The Ear reviews ATC's P2 300w/ch dual mono power stereo power amplifier

http://www.the-ear.net/review-hardware/atc-p2-stereo-power-amplifier

"I suspect that the P2 will drive just about everything out there, it’s just a question of taste as to whether you will like the result. ATC make no nonsense, down to earth amplifiers and loudspeakers based on decades of experience in the pro and consumer markets, and they make them in Gloucestershire, England in an unprepossessing building. This combined with a singularly indifferent attitude to advertising means that ATC products offer better value than most, in fact there aren’t many companies that compete on that front and even fewer who have such a solid track record. In other words this is not only a very capable amplifier it has pedigree and it’s sensibly priced. What more do you want?"

Generating twice the power of its smaller P1 sibling, the P2 will drive the most challenging loudspeakers with ATC’s signature virtues of wide bandwidth and ultra-low distortion…

Hi-Fi News (March 2017) reviews ATC's P2 300w/ch dual mono power stereo power amplifier

“the P2 is one of those subtle components that quietly works its magic on you, until you suddenly realise that it is doing everything brilliantly but without any fuss or melodrama. Put simply, it just sounds ‘right’.”

“In terms of detail, the P2 struck gold once again. Instruments were lifelike and beautifully atmospheric, no matter whether a recording featured a soft solo acoustic ensemble or a grand orchestral bombardment.”

Adam Smith, Hi-Fi News, March 2017

Hand-built by ATC in the UK, the P2 class A/B stereo power amplifier is designed to complement the brand’s range of hi-fi preamplifiers, both aesthetically and operationally. Rated at 300W continuous power per channel and developed in tandem with the P2 Pro studio amplifier, the ATC P2 is a Dual Mono design, keeping the power supplies, signal and return paths discreet. This approach ensures that the amplifier will achieve the maximum signal separation with minimal crosstalk, and that intermodulation between channels via the power supplies is reduced to an absolute minimum across a frequency range of 400kHz. It also means that the power delivery from one channel cannot affect the specified power available from the other.

Within a new low-vibration chassis design featuring a precision machined 12.7mm brushed aluminium front panel, the P2’s layout includes a massive, custom-made 400 VA low-noise transformer for each channel and an output stage involving 3 pairs of MOSFET devices per channel to achieve peak current output of over 15 amps. ATC’s unique “grounded source” output stage ensures smooth power delivery and extremely low harmonic distortion. The gain of the P2 matches that of the lower power P1 (150W/ch) so that they can be used together in bi-amp or tri-amp systems, connected via the amplifier ‘Link’ phono inputs/outputs.

The ATC P2 offers balanced XLR and unbalanced phono inputs, ‘link’ phono outputs, proprietary 4mm speaker terminals, and IR remote control.

MUSCLE SHOALS LEGENDARY FAME STUDIOS REVITALIZES STUDIO B STARTING WITH ATC SCM45A PROFESSIONAL MONITORS (TransAudio Group, USA) -

ATC_FAME_Studios_SCM45A_Pro.png

Built in the 1960s by Rick Hall, FAME Studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama was the first and most prominent studio to curate the Muscle Shoals Sound, a unique and ultimately ineffable combination of country, gospel, rock, and soul. Listed in the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. FAME Studios recorded hits by Aretha Franklin, Clarence Carter, Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett, Gregg Allman, and countless others who shaped the face of modern music. It has been in continuous service since it opened, with modern recordings by Jason Isbell, Blind Boys of Alabama, Alison Krauss, The Revialists, Keb Mo’, Demi Lovato, Steven Tyler, the Raconteurs, and Alicia Keys. FAME operations are handled by Rodney Hall, who recently teamed up with Grammy Award-winning producer and engineer Glenn Rosenstein to revitalize the control room of FAME Studio B (paired with a live room that Rosenstein considers one the best in the world) with structural changes, new equipment, and a pair of ATC SCM45A Professional monitors.

"I was deeply influenced by the music that came out of Muscle Shoals," recalled Rosenstein, who has worked with U2, George Clinton, The Ramones, Madonna, James Brown, Talking Heads, and others. "So, I was thrilled in the mid-1980s to get a call from the late Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section member Jimmy Johnson. He was producing an album for Lynyrd Skynyrd and asked if I would mix. We finished that project and shortly thereafter teamed up on Gary Rossington’s solo album, which cemented our friendship. We worked together over the past thirty-plus years, and recently I started spending more time in the Shoals area. When I needed to track drums or do other ‘big studio’ tasks, I went to FAME Studios and fell in love with the live room in Studio B."

Rick Hall built Studio B in 1967 due to the overwhelming demand for Studio A. Early incarnations of what would become The Allman Brothers Band put Studio B through its paces immediately after its completion. During large Studio A sessions, Rick would record the horn arrangements in Studio B while other elements were recorded in Studio A. Hits recorded in Studio B include "Hey Joe" by Wilson Pickett, "Greenwood Mississippi" by Little Richard, "I Loved Her First" by Heartland, Sirens Of The Ditch album by Jason Isbell and Dirty South album by the Drive By Truckers. Studio B also hosted Jimi Hendrix, who recorded the song "Mojo Man" there. The song was released a year ago as part of the Jimi Hendrix People, Angels & Hell retrospective project.

ATC_FAME_Studios_Staff.png

In an illustrious career spanning nearly four decades, Rosenstein has worked in almost every major recording studio in the country. "FAME’s Studio B is one of the finest live rooms anywhere," he said. "I discovered this about a year-and-a-half ago, when I was cutting vocals in B with Whitney Woerz for my record label, 600 Volt/Sony. Rodney [Hall] dropped in, I told him I was getting some of the best vocal sounds I had ever heard, despite the fact that the control room equipment was average. How was this gem of a studio not being used more frequently?"

Despite the fact that Rosenstein has a studio in Nashville and two home studios near Muscle Shoals, he felt compelled to partner with Rodney Hall & FAME to help bring Studio B to the glory it deserved. "The control room was small and needed to be refreshed," he said. "Its original UA console had been loaned to the Alabama Music Hall of Fame, and there was a control surface in its place. The next thing I knew, Rodney and I were pulling down walls to expand the size of the control room. We contacted Paul Savasta at Odyssey Pro Sound to broker our console purchase – he found us Stevie Ray Vaughan’s SSL 6000 E Series. We are in the process of restoring the original UA console to serve as a side car. Most importantly, we didn’t touch the live room"

ATC_FAME_Studios_Console.png

He continued, "It was like archaeology, pulling off walls that had been built on top of walls. Many of the surfaces hadn’t been exposed in over fifty years. There were a lot of smart design elements that we used to our advantage, and the room now competes with the best of modern acoustic design." Rodney Hall added, "I’ve had people ask, ‘what would your dad think of this renovation?’ I’m sure he’d love it! He was always changing things, always updating equipment and aesthetics. We even outfitted a private lounge attached to the control room that had previously been a tape vault. So, it’s got a really cool vibe. You can hang out in there with the Otis Redding masters."

The choice of ATC SCM45A Professional monitors was not a difficult one for the team. "I’ve used virtually every high-end monitor available, and ATCs always speak to me," Rosenstein said. "In this room, we’re treading lightly on the shoulders of greatness – if we’re going to equip the studio with the kind of gear that represents that kind of legacy, then ATC was a natural choice. I know that ATCs are an amazing draw that make a clear statement about the calibre of this room. Moreover, we were careful not to pigeonhole Studio B in any particular genre. We wanted a fully-modern room capable of delivering on the Muscle Shoals sound, sure, but also on anything else – EDM, pop, country, you name it. ATCs cut across genres because they reveal a true picture of the work."

He concluded, "To go from a young fan of the Muscle Shoals sound… to now having some partnership in its most iconic studio… I never would have guessed that would be possible. But here we are, and here we go!"

Fame Studios.

SIX-TIME GRAMMY AWARD-WINNING MIX ENGINEER KEN "DURO" IFILL SWITCHES TO ATC SCM45A PROFESSIONAL NEARFIELD MONITORS (TransAudio Group USA) -

For over 25 years, Ken "Duro" Ifill has been mixing the living history of urban hip-hop and R&B. His client list includes Jay-Z, NAS, ‎Pharrell, Erykah Badu, Will Smith, Beastie Boys, Usher, and on and on, and through a singular focus on making everything he works on as cool as possible, he has won six Grammy Awards. These days, Duro splits his time between the studio, where he still engages his first and enduring passion (mixing!) and Senior VP of A&R at Republic/Universal Records. After twenty years on the same monitors and two years in dissatisfied flux, Duro recently upgraded to ATC SCM45A Professional three-way near field monitors.

"I discovered ATC working at Q-Tip’s studio (A Tribe Called Quest)," Duro explained. "He had a pair of soffit-mounted ATC SCM150ASL Pros and some other well-respected near fields. The first thing I fell in love with on his ATCs was the imaging. As a mix engineer, I don’t think of things as just left or right. I think in three dimensions, which makes imaging especially important. I’ll put things, say, to the left-rear or centre-up. Even beyond that, I’m thinking in actual depth. Say, for example, is something three feet back on the left or is it six feet back? I quickly stopped using Q-Tip’s near fields entirely and just mixed everything on the ATCs. I loved how the volume didn’t affect the mix. I could mix quiet or loud and still have the same stable relationships and all the bass information. The top end was smooth and not at all fatiguing. It was a really enjoyable and productive mixing experience."

Around the same time, Duro was acquainting himself with a new set of near fields in his own studio that he had committed to before the Q-Tip ATC experience. They came after two decades on the same monitors. "I was having reliability issues with my new near fields, but because I had made a pretty sizable investment in them, I wasn’t ready to abandon ship," Duro said. "Then I went back to Q-Tip’s studio and he had upgraded to the biggest monitors that ATC makes – soffit-mounted mains with dual 15s (ATC SCM300ASL Pros)!  I said, ‘man, you must really love these things!’ When I got back to my studio and still had the same unresolved reliability issues, I said forget it. I decided to just get the ATCs that I was wanting."

Based on the size of the near fields he has always preferred mixing on, Duro went with the ATC SCM45A Professional three-way monitors, which use two 6.5-inch low frequency drivers, a three-inch soft dome mid-frequency driver, and a one-inch high-frequency driver. Although he has only had them for a short time, Duro already completed Kiana Ledé EP Myself using the ATC SCM45A's. "The translation on the ATCs is great," he said. "But even beyond the balance between the instruments, the more nuanced texture of the sounds translates. The same way that two vocalists can hit the same note and still sound different… it’s kind of analogous to what I’m talking about." That translation of texture allows Duro to reliably mix not just for balance, but also for the emotional edge that separates a good mix from a fantastic mix. Thoroughly pleased, Duro is convinced he now has the monitors that will see him through the decades to come. A huge thanks go out to Dan Physics at Alto Music in New York who was instrumental in his quest to acquire the ATCs.

ATC's P2 300w/ch dual mono power stereo power amplifier is at Musicraft (Derby)

Hand-built by ATC in the UK, the P2 class A/B stereo power amplifier is designed to complement the brand’s range of hi-fi preamplifiers, both aesthetically and operationally. Rated at 300W continuous power per channel and developed in tandem with the P2 Pro studio amplifier, the ATC P2 is a Dual Mono design, keeping the power supplies, signal and return paths discreet. This approach ensures that the amplifier will achieve the maximum signal separation with minimal crosstalk, and that intermodulation between channels via the power supplies is reduced to an absolute minimum across a frequency range of 400kHz. It also means that the power delivery from one channel cannot affect the specified power available from the other.

Within a new low-vibration chassis design featuring a precision machined 12.7mm brushed aluminium front panel, the P2’s layout includes a massive, custom-made 400 VA low-noise transformer for each channel and an output stage involving 3 pairs of MOSFET devices per channel to achieve peak current output of over 15 amps. ATC’s unique “grounded source” output stage ensures smooth power delivery and extremely low harmonic distortion. The gain of the P2 matches that of the lower power P1 (150W/ch) so that they can be used together in bi-amp or tri-amp systems, connected via the amplifier ‘Link’ phono inputs/outputs.

The ATC P2 offers balanced XLR and unbalanced phono inputs, ‘link’ phono outputs, proprietary 4mm speaker terminals, and IR remote control.

ATC P2 Features -
• Latest ATC discrete MOSFET grounded source output stage.
• Class A/B topology.
• 300W into 8 ohm continuous power O/P capability
• Dual mono-design ensures minimal crosstalk and inter-channel modulation.
• Entirely separate power supplies for high voltage audio, low voltage audio and logic/control.
• 400kHz bandwidth to ensure best possible transient reproduction.
• Vanishingly low distortion.
• Custom low noise toroidal transformers.
• New chassis design for reduced vibration and a more striking visual appearance.

What Hi-Fi reviews ATC's curved SCM40A active monitors -

http://www.whathifi.com/atc/scm40a/review

"But factor the built-in amplification, exotically engineered in-house drive units and the resultant exceptional sound quality and the SCM40A emerge as something of a high-end bargain. Consider us smitten."

"The ATC SCM40As are the most affordable way to get a full dose of ATC’s technology and engineering. The results are terrific."

The curved SCM40A is an active version of ATC's highly successful curved SCM40 passive monitors. The 3-way design, employing all hand built ATC drive units is complimented with a built-in 235Watt class AB tri-amplifier. The MOSFET based amplifier is a modified version of that found in ATC's larger active monitors, the SCM50ASL, SCM100ASL and SCM150ASL.

Tone Audio reviews ATC's curved SCM40A active monitors

"Power up the SCM40A and the ears are greeted with a speaker that has a solid grip on whatever music is played. When the Romans’ “Uh Huh” via Tidal is playing, the bass frequencies penetrate while the finger snapping is rich and textured. It’s immediately apparent that these speakers rock the house."

"All ATC drivers are built in-house, not by a third party. This may cost a bit more but the result is a perfect match from design to implementation. From the one-inch soft dome tweeter, 3-inch dome midrange, and the 6.5-inch short coil bass driver, accuracy is key and the SCM40-As have it in spades. “Shine” by Years and Years is downright addicting with its electronic bass and keyboards. The sound is so spot on you almost start listening for an artifact from Pro Tools."

"The mid range is the money zone in speakers, and never is this truer than with the SCM40As. The soft dome is a revelation, especially with acoustic guitars. The romantic Mexican string style in “Puesta Del Sol” by Sean Harkness combines mellow richness with clarity. This accuracy is a hallmark of ATC."

"For those who crave accuracy above all, the ATC SCM40A is an absolute finalist for your system. As for the balance of buyers in this price range, do yourself a favor and give them an audition; hearing the dome midrange itself is worth the time."

Mark Marcantonio

"ATC is best known for their work with recording studios, and their speakers also reside in the home of many musicians. No wonder, because they offer outstanding dispersion, tonal accuracy and tremendous dynamic range along with low distortion. Their ability to play without fatigue in the recording studio translates into home speakers that can rock at concert level all day long, should you have the need."

"If you’re tired of the cable and equipment hassle, I can’t suggest a better pair of active speakers than the ATC SCM40As. They produce sound well beyond what their price tag suggests, especially considering that you will eliminate at least a few thousand dollars in speaker cables and power amplifiers."

Positive-Feedback reviews ATC's curved SCM40A active monitors

"ATC are makers of studio monitors. I expect every reader of this review has at least one recording in which an ATC speaker was used in producing it. And we're talking some exceptional recordings, think Pink Floyd, Mark Knopfler, Diana Krall, and great recording engineers, again think Doug Sax, George Massenburg and Bob Ludwig and even Walt Disney Concert Hall."

"Despite striking levels of transparency, ATC speakers share sonic characteristics between models more than any brand I've heard."

"Still, vocals are extraordinarily clear and clean—likely due to ATC's mid-dome driver which covers the range from 350Hz to 3.5kHz—essentially single driver reproduction of the vocal range. With vocals produced from a single driver, performance is enhanced. The mid-dome driver did its ATC magic. Well recorded vocals have a clarity, immediacy and "speed" that few other cone driver brands have."

"I like the place the 40A plays in the ATC line. It's an angel's balance of the somewhat kinder, gentler domestic line with a slice of the precision of their studio line. Absolutely recommended."

Hi-Fi Choice reviews ATC's CDA2 MK2 CDP/DSD DAC/Pre Amplifier and curved SCM40A active monitors

"As the active loudspeaker comes of age, Ed Selley sees just what a master of the art is capable of."

"One of the very best implementations of active speakers that I have spent time with."

"Of course, you don't buy products from ATC simply because they look nice, and the moment that you ask this system to get down to business, it reminds you of this in no uncertain terms."

"what is most immediately arresting is what a difference going active makes to the SCM40. The passive version of  the speaker is supremely capable, but mated with ATC’s own amplification it feels like the whole presentation has been turbocharged."

"And the bass… the low end on  offer here is exquisite. The technical arguments for why active speakers can generate better bass than an equivalent passive design are worthy and entirely accurate, but are no substitute for listening to what this system is really capable of. The sledgehammer low-end of Scratch Massive’s Waiting For A Sign is simply awesome. If you want bass that you feel as much as hear, there’s very little else available anywhere near this price that can out slam this setup. What sets it apart further is that there’s nothing I’ve ever heard anywhere near this price that combines this gut-wrenching impact with the agility this system possesses."

"The active loudspeaker is no longer simply the optimal choice on paper, it’s a real world champion too."

The making of ATC's SCM50 monitors. What Hi-Fi magazine visits ATC to see What Hi-Fi's reference speakers, the legendary SCM50, being made -

https://www.whathifi.com/features/the-making-of-atc-scm50

"Purchase a set of excellent ATC SCM50s and you can rest assured that Vanessa will almost certainly make the voice coil, Hugh will take care of the midrange driver, Toby will assemble the bass unit and Chloe will fashion the tweeter. These highly-skilled team members offer a combined experience of 92 years, all funneled into one product – and that's just for starters."

"The familial feel at ATC is unique and wholly likeable, but we aren't fooled. Our visit is underpinned by the notion of something far stronger: assurance. ATC knows full-well what it's doing. And it does it very well indeed."

Tone Audio reviews ATC's curved SCM40A active monitors

"Power up the SCM40A and the ears are greeted with a speaker that has a solid grip on whatever music is played. When the Romans’ “Uh Huh” via Tidal is playing, the bass frequencies penetrate while the finger snapping is rich and textured. It’s immediately apparent that these speakers rock the house."

"All ATC drivers are built in-house, not by a third party. This may cost a bit more but the result is a perfect match from design to implementation. From the one-inch soft dome tweeter, 3-inch dome midrange, and the 6.5-inch short coil bass driver, accuracy is key and the SCM40-As have it in spades. “Shine” by Years and Years is downright addicting with its electronic bass and keyboards. The sound is so spot on you almost start listening for an artifact from Pro Tools."

"The mid range is the money zone in speakers, and never is this truer than with the SCM40As. The soft dome is a revelation, especially with acoustic guitars. The romantic Mexican string style in “Puesta Del Sol” by Sean Harkness combines mellow richness with clarity. This accuracy is a hallmark of ATC."

"For those who crave accuracy above all, the ATC SCM40A is an absolute finalist for your system. As for the balance of buyers in this price range, do yourself a favor and give them an audition; hearing the dome midrange itself is worth the time."

Mark Marcantonio

"ATC is best known for their work with recording studios, and their speakers also reside in the home of many musicians. No wonder, because they offer outstanding dispersion, tonal accuracy and tremendous dynamic range along with low distortion. Their ability to play without fatigue in the recording studio translates into home speakers that can rock at concert level all day long, should you have the need."

"If you’re tired of the cable and equipment hassle, I can’t suggest a better pair of active speakers than the ATC SCM40As. They produce sound well beyond what their price tag suggests, especially considering that you will eliminate at least a few thousand dollars in speaker cables and power amplifiers."

Positive-Feedback reviews ATC's curved SCM40A active monitors

"ATC are makers of studio monitors. I expect every reader of this review has at least one recording in which an ATC speaker was used in producing it. And we're talking some exceptional recordings, think Pink Floyd, Mark Knopfler, Diana Krall, and great recording engineers, again think Doug Sax, George Massenburg and Bob Ludwig and even Walt Disney Concert Hall."

"Despite striking levels of transparency, ATC speakers share sonic characteristics between models more than any brand I've heard."

"Still, vocals are extraordinarily clear and clean—likely due to ATC's mid-dome driver which covers the range from 350Hz to 3.5kHz—essentially single driver reproduction of the vocal range. With vocals produced from a single driver, performance is enhanced. The mid-dome driver did its ATC magic. Well recorded vocals have a clarity, immediacy and "speed" that few other cone driver brands have."

"I like the place the 40A plays in the ATC line. It's an angel's balance of the somewhat kinder, gentler domestic line with a slice of the precision of their studio line. Absolutely recommended."

Hi-Fi Choice reviews ATC's CDA2 MK2 CDP/DSD DAC/Pre Amplifier and curved SCM40A active monitors

"As the active loudspeaker comes of age, Ed Selley sees just what a master of the art is capable of."

"One of the very best implementations of active speakers that I have spent time with."

"Of course, you don't buy products from ATC simply because they look nice, and the moment that you ask this system to get down to business, it reminds you of this in no uncertain terms."

"what is most immediately arresting is what a difference going active makes to the SCM40. The passive version of  the speaker is supremely capable, but mated with ATC’s own amplification it feels like the whole presentation has been turbocharged."

"And the bass… the low end on  offer here is exquisite. The technical arguments for why active speakers can generate better bass than an equivalent passive design are worthy and entirely accurate, but are no substitute for listening to what this system is really capable of. The sledgehammer low-end of Scratch Massive’s Waiting For A Sign is simply awesome. If you want bass that you feel as much as hear, there’s very little else available anywhere near this price that can out slam this setup. What sets it apart further is that there’s nothing I’ve ever heard anywhere near this price that combines this gut-wrenching impact with the agility this system possesses."

"The active loudspeaker is no longer simply the optimal choice on paper, it’s a real world champion too."

The Ear reviews ATC's curved SCM40 passive monitors -

http://www.the-ear.net/review-hardware/atc-scm40-floor-standing-loudspeaker

"It’s probably best not to wear socks whilst listening to the SCM40s – they’re only going to get blown off each time you fire-up these gorgeous floorstanders. Right from the outset, these hand-built speakers impress even before you get their drivers moving. They’re built using a curved cabinet design that adds a classic elegance, and our review pair was exquisitely finished in a cherry wood veneer (they can also be ordered in black ash veneer as well as a black or white satin finish)."

"This company is known for its engineering knowhow, and all of this tech-talk certainly leaves you in no doubt that you get a lot of speaker for your money when it comes to the SCM40s, setting you up nicely for what comes next."

"Selecting the atmospheric track ‘Photograph’, the SCM40s instantly unleash a thunderous, wall-to-wall sound that instantly captivates and engulfs the listener. And the bass! To say these ATCs plunder the lower frequency depths is an understatement: they go further, mining subterranean frequencies and delivering them as a powerful backdrop to the soundscape that is created before you."

"What these speakers truly excel at are dimension and imaging; singers are brought to the fore and you know exactly where they are, while instruments and backing vocalists appear in the sound stage with pinpoint accuracy."

"Some jazz proves the point here. Playing tracks from Gregory Porter’s 2016 album Take Me To The Alley, I was totally blown away by the atmosphere the SCM40s were able to produce, delivering ‘Holding On’ not only with great power but also with great intimacy. It was like the man was right there in my living room and singing just for me."

"But fire-up some well-produced sounds and the SCM40s will leave you in no doubt that they are certainly magical."

SCM40A-front.jpg
ATC's curved SCM40 passive monitors in Cherry finish are at Musicraft (Derby)

The curved SCM40 features ATC’s SH25-76 tweeter with a ATC’s renowned 75mm/3” Soft Dome mid-range and a 164mm, short coil – long gap (underhung) bass driver.  The three-way design and inclusion of the Soft Dome mid results in excellent clarity, even at high drive levels with bass heavy source material. It also gives wide, even dispersion resulting in excellent stereo imaging and un-fussy positioning in the home. The curved SCM40 also benefits from crossover revisions that have improved the loudspeakers overall balance and the integration between mid and high frequency elements.

Featuring the ATC designed and built 25mm Soft Dome tweeter, updated bass/mid drivers and crossovers housed in a curved, laminated cabinet, the first of a range of ATC closed-box passive loudspeakers. The second generation SCM40 employs ATC’s landmark SH25-76 tweeter, developed to satisfy the company’s long-established rigour in drive unit engineering.  

ATC SH25-76 Tweeter

Sharing technology with the renowned ATC Soft Domed mid-range drive unit, the SCM40’s tweeter employs a unique dual suspension system, designed to suppress rocking modes even at high power output levels. The ATC configuration of a short edge-wound voice coil in a long, narrow magnetic gap ensures exceptionally low distortion throughout the tweeter’s operating band and removes the need for ferrofluids, which can dry out over time, compromising performance. A complex-shaped, soft-domed diaphragm extends high frequency range and offers a smooth off-axis response. The tweeter’s 15,000 gauss (1.5 tesla) neodymium magnet has a black heat-treated top plate, which dissipates heat away from the voice coil to maintain high power handling and low power compression. A precision-machined 5.5mm rigid alloy waveguide provides optimum dispersion with a flat on-axis frequency response and resonance-free operation.

Hi-Fi Choice reviews ATC's curved SCM40 passive monitors

"Given a serious source and recording, the ATC SCM40 is superb - I know of no price rivals that give this level of accuracy, speed and insight. it strings the rhythmic elements of the mix brilliantly, punching out subtle dynamic inflections in a marvellously satisfying and visceral way. But then again it will have you fretting about how best to drive it for years to come, because you know it's capable of a level of transparency you'd normally only expect from loudspeakers at three or fours times its price. It's certainly a great speaker to commit to and build a system around....."

Hi-Fi WigWam reviews ATC's curved SCM40 passive monitors

"Giant Killers – ATC SCM40."

"I want an insight, I want to feel like the Guitar amp is in front of me, the kick drums are not far behind and to feel involved in the music at a very live and connected level. Nothing else I have heard in a small living room has managed this feat. These do it with ease, they don’t shout at you, and don’t need to be played loud to sound their best,  they deliver whether you are listening to Steely Dan, or Metallica, JS Bach or Phillip Glass."

"The bass is so taught, yet thunderously deep. My room is shockingly difficult for bass bloom, yet the ATC’s have everything under control. Deep and tuneful, in a way that is entirely new at WigWam towers."

"The bottom line.. I’m sold. I can’t live without them. I need them in my life and will have to make the change."

"Audition carefully, but please, do audition. In the right system, you would have to spend £10k to get anywhere close to this sound quality."

Hi-Fi Critic reviews ATC's SCM50ASL active monitors -

http://atcloudspeakers.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/ATC_SCM50ASL_Review_Hi-Fi_Critic_Sept_19.pdf

"ATC’s active filter crossover use all analogue circuits, company founder and designer Bill Woodman explaining this choice thus: “The (analogue) crossover filters are of the LinkwitzRiley type, are fourth order and critically damped. What is significantly different is that a variable all-pass filter is configured across each crossover point and is adjusted to ensure that the group delay through the crossover region is correct and therefore the loudspeaker system will exhibit a true minimum phase response. This helps to maintain accurate timbre of reproduced sounds as well as stabilizing the location of performers in the stereo sound field."

"The 200W direct coupled amplification in the bass promises excellent low-end power; the mid headroom matches it with a 150W feed, while the high frequencies get 50W, in fact equivalent to 200W headroom in view of the higher voltage sensitivity of this driver and its smaller program share."

"Living up to the performance advantage legend for active loudspeakers, the SCM50 ASL launches powerful dynamic soundstages of precise focus and great stability, allied to seemingly effortless low frequencies, the latter imbued with power, slam, grip and clear tune playing; in these latter respects it sounds rather more like a massive sealed box than a reflex tuned system."

"Like the ATC SCM50 PSL passive version reviewed last year, the SCM50ASL also squarely hits the HFICRITIC Audio Excellence level for sheer all round ability, and not least on grounds of a that truly massive dynamic range delivered by this active version. Without a doubt this is High End Audio on a budget. As befits a true monitor this loudspeaker system has little character of its own preferring to let the music tell its own story. It demands to be heard. I certainly enjoyed my time with it, and it is highly recommended for performance and value."

What Hi-Fi reviews ATC's SCM50 PSL passive monitors

"We’ve been using ATC’s SCM50 as our reference speakers for well over a decade. Over that time they’ve been connected to just about every piece of electronics that has passed through our test rooms, from budget microsystems (just for fun, you understand) all the way up to monster pre/powers that retail for Porsche money. In all that time, and with those many hundreds of components, they have never once let us down."

"Our chosen reference speakers need to be a transparent window to the sources and amplification we test, and these ATCs fit the bill superbly. In short, they are honest, even-handed speakers that don’t put a significant twist on the signal they’re fed."

"These are no ordinary drive units. The company’s background is firmly planted in the Pro world where reliability and high power handling are essentials. But these things are not ATC’s only aims. The company’s engineers value low distortion and dynamic ability, and have spent years developing these units, only putting them into production when they are sure that every box has been ticked."

"If we had to describe the ATC’s sound in one word, it would be ‘honest’. They don’t flavour or try to make things more exciting by adding a little treble sparkle or bass thump. They simply try to reproduce the signal faithfully."

"These ATCs dig up plenty of information, whether it's a nuance in Jay Z’s rapid-fire delivery or the texture of a bass sound, and render it in a natural and unforced way. These speakers don’t go out of their way to highlight detail. They just present all the information in a balanced, natural and convincing way."

"Yet we haven’t managed to find something that’s as satisfying an all-rounder or as practical to use as a day-to-day review tool. Considering the SCM50 was originally introduced in the mid-80s, that’s quite some achievement. It seems great engineering doesn’t date."

Hi-Fi Critic reviews ATC's SCM50ASL active monitors

"ATC’s active filter crossover use all analogue circuits, company founder and designer Bill Woodman explaining this choice thus: “The (analogue) crossover filters are of the LinkwitzRiley type, are fourth order and critically damped. What is significantly different is that a variable all-pass filter is configured across each crossover point and is adjusted to ensure that the group delay through the crossover region is correct and therefore the loudspeaker system will exhibit a true minimum phase response. This helps to maintain accurate timbre of reproduced sounds as well as stabilizing the location of performers in the stereo sound field."

"The 200W direct coupled amplification in the bass promises excellent low-end power; the mid headroom matches it with a 150W feed, while the high frequencies get 50W, in fact equivalent to 200W headroom in view of the higher voltage sensitivity of this driver and its smaller program share."

"Living up to the performance advantage legend for active loudspeakers, the SCM50 ASL launches powerful dynamic soundstages of precise focus and great stability, allied to seemingly effortless low frequencies, the latter imbued with power, slam, grip and clear tune playing; in these latter respects it sounds rather more like a massive sealed box than a reflex tuned system."
