ATC’s Award-Winning Loudspeakers Will Be Cheaper in 2023?

ATC’s 2023 U.S. retail price sheet has been released and the entire lineup is going to be less expensive this year.

The post-pandemic economy has not been kind to a lot of high-end audio manufacturers; price increases became the norm with some brands increasing the retail sticker price by over 30%. Supply chain and shipping issues caused long delays for products and components that utilized chips were hit even harder; that shortage has now turned into a supply glut and companies are concerned that a recession will leave them with inventory they can’t sell.

ATC’s situation seems to have turned around based on communication that we received earlier today.

A quick look through the 2023 price sheets reveals that their speakers will be less expensive starting next week. Or returning to pre-pandemic prices?

We were interested to know how this was possible with the current market uncertainty and reached out to Leland Leard​, of Lone Mountain Audio (US Distributor for ATC) for some clarification.

How are you able to lower prices so significantly?

“Our freight costs are 1/5 what they were a couple of months ago. The dollar has increased its strength against the pound. And we’re finally beginning to see less freight damage, though I hesitate to mention this, as I don’t want to jinx us. Our goal is to maintain these prices throughout 2023. Wish us luck.”

We currently have a pair of ATC SCM40A under review which you will be able to read about in January.
