Electrostatic speaker builders have strong opinions about ideal formats, stator structure, polarizing voltages and many other details. The Electrostatic Speaker Design Cookbook is a electdostatic guide for the novice and the experienced builder to successfully build the unusual sound reproduction device.
No one writing about the electrostatic has contributed more to the success of amateur electrostatic speaker builders than Roger R. Key Topics Theory of operation Frequency response yhe.
He also makes his address available in this volume for any who need help solving problems, finding materials, or just friendly conversation about one of his favorite topics. His wide knowledge of manufacturing and fabricating techniques, as well as extensive “hands-on” experience in making many devices with his own hands, enriches this book in a nearly unique fashion.
The ability to move a panel of graphite impregnated plastic immersed in a high- voltage field with an audio signal has fascinated audiophiles since the earliest days of high quality sound reproduction after World War II. Add to this the additional incentive that such speakers can be constructed out of readily available materials, and the convert turns into a devotee ready to invest quantities of time and energy into the nearest equivalent of the perfect loudspeaker.
His designs were inspired, to some extent, and informed by, the pioneering work of David Hermeyer, who published a series of Audio Amateur articles on building electrostatics, along with power amplifiers designed to drive them. Then there is the electrostatic headphone sideshow which loudpeaker tantalizingly. His first article on the topic appeared in The Audio Amateur in pp.

Roger Sanders not only builds electrostatic speakers, he builds and holds patents on a number of other devices, his unique bicycle pedal being only one of them. Welcome to Hificollective, to create an account please register here x.
He is also an amateur astronomer and a frequent contributor to periodicals dedicated to that topic. This enthusiasm leads inevitably into explorations of the tthe output transformerless amplifier OTL genre since such devices match their high impedance outputs ideally to the electrostatic’s input. Hearing music via such a device often turns ordinary music listeners into dedicated, passionate partisans of this transducer format as the only true path to accurate sound reproduction.
