Would of been a good review if they’d actually tested them with music !

 Volt do a version of the ATC soft dome ...but it’s around £450 a pop !

That is cheap. Falcon are asking £567 and Wilmslow £584.

The Volt is also arguably of lower spec than the ATC particularly the S version making it an uncomfortable substitute (should you feel inclined to spend that amount of money).

 I’ve had success with a Scanspeak soft dome midrange unit in my CM 30 monitors and at £85 each makes them far more cost effective ....mind you the itch to try the Volts will never go away 

Yes it is a reasonable price but it comes at the cost of issues integrating with the woofer (requires high crossover frequency), rocking modes (why the ATC and Volt have a complicated double suspension and pretty much all other 3" soft domes built like a tweeter have disappeared), response correction, etc... It is always going to be compromise which is a large part of the fun.

If they'd used music it wouldn't have been a test. :P
