Honestly, my first thought is "how is it possible that nobody used that name for an audio products company until 2011?"
It's a great name.

Trust me, I know what you mean! I'm going to Vegas on friday, and I'm stoked. Not because its Vegas, but because there are some AV stores close to my hotel with brands that I can't listen to locally. (Too far away.)

I don't think I imagined the speaker-building industry to be under particularly heavy regulation.
R. Pierce characterized the original AMT as essentially being a horn loaded ribbon tweeter with a couple of wrinkles.A true ribbon has no voice coil anywhere--it's a piece of tin foil suspended in a super-strong magnetic field. The AMT is more of a planar driver--there is a voice coil of sorts etched onto the mylar element, and that element is pleated. In response to the pulsating magnetic field, the element squeezes in and out like an accordion, and shoots the air out between the pleats. It's a very interesting design, although it apparently isn't easy to achieve very flat response.
