Atlantic Technology is now shipping a significantly redesigned version of its FS-7 seven-channel home theater sound bar with a new look, improved acoustics, and higher performance.
Atlantic Technology has redesigned its FS-7 seven-channel home theater sound bar as well as the 125-watt SB-900 subwoofer.
Like its predecessor, the new Atlantic Technology FS-7.1 has seven speaker-level inputs, allowing for simple and direct connection to any seven-channel home theater receiver. The surround drivers are now angled forward for improved surround-sound effects in rooms even when the listening room doesn’t have nearby side walls.
The company also revoiced the crossover for smoother, more accurate sound and improved power-handling capabilities. It also boasts both keyhole and threaded inserts for easy mounting.
"The original seven-channel FS-7 soundbar was an instant hit," said Atlantic Technology's president, Peter Tribeman, "because it was, and still is, the world’s first and only seven-channel soundbar. Customers loved the simple hook-up and the sound was great, but a few thought it relied too much on side walls for surround. Well, the new design resolves that and it looks even better.
"Like its predecessor, the FS-7.1 works best with a subwoofer, and Atlantic Technology upgraded that too. The new 125-watt SB-900 subwoofer has a more powerful amplifier than the 100-watt SB-800, and an improved limiter that gives it the ability to play louder. Together, the FS-7.1 and SB-900 deliver a simple and highly capable two-box solution for outstanding 7-channel home theater."
The FS-7.1 and SB-900 are both available now, with MSRPs of $950 and $350 respectively.
