Key features of flat panel speakers
Final Audio made some major improvements in electrostatic loudspeaker technology.
Several major innovations.
Improved Performance, Lower distortion
Through the use of a proprietary technique, Final speakers embed the audio conductor deep inside the thin, 12-micron Mylar film used for the speaker diaphragm. This improves performance by virtually eliminating the distortion created by traditional electrostatic speakers that apply the delicate conductive coating to the top of the diaphragm. In addition to improving performance, the embedded design protects against scratches, dust, cigarette smoke, and other environmental damage, making it virtually indestructible.
Lightweight, Ultra-Thin Design
Final’s patented technology has revolutionized the high-performance audio marketplace by separating the speaker panel from the bulky driver electronics. The panels are art in themselves, 6 mm thin ( frame is 30 mm thin ) and lightweight enough to mount on the wall alongside the new generation of flat-panel plasma and LCD monitors. Since most of these top-of-the-line monitors don’t have speakers, Final is fast becoming the add-on speaker of choice for flat-panel plasma and LCD TVs – the perfect combination of high performance and elegant styling.
Final is the first company to “modularize” electrostatic technology. The benefits are enormous. Modularity allows a to start with two channels (basic stereo) and build up to any number of channels – with no limits.
Highest Resolution Possible
Final electrostatic loudspeaker have significantly lower distortion than conventional motor-driven cones and domes. The combination of low mass, high speed, and instant acceleration and deceleration, reproduces the audio signal as close to perfect as any speaker ever has. In the high-resolution digital future, this fact will become more important than ever. Electrostatic speaker technology is the perfect complement for DVD-Audio and SACD, two new high-resolution audio formats that are widely expected to replace CDs. Final’s patented electrostatic technology is to sound as HDTV is to video.
Flat vs. Curved Stators
Final believes that the stator assembly should be flat, not curved, in order to maintain a symmetrical push and pull on the diaphragm.
