If HIGHS are here can LOWS be far behind? - Electrostatic Speaker Article 1958

Interesting article on Pickering electrostatic Isophase speaker. This article features Jean Shephard Americas story teller. You may know him from the script and voice of the Christmas Story. Jean Shepherd was a radio host and HAM radio enthusiast. Many of his radio shows were about HiFi and related subjects.

1929 Electrostatic Loud Speakers

 Here is a very early article from Radio Broadcasting 1929. I didn't realize electrostatics went this far back.

JansZen Electrostatics

A local store has a few audio rarities in stock. These Janszen speakers are beautiful. I can't find them in any Janszen material. There is no model number but likely Z-something.  
The grill clothe and trim look very cool. 

 This is what is in side a 12 inch woofer and two electrostatic panels. I was very surprised at the sound. They were very nice.
 These are Janszen Z-900's. The specs say 38hz-22,000hz +-1db which I find hard to believe. I really like the cabinets on these with a little repair and work they could be amazing. Each cabinet is two of the above speakers two sets of electrostatic panels and two twelve inch woofers. 

 The panels are rated 700hz - 30,000 hz. I'm going to have to grab a pair of these for testing.

Baltik or Blaltik Electrostatic Speakers

 I have been researching these Baltik electrostatics from I suppose Russia correction Latvia but can't find very much info on them.  If you recognize these or have additional information please comment on this post. These are very cool looking speakers. They look like they were made in the late 70's or early 80's but that is another guess.
