MartinLogan unveiled a prototype of its planned statement-class hybrid electrostatic speaker during the High End Munich show.
The Neolith features a 22x48-inch curvilinear electrostatic transducer, marking the company’s largest electrostatic radiating surface to date. The proprietary transducer is promoted as delivering “an enveloping three-dimensional soundstage.”
Pricing, availability and specs will be available at a later date, the company said.
The electrostatic panel is combined with a 15-inch rear-firing ported woofer and a 12-inch front-firing sealed mid-bass woofer to deliver bass down to 23Hz. Its fully passive design enables biamplification.
Neolith is built with a super-dense composite material to create a high-mass baffle that minimizes cabinet vibrations, the company noted.
The handcrafted speaker will be available in a variety of custom luxury paint finishes.
