 Sound LAB
Sound-Lab has been in business since 1978 and is headquartered near Salt Lake City, Utah, in the U.S.A. Thier primary focus has been on research, development and manufacturing state-of-the-art electrostatic speakers.

 

 

 
 Sound
The Sound LAB speakers are very accurate, very detailed, with a flat frequency  response and with a very wide and tall sweet spot.

 

 

 

 

 
 Technology
The way Sound Lab speakers work is that basically they use a modulated voltage to move a large thin membrane stretched over lots of charged panels (vertical strips) back and forth, very quickly, in response to the signal from the amplifier, and these vibrations are what cause sound to be generated. It is the thinness of the membrane, much thinner than the average cone speaker, makes it able to respond immediately to the slightest musical nuance. The large the size of the membrane and its curvature makes the sound-staging and imaging very realistic and forgiving of listener position. Additionally, the fact that this just one large single driver that requires no crossover circuitry, a frequent cause of distortion and other problems in most if not all full-range speakers today, also helps make the sound extremely pure and clear sounding. All in all a technology tour-de-force.
