ATC and Telarc partner for SACD demo at AES

Acoustic Transducer Company (ATC) loudspeakers has announced a demo of its multi-channel monitoring system using Telarc's Direct Stream Digital for Super Audio CD (SACD) at the upcoming AES show in San Francisco, Oct. 5 to 8. The ATC 5.1 system will include five SCM150ASL Pro three-way, mid-field active monitors and two SCM0.1/15 subwoofers, all with custom piano black finish.

Telarc International is a classical, jazz and blues record label known for its long-term commitment to digital technology. Telarc's commitment to stay on the leading edge of technology prompted the move to record in Direct Stream Digital for SACD release.

The ATC multi-channel monitor setup has been selected for its ability to accurately match the extremely wide frequency response and dynamic range of the SACD Direct Stream Digital encoding scheme. ATC hand builds its reference loudspeaker designs, each of which is powered by individual amplifiers optimized for the driver's bandwidth, delivering balanced maximum sound pressure levels, substantial transient headroom with improved driver protection and precision control over speaker diaphragm travel. Even order-filtered active crossovers are individually aligned and phase corrected at the factory to ensure superb stereo imaging.

The ATC-Telarc DSD demonstrations will take place throughout AES in room 270 of the Moscone Center. Other products being featured in the demo include the Sonoma 32-track DSD DAW, SADiE5 DSD/PCM DAW, EMM Labs DACs and ADCs.
