Deliver hardware (foil, coating, adhesive, high voltage

! What we cannot do and what we will never do !
We cannot , and we will not, repair physically broken original hardware like eg. frames
or un-repairable PCBs. We have to order these items as spare
parts from the original manufacturer, if available. If not
available, the speakers will be declared by us as "beyond
repair", in the sense of bringing them back to original.
The only thing remaining, will be to bring the speakers back to
work. Not more but nonetheless not less. And that " not less" we
stand for.. .. and it still is and will be our successful
work for fully bringing back to life your beloved treasures
We will never work and have our fingers in any kind of broken
special electronics, except EHTs, We will give these things to
the original manufacturer for repair or for providing
appropriate original spare parts/units.
Neither can we give you any information by phone, by mail or any
other way on how to get repaired the speakers by
yourself , especially concerning the high voltage danger. Nevertheless,
surfing our web sites you will find technological background
informations on how to repair your electrostatic panels.
For example some hints on using coating, and how to
stretch ESL diaphragms. But you really should keep your
finger off the HV power supply. 5kV to 10kV is not that
much a playground for DIYers in the very early years of their
life. Please be careful. Keep your hands off from that
stuff, if you are not really very well knowing what you are
doing. BANG.The speakers will be off the
play forever and you could be as well.
cannot give you any complete schematics, diagrams or manuals for
DIY repair. Nor can we and will we ever offer so called
repair kits,. That would be senseless, because
we cannot send you our stretching jig. Instead, please find and
use our special Shackman-reromanus DIY ESL parts and appropriate
materials like foil or adhesive for your own repair
