One Pair Left - Zebra Wood
Sharing with its PoweredForce™ counterpart Ethos, a unique XStat™ transducer was developed to exclusively address specific mechanical requirements. Vertically identical in size and dispersion to the flagship Summit™ X, Theos' thinner 9.2-inch (23cm) horizontal panel dimension required a tighter curve to achieve MartinLogan's distinct 30-degree dispersion pattern. To accomplish this MartinLogan engineers reduced the gauge thickness of the steel stators. The reduced gauge does not alter performance characteristics of Theos' electrostatic panel. However, as a natural byproduct of tighter build tolerances, visual transparency of the panel is increased significantly. Theos' new XStat panel is so visually transparent that it nearly vanishes when you're sitting and listening.
Bi-wirable Tool-less Binding Posts and Low-Voltage Power Supply
MartinLogan's proprietary tool-less binding posts simplify cable connection and management. Two sets are supplied—one connected to the electrostatic panel and the other feeding the woofer. Listeners can choose to vertically/horizontally bi-amp the Theos, allowing the listener to use a separate amp to drive the 8" woofer, or use jumper clips between the binding post sets for a single wire-connection. Theos is the only model in the Reserve Series to feature bi-wirable binding posts and provide the ultimate level of flexibility for connection and setup. To further simplify setup and cable management, the Theos features a low-voltage DC power supply eliminates the need for a traditional, heavy IEC power cord.
