Source is the world's most affordable high -performance hybrid electrostatic loudspeaker.

An 8 -inch woofer, MiniETC™ (Energy Transfer Coupler) spikes, and high -end crossover engineering further reinforce Source's high -end pedigree. The result? A stellar performer at an exceptional price.

MartinLogan's advanced AirFrame™ technology and MicroPerf Generation 2 diaphragm electrostatic transducer cover the audible acoustic range with unprecedented high -frequency accuracy and low -level sonic detail. A perfectly integrated, MartinLogan engineered high -resolution 8 -inch woofer supplies an authoritative bass performance with extreme precision.

State -of -the -art audio transformer and crossover engineering ensure a transparent link from amplifier to electrostatic panel and woofer. Source's crossover employs a proprietary Vojtko™ topology for vanishingly low distortion and seamless driver integration.
