As always, any project in electronic design is a series of choices balanced between goals and limitations. This enthusiasm leads inevitably into explorations of the legendary output transformerless amplifier OTL genre since such devices match their high impedance outputs ideally to the electrostatic’s input.
The Electrostatic Speaker Design Cookbook is a complete guide for the novice and the experienced builder to successfully build the unusual sound reproduction device. Roger Sanders not only builds electrostatic speakers, he builds and holds patents on a number of other devices, his unique bicycle pedal being only one of them.
His first article on the topic appeared in The Audio Amateur in pp.
Electrostatic speaker builders have strong opinions about ideal formats, stator structure, polarizing voltages and many other details. His wide knowledge of manufacturing and fabricating techniques, as well as extensive “hands-on” experience in making many devices with his own hands, enriches this book in a nearly unique fashion.
Sanders does an outstanding job of exploring the compromises and tradeoffs required to reach a satisfying result.

Electrostatic Loudspeaker Design Cookbook by Roger R Sanders – code 5002
The ability to move a panel of graphite impregnated plastic immersed in a high- voltage field with an audio signal has fascinated audiophiles since the earliest days of high electtostatic sound reproduction after World War II.
Hearing music via such a device often turns ordinary music listeners into dedicated, passionate partisans of this transducer format as the only true path to accurate sound reproduction.
Then there is the electrostatic headphone sideshow which beckons tantalizingly. He also makes his address available in this volume for any who need help solving problems, finding materials, loufspeaker just friendly conversation about one of his favorite topics. Sanders has founded an interest group for electrostatic enthusiasts with a worldwide membership.

Add to this the additional incentive that such speakers can be constructed out of readily available materials, and the convert turns into a devotee ready to invest quantities of time loudspeaier energy into the nearest equivalent of the perfect loudspeaker. No one writing about the electrostatic has contributed more to the success of amateur electrostatic speaker builders than Roger R.
His designs were inspired, to some extent, and informed by, the pioneering work of David Hermeyer, who published a series of Audio Amateur articles on building electrostatics, along with power amplifiers loudapeaker to drive them.
