NORWOOD, MA (9/26/11) -- Atlantic Technology is now shipping a significantly redesigned version of its popular FS-7.0 seven-channel home theater soundbar with a new look, improved acoustics, and higher performance.  Like its predecessor, the new Atlantic Technology FS-7.1 has seven speaker-level inputs allowing for simple and direct connection to any seven-channel home theater receiver.

While the new FS-7.1 looks quite different with its redesigned enclosure and grilles, the major improvements are under the hood. Now the surround drivers are angled forward for improved surround-sound effects in rooms even when the listening room doesn’t have nearby side walls. The company also revoiced the crossover for smoother, more accurate sound and improved power-handling capabilities. It also boasts both keyhole and threaded inserts for easy mounting.

"The original seven-channel FS-7.0 soundbar was an instant hit," said Atlantic Technology's president, Peter Tribeman, "because it was (and still is!) the world’s first and only seven-channel soundbar.  Customers loved the simple hook-up and the sound was great, but a few thought it relied too much on side walls for surround. Well, the new design resolves that and it looks even better.

Like its predecessor, the FS-7.1 works best with a subwoofer, and Atlantic Technology upgraded that too. The new125-watt SB-900 subwoofer has a more powerful amplifier than the 100-watt SB-800, and an improved limiter that gives it the ability to play louder. Together, the FS-7.1 and SB-900 deliver a simple and highly capable two-box solution for outstanding 7-channel home theater.

The FS-7.1 and SB-900 are both available now, with MSRPs of $950 and $350 respectively.
