Digital Power Amplifier

Music as it has been recorded!
What holds true for the Solo power amplifier is even more true for the loudspeakers in your system. Electrostatic speakers offer an openness and transparency that is simply not possible with conventional cone designs due to the laws of physics. Very few people who have purchased electrostatics will go back to using conventional cone speakers after hearing what they've been missing.
The stereo placement of electrostatics is far superior to that of regular speakers. The sound of regular boxed cone drivers never seems to leave the speaker. In electrostatics the stereo image is fluid between and beyond the panels, it is something you really have to hear yourself.
The gently curved design avoids the high frequency beaming normally associated with a large screen full range design. These true full- range loudspeakers do not have any crossover or cone drivers to muddy the sound. Hear what you've been missing! These speakers are best suited for high-end audio setups where transparency, musicality, and imaging are of paramount importance.
All speakers are hand built in the USA to customer specification and can therefore be customized with respect to size, color and finish to suit a particular request. Please contact us with your requests and personal needs.
From a technical point of view an electrostatic loudspeaker is just a thin membrane in between two perforated steel plates. The magic is in the coating of the membrane in order to hold charge. Many people and professional brands use graphite, liquid soap, PVA glue, nylon solution, a conducting polymer or an anti-static spray (also a conducting polymer). We use metalized foil after years of extensive tests and in our opinion there is no downside, we cannot hear or measure a quality difference. A big benefit of using metalized foil is that all of the issues with wetting the membrane and any environmental factors like extremely dry (an issue with nylon coating) or moist air are completely avoided.
Specifications are dependant on the size of speaker chosen. The speakers typically range in size from 2' - 3' wide and 5' - 7' high.
