted
      Virginiaguy247

      Two days ago I upgraded from the Motion Vision, to the Motion Vision X. I immediately noticed a difference in the sound quality. The mids and highs were more pronounced. My Dynamo 700 subwoofer came to life unlike when connected to the previous model, and sounds 30 to 40% better. (No exaggeration). This new model is Wi-Fi ready and has a Play-Fi app which allows you to stream music from your devices to the sound bar. There is one less optical port which makes no difference for my current set up, the previous model has two. The remote control is much larger than the previous one, and is made out of metal. The problems and concerns from the previous model have been addressed on this newest revision, except there are still no HDMI ports only digital optical. If you purchase this sound bar with reasonable expectations of simulated surround you’ll be happy. This sound bar is for people that want accurate, warm and natural sound, with pronounced midrange frequencies. If this is what you are looking for in a high end sound bar the Motion Vision X is for you. PROS 1. This newest model (X) performs a lot better than the previous model “Motion Vision” and is truly a high end sound bar. 2. The overall volume scale has changed and does not require being played at high levels to get adequate sound. For example it’s pretty loud at level 30, on the previous model I would normally have to play it at level 60 for normal listening. 3. The subwoofer response is great when connected to this unit (I chose wired over wireless). A subwoofer is not needed, the sound bar has plenty bass unless you enjoy windows rattling and vibrations in the floor. The Dynamo 700 did the trick for me. (Medium sized room) 4. You can adjust the "surround feature" to better simulate 5.1 surround. 5. It has a much larger remote (thanks Martin Logan) I got tired of having to look for it each day because it was so small. The new remote is elegant and fits the price range. 6. Performs great at low levels, and in night mode. All dialogue can be heard clearly regardless of volume level. 7. The display screen times out and darkens after your last command. On the previous model the letters “ML” was permanently displayed on the sound bar’s display screen, which was a little distracting at night. 8. Martin Logan has great support and is responsive to all requests. CONS 1. The simulated surround is a little better than on the previous model, but not much. 2. It's not easy to connect to Wi-Fi. You may have to move the sound bar near the router (until logged in) as instructed in the owner’s manual, or connect it via Ethernet cable until logged in. 3. It’s a little more expensive than the previous model but within reason. 4. Still no HDMI ports.

      This is my third Martin Logan product, having previously owned the Non-Play-Fi compatible version of this same product before. I hated having to turn my whole home theater system on to use my Apple TV for AirPlay so I upgraded to the newer version to be able to stream directly to the sound bar. When it works, the audio sounds great! Very clear vocals and a very diverse, well-balanced sound stage. When it's not working, I dread dealing with Best Buy and/or Martin Logan. The remote randomly stopped working and you couldn't control the sound bar at all. I was within my return policy for the item but the Magnolia Design Center insisted on keeping it for a few days to see if they could replicate the issue before they allowed me to exchange it. They were unable to and the return policy window lapsed so they gave it back to me (and now all of a sudden I'm having the same issues again). I really don't want to reach out to Martin Logan because they have you pay the shipping out to them to get items repaired and on an item like this (that I no longer have a box for) - it's easily going to be upwards of $100. I had to go thru this when my sub was making weird noises and they determined from my description that it had a defective board inside of it. Play-Fi is no longer working and updates constantly fail. When trying to stream music, it shows it's playing in the Play-FI app but you hear no audio and sometimes the Play-Fi app shows my device twice and one instance fails to connect, almost instantly, the other connects just fine you just don't hear anything (and yes this is after un-pairing and repairing everything and doing the software update that took 2 hours to complete after it constantly kept failing because the sound bar could not be found). For the price you pay, you'd expect better quality control. I came from a Sonos system at the advice of the Magnolia Design Center staff and I really wish I hadn't have listened to them because the Sonos system worked flawlessly and I never had any hardware issues with it - ever!

      Everything you have heard/read about the Motion Vison X is TRUE!! This soundbar kicks all other products straight in the rear, of course it comes at a hefty price but you cannot expect quality to be cheap at all. The best part of the ML MV X is being able to use ANY type of subwoofer, wireless or wired. All I did was use the "sub out" input, provided in the rear of the soundbar, to connect my old subwoofer to my new soundbar. Whole family loves the set up, sound is crisp and clear, dialogues are clearly audible without sacrificing the explosive power it packs. Current set-up: Sony Bravia XBR65X930D + Sony SAWX700 subwoofer (wired) + ML Motion Vision X

      amazing speakers. Not cheap, but absolutely worth it. The clarity and depth are great at the low volumes as well as the highs. It’s bass is good but has an output so you can add a separate. I read review after review and the only negative people complained about was the price. But if you want a speaker you’ll love, this Martin Logan is it. I tried finding it cheaper around but Best Buy in store had it marked as low as anywhere. And then you get the benefit of the service Best Buy offers. Thx Best Buy and thx Martin Logan!

      First off, the sound is great. I don't think I've heard better. But, the digital inputs have issues. There is a delay and you lose the first second or two of music tracks or if you have a DVR, when you FF and hit play, you miss the next work or two. This is not an issue if you use the analog (stereo) inputs. I am seriously considering doing just that - at least for the TV cable box. But in all likelihood, I'll return it and get a Yamaha. I'll give it a day or two.

      For our new LG 4K TV, we started with a different sound bar and sub woofer. Neither the speech nor music was good. Best Buy recommended the MartinLogan, and were very helpful in raising up the TV on a stand so that we could accommodate the new sound bar in front. The sound is excellent for speech and music when properly set. The controls are a bit complicated, and seem to need continual adjusting, but no doubt we'll get the hang of it.

      Questionable Value

      I'm very disappointed with this product. I recently purchased the Vision X to replace my receiver and 3 speaker set up (L, R, Center). I wanted a product that would work seamlessly with my Apple TV and Fios cable. Unfortunately, the soudbar often looses the connection when switching between inputs (all going through the TV). Moreover, the user interface is poor. When it works, it's good. Unfortunately, the value is not there at this price point.

      I previously purchased the motion vision soundbar 3 weeks before the motion vision x came out. The vision is a great soundbar but the motion vision x is a AWSOME soundbar. Even at low volume it delivers highs and midds that are extremely crisp! It's a little pricey but you get what you pay for! I'm happy with the price and the soundbar! Way to go Martin Logan!!!
