Atlantic Technology has introduced the System 4400 THX Select home theater speaker series, replacing its critically acclaimed System 4200e system. The new series maintains the same driver complement and electronics as its predecessor, with improved aesthetics and ergonomics for custom installation.
“The System 4200e’s performance was so universally adored by critics, dealers, and consumers alike that we decided to do something radical for its replacement,” comments Atlantic Technology President Peter Tribeman, “we didn’t change a single acoustical component or parameter. There were, however, some changes and improvements that had been requested — including a simplified wall mount system, and a cosmetic update to match the larger THX floorstanding systems. We’re glad to be able to accommodate those requests while still maintaining the essential character that’s made this such a successful product line for Atlantic.” In response to requests from dealers, installers, and consumers the System 4400 LR and 4400 C speakers now feature inset speaker terminal cups, and the 4200 LR speakers include integrated keyhole mounting slots to allow for simple flush mounting on the wall. Additional changes to the series include an updated tweeter mounting baffle to match Atlantic’s other THX speaker lines, and a new satin black finish for the 4400 SR surround speakers.
