MartinLogan | Illusion ESL C34A

Illusion ESL C34A is the ultimate performance floorstanding center channel loudspeaker that blurs the lines between performance and reality by combining the dynamics of a 34-inch wide XStat CLS electrostatic transducer with the detailed imaging capability of Folded Motion XT tweeters, four 6.5-inch PoweredForce Forward™ woofers powered by a 250-watt Class-D amplifier, and controlled by a 24-Bit Vojtko™ DSP Engine and ARC™ (Anthem Room Correction).

Masters of the Illusionist school of art perfected trompe-l’oeil, employing painting techniques that mimicked actual objects so vividly that “Illusionism” blurred the boundaries between art and reality.

This kind of illusion is the goal of any loudspeaker, especially a center channel speaker—the most important speaker in a multi-channel audio system. It is tasked with reproducing the most important audio information for imaging and realism: cinematic dialogue, anchoring effects, and a large portion of the front sound stage. It is fitting, then, that we introduce our new Masterpiece Series center channel loudspeaker, the Illusion ESL C34A.

A Masterful Cinematic Experience
There are no illusions about the performance of the Illusion ESL C34A. It is the ultimate high performance floorstanding electrostatic center channel loudspeaker. Its classic MartinLogan electrostatic panel and Folded Motion XTTweeters are uniquely integrated to powered woofer section—new technology joined with proven innovation producing a truly innovate center channel loudspeaker.

The Ultimate Center Channel Loudspeaker
This ambitious new center channel blurs the line between performance and reality by combining the unflinching accuracy of a 34-inch wide XStat™ CLS™ electrostatic transducer with the detailed imaging capability of dual Folded Motion XT tweeters. Additionally, four laser-engineered 6.5-inch aluminum cone woofers, driven by 250 watts of clean amplification with on-board Anthem Room Correction (ARC) technology, anchor the image to your screen and deliver massive cinematic impact.

The Illusion ESL C34A is timbre-matched to our flagship Masterpiece Series speakers to create a white-knuckle home theater experience of skidding car chases, blitzing battle scenes, or even intimately whispered dialogue within a seamlessly coherent surround-sound environment, making the Illusion ESL C34A the perfect center of your Masterpiece home theater.

PoweredForce™ Bass Technology
Inspired by the breakthrough innovations of the Masterpiece Series, the Illusion ESL C34A features a redesigned woofer section. The four 6.5-inch laser-engineered low-distortion aluminum cone drivers use exclusive PoweredForce™ bass technology to deliver astonishingly articulate, well-blended bass, as low as 45Hz, from its compact enclosure. The new 250-watt Class-D amplifier is controlled by a 24-Bit Vojtko™ DSP Engine and includes ARC™ (Anthem Room Correction).

ARC instantly optimizes the performance to suit your room’s unique characteristics, further improving the most important elements of full range center channel performance: consistent bass reproduction and precise imaging.

Colour Options
Available in a range of premium Gloss & Gloss Metallic Finishes: Dark Cherry, Gloss Black, Gloss White, Walnut, Basalt Black, Meteor Grey, Arctic Silver, Desert Silver, Deep Sea Blue, Cordoba Red, Rosso Fuoco

Illusion ESL C34A

"After three months of living with the Illusion center channel speaker, placed in an already top-tier home theater system, the improvement that it provided over my Stage X was evident in the natural spaciousness of the sound stage and a nigh-perfect blend with the acoustic properties of the CLXs." Lawrence D. Devoe, MD, TheaterByte.com // Read the review here
 
"In short the Illusion ESL C34A is a world-class center channel. If you have a MartinLogan system, it is a no-brainer. And if you are not a MartinLogan owner, all hope is not lost, since the ESL C34A's tone-control capabilities provide some flexibility to blend this center channel with other speakers."
