ATC ONE OF THE BEST LOUDSPEAKERS, IF NOT THE BEST
A True 3-Way monitor from world renowned ATC - Loudspeaker Co. using bespoke components made in England
Manufactured in house to exacting tolerances,ATC’s drivers are legendary for their many design innovations. For instance, their hand-wound short voice coils use only high density edge-wound flat OFC wire and operate in a precision long magnetic gap. Front and rear magnetic venting which not only reduces airflow and noise, but increases power handling and long term reliability. Massive motor assemblies offer no-compromise optimisation for each voice coil diameter.
The unique ‘Soft Dome’ technology that features in the mid driver of our SCM 40 floor-standing monitor was developed by ATC in 1976. Its arrival revolutionised professional studio monitoring. Remarkably today, as then, it remains the only mid-range device capable of giving ultimate performance. They are unique, not only in their ability to accurately reproduce piano, but also the precise manner in which they articulate male voices.
SCM 40 Reviews
Free of bloom or coloration, the SCM40 is nonetheless critical of poor source material and requires careful partnering in amplification and cabling. If these are neutral the listener will be rewarded with a lasting product that conveys all the musical flow and depression in a performance, with definitive portrayal of fine detail and – if present in the recording – all the dimensions and ambience of soundstaging. Excellent value
These ATCs are easily among the best speakers at this price level: is your system good enough?
