ATC Marks The 70th Birthday Of Its Founder With A Luxury Edition Of A Favourite Loudspeaker

25071367619_65d50c2095_z

Presented in a ATC blue piano finish, the SCM10SE is enhanced with an anodised silver aluminium tweeter wave guide, complementary silver mid/bass driver surround and a fine grain blue leather baffle, hand-finished by Eissmann, a leading supplier of pristine interior trims for many of the world’s most desirable car brands including Aston Martin, Bugatti, Lamborghini and McLaren.

Matching the flawless precision of its finish, the SCM10SE’s proprietary drivers and crossovers are wholly conceived and hand-built at ATC’s UK development and production facility at Stroud, Gloucestershire. The original SCM10’s soft dome tweeter has been replaced with a recently developed SH25-76S ‘S-Spec’ 25mm dual suspension design, and its ground-breaking SB45-125SC 125mm mid/bass unit with a latest version, complete with integral soft dome. The system’s crossover is redesigned for the new drive units and uses ATC’s hand-wound air-cored inductors and high performance polypropylene capacitors throughout.

Appropriately the SCM10SE is limited to a production run of just seventy pairs, each supplied with an exclusive owner’s guide relating the story of Billy Woodman’s career from his formative engineering in Australia to the seminal, ethos-building work at Goodmans in the UK and culminating in the founding and flourishing of his Company as a world-renowned exponent of high performance audio reproduction systems for the studio, cinema, club and home.

Capturing the innovative spirit and uncompromising culture of ATC, the exclusive SCM10SE Signature speaker is a definitive 70th birthday tribute to the remarkable energy and influence of its founder, MD and Chief Engineer Billy Woodman.
