Athena Technologies has just announced the release of a new 6 piece speaker system called the MICRA 6. This system was designed from the ground up to accomplish the goal of providing quality sound and value in a small, sleek, home theater flat screen solution.

The MICRA consist of four MS satellite speakers that feature a 3.5 inch long throw woofer platform, and a 1/2 inch tweeter. Flexible mounting hardware is included that allows the speaker to be wall or ceiling mounded. The speakers’ enclosure is formed from an injection molded resin that provides a light yet solid structure. All drivers are magnetically shielded. The MC is the matching center channel included in the system. It features a 1/2 inch tweeter and dual 3.5 inch woofers for added power handling and dynamic abilities. It is timbre matched to the MS satellites and comes with mounting hardware that also allows for numerous mounting options.

The set up is also simplified, like all Athena products. The M 225 subwoofer is is also included with the system. It features a 225 watt MOSFET amplifier, and a new design that allows it to complement most decors while taking up very little floor space. The vented 8 inch design is flat in response down to 27hz, however, athena claims it is capable of more actual bass output.

The subwoofer has its own filtering system build in, so the end user need only connect a single RCA jack from the receiver. The operating range of the sub is preset, allowing plug and play simplicity.

The MICRA system will begin shipping at the end of September, and has a suggested retail in the US of $549.99.
