Auspicious Debuts

Sanders Sound Systems Model 10E

Like its recent forbears, the Sanders Model 10E ($17,000) mates a single (non-segmented) electrostatic panel with a transmission line-loaded dynamic bass driver. As previously, the package includes a digital electronic crossover and the Colorado company’s own Magtech amplifier. What’s new is DSP room correction. The Sanders “Loudspeaker Management System” comprises the room-correction software, a “Real Time Analyzer” that measures the frequency response of the speaker in the room, and the digital crossover—no outboard computer is required for implementation. A short audition was very impressive in transparency, speed, and dynamics. Imaging was practically tactile and, in the hostile environment of a hotel room, bass was well controlled.
