What is an electrostatic loudspeaker?
An electrostatic loudspeaker has a very thin, 6 micron, movable diaphragm that is driven by an electrostatic force.
The diaphragm is placed between two perforated fixed electrodes. The Mylar diaphragm is provided with a weak conductive layer.
The electrical charge on the diaphragm is kept at a constant level by a High Voltage Unit (HVU) and a resistor.
Unlike a conventional dynamic speaker, an electrostatic: - Has a large radiating surface. Typically,
this is 100 times larger than that of a conventional tweeter. This results in considerably
less intermediation distortion, which in turn causes the overall sound effect to be much more in balance.
- Has a moving part, the diaphragm, whose mass is almost negligible and, moreover, whose entire surface is driven.
