Martin Logan Impression ESL 11A Floorstanding Speakers

The Martin Logan Impression ESL 11A floorstanding speakers are crafted to immerse you in pure audio performance, seamlessly blending into your listening experience. Inspired by the Impressionist masterpieces, these speakers aim to evoke emotions and deliver an immediate, emotive impact.

Immersive Audio Experience

Part of the Masterpiece Series, the Impression ESL 11A boasts a dual 8-inch woofer system, meticulously honed for flawless low-frequency response. Integrating MartinLogan's signature 11-inch wide XStat CLS transducer with a dual amplifier setup, these speakers deliver expressive and dynamic audio.

Electrostatic Technology

Featuring Advanced MicroPerf stator technology, reinforced electrostatic panels, and a sleek AirFrame Blade construction, the Impression ESL 11A offers unparalleled transparency and realism in sound reproduction. The innovative design enhances the connection between the panel and its woofer cabinet, creating a harmonious audio experience.

Innovative Bass Technology

Powered by new dual 275-watt Class-D amplifiers and controlled by a 24-Bit Vojtko™ DSP Engine and ARC™ (Anthem Room Correction), the Impression ESL 11A's woofer section utilises PoweredForce Forward™ bass alignment technology. This technology minimises the impact of rear-firing bass reflections, resulting in uniform frequency response and realistic bass effects.

Room Calibration with Anthem Room Correction

For optimal performance in any listening environment, the Impression ESL 11A features exclusive Anthem Room Correction (ARC) technology. ARC measures and corrects low-frequency sound output, eliminating spatial anomalies and ensuring natural, blended bass performance tailored to your room.

Ultra-Rigid AirFrame Blade Design

The speakers' AirFrame Blade construction, precision-manufactured from aerospace-grade aluminium alloy, enhances rigidity while minimising intermodulation distortion caused by vibration. This design enhances imaging, sonic detail, accuracy, and speaker efficiency.

Curvilinear Line Source (CLS) Electrostatic Panel

CLS technology, essential to every Martin Logan electrostatic loudspeaker, enhances high-frequency detail without compromising overall sound quality. The gentle curve and perforation pattern of the panel contribute to its modern aesthetic.

Controlled Dispersion Sound Radiation

The dipole nature of electrostatic panels produces a controlled dispersion radiation pattern, minimising side-wall reflections and enhancing stereo imaging and depth perception.

PoweredForce Forward™ Bass Technology

Combining PoweredForce and ForceForward technologies, the Impression ESL 11A delivers accurate bass reproduction while minimising performance-robbing front-wall reflections. This technology allows for more flexible speaker placement and enhances audio realism.

Placement and Connectivity

With its thoughtful cabinet design and WBT Binding Posts, the Impression ESL 11A offers precise low-frequency performance and versatile placement options. The speakers incorporate Martin Logan's proprietary crossover technology for seamless integration and transparent audio reproduction.

Precision-Built Vojtko Crossover

Hand-built using premium components, the Vojtko crossover ensures low distortion and seamless driver integration, preserving sonic nuances and dynamics. Martin Logan's toroidal transformer and electrical interface engineering guarantee transparent audio performance.
