Atlantic Technology AT-2 Loudspeaker HT Labs Measures

HT Labs Measures

Sensitivity: 85 dB from 500 Hz to 2 kHz

This graph shows the quasi-anechoic (employing close-miking of all woofers) frequency response of the AT-2 (purple trace). The passive loudspeaker was measured with grill at a distance of 1 meter with a 2.83-volt input.

The AT-2’s listening-window response (a five-point average of axial and +/–15-degree horizontal and vertical responses) measures +2.56/–2.75 decibels from 200 hertz to 10 kilohertz with the tweeter level switch set to “0.” An average of axial and +/–15-degree horizontal responses measures +2.30/–2.58 dB from 200 Hz to 10 kHz. The –3dB point is at 41 Hz, and the –6dB point is at 38 Hz. Impedance reaches a minimum of 6.13 ohms at 158 Hz and a phase angle of –51.20 degrees at 84 Hz. —MJP

but $1800 for the pair? My Polk LSi-9 (first generation) were $800 cheaper and simply kick butt in the bass department for a stand mount speaker. The only time I want for a subwoofer is for the LFE of a movie as the bass from my Polks can literally rattle shelves. Maybe the Atlantic Technology is really worth $1800 :-) I'd like to hear them.

Personally, I am surprised the "Value" rating was only 4 out of 5 starts. I am listening to these speakers as I type this, and honesty I have NEVER heard bookshelf speakers that outperforms these! Some might image the soundstage a little better, or have a little smoother highs, but overall, I would put these speakers in the top 1% overall! I have, in the past, sold speakers that cost twice as much or more, and they didn't sound as good as these!

The Polk LSi-9s referenced in the last comment are indeed excellent speakers...but if you put them against the AT-2s they will get blown away!

If you are shopping for new bookshelf speakers, either for home theater or stereo use, these speakers should DEFINITELY be on your short list!
