Atelier 33 was created by Bernard Byk in 1980. The company has become since one of the top names among the audio and sound system professionals. Atelier 33 pioneered reusable packaging in France, and is now the first French flight-case maker, historically and in terms of production volume.
Atelier 33 was a pioneer in the domain of acoustic development too. Created in 1980, its Acoustics Research and Development Department was managed by Alain Demion for more than 10 years. This collaboration gave birth to several PA systems, among which the first long-throw line source system. Atelier 33’s Zenith was the first horn system applying a vertical coupling principle to high-power sound reinforcement systems. In its time, this system was already based on a loudspeaker loaded by a phase piece mounted behind a hyperbolic horn. This first incarnation of the line source concept gave the Zenith a multi-miles throw, combined with an extraordinary efficiency. Thousands of Zenith systems were sold during the 80s, and some famous sound companies like Blue Square or Texen still use them on tour ! At the beginning of the 80s, the Atelier 33′s Definition model was praised for its sonic transparency. This high-power speaker was the first to be used at the famous Acoustical Musical Research and Coordination Institute in Paris. It was chosen after some comparative listening tests managed by composer Pierre Boulez himself.
After 10 years spent in Research and Development, Atelier 33 widened its activities by creating an innovating product line, sold under a new commercial brand : Amadeus. This high-end brand was born in 1992, from the collaboration between Bernard Byk and Michel Deluc.
