    Bad Martin Logan, Excellent Best Buy!

    Buy these speakers at Best Buy last November 20. The first couple I arrived with large white patches on the woofers. I returned and buying a second pair, who also had the same defect. After 2 days of trying to talk to someone in Logan Martin I could talk to a technical support and gave me 2 options: woofers clean with alcohol or they did get me the rubbers with the instructions to change. I also explained that were not fungi but a chemical that was staining the speakers. What happened to the quality control of Martin Logan? Clean with alcohol about $ 3,000.00 speakers? I was not satisfied with the answers of Logan Martin and I lost the confidence in your brand. I ended up buying a Bowers & Wilkins CM9 S2 with which I am very happy. Boxes and packaging for B & W came perfectly sealed and well protected the speakers. The sound quality is spectacular! Finally, the overall winner is BEST BUY who always supported me and I was aware of my situation during the almost 30 days of the whole process. ! It has good support BEST BUY. But above all that people so nice and clear. Congrats to the whole team of Magnolia in Brandon. Thank you very much for your effort not to discourage me.

    I upgraded to the ML 60's a week after I purchased the ML 40's to get a fuller bass response for 2 channel audio. This was indeed the case, though the mids and highs were much improved as well. I played several 2 channel sacd's as well as multichannel music and movies. I found the desired outcomes for all of these choices to be pleasing to the ears as well as clean, pure replicated instrumental purity at high volume levels. The neighbors probably regret my purchase, but other than that, I would highly recommend the MarLo 60xt's to anyone in the market for new towers.

    I upgraded to the Motion 60's a week after purchasing Motion 40's. The prospect of deeper bass response was enough to make me pull the trigger. I will say that not only was there a deeper bass response, but the larger folded motion tweeter was equally impressive and matched very well with the two 8" woofers and single 6" mid driver. The speakers sound incredible in both 2 channel and 5.1 formats (mine are matched with the 50XT center and Motion 15 rears). I listened to B&W CM8,9, &10s as well as def.tech. mythos super tower and I found the Martin Logan 60's superiority over both was quite evident. They are sonically well balanced and would recommend them highly.

    Got this recently along with a Pioneer SC 81. Hooked them up and wow the music that comes out is incredible. My dogs were shivering the first day. However I got to say I am not as impressed as I was thinking I would be after listing to the ML 40s. I was thinking I would be blown away but not quite there yet. I single wired them first and was not impressed at all. However after bi-amping them I did feel a lot of differences, So I would suggest to do so if you do not own a separate amp yet. I do however want to get a separate amp pretty soon to appreciate what these have to offer. Overall I would say buy them but I am pretty sure you will appreciate them more if you have a standalone amplifier in place.

    I can't say enough about how incredible these speakers are. I have sold high end speakers for over 8 years and these are very special speakers. Especially for the price range. I read many reviews on Absolute Sound and Sound and Vision and completely agree with what they said. Reference quality. I'm hearing things I have never heard before in my movies and music. The detail and sound stage really is incredible and they work great for all applications. I bought them with the Dynamo 1500X, Motion 50XT, and FX speakers for the rears. I'm very happy and ask that others hear these and read about these compared to others speakers in this range and even higher. In my opinion they can't be beat for value.

    I went to best buy to listen to these speakers. I bought my iPod and put on the music I typically to...all diff types. When they played i asked the rep to turn off the subwoofers and he said they were. They have excellent bass response, full sounding midrange and smooth highs. They played off an onkyo receiver in direct mode....i don't remember the wpc. My home set up consists of an emotiva xpa2-gen 2 power amp and a parasound halo p5 pre-amp.....hooked to my Apple airport express via optical...the parasound has a built in dac. They are still breaking in yet they sound better and better every time i play them. I am very satisfied with my purchase and sound from these speakers.

    Amazing sound for a large room

    We recently remodeled our home and we now have a great room that's about 2000 sq. ft. We are avid movie and tv watchers and love our tunes. We paired these speakers with a Marantz 6011 receiver/amp, the Motion 30 center channel, two Polk Audio Hi-Fronts, Velodyne subwoofer and 8" Sonance Ceiling rear surrounds. The sound, even in a huge room with too many hard surfaces is simply superb. The electrostatic tweeters really bring out the high ranges and the double woofers pack punch. You just need to make sure you have enough power to drive them well. Overall, if you're going to make an investment in a sound system, you won't be disappointed with the XT60s'.

    I did not purchase this at best buy as I had other vendor's gift cards. But did audition it at Magnolia. They sounded very balanced. Even though they are high efficiency speakers, I'd recommend running them with seperates, if these are used for 5.1 setup. I have paired these with 50XT and 35XTs. If it was only for the sound quality, I'd give it 5 stars. But when it arrived, I noticed white patches all over woofer and mid drivers. I could remove it with some alcohol. But these are expensive speakers and for the price it reasonable to expect clean speakers from Martin logan, specially when they are brand new.

    First went in to look at the 40’s! Last day of the sale. Brandon did a excellent job of demoing the 40’s and the 60’s. This is probably my last speaker purchase....couldn’t say no to the Mac daddy 60. Never had a high end floor speaker! Got a great deal! Waiting for them to ship as they sold out for this sale. Have a 7.1 system with a 60” pioneer Kuro TV. Going to disconnect the front in-walls and plug these into the system! Will update after they ship!

    Purchased a pair of ML Motion 60XT after reading reviews and listening at Best Buy. They sound even better at home than in the demo room. The high frequencies are crisp and the bass is deep; much better than the Infinity speakers they replaced. They did cost twice as much, so it might not be a fair comparison. They are being driven by a mid 90's Adcom GFA5500 rated for 350 watts into 4 ohms. Could not be happier with the sound.

    I wanted to upgrade my speakers (I have the motion 12's) they are good speakers just wanted something different. so I went into my local best buy and I heard the 60xt. all I could say was WOW. best buy was running a special buy two and get the dynamo 700 subwoofer for free. needless to say the motion 12's are in the closet. the 60xt paired with the dynamo 700 after you let them break in for 72 hours. WOW

    All the sound of electrostatics without the sound field constraints. Plenty of bass and presence. Pair with the ML Motion 50 for full home cinema impact. When pairing with a subwoofer (or two), you won't get much unless your sub can dip down into the 15-18Hz range as the ML Motion 60's go pretty low.

    I have 2 60xts and 1 50xt, and they are simply amazing pieces of hardware that plays soothing music to my ears. The sounds on these are very tight bass, midrange and also the highs. They are well played with my Marantz SR-7005 and so far they have not let me down. I will definitely buy and recommend Martin Logan XT series. I have the black cherry one for all 3 of mine and I love them.

    Went with the 60xt and 50xt after having the motion 40 and motion 8 for a month. I am very pleased with this upgrade. This setup doesnt require a high end reciever like most people say, but would be ideal if you have one. I went with a pioneer elite sc 89 for my setup and I am very pleased with the outcome.

    Have these in my fairly large living room. These sound amazing for both music and home theater. Go real low and suffice for music. I still feel the need to supplement with my subwoofer for movies especially for tight bass. But I can tell you that you have to hear to believe the amazing sound, I can hear instruments that I hadn't realized before.

    I decided it was time to buy a complete system to replace my 25 year old JBLs. After comparing the sound to several other comparable speakers, the new 60XT floor speakers Combined with the 50XT center had a clean sound. I discovered the speakers were more voice matched.

    Originally bought two of the xt60s and a Martin logan center channel. Loved the speakers so much I finished off my set up with two more xt60s in the rear. Speakers sound unbelievably crisp and clear. Worth every penny. Would highly reccomend.

    Excellent detail from the folded design tweeter. Nice balanced sound for any type of music and I listen to all. Strings and horns come thru nicely without being strident. Compact size,too.

    Can't complain about these speakers. Gorgeous looking, clear highs, mids, and lows. However, If you listen to bass-heavy music as I do, you will need a subwoofer. Money well spent
