Our business is
located thirty miles east of Cleveland, in the small community of Chardon Ohio.
My previous avocation was as a computer network consultant for Novell and
Microsoft NT networking operating systems for twenty plus years.
My hobby has always
been audio electronics from the mid sixties mostly building loudspeaker and
vacuum tube equipment. I started tinkering with computers in 1977 and opened a
computer business in 1979. First it was a mail order business, and then it
expanded into retail stores until the early nineties, the next ten years went on
to computer network consulting up until March of 2001 when I retired from the
computer business.. Although I truly enjoyed that time in my life, I wonted to
slow down and get out of the fast lane and had been making plans to do so for
many years. My plains were to go back to my greatest passion which is audio and
spent the last fifteen years polish my skills learning about every detail of the
My real interest lies in electrostatic speakers. The electrostatic speakers are
just better, overall sound reproducers—period! To adopt a quotation from the
late great Peter Walker of Quad electrostatic fame "Each electrostatic design is
perfect, but some designs are more perfect then others.” I have been putting my
full time effort into electrostatic speaker design repair.
To date I have built and sold hundreds of electrostatics loudspeakers, ESL
panels, hundreds of step-up transformers, bias supplies and crossovers along
with repair of most major brands. I wind my own prototype ESL step-up
transformers with our Switzerland made Meteor Model ME-301 winding machine. Our
transformer designs are then wound to our specifications by a company that been
in the transformer winding business since 1948.
My goal was to produce the very best sound quality at the most reasonable cost.
I believe have been successful at achieving this goal and have been and
marketing these products over the last seven years selling directly to customers
on a limited scale.
I own or have owned most of the electrostatic loudspeakers on the market, and
currently have set of my own design along with Quads, ESS Super Quads, KLH,
Martin Login, Acoustats and Janszen speakers not to mention the many I have
sold. I also have also owned hundreds of high end dynamic speakers from A to Z.
I still do some custom speaker building of electrostatic and dynamics which also
includes crossover and cabinet design. I use software from LinearX, as well as
LMS (Loudspeaker Measurement System) for speaker SPL, impedance, FFT and other
