Atlantic Technology is now shipping the Gatecrasher3 PowerBar (MSRP $799). The company says the new product serves three key functions: as a Dolby 3.0 LCR sound bar, a streaming music system and wireless multiroom audio system. The Gatecrasher3 is also claimed to be the industry’s first ‘triple wireless system’ with three connectivity options in the form of SKAA, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. AT adds that the sound bar is part of an “unprecedented” ecosystem which includes a range of wireless audio products offered by the brand.
“Gatecrasher3 hits all the right notes,” says Paul Fredrickson, Business Development Director for Muto Communications – the PR and Business Development agency of record for Atlantic Technology. “It is elegant and modern and offers 3 ways to connect wirelessly (SKAA, Dual-Band Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth). Add to this its cutting-edge conveniences like SKAA Artificial Intelligence and multiple streaming music and input capabilities, and Gatecrasher3 is a viable alternative to an AV receiver for an uncluttered home.”
The bar can be expanded to a 3.1 system with an FS Series SKAA wireless sub or to a 5.1 layout with optional SKAA wireless active surrounds. The unit boasts 13 audio input sources, with inbuilt Wi-Fi streaming from the likes of Spotify, Tidal and others, as well as SKAA, Dual-Band Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth with aptX and AAC. Wired digital and analog audio inputs consist of TOSLINK optical, S/PDIF coax, HDMI ARC and stereo RCA.
The Gatecrasher3 carries six 2.5-inch composite polypropylene woofers and three 3/4-inch aluminum-dome tweeters, all housed in a “resonance-free” extruded aluminum enclosure with metal grille, and 360 watts of onboard power. Dolby Audio DSP supports Dolby Digital and Pro-Logic, and virtual surround capability can convert two-, three- and five-channel sources into immersive sound fields without adding speakers.
