He is also an amateur astronomer and a frequent contributor to periodicals dedicated to that topic. The ability to move a panel of graphite impregnated plastic loudspeakr in a high- coombook field with an audio signal has fascinated audiophiles since the earliest days of high quality sound reproduction after World War II.
Sanders does an outstanding job of exploring the compromises and tradeoffs required to reach a satisfying result. 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 and energy into the nearest equivalent of the perfect loudspeaker. Then there is the electrostatic headphone sideshow which beckons tantalizingly.
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 designed to drive them. In this book the author surveys all the alternatives and keeps clear about his own preferences, many of which are subjective.

Roger Sanders not only builds electrostatic speakers, he builds and holds patents vesign a number of other devices, his unique bicycle pedal being only one of them. 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.
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.
Sanders has founded an interest group for electrostatic enthusiasts with a worldwide membership. Key Topics Theory of operation Frequency response of.
Electrostatic speaker builders have strong opinions about ideal formats, stator structure, polarizing voltages and many other details. He also makes his address available in this volume for any who need help solving problems, finding materials, or just friendly loudspealer about one of his favorite topics.
