Executive Overview

Atlantic Technology has introduced its new LCR2 ultra compact speakers in white or high-gloss black finish for a wide variety of audio and home theater applications.  They seem to be going after the high value ultra compact form factor that so many ID companies already have successfully capitalized on for quite some time.

Just 8 inches tall, the Atlantic Technology LCR2 is the smallest speaker ever offered by the company, yet it is said to be a true high fidelity product that is designed to deliver excellent audio reproduction for smaller applications and to outperform competitors in its size category.

The front baffle is designed to reduce diffraction and enhance dispersion to ensure excellent timbre balance for music and maximum intelligibility on dialog. The ¾-inch silk dome tweeter offers exceptional upper-octave smoothness and dispersion. The audiophile-grade long-excursion 3½-inch woofer uses CPP (Composite Polypropylene/Paper) cones that deliver smooth bass response down to 100Hz. This frequency is more than deep enough for any accompanying subwoofer to be totally non-localizable.

The speakers have built-in keyhole brackets for wall or stand mounting, or can be placed on a shelf or tabletop. The speakers are sold singly, so customers are not forced to buy pairs if they want odd numbers of speakers.

Atlantic Technology LCR2 ultra compact speakers have a suggested retail price of $200 each.  At this price point, we'd have to say this speaker could really provide serious competition to the ID marketplace.

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 high-performance loudspeaker systems for music, home theater, and custom audio/video installation.  Tell us what you think in the related forum thread below.
