Telarc's commitment to stay on the leading edge of digital technology prompted the move to record in Direct Stream Digital for Super Audio CD 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 the most accurate professional reference loudspeakers in the world. All drive units are 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 at the factory and phase corrected for superb stereo imaging.

ATC's drivers are manufactured in-house to exacting tolerances and are legendary for their many design innovations, such as the innovative SL magnet system and the company's renowned Soft Dome mid-range driver, which achieves exceptionally broad and even dispersion to produce a flat response anywhere in the room. Situated in Aston Down in rural Gloucestershire, England, ATC was established in London in 1974 by acoustics engineer andmusician, Bill Woodman.
