Atlantic Technology has redesigned its popular System 6200 home theater speaker line with improved cabinets, pared configuration options, and lower prices, while adding THX-Ultra2 certification. The new System 6200e line does away with optional side panels and pedestal subwoofers while offering a range of more flexible configuration options suitable to home theater or multi-channel audio installation.
"This system is a classic Atlantic Technology evolution: better looks, better performance, at a lower price," commented Atlantic Technology Director of Marketing Steve Feinstein.
Like its predecessor, the System 6200e offers much of the industry-leading performance of Atlantic's flagship System 8200e speaker line in a smaller form factor and at a lower price point. The 6200e LR and 6200e C speakers now feature conventional, permanently attached side panels in a satin black finish, eliminating the confusion in stocking and selling the previously optional cabinet panels. Additionally, the System 6200's original pedestal subwoofer systems have been replaced by the company's more traditional box-style THX Certified 642e SB subwoofers.
Atlantic Technology's 6200e LR floor-standing loudspeaker, and 6200 C horizontal center channel speakers are each two-way designs that are ideally timbre-matched for a coherent, seamless sound stage. Each speaker includes a sophisticated set of acoustic controls to tune performance for a variety of rooms and placement options, including High Frequency Energy adjustment for acoustically bright or dull rooms, a Location control to compensate for the acoustic effects of a pull-down screen, and a Boundary Compensation toggle that adjusts speaker output to compensate for placement near a wall or within a cabinet.
The Atlantic Technology System 6200e has been designed to integrate ideally with Atlantic's THX Certified system 4200e dipole surround speakers, delivering a completely convincing surround field. The system is available in a wide range of configurations for home theater multi-channel surround installations. Retail prices begin at $6,500 for a 5.1-channel system.
