Why create electrostatic speakers when conventional speakers are so much easier to design and build? Clearly, this is a question that could only be asked by someone who has never been held spellbound listening to an electrostat.
Electrostatic speakers are uniquely capable of an extraordinary and compellingly realistic performance with unmatched clarity and three-dimensional sonic imaging (often referred to as ‘sound staging’ by audiophiles). MartinLogan electrostatic panels have two basic elements: a thin, conductively coated diaphragm with a large surface area and two charged, perforated metal stators. The diaphragm is suspended between the stators. An amplifier’s signal, when applied to the stators, creates a strong electrostatic field that moves the diaphragm back and forth, exciting the air and transmitting sound. While in theory all of this might sound relatively simple, in truth, there is an art and science to making this work practically, effortlessly, and reliably. This has been MartinLogan’s great contribution—our quest for audio perfection.
Best of Both Worlds
Electrostatic panels are perfect for reproducing sounds above 200 Hz. However, both the size and the power requirements of deep bass frequencies are best served by traditional cone woofers. As a result and with few exceptions, every MartinLogan electrostatic speaker is a hybrid design. Ideal crossover frequencies, phase and amplitude optimized Vojtko™ crossover networks, and critically damped woofers ensure a seamless transition between the two sound reproduction philosophies. The resulting speakers offer the best of both worlds.
What is Truth?
Truth in Sound is much more than a catch phrase, it’s our philosophy: MartinLogan speakers are designed to render the most complex musical passages as faithfully as a prism disperses the color spectrum.
Early in our history, Inc. magazine recognized MartinLogan as one of the 500 fastest growing privately held companies in the United States. Soon after, MartinLogan released the world’s first electrostatic center and on-wall surround speakers, establishing the company as a major player in the emerging home theater market. Today, MartinLogan is a premier brand on the international stage. We are a loudspeaker technology company producing electrostatic designs, nonelectrostatic designs, personal audio, and architectural speakers for inside walls and ceilings. We also provide all-weather speakers, bringing MartinLogan sound outside, pool-side, or in the yard while relaxing or entertaining family and friends.
Take a moment, sit down, listen to a MartinLogan speaker, and forever change the way you listen. Truth in sound will do that.
