The heart of the Clarity is a Generation 2 electrostatic transducer with an ultra-thin diaphragm that precisely tracks the input signal and flawlessly transmits clean powerful sound. MicroPerf™ stator design maximizes efficiency and dispersion of sound and also increases optical clarity.MartinLogan ClearSpars™ elegantly suspend the diaphragm between the stators and accentuate Clarity's exclusive transparent look providing incomparable sonic accuracy, efficiency, and dispersion. Clarity's unique NAC™ (Natural Ambience Compensation) driver extends full range reference level sound to the entire home theater audience, regardless of their location. A true audiophile solution, the NAC is parallel to the signal path and features an on/off switch to adjust for listener preference. Clarity's high-resolution aluminum woofer delivers extended bass detail with explosive power. Its low-voltage power supply simplifies installation and maximizes placement options.
The Clarity hybrid speaker system consists of a broad-range single element electrostatic transducer integrated with a quick response woofer. This approach takes advantage of the benefits that both technologies have to offer. Dispersion is a controlled 30 degrees. This was achieved by curving the electrostatic transducer element itself, an elegantly simple solution.
