|The MartinLogan Neolith Loudspeaker|
This Saturday, November 8, MartinLogan will be holding a free event to demo their new flagship loudspeaker, the Neolith. The event, called “Truth in Sound,” will take place from 11:00am to 6:00pm at Overture Ultimate Home Electronics at 2423 Concord Pike (Rt 202) in Wilmington, DE (phone 800-838-1812 or 302.478.6050 and e-mail:[email protected]).
If you come to the event, you can bring your own music and hear it played through the Neolith—a very cool opportunity! Come early, however, because the ability to play your own music on the new flagship speakers will be on a first-come-first-served basis. Light snacks and a selection of hot and cold beverages will be served.
The event will likewise be an opportunity to meet and talk with some of the MartinLogan team. The “Truth in Sound” event will feature members of the MartinLogan sales, marketing and engineering team, along with Overture’s founder Terry Menacker, who will all be available to answer questions, perform demos and provide an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the intensive development process that created Neolith.
MartinLogan says that the built-to-order Neolith loudspeaker is the result of an ambitious 3-year-long development process. The Neolith combines the innovations of MartinLogan’s legendary Statement Evolution 2 loudspeaker with the iconic simplicity of the original Monolith loudspeaker.

According to MartinLogan, Neolith features their largest-ever electrostatic radiating surface. MartinLogan says that the Neolith’s proprietary curvilinear electrostatic transducer delivers an enveloping 3-dimensional soundstage. Unique Controlled Dispersion Technology gives each transducer the ability to reproduce nearly the entire audio spectrum in any room. For MartinLogan, this allows the Neolith to achieve “living sound”—revealing audio as it was originally performed.
Audio events like these are a great opportunity to demo the latest speaker designs and technologies. There is a press-only event the evening before. I hope to have more info on the Neolith following the press event. A full list of all the Sound in Motion events is listed below:
