IK Multimedia has introduced a turnkey Dolby Atmos monitoring system, the iLoud MTM Immersive Bundle.
iLoud MTM studio monitors are now available in the Dolby Audio Room Design Tool (DARDT) for Atmos systems, so you can install a multi-monitor setup that adheres to Dolby’s standards.
The Bundle features 11 iLoud MTM monitors and an ARC MEMS Microphone. iLoud MTM’s built-in ARC self-calibration system adjusts in seconds, correcting each monitor’s output, to ensure the most precise and balanced sound from every position, including ceiling-mounting. IK says that the result is “a true phase-coherent response across the useful frequency spectrum for unbelievably natural sound.”
- Built-in acoustic correction tunes to any placement
- Point-source performance regardless of distance
- Controlled dispersion reduces acoustic issues
- Included in Dolby DARDT (Dolby Audio Room Design Tool) for precise installation
- Integrated LFE bass management
- Compact design that’s easy to mount anywhere
Pricing and Availability:
The iLoud MTM Immersive Bundle 11 is available now for $3999.

proving once again “Atmos” is a terrible product name.
Please consider separating the speakers from the microphone. There are many more multichannel speaker setups than a 7.1.4.. Buying more speakers than one needs so that he doesn’t pay for a number of excess microphones makes little sense.
they can advertise “dolby atmos” until the cows come home, doesnt make it more useful for music.
I used to think that, but man the new mixes coming out on Atmos sound incredible. Even with Apples weird way of doing it on their newer airpods its some of the best portable music I’ve heard to date yet. I have a feeling consumers will listen to it more that way than on a multi speaker setup like this though. Just not very likely
Sticking “I” in front of any non-apple product name simply makes it sound like a cheap knock off. Time for IK to stop with this.
Thats the take you have after reading this and watching the video? The i does not bother me at all, or most people as the series sells really well, and the MTM’s are a great way to get an Atmos room and make money mixing.
i think it’s a great option for people wanting to dip their toe into immersive and a great option for those who might need an immersive system to just check or prepare their music to send of to immersive mixes. nice this is out there.
seems like the wrong brand to go for this.. as typically people dont think first of “IK multimedia” when they need highly detailed audio engineering at a commercial level… but yeh, who knows
These speakers are really really good. But of course there are lots of other good brands that supply similar systems. But for many I believe this is a good enough system which also is easy to install and quite cheap compared to other systems..
Just get Logic and a pair of AirPod Pros. A 400 euro value.
Its like quad was. It was amusing to hear, but people emphatically did NOT invest in 4-channel sound, so the market came & went pretty quickly. Too bad, as I once heard “Switched-On Bach” in quad and it was a bit of a mixing gimmick, but also a mind blower.
I’d be a lot more interested if Atmos had a greater foothold in people’s homes. Pods aren’t the best way to hear everything it offers. Give it a while and it’ll probably start appearing as add-on speakers for your smart TV, which already spies on you when you pee.
10th grade IIRC my friend had a quad setup I think it was Welcome Back… or Brain Salad Surgery? Sound awesome lol, but we were pretty high.
Quad had no application to the film industry though. This is more like scalable surround and there are many people who have surround systems in their house. So it can be useful for professionals doing film work.
sitting infront of the orchestra worked well for a few 100 years,
now ppl think you have to sit inside the orchestra because it makes the music so much better. /s
seriously, this works for games and movies uh oh watch out there is someone behind you ….
it makes absolutely no sense to have the Tamborine dance around you. 😉
It depends on what you consider music. If it is pop songs, it won’t work. If it is music where the composer had spatial thinking and treated space as one of the musical parameters it can be excellent. With films it doesn’t work that well. Already you have an ancor point in front of you, where you place your attention. This means by default that “around you” you’ll have only of secondary importance elements (sfx, etc). Plus you are watching something which by default reduces the music experience.
Atmos=you think it sounds better but you f***ed it up!
