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.

ATC SCM150ASLT LE Loudspeaker System with P6 Amplifier

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.
