A midsized rear-ported bookshelf, featuring a 5.25” low-frequency transducer and a folded motion high frequency transducer, which MartinLogan claims replicates much of the performance of their high-end elecrostatic speakers. May need to be paired with a subwoofer if sub-60Hz bass is a priority.

The tower version of the B652-AIR. Like the bookshelf version, it's a great value, with dual 6.5” woofers and an electrostatic tweeter at a previously unheard of price point. They're a bit shorter than most towers, but don't seem to suffer from any off-axis effects when used directly on the floor.
