POPORI ACOUSTICS WR1 ELECTROSTATIC SPEAKERS

For nearly 20 years, Popori Acoustics has made custom-made electrostatic speakers exclusively. The WR1 (36 000.- Euro Price/pair incl. Hungarian VAT) debuts as the brand’s first series product. The new model is the result of 25 years of design experience, precise design and perfect workmanship. Production, using the most modern technologies and the best possible materials and components, remains the work of careful hands. And the result takes you where the music comes from.

THE SOUL...

To dream of music that comes alive by musicians and instruments is a true wonder.  Our speaker is designed to belong with the miracle of the sound of music and for music lovers alike.

THE BODY

The structural elements of WR1 are made of Corian and Kerrock solid surface material. This is the ideal material to shape the body of the speaker, acoustically and statically. The base is made of CNC machined solid steel legs and 6mm thick laser cut steel sheet. Its weight of 18 kg ensures adequate stability and center of gravity.

The membrane material is UV-resistant, moderately heat-resistant, humidity independent, which ensures long-term operation. This membrane weighs much less than the membrane of speakers made with other technologies on the market. Thanks to the push-pull electrostatic operating principle, its efficiency is extraordinary.

Properly tuned and attenuated construction guarantees low distortion of the radiated sound which provides the opportunity for perfect sound reproduction.

The panels are fixed with screws. The disadvantages of gluing are eliminated at all points where it can cause deterioration or even loss of sound quality and performance over time.

THE STRING TECHNOLOGY

The use of string technology allows the speaker to be built as accurately as possible. And this is a condition for creating the perfect sound.

The distance between the membrane and the stator is crucial for sound quality and performance. Inaccuracy is not acceptable.

Stretched strings and foil are guaranteed to be straight and precise CNC machining guarantees parallelism.

This creates the perfect static field which ensure the uncompromising performance at all points on the panel.
