Classic gear from yesteryear; vintage audio standing the test of time.

Answer

Is there a separate step/up/down amplifier needed to power them?

Step up transformers are used to generate the high voltage bias.

Electrostats tend to pose a more demanding load than most, but regular amps work just fine.

I use an Emotiva amp in the HT driving Acoustats and VTL tube amps in the main system driving the Sound Labs.
