Product Description

Air Tight has been manufacturing tube amps since their very inception, believing in the unlimited potential of Vacuum Tubes which were once thought to be out of date in contemporary digital days.

It was 30 years ago when AirTight introduced their first tube pre-amp ATC-1 at Air Tight with the firm intention to reproduce real, dynamic sound, and thanks to our unyielding zeal and efforts AirTight has been successful in winning constant fame and a superb reputation in the industry. After the years’ strenuous research & development AirTight is now proud to present the totally redesigned, mighty descendant ATC-5 to cater for the serious demand for real music sources, whether analogue or digital.

To simplify the signal path in audio circuitry has been an influential idea since digital music sources represented by CD got rapidly widespread, but does such simplification really enrich the scope of music reproduction? AirTight believes development of control amp depends on a never-ending process to find the optimum balance between the technology and art itself.

A technology to process properly in both analogue and digital ways is not always in alignment with that of creating joy, emotions, excitements and artistry of music.
Air Tight believes that the ultimate optimized combination of the technology and art shall eventually create a sort of supernatural phenomenon in the form of real musical sensation. This is their upmost goal and sublime dream commonly owned by all the discerning audiophiles in the world.

"Unlike many of the contemporary preamplifier, Air Tight ATC-5 didn’t drop on musicality for being transparent. When science and art are fused and aligned properly something wonderful can arise and ATC-5 is the result of such juxtaposition".-mono and stereo
