Our dedicated in-house design and engineering team created the ultimate table-top speaker system in a sleek, compact design without compromising sound quality. Taking a no-compromise approach. The dense cabinet enclosure floats atop a sturdy aluminum stand and looks comfortably at home in any decor where aesthetics are as important as sound quality. A cleanly integrated, front mounted control panel allows access to power, input and volume controls. For across the room control, Crescendo includes a custom remote control built from black anodized extruded aluminum. At the core of the Crescendo is an advanced 24-bit 48kHz DSP (digital signal processing) based preamp in conjunction with a powerful 100-watt (140-watt peak) amp. Crescendo’s amp creates powerfully detailed sound from a custom designed front-firing 5×7-inch matte black polypropylene cone woofer in a non-resonant asymmetrical chamber format. Low frequencies are seamlessly blended with two of Martin Logan’s high-performance Folded Motion tweeters for an astonishing, room filling experience. The signature Folded Motion tweeters utilize extremely low mass diaphragms that “squeeze” air, and require significantly less excursion than the typical 1-inch dome tweeter, which drastically minimizes distortion while providing a lightning fast response time. The increased surface area also provides a wide, yet controlled sound dispersion to create a realistic and carefully etched sound stage. Crescendo is crafted with a solid MDF enclosure that strengthens and intensifies low-frequency bass performance while minimizing vibrations. To further enhance bass performance, Crescendo features an optional subwoofer output via an analog RCA connection. This option, not typical of tabletop speaker systems, customizes the crossover between the Crescendo and subwoofer to give true audiophiles the ability to supplement the low-frequency performance of their system.
