Three High-Fidelity Speakers You Must Experience Three High-Fidelity Speakers You Must Experience

Explore Three Unique Approaches to High-Fidelity Audio from B&W, Klipsch, and MartinLogan

When it comes to high-fidelity speakers, all the great brands strive to do the same thing – reproduce the sound just the way it was recorded. In reality, all great brands have a certain character they bring to sound reproduction. 

It's not that they change the sound or actively try to do so. It's that they bring different design philosophies and technologies to the speakers they produce. Those design decisions make for different nuances in the sound. But that's what makes hi-fi wonderful – there's tremendous variety in sound presentation. If all speakers of a given size sounded the same, what fun would that be? The right speaker is ultimately the one that just sounds right to your ears.

In this blog, we’ll cover three great speakers from three great speaker companies – Bowers & Wilkins, Klipsch, and MartinLogan. The three that we picked are very close in price and are affordable for the hi-fi audio enthusiast. While not inexpensive, any of these could easily be in your system twenty years from now, because great speakers never go out of style. 

Keep reading to see which of these speakers gets your audio juices flowing in your Dunwoody, GA listening room.

Upgrade Your Stereo System with Martin Logan’s Stunning Speakers

At Georgia Home Theater, we like to associate ourselves with quality brands. When it comes to audio, we have a preference for companies, products, and brands that have been synonymous with quality for a long time. Those brands include Bowers & Wilkins, McIntosh, Klipsch, Rotel and Paradigm, to name a few. Each of those companies has a commitment to offering the best audio performance possible for each of the products they offer, whether that product is aimed at the high or low end of the market.

Recently, we have been proud to add another well-known name with a reputation for quality to our offerings: Martin Logan. Martin Logan is yet another American Hi-Fi company (like McIntosh and Klipsch), founded in the unlikely location of Lawrence, Kansas, by Gayle Martin Sanders and Ron Logan Sutherland. Sutherland was an electrical engineer, and they both had a fascination with electrostatic speakers. What are electrostatic speakers? They are quite different from conventional speaker drivers that use electromagnets and current to move air. Electrostatic speakers vibrate air using thin conducive panels suspended between stationary panels. They are also known as dipole speakers, as they radiate sound all around from these panels as opposed to more directional sound from conventional speaker drivers.

When Martin Logan began, most electrostatic designs were relative failures. They were hard to drive with most amplifiers, and they were weak in bass reproduction. They did, however, offer an airy, enveloping sound that could reproduce genres like classical music in a more natural way than conventional speakers.

To make a long story short, suffice it to say that Martin Logan has applied years of engineering work in electronics and material science to perfect the electrostatic speaker. Today they are the foremost purveyor of electrostatic speakers, to the delight of audio enthusiasts who know that their sound is like no other, offering the kind of soundstage you hear at a live performance.

Georgia Home Theater is pleased to bring the transparent high fidelity sound of Martin Logan to your HiFi stereo system at your home in the Roswell area. Read on to learn more about three Martin Logan speaker models that can transform yourlistening room.
