While the vast majority of loudspeaker systems are designed around cone or dome transducers, in-line and planar loudspeaker arrays have always occupied a special niche in the high-end consumer market. The electrostatic loudspeaker (ESL) has been highly regarded, and in recent decades has made important strides in sensitivity, power handling, and directional control. In much the same vein, its electromagnetic equivalent, with its printed circuit voice coil positioned on a large diaphragm, has gained adherents.
