Just under two weeks till we release these amazing new home audio speakers.
The teaser site is now up. It's been a long busy summer getting the working prototypes ready for the Taves show in Toronto next month.These were developed and made in Ottawa, Ontario. They have been my bosses vision for over ten years. They sound fantastic.

Interesting design.

The Acoustat speakers from the early 80's sounded good, but a bit brittle on cymbals.

Can I get them in woodgrain?

These fix the main problem with traditional electrotats a very small sweet spot. The panels are curved in two directions, not flat or curved in one direction. Three panels make up the top of each speaker for 360 degree coverage, so no matter where in the room you are they sound the same.

Woodgrain would look perty sweet. Not sure that will be an option. They will be offered in a bunch of colors still to be determined.

Not a fan, sorry I like the older Klipsh Cornwall's, they were huge, they were heavy and they were the best sounding speakers I have ever heard. The base was incredible and they even sounded good with the highs but they were way to big and the wife hated moving them every time she cleaned so with money being short at the time we sold them. if I ever buy another set of speakers it will be them and I will put wheels on them.

I wouldn't mind listening to these though, I am always open to new ideas, are they being sold here and if so where in Maine can I listen to them?

Not sure what the weight of these are, but moving them will be a two person job. They stand about 4 feet tall. The base is cast aluminum and the top I machined out of a solid piece of 6061 aluminum.

They have amps built in so you just plug them into a 110V outlet and you can input anything even a I-phone to run them.

Not sure how they will be sold or distributed yet. To early to tell.

Nice!

I am a big fan of "old school" speakers. Big azz towers in the corners, instead of a sub and a bunch of little speakers all over the room.

Although these are certainly not old school, they appeal to me.
Any idea on specs and price point? (I'm guessing "way too rich for my blood", but I've gotta ask.)

Regardless... Best of luck!!

Not sure of the final price. They will be a higher end speaker, since they are hand made and a lot of man hours to produce. The only thing similar on the market is $70,000, but they wont be near that.

Good luck on the launch of your new product. Probably out of my price range though.

I have Magneplanar electrostats as my main L/R front speakers in my 7.1 home theater. I've had them over 20 years.
Great dispersion in the room. They never seemed overly (sweet spot) directional to me. Like 'em!

Likely out of my reach, as well. Besides, wifey's mad enough for my new Atlantic Tech AT-1s and I'd say they're a darn sight smaller than these.

Have not had an opportunity to thoroughly audition a set of electrostats, but I haven't had enough juice to power them for a while, either. Used to have an Adcom GFA555 paired with a VanAlstine preamp, but now I have an Arcam integrated running the system.

Good luck. Always cheering for two channel!
