Electrostatic Loudspeaker (ESL) Technology

Created: Aug 24 2018 | Updated: Aug 24 2018

An electrostatic transducer has three basic components - stators, diaphragm, and spars (spacers) - assembled as a sandwich. We explain how each of these components work to create the magical MartinLogan sound for which our electrostatic speakers are known.

Uncompromising performance. Unflinching accuracy. Unwavering reliability. Harnessing the myriad technical advantages of electrostatic principles to recreate sound in its truest form—this is what MartinLogan is all about.
