Audio Exklusiv Electrostatic Loudspeakers
The P3.1 is a full-range electrostatic loudspeaker, that means the whole frequency range is reproduced by a stretched film panel without a dynamic subwoofer. Because things such as homogeneity, space reproduction and resolution can be reached in the best way with such a method we decided to use the same concept that had been applied for the legendary forerunner. The reference has of course been our legendary electrostatic loudspeaker P3. But some decisions had to be made and important points had to be improved and at the same time some prejudices had to be eliminated.
A new, very complex transformer improves the frequency response which is extended for one octave downwards. An impressing low bass, dry and outlined, but at the same time fundamental is an important characteristic of the new P3.1. At the same time we improved the phase progression and the distortion characteristics.
Maximum level and sensitivity:
Completely new developed panels with a modified foil (film), a new coating procedure and a greater spacing between foil and stator enable an important greater movement, considerably more level as well as lower sensitivity against dust (arcing). The P3.1 has become more resistant against attaching: even in this case there will be no damaging of the foil – this has be avoided by the modified assembly of the elements.
Furthermore the 3 parts of the elements have been combined into one unit – higher series stability, better bass and distortion properties as well as a considerably improved user-friendliness/service life are the results.
The old P3 was famous/infamous because of its demanding impedance and phase-characteristics! The new P3.1 however, is quite uncritical. The impedance in important ranges is always in a amplifier friendly range, and even in the high frequency area the impedance will not lie under approx. 2,5 Ohms.
Due to the Audio Exklusiv special circuit which drives delayed-action the vertical in high-range, mid-range and bass-range segmented foil, a cylinder wave is created which ensures considerably improved radiating characteristics. So you are not fixed on only one right listening position but you will have the whole listening pleasure in wider ranges.
