AN EXCLUSIVE REALREVIEW OF THE ACTIVE ATC SCM 19AT by Richard Bowles (Rabski)

First impressions A development of the company’s well-regarded SCM19 stand-mount passives, the SCM19ATs are the result of ATC applying their experience with professional monitors to produce a pair of compact, domestic, fully-active towers. In the world of hi-fi, heavy is good. In which case at over 30 kg each, these …

Kudos Super 10 Standmount Loudspeaker Review

There are more than a few great rivalries in audio- this is as much down to the fact that as a twitching bowl of personality disorders, this is a fairly combative industry. There are times when being a fan of one manufacturer seem to have put you firmly on one …

PMC Twenty.26 Floorstanding Speaker Review

It must cause a bit of confusion that a well respected and marketing savvy brand like PMC makes two loudspeakers at virtually the same price. The twenty.26 retails for £5,995 and fact.8 is £6,495 so they are not precisely the same but at this level the difference is small enough …

Q-Acoustics Concept 40 Speaker Review

A year or so back I reviewed the first of the Concept series speakers from Q-Acoustics, the Concept 20. That model has similar drivers to the company’s 2020i budget stand-mount but a more sophisticated cabinet design, something which doubles the price but also doubles the resolution by halving the cabinet …

Acoustic Energy 103 Loudspeakers Review

In many ways I’m the worst possible person to review these speakers. My frame of reference is a bit skewed. I haven’t listened properly to a pair of box speakers for the best part of three years, and I haven’t critically listened to, or owned a pair of speakers that …
