AT 8.1 WS

The Cine Series AT 8.1 WS has been designed around the unique Ariatechnik Wave Synergy™ drive unit to bring audiophile performance to a wide range of installation applications. A modular, two-way point source loudspeaker that is intended for use in media rooms , home theaters or anywhere a high output loudspeaker with a wide coverage pattern is required. These loudspeakers deliver class leading accuracy, sensitivity and dynamics. Characteristic of the Wave Synergy™ design is a very wide 'sweet spot' with an exceptionally even response throughout the listening area, as well as an extraordinary transient response.


The AT 8.1 WS can be used in cabinets, behind screen, or as

an in room loudspeaker. Utilizing our amplification’s digital signal processing, the system can correct for each of these unique placement applications with relative ease. The AT 8.1 WS can also be used in conjunction with one or more AT 12 W woofers to make a larger, higher output standalone full range loudspeaker. It is recommended to use at least one AT 12 W for each AT 8.1 WS for full range performance. The 8.1 WS may also be deployed in either passive or active mode to accommodate individual system requirements by utilizing fewer channels of amplification where appropriate. The other advantage to the AT 8.1 WS is that it can be used either vertically or horizontally with no impact on performance or dispersion unlike all other non point source based loudspeakers.
