Some prominent folks think so. We recently auditioned the Quad ESL-2905, their latest electrostatic loudspeaker in a series going back to 1957. Highly impressive. Quoting Quad, "With possibly the lowest distortion of any loudspeaker, the ESL can be enjoyed for hours on end without fatigue; never adding or subtracting from the original recording. Even at low volume levels, they retain the full detail and drama of the music. In short, the Quad ESL technology is unique in its clarity of sound, lack of distortion, lack of interference and continuity of response."
