(Tel Aviv, Israel) and Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Blacksburg, Virginia), will develop an innovative electrostatic speaker
using a nanoscale active membrane based on graphene, achieving significant energy savings.
Of course, there are negatives to using an electrostatic design; the most significant is that electrostatic speakers
must be much larger than their dynamic counterparts to move the same amount of air.
The opportunity to audition a pair of electrostatic speakers
in my listening room presented itself.
"We went back to the drawing board on styling and performance," tells Carl Masters, Mechanical Designer at MartinLogan, "and designed these speakers to be as visually unobtrusive as possible while maintaining stunning sound, voice-matched to our electrostatic speakers
Quad electrostatic speakers
: These look like radiators but are actually vintage speakers.
in these cavities enable sound to be delivered effectively into both the living and family rooms.
