Atlantic Technologys New Low-Cost Home Theater Speakers Show Sonic Kinship to High-End Systems

System 920 home theater speaker system delivers Atlantic Technology’s signature sound at a surprisingly affordable price.

NORWOOD, MA (11/09/04) — Atlantic Technology today announced the introduction of the System 920 home theater speaker system that establishes a new performance benchmark for compact subwoofer-satellite designs while demonstrating its obvious sonic lineage to the company’s acclaimed high-end systems. The system employs five identical two-way mini-satellites and a compact long-throw sealed subwoofer to deliver engaging multichannel sound without monopolizing either living space or the customer’s budget. A 5.1-channel system in attractive black satin finish has a retail price of just $899.

The System 920 satellite speakers are true two-way systems, each featuring a 4-inch GLH (Graphite Loaded Homopolymer) cone woofer that delivers clean and linear bass response down to 100 Hz–the critical frequency for proper blending with the subwoofer. The high end reproduction is handled by a 1-inch soft dome tweeter with a powerful neodymium magnet. The drivers are mounted in an acoustically inert, sealed MDF enclosure, and are magnetically shielded to prevent interference with video equipment.

For deep bass reproduction, the System 920 features the new model 102 SB subwoofer. This sealed-box design employs a down-firing 8-inch bass driver powered by a conservatively-rated 100 Watt class AB amplifier. Unlike most similarly-priced and -sized subwoofers which use light-duty woofers with small motor assemblies, the 102 SB driver uses a massive vented magnet structure and an oversized high-temperature voice coil to make the most effective use of power possible. Atlantic’s exclusive Clear Filter Technology assures clean, powerful, articulate bass reproduction regardless of playback level.

Atlantic Technology’s System 920 is designed for maximum placement and mounting flexibility in any environment. The attractive satellites and compact subwoofer are available in either black satin or optional silver metallic finish. The satellites are just slightly taller than 8-inches, and under 6-inches wide and deep, and can be mounted on bookshelves, stands, or directly to the wall using the rear-panel keyhole bracket or threaded insert. The satellites feature the company’s signature detachable magnetic metal grill, originally developed for the company’s $20,000 flagship System 8200.

The System 920 will be available in early December at a suggested retail of $899 for a complete Satin Black 5.1 subwoofer/satellite system. The 102 SB subwoofer will also be available separately at a suggested retail price of $375.

From its inception in 1989, Atlantic Technology’s mission has been to produce home entertainment products that exemplify the very best in both performance and value. The company specializes in complete high-performance multi-channel speaker systems, state-of-the-art home theater electronics components, and products for custom audio/video installation.
