About Our High-End Audio Showroom

Room acoustics are a critical factor in the what you hear. Most dealers operate in rooms that have never been acoustically measured and have significant bass issues. When you listen to a new component in such a space what are you really hearing? The room or the equipment? If you don’t have a reference for what the equipment sounds like in a neutral environment (and who really does?) then you really can’t tell the difference between the room and the equipment.

We wanted our showroom to be an acoustically neutral space in which differences between individual components could easily be heard. Luckily we have a significant advantage compared to most other dealers – we are experts in acoustics. Many clients hire us as consultants because of our knowledge of room acoustic analysis, acoustic treatment design and system setup. We naturally applied that knowledge to our own demonstration space.

Our showroom is sound isolated, which enables you to truly hear what an amplifier or speaker is capable of in terms of resolution and micro dynamics. Extensive bass trapping together with careful application of reflection control through absorption and diffusion lets you hear the equipment, not the room. Simply put, it’s one of the best rooms we’ve ever listened to music in. I’m not sure I’ve ever heard bass as good as it sounds in our showroom, and I’ve been in A LOT of rooms.

Come check it out, you’ll be glad you did!

ATC_Logo_82

ATC make world class, highly neutral speakers with exceptional resolution and dynamic capabilities. You have to hear them!

  • ATC_SCM7_211-2

    SCM7v3

    Come hear the speaker that beat the highly regarded KEF LS50 to best-in-class in a recent Hi-Fi Choice test. The SCM11v3 is a mini-monitor that fits nicely on a desk. A perfect partner for the NAD D7050 direct digital amplifier. $1749.

  • ATC_SCM11_211

    SCM11v2

    The SCM11v2 is a great speaker but is perhaps a little overshadowed in the ATC Passive Series by the awesomeness of the SCM19 and SCM40. Still, if you are looking for a small standmount I can think of nothing better sounding and more musically satisfying at this price point. $2599.

  • ATC_SCM19_211

    SCM19v2

    Wow. Does it really only cost $4299? Yes, that was our reaction too when we first heard the SCM19v2. Shocking resolution, neutrality and coherence that beats out speakers at many multiples the price. Absolute Sound and Stereophile 2014 product of the year.

  • ATC_SCM11_211

    SCM40v2

    The lowest price ATC using their famous dome midrange and the lowest price floorstander in their range. Again, a superb speaker that competes with other manufacturers products at double the price. Not quite “super-resolution” like the SCM19v2 but has significantly better bass extension and output. $6999.

  • devialet-expert-le-120WO

    Le 120 w’ pre-out

  • devialet-expert-le-200WO

    Le 200

    The 200 is the mainstay of the Expert line, with 200W into 6 ohms and phono input with Record Active Matching (configurable EQ curves and cartridge loading). The 200 also comes as standard with the pre-out card, providing a sub crossover with configurable frequency, slope and delays. $9495.

  • devialet-expert-le-400WO

    Le 400

    The 400 is essentially two 200 units, configured as Left / Right monoblocks. Power output doubles and distortion decreases by a factor of four compared to the 200. Simply world class, reference level performance with a reasonable price tag. $17495.
