 ESS Laboratories has been an industry leader since the mid-1970s. The company has recently relocated its facilities in Southern California and is proud to announce the introduction of its enhanced ESS-Heil Air-Motion Transformer. The original air-motion transformer was created by the noted German physicist, Oskar Heil, and his patent was assigned to ESS for production in the United States. ESS is the only officially licensed manufacturer of AMT Air Motion Transformer technology. The key to the system is the design of its patented, double-sided diaphragm and its magnetic components that concentrates the sound unknown in conventional transducers. The sound signal moves five times faster than the air-motion of a conventional cone driver. The sound is superior to any other sonic transducer available on the market with superb dynamic range, producing sound as clear as light, with quality the near equivalent of actually being in the concert hall. Products using the Heil methodology include: Speakers ranging from the entry level AMT 6″ RM II-6 to the 12″ AMT Series Speaker with a special Limited Edition at the top of the line The 422H Heil AMT Hybrid Headphones, with two drivers, one being the first Heil driver ever utilized in headphones. With one full-range custom-designed moving coil driver the outstanding 252 conventional cans do not sound conventional at all. Find out how all this is possible when Ricky gives the history and future of ESS.

Eastwind Import will be on hand to offer carefully selected vinyl and CDs for sale. A delicious lunch will be served. A raffle is planned. Parking is ample and free. Guests, visitors and members alike are invited.  For more information call President and CEO Mike Wechsberg at (714) 906-9780.
