Ceramic Electrostatic Speakers

Ceramic – the special feature of MiTec Electrostats

MiTec Ceramic Electrostatic Speakers are condenser speakers. By combining specially produced components and a high quality assembly we can open the door to previously unknown musicality. The chain for music reproduction starts with the use of condenser microphones in the studio and now ends with reproduction by MiTec condenser speakers. MiTec Ceramic Electrostatic Speakers complete the musical circle in the reproduction of sounds.

Comparison with other speaker systems

MiTec Ceramic Electrostatic Speakers differ from conventional closed boxes or horn systems by working without a cabinet. The visible cabinet is only a frame, holding the electrostatic panels in a listening position. Our speakers are open dipole speakers. The lack of cabinets results in a totally resonance free reproduction of the music signal. This finally leads to a linear sound pressure distribution and neutral reproduction of the source music signal.

Speaker Physics

MiTec Ceramic Electrostatic Speakers use the physical property of impulse containment at its best. The huge difference of weight between the diaphragm and the stators results in high efficiency of impulse transformation. The maximum amount of electric energy from the musical input signal is transformed into sound pressure. The very low weight of the diaphragm results in an exact impulse reproduction. The music sounds life like with real concert dynamics.


Composition and Function of the Electrostatic Speakers

MiTec Ceramic Electrostatic Speakers work as fully symmetrical push-pull systems. They have geometrical and electrical symmetry. The diaphragm consists of an extremely thin foil, which has been vacuum coated. It is long term UV resistant and free of any ageing effects. It is fixed between the stators with a defined tension. The stators are reinforced by ceramic cubes. The diaphragm is carrying the electric load. The music signal is an AC signal submitted by cable connections to the stators. This provides power to the diaphragm and results into movement causing sound. The advantage of this principle is the very low weight of the diaphragm and its big size. The very small diaphragm amplitude required results in an extremely short start-stop reaction. Our Electrostatic Speakers are able to reproduce music with a frequency range of 9-10 octaves in this way. They are Full-Range Electrostatic Speakers.

Ceramic Components

MiTec Ceramic Electrostatic Speakers use the properties of industrial ceramics to maximise impulse reproduction and dynamic range. The aluminium oxide ceramic is welded by an adhesive and a heat treatment procedure with an acrylic frame construction. The electric energy of the music signal can be transformed into sound pressure according to the physical law of impulse containment with a minimum loss of energy.

Employment of Nanotechnology

MiTec Ceramic Electrostatic Speakers use the modern facilities of High Vacuum Technology to create
conductive Nano-layers on the diaphragm. They can carry high electric loads with extraordinarily constant distribution. The result is a homogenous driving force all over the diaphragm leading to low distortion and crystal clear music production.
