Meet the Martin Logan Neolith

Once upon a time (say 1983), Martin Logan had a mighty flagship, the Monolith. Living up to its name at 6 feet tall and over two feet wide, the Monolith boasted a massive electrostat panel paired with a 12” woofer to fill in the low end. Fast forward to today, and Martin Logan is back it with their latest creation, the Neolith. Utilizing a 22”x48” electrostatic transducer, the Neolith follows in its ancestors footsteps. Yes, there’s even a 12” woofer to help fill in the low end…along with a 15” woofer in a ported enclosure to help extend response down to 23Hz! Also of note, the Neolith is a fully passive design, with facilities for single and biamping available.

Martin Logan is naturally being tight lipped about their new flagship; currently there is only a single pair in the world. However, we do have a few extra details in hand. The Neolith will utilize a high density composite for construction, which should help minimize cabinet and panel vibrations, and it will be available in a variety of painted finishes. Total dimensions are 75” H x 29.5” W x 35.5” D including spikes, and weight is said to be between 300 and 400 pounds. Pricing is TBD, though we’re told it should come in at well under $100,000.
