Introduced in 2006 as a direct successor to the Rockport Technologies ARRAKIS, the ALTAIR loudspeaker was created for music lovers seeking the ultimate in a reasonably sized, yet completely full range loudspeaker. Its mirror imaged, 515 pound composite cabinet was both a bold industrial design statement as well as a definitive example of minimum diffraction design and optimized acoustic proportion.The ALTAIR’s drive unit complement was equally advanced as its cabinet form and construction. Built specially for Rockport Technologies by Audiotechnology of Denmark, the bass, midbass, and midrange drive units all used proprietary, variable section thickness cone profiles and carbon fiber sandwich composite construction developed by Rockport Technologies. 

The result was the highest resolution obtainable from a dynamic driver loudspeaker, combined with unsurpassed harmonic integrity and a stunning dynamic presentation. The ALTAIR was capable of resolving the most intricate delicacies of the musical fabric in a way that was previously associated only with electrostatics; however, the ALTAIR also displayed the correct image perspective in a manner that is the exclusive territory of a point source design.
