Relative air humidity on electrostat performance
Hello good people -
I sincerely doubt that I am the only person who has experienced this personality trait of electrostat speakers, that is, as the relative air humidity of the listening room increases/decreases through natural atmospheric changes the sound coming out of the speakers changes as well. In particular, as the humidity increases the sound becomes muddy, distant and diffuse - and takes more gain to reproduce a constant listenable level - and as it (the humidity) decreases the bass becomes much less noticable and the mids and highs are articulated to very high, and sometimes piercing, levels.
Now, I am a rather level-headed fellow and I do not let the above mentioned topic cause me to lose sleep. But what, if anything, outside of running a noisy dehumidifier either during or just before listening sessions can aid me in this dilemma? I mean, Lucinda Williams or Diana Krall deserve to be reproduced at the levels they are accorded to on a fairly consistant basis.
