MartinLogan is now shipping its Theos hand-built (but affordable) electrostatic speaker. The Theos has a real wood finish and custom bi-wire capable binding posts
The 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 received careful mechanical engineering to achieve the manufacturer’s characteristic 30-degree controlled dispersion pattern. Engineers reduced the gauge thickness of the line’s steel stators, which achieves the desired arc, and also drastically increases the visual transparency of the panel.
Theos also features custom bi-wire capable binding posts. This offers flexibility in amplifier selection and connectivity ranging from single wired solid state systems to bi-amplified tube installations.
Theos’ features include:
- CLS XStat electrostatic transducer
- Ultra-rigid AirFrame
- Fully passive design
- 8-inch aluminum cone woofer in a bass reflex design
- Precision built Vojtko crossover network boasting advanced ML topology
- Custom bi-wire toolless binding posts
- Custom ETC spikes
- Real wood finish options
Initial shipments of Theos will be offered in three hand-rubbed real-wood finishes, including black ash, dark cherry, and zebrawood. U.S. retail price is $4,995 per pair for standard finishes.
