What is it?[edit]

This article needs to start with a sentence that begins, "An Air Motion Transformer is...". Describing how it works is secondary to describing what it is. johnpseudo 22:59, 12 November 2006 (UTC)

Merge proposal[edit]

The ESS speakers and the defunct company that made them are in a 1:1 relationship with the AMT. There's not enough material to want it split over two articles. So let's merge this new content to here. Dicklyon (talk) 18:53, 7 March 2008 (UTC)

Mildly disagree. If ESS were the only company ever to have made speakers with AMT drivers, it would be a 1:1 relationship. Since that's not the case, we run the risk of including irrelevant information about a company in an article about a driver. Rivertorch (talk) 18:45, 8 March 2008 (UTC)
I wasn't aware that others had used AMT. Who did? Dicklyon (talk) 19:25, 8 March 2008 (UTC)
According to the article, the AMT is currently being produced and used by others. Rivertorch (talk) 06:13, 9 March 2008 (UTC)
There are quite a number of companies that build loudspeakers based on the AMT principle as menioned in the article itself. Germany: ADAM, ELAC, ETON, EVE Audio, MUNDORF, MBHO; Switzerland: Precide; Spain: BEYMA (rather active on that subject); Japan: FAL - Furuyama Audio Labs. It is also the subject of standard text books, e.g. [1], 6th ed. on page 102. In my opinion this article has the right to remain. --Robsedropse (talk) 08:58, 25 August 2015 (UTC)
