The Essence™ is no hybrid, it’s a full range electrostat. By using new materials, production techniques, and years of exhaustive experimentation, Essence™ has extended the low frequency capability of their Model 1200 down to 48 Hz by increasing the excursion of the diaphragm. This level performance has eluded engineers for decades, it is revolutionary, no other electrostat on the market can do it. The frequency response of the Model 1200 is ±3 dB from 48 Hz to 23 Khz.
AV industry-veteran Bob Rapoport, who is directing the sales and marketing, said “It’s not every day a new speaker comes along that pushes the art forward substantially, most improvements are incremental and fail to live up to their own hype.’
“This is different. The new Essence™ is full range, it reproduces the most important octaves of fundamental sound and delivers them to the listening position in a more focused way, creating what many call the ultimate listening experience because the stereo image is so precise, a result of more direct sound reaching the ears before the later reflections arrive. Another benefit of focusing the spectral energy at the sweet spot is the increase in clarity and resolution with no interference. Reflected sounds arrive too late and too low in level to upset the image or cause any disruptions in the response.” http://www.essenceelectrostatic.com/
“Because of its ultra low-mass single Mylar film diaphragm, it can turn the digital signal into sound much faster and 100 times cleaner than typical cone-in-a-box speakers, its moving mass is literally 1/100th the weight of the typical electro-magnetic transducer. Other models will include an LCR and larger panel sizes, due by the end of 2013.”
