People often assume that MartinLogan was founded by a couple of guys named Martin and Logan, which is sort of true: Gayle Martin Sanders and Ron Logan Sutherland. MartinLogan “just sounded better than SandersSutherland,” Sanders explains. (Apparently they never considered GayleRon.)
The two met in the late ’70s at a high-end audio store Sanders managed in Lawrence, Kansas. Despite very different backgrounds—Sanders had trained in architecture and advertising, Sutherland in electrical engineering—they shared a passion for music and, they soon discovered, electrostatic loudspeakers.
Truth in Sound is the guiding philosophy of MartinLogan. Our mission is to use this unique and astonishing technology to render the most complex musical passages as faithfully to the original source as possible. If breathtaking, lifelike audio accuracy is important to you, you owe it to yourself to hear MartinLogan.
