Motion 35XT is our largest bookshelf with extreme performance capabilities, featuring luxurious high-gloss wood finishes and matching aesthetics to the rest of the Motion Series lineup.

XT stands for extreme, and for good reason. The Motion 35XT bookshelf plays louder, lower, and with unflinching accuracy. Our most accurate Folded Motion™

XT tweeter paired with a low-distortion 6.5-inch high-excursion black-aluminum woofer and low-turbulence rear-firing bass port creates audible acoustic alchemy.

MartinLogan’s signature perforated steel grille attaches magnetically to the solidly constructed 3/4-inch thick MDF cabinets on the Motion 35XT. Hidden discretely underneath the grille, the drivers are held securely in place by a solid, black-anodized brushed aluminum baffle. Folded Motion

MARTIN LOGAN Motion 35XT Review

Reviewed by Tone Audo

"The 35XTs uncover a lot of fine detail and nuance in recordings, which contributes to the sense of ambient sound around them. At the same time, they do not lean toward ear-singing fatigue, a testament to ML’s years of ESL design and voicing."
