New speaker brand Revival Audio (founded in 2021) has launched its first range of standmounter hi-fi speakers engineered and assembled in France, with a distinctly classic design. The Atalante series includes the bookshelf-sized two-way Atalante 3 and the three-way Atalante 5. The larger model can be standmounted or stood on the floor with a special wooded floor stand included in the box that tilts the cabinet eight degrees for the perfect listening angle.

The Atalante 3 model comprises a 28mm soft-dome tweeter with Revival's ARID (Anti Reflection Inner Dome) technology that the company claims, along with its back-chamber design, can absorb over 95% of unwanted resonances.

Lower frequencies are handled by a 7-inch woofer with lightweight but rigid basalt sandwich construction, which Revival says provides a fast and smooth response and tight bass dynamics. The Atalante 3 has a nominal impedance of 6 Ohms (minimum impedance is 4.4 Ohms at 175Hz) and a claimed frequency response of 44Hz – 22kHz (+/-3db).

With a retro design, the handsome cabinets are finished in a walnut wood veneer, with a belt and knot design and burned logos.

Recommended for rooms sized between 15 to 35 sq metres, the Atalante 3 is priced at €2390 (around £2060 / $2366 / AU$3517) and can be paired with the Revival Audio Stand 3, sold separately at €399 (around £344 / $395 / AU$587).

The 3-way Atalante 5 combines a 28mm soft-dome tweeter and 75mm mid-range driver, using ARID technology, with a 12-inch basalt sandwich construction woofer for a frequency response that extends down to 28Hz and crossovers at 450Hz and 3.5kHz.

Recommended for rooms between 30 and 60 sq metres, the Atalante 5 has a nominal impedance of 4 Ohms and a minimum impedance of 3.2 Ohms at 110Hz.

The Atalante 5 cost €4490 (around £3878 / $4445 / AU$6612) per pair, while the dedicated stand is sold separately at €399 (around £344 / $395 / AU$587).

Although official pricing is only available in Euros, Revival Audio ships worldwide. In the EU, prices include VAT with free delivery, while in the UK, prices are non-inclusive of VAT, with free shipping and taxes collected by the courier. For the rest of the world, costs are, again, non-VAT and taxes are managed by the courier.
