Default Electrostatic speakers

Hello Chaps

I have just finished my 3 year long project of building a pair of electrostatic loudspeakers. After dragging in a few engineers and a lifetime of favours I'm very happy with the result and we are going to try and sell them if we get good reviews from critics that come and listen.

If you have any questions please let me know - Im not here to sell just to give back.

Nice work, indeed. Personally I also like electrostatic speakers. I own a pair of Martin Logan SL3.

Yes, we got some single sided fr2 and had it etched then we built a punching machine for it as there's 20,000 holes in each one.
