Atlantic Technology has announced the release of the updated 8600 Series loudspeakers, showcasing a blend of modern design and enhanced technology for an unparalleled listening experience. The new 8600i Series represents a significant evolution of Atlantic Technology's flagship line, catering to both design-conscious consumers and audiophiles seeking top-tier performance.

For more than three decades, Atlantic Technology has been dedicated to creating audio products that exceed the expectations of discerning listeners worldwide. The 8600i Series continues this tradition, delivering a compelling blend of craftsmanship, technology, and sonic excellence.

The hallmark of the 8600i Series is its refined design, featuring internally braced MDF cabinets with rounded edges for a contemporary aesthetic. Gone are the vinyl coverings of the past, replaced by painted front and rear baffles that not only add elegance but also minimize unwanted resonances. The inclusion of a magnetic metal grille with a bowed shape should ensure precise sound reproduction by eliminating diffraction issues.

Under the hood, Atlantic Technology has made substantial improvements to the speaker's performance. The two active 8-inch woofers now boast enhanced motor designs, resulting in deeper bass, increased output, and improved linearity. With the addition of passive woofers, the 8600iLR delivers a wider frequency response, descending to 30Hz, ±3dB, ensuring a rich and immersive audio experience.

The crossover design has also undergone significant enhancements, featuring upgraded components with greater tolerances. The inclusion of a brushed aluminum plate baffle adds a touch of sophistication to the speakers, available in aluminum or anthracite finishes to complement any decor.

The revamped center-channel speaker, 8600iC, shares many design elements with its counterparts, including the same midrange and tweeter drivers mounted on a brushed aluminum plate baffle. With dual 8-inch woofers and a carefully crafted baffle design, the 8600iC should provide seamless integration with the left and right channels for a unified audio experience.

In addition to visual and performance enhancements, the 8600i Series models retain key features from previous iterations, such as the proprietary Low-Resonance Tweeter (LRT™) and versatile room customization controls. The inclusion of high-grade crossover components further refines the audio output, ensuring clarity, transparency, and realism across the frequency spectrum.
