MartinLogan is now shipping Theos, a hand-built electrostatic speaker with real wood finishes and custom bi-wire capable binding posts.
Theos features a passive 8-inch high excursion woofer and an ultra-low turbulence down-firing bass port.
Theos features a passive 8-inch high excursion woofer and an ultra-low turbulence down-firing bass port, providing detailed bass down to 43Hz.
The 9.2-inch wide by 44-inch tall XStat electrostatic transducer (speaker panel) on the Theos features MartinLogan’s 30-degree controlled dispersion pattern. To accomplish this, MartinLogan engineers reduced the gauge thickness of Theos’s steel stators, which not only achieves the desired arc, but also drastically increases the visual transparency of the panel.
Borrowing from the name of MartinLogan’s chief audio technologist, Joe Vojtko, the Theos uses Advanced Vojtko Filtering. This proprietary audiophile quality network is hand-built using precision point-to-point wiring, polypropylene capacitors, massive air-core coils, and a custom wound toroidal audio transformer.
For ease of installation, Theos also features a low-voltage DC power supply that eliminates the need for a traditional, heavy IEC power cord.
Initial shipments of Theos will be offered in three hand-rubbed real-wood finishes including black ash, dark cherry, and zebrawood. Custom finishes are also available through authorized dealers.
U.S. retail price is $4,995 per pair for standard finishes.
