Through countless experiments in designing, tunings and valuable opinions from customers, finally accomplished with a set criteria and fundamental which deemed important in sound reproduction:-
Beautiful melody, rhythms and pace. It is our 1st criteria because only with musicality, one will truly feel engaged and "as one" with the music
2) Tonality & Timbre
With the right tonality and timbre, we can appreciate the realism and beauty of a vocalist or the delicate sound from an instrument.
3) Point of Source
In every point of a performance or sound created, the sound must produce exactly out from the performer's vocal or instrument.
4) "Sense of Touch"
when we can experience the "touch" of the instruments, hence able to appreciate the movement and vibration of the instrument.
For instance, striking a piano key, plucking of a guitar string or blowing of a saxophone.
5) Density & Weight
We believe sound has different weight, but only with high density,then we can experience the evidence of weight.
6) Body & Shape
With sufficient body, the shape of an instrument and voice of a performer will be more established.
7) Separation & Layering
Separation means there must be a space between the vocal and the instrument. And when separation has been achieved,
layering will then be more prevalent.
Besides the above mentioned, we are also able to achieve some criteria which are not our top priorities to begin with:
8) Dead Quiet Background
The dead quiet backgrpund caught us by surprised, it made the music more peaceful and enjoyable.
However, we think that this can never be the top priority as it will affect other aspects in sound reproduction.
9) Transparency, Transcience & Dynamics
We believe this aspects will naturally produced when all the above criteria are being fulfilled.
10) Sound Staging
Wide & deep soundstaging? we could experience and prefer a no-boundary soundstaging.
Finally, we would like to emphasize that all our cables (Interconnect, Speaker Cables & Powercord) are made of same material with same gauge and we truly believe that contributes to our final sound. In Sky Audio, we understand the importance of matching, hence we recommend customers to try the ATC on their own setup, We offer a no obligation home‐trial to customers.
