SKU: Crescendo X Walnut


Crescendo X is a luxury wireless speaker featuring
Bluetooth®, AirPlay, and whole-home wireless streaming with DTS®
 technology. Under the grill, the Crescendo X includes dual
audiophile quality Folded Motion™ tweeters and a 5×7-inch mid/bass woofer for a
deep, extended bass response. The Crescendo X is capable of reproducing sound
with unflinching accuracy, resolution, and detail—the inspiration behind every
MartinLogan design.

Our dedicated in-house design and engineering team created
the ultimate table-top speaker system in a sleek, compact design without
compromising sound quality. Taking a “no-compromise” approach, the
Crescendo features premium construction and design elements not typically found
in similar speakers.

Inspiring Design

MartinLogan has always blended Science with Art, and the
Crescendo X is no exception. Designed to fit a modern decor, MartinLogan
utilizes high-quality materials and finishes to give Crescendo X a furniture
and artwork like appearance. The result is striking.

The dense cabinet enclosure, wrapped in either high-gloss
piano black paint or real-wood walnut veneer, floats atop a sturdy aluminum
stand and looks comfortably at home in any decor where aesthetics are as
important as sound quality. A cleanly integrated, front mounted control panel
allows quick access to power, input and volume controls.

For across the room control, Crescendo X includes a custom
remote control built from black anodized extruded aluminum.

Unmatched Performance

At the core of the Crescendo X is an advanced 24-bit 48kHz
DSP (digital signal processing) based preamplifier in conjunction with a
powerful class-D closed-loop 100-watt (140-watt peak) amplifier. Crescendo X’s
amplifier creates powerfully detailed sound from a custom designed front-firing
5×7-inch matte black polypropylene cone woofer with extended throw drive
assembly in a non-resonant asymmetrical chamber format. Low frequencies are
seamlessly blended with two of MartinLogan’s high-performance Folded Motion™
tweeters for an astonishing, room filling experience.

The signature Folded Motion tweeters utilize extremely low
mass diaphragms that “squeeze” air, and require significantly less
excursion than the typical 1-inch dome tweeter, which drastically minimizes
distortion while providing a lightning fast response time. The increased
surface area also provides a wide, yet controlled sound dispersion to create a
realistic and carefully etched sound stage.

Crescendo X is crafted with a solid MDF enclosure that
strengthens and intensifies low-frequency bass performance while minimizing
vibrations. To further enhance bass performance, Crescendo X features an
optional subwoofer output via an analog RCA connection. This option, not
typical of tabletop speaker systems, customizes the crossover between the
Crescendo X and subwoofer to give true audiophiles the ability to supplement the
low-frequency performance of their system.

Wireless Connectivity

Crescendo X is part of MartinLogan’s Wireless Ensemble,
utilizing DTS Play-Fi technology. Listeners have the freedom and flexibility to
stream their high-resolution music (up to 24- bit/192kHz) wirelessly over an
