What customers say about "Size & Weight"
MartinLogan LX16 Piano Black (Ea.) Bookshelf Speaker
  • It's the mids and tweeter that really shine. I like the compact size.
  • Excellent compact speaker. Highs are crystal clear and and bass is not bad for a small speaker.
  • They are a very good size, and they feel very substantial.
  • They are quite heavy for their size so wall mounting will need to be robust.
  • They just not good for the room size and shape.
MartinLogan Motion 15 Gloss Black Bookshelf Loudspeaker
  • I am amazed at the great sound from these little speakers! I am not using a Sub, and for my small room, that has not been an issue.
  • These two little speakers are two monsters that produce an incredible sound.
  • A lot of people like them, and they are great little speakers for an exceptional price.
  • As everyone else has stated, the black piano finish is beautiful and stands out, even for such small speakers.
  • Really speechless... just have to say that I continue to get blown away by the power and sonic quality of these small speakers with such a big sound!

What customers say about "Audio"
MartinLogan LX16 Piano Black (Ea.) Bookshelf Speaker
  • Great, the sound is clear and detailed. Bass is good for the size.
  • Clear, balanced sounds throughout the audible sound spectrum.
  • Very clean looking, and sounding, speakers. Not a very large speaker when compared to many other bookshelf speakers, but definitely not lacking.
  • They sound great. Take about a week to fully break in. The treble is even more perfect when they're turned up a little.
  • It sounds like the woofers bottom out and get sloppy very quickly- not suited to music.
MartinLogan Motion 15 Gloss Black Bookshelf Loudspeaker
  • These the best speakers I have ever owned. I can now hear every instrument and can handle lots of power.
  • The folded ribbon tweeter does live up to the hype and provides very accurate and crisp sound without being harsh or shrill like some of the horn designs.
  • Sound is very subjective, but everyone who experiences them in my home becomes a big fan.
  • I bought these speakers four years ago and I still enjoy their superb crystal clear sound which I mainly experience with my collection of classical music.
  • The speakers sounds crisp and clear. I am currently using this as a center channel as my other is being replaced soon.

What customers say about "Features"
MartinLogan LX16 Piano Black (Ea.) Bookshelf Speaker
  • The build quality is excellent. I have a subwoofer, which adds the very low frequencies which no small cabinet like these can present.
  • These cabinets sound great. The build quality is exceptional as well.
  • The build quality Is really amazing, they look and feel like a luxury purchase.
  • They are beautiful speakers and have excellent build quality. The magnetic metal grills which appear to float outside the speakers scream high end.
  • A nice detailed and open midrange. Great imaging and soundstage. Perfect center image and nice instrument separation. Build quality is excellent.
MartinLogan Motion 15 Gloss Black Bookshelf Loudspeaker
  • Having said that, design and build quality are most important to speaker performance. I wanted to let others know that this tweeter design has a history of audiophile performance.
  • Of course, the finish and build quality is exceptional. As soon as you pull it from the box you can immediately tell this is not only a solidly-built speaker, but a beautiful one too.
  • The piano black is sophisticated and high-tech without looking too sterile, and I think it adds some visual interest to just about any room.
  • These speakers are Awesome! Full thunderous sound and build solid. magnetic front screen is nice too.
  • I wanted to let others know that this tweeter design has a history of audiophile performance. I am going to listen to them soon.
