    Title: “Recent developments in electrostatic loudspeakers and their associated electronics”

    Synopsis: Despite the increasing popularity of wireless loudspeakers with built-in amplifiers and DSPs, there is still a demand from purists in the high-end audio market for passive loudspeakers so that they can choose their partnering equipment. The challenge is how to create magic from 2-channel stereo using passive analogue circuitry. In this presentation, we describe an electrostatic loudspeaker that is designed to spread the sound out in all directions so that the reflected sound correlates with the direct to improve the stereo image and to create the sense of spaciousness experienced at a live performance.
