Kevin said: If you’re squeezed for space and want excellent reproduction of music and terrific sound for viewing, the Pulse Soundbar and Pulse Sub may well be the answer.
The gist: Wireless and non-obtrusive way to get great sound from right under your TV.
Kevin said: In MartinLogan’s Motion SLM X3 you get superb sound quality in three discrete channels with separation that’s among the best I’ve heard from anything like a soundbar, and with clarity, compliments of ML’s Folded Motion tweeter, that may be unrivaled -- again, for a soundbar.
The gist: The tweeter is what separates this model from your average soundbar.
System Price: $3322
