    Positive-Feedback reviews ATC's curved SCM40A active monitors -

    https://positive-feedback.com/reviews/hardware-reviews/getting-active-with-atc-scm-40a-speakers/

    "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."

    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.

    "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."

    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."

    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."

    The Absolute Sound reviews ATC's SCM50 ASLT active monitors -

    http://www.theabsolutesound.com/articles/atc-scm50-aslt-loudspeaker/

    "The heart of every loudspeaker is its transducers. To ensure that heart is beating, ATC doesn’t leave its designs to third-party manufacturers. Each driver is a bespoke ATC unit, engineered and manufactured in its venerable factory in Stroud, England. Most recently, and after many years of development, ATC introduced its own 1" soft-dome tweeter, model SH25-76S S. It’s a non-ferrofluid, double-suspension design in a shallow waveguide. The 9" woofer is one of ATC’s top-drawer Super Linear models, purposefully engineered to reduce eddy currents and lower harmonic distortion. Easily the jewel in the crown of ATC transducers is the 75mm soft-dome midrange, model SM75-150S. Developed in the 1980s, it’s a dual-suspension design for better diaphragm control, greater heat dissipation, and higher power handling. Equipped with a huge three-inch voice coil, it’s renowned for its power handling and lack of compression. Per ATC practice it uses a short coil operating in a long magnetic gap (aka, it is underhung). This particular model is the pro “S” or super-version, which offers a larger magnet for increased sensitivity (92dB/1W/1m), extended upper-mid response, and lower distortion. To further extend response it is mounted in a “phase correction flange.” Like every driver in the ATC family, it is a massively built transducer that tips the scales at nearly twenty pounds—yes, you read that correctly. For one driver. The crossover is a fourth-order Linkwitz-Riley type, with hinge points at 380Hz and 3.5kHz."

    "The SCM50’s character is underscored by three key properties: One, midrange presence and immediacy; two, midband speed that borders on electrostatic territory; and three, a staggeringly wide dynamic envelope that easily puts electrostats and most cone loudspeakers of this size and spec to shame. In tonal balance, the SCM50 is an exemplar of ease and neutrality across the octaves. This is a no-nonsense speaker, not subject to hyperbole in any frequency range. Its drivers integrate smoothly, speaking with a single authoritative voice, each driver in step with the other."

    "The SCM50 has an almost eerie immediacy that seems to glean the intent of the musician before his bow touches the string or a note escapes his lips. And piano reproduction is, in a word, breathtaking with an extended range of soundboard weight and resolution that reaches all the way back to the touch of the player’s fingertips.

    It would be easy to peg the midrange dome as the only hero of this story, but it’s equally about the inter-driver transfer of the signal—just how well the tweeter and woofer gel playing above and below the midrange. If all the drivers were not equally up to the task, then the transparency of the midrange dome would be unrealized."

    "Is active for everyone? I’m sure it’s not. But for enthusiasts who are willing to open their minds just a bit, ATC might be the first call you should make."

    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."

    http://atcloudspeakers.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/HFC_438_SCM40A_CDA2_Review_Low.pdf
    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."

    http://www.tonepublications.com/MAGPDF/TA_073.pdf (page 138)
    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."

    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

    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.

    ATC P2 Specifications -
    • Max Continuous Output Power : 300W (8Ω, 1% THD)

    "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."

    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."

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

    http://atcloudspeakers.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/HFN_Mar17_ATC_P2_Reprint-LOW.pdf

    “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


    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…

    The Ear reviews ATC's P2 300w/ch dual mono power 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?"

    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

    The Absolute Sound reviews ATC's SCM19AT SL Active Tower monitors

    http://www.theabsolutesound.com/articles/atc-scm19a-loudspeaker/

    "Per ATC tradition, the mid/woofer features a short coil in a long gap, a massive ceramic magnet, and a long-throw suspension for linearity at extreme dynamic levels. The ultra-rigid basket construction appears sturdy enough to support an eighteen-wheeler. Per ATC practice these drivers have been designed and manufactured in-house. They are not off-the-shelf items from a third party."

    "Far and away its biggest asset (and this was also true of the SCM19) remains its fast, dynamic, and transparent midrange—one that anchors images, from vocals to violins, and establishes their palpable presence in the room.

    "Particular credit goes to the newly designed tweeter, which integrates perfectly with the midrange and bass rather than sounding like a separate sound source. The result is a near-ideal point-source coherence matched by transducers that seemingly speak with one harmonious voice. This trait can be heard with every piano note, or the draw of a violin bow across an E string."

    "Image placement is fastidious; at times almost startling in the way musicians inhabit their own space with authority, clarity, and specificity. In the same way an Olympic gymnast “sticks the landing,” there is a grounding to the orchestral soundstage that once heard is difficult to forget."

    " Whether passive or actively powered, does it do the job of reproducing a musical performance in a way that approaches the authenticity of the live event? Well, some may accuse me of heresy, but I won’t be passive in my appraisal of the SCM19A. There is no two-way loudspeaker that I would recommend more highly."

    Hi-Fi Choice reviews ATC's SCM19AT SL Active Tower monitors

    "Active duty - ATC’s SCM19 standmount now has a fully active big brother and it’s a very serious piece of kit says David Vivian."

    "If ATC has a secret weapon, it’s probably the way its drive units are engineered. The coils are wound edgewise from specially milled copper wire, providing a higher density of conductor than the norm. Along with new adhesive technology and ultra-fine coil-gap clearances, it allows extremely high power handling and excellent reliability."

    "The leap in dynamic headroom power has a remarkably profound effect."

    "Even if you’re familiar with the dynamic largess and gloriously un-hyped presentation of the standmount passive SCM19, this active tower moves the game on in unmistakable ways. In raw terms it goes louder with less distortion while exhibiting tighter control, wider and more finely graded dynamic contrasts, a deeper, harder-hitting bass and greater rhythmic impetus and drive. Yep, rather than peering through the window, we’re standing in the open doorway of the studio, here."

    "Clearly shot through with the solid engineering and acoustic expertise loved by fans of ATC around the world, the SCM19A is an important and effective addition to the company’s extensive domestic line up. Used in anger with high octane rock it will make most similarly sized passive floorstanders sound somewhat flat and loose. But it does the delicate stuff with great care and finesse as well. A better advert for properly implemented active design at a relatively sane price I’ve yet to hear.”

    David Vivian, Hi-Fi Choice August 2016.

    The Ear reviews ATC's SCM19AT SL Active Tower monitors

    "I don’t get the impression that ATC goes in for flattery in sound, it goes against the company’s pro audio ethos, their speakers are ultimately made for people who want to hear the good and the bad in a recording so that they can do something about it one way or the other."

    "And the active drive is a fundamental part of this speaker’s appeal, it confers and ease of power that is very hard to achieve with passive speakers. By taking the crossover out from between amplifier and drive unit you instantly make the amplifier’s life easier, giving it a far better chance of controlling the voice coil and thus reducing distortion. An advantage that is more obvious at higher levels where control becomes more of an issue in conventional systems. The SCM19A therefore sounds like it has huge headroom, that no dynamic peaks will be restricted and that you can play at high volumes without the distortion that makes the experience uncomfortable. But it’s not all about power, it’s also about articulation, this speaker can reveal an awful lot of detail even at sensible levels, and for the most part that is what I appreciate and to which these comments refer."

    "I could go on but hopefully the crux has been communicated, this ATC like its range mates is not designed to elaborate on the signal, it exists to let you hear it like it is. In this respect it sounds more like a studio monitor than your average domestic loudspeaker and what this does is focus on the playing, singing and performance rather than the sound. So ATCs are speakers for music junkies, especially those who like their music at the same sort of sound pressure levels enjoyed by many musicians. They are a blank canvas at the mercy of the signal, get that right and you have an unusually good loudspeaker, one that will keep you enthralled to the end of every album."

    Positive Feedback reviews ATC's SCM19AT SL Active Tower monitors

    “…also takes a company with diverse engineering expertise to cover electronics, mechanics, electro-mechanics, and other disciplines and this is rare. ATC clearly has the engineering talent required as they have been in business over 40 years and producing active speakers for many of them. The SCM19ATs are a wonderful advancement in the state of the art of active loudspeakers. You could easily spend three times as much on comparable separate components and not do as well. I strongly encourage you to seek out the ATCs and give them a listen.”

    The Speaker Shack reviews ATC's SCM19AT SL Active Tower monitors

    "When I was asked if I would like to review the new ATC SCM19A speakers I jumped at the chance with a resounding YES. It had been a while since I last heard the well coveted SCM19 speakers, but this time it is in the guise as the SCM19AT with ‘AT’ standing for the Active Tower versions of this popular speaker."

    "ATC have a long history in building high quality speakers with many of their components being made in house. This gives them total control over what is produced but it also means that they have the knowledge of not just designing good speakers but building them too. With many of their speaker’s studio grade and their active designs are some of the best examples of how to do active. With matching all the components together, meaning drive units and active crossovers you can be sure that the speaker has plenty of power and specifically to each drive unit as is the case with the SCM19AT which has a total of 182 watts per speaker at its disposal."

    "The SCM19AT speakers inherit similar qualities to its younger sibling the passive version which is great performance but this is enhanced by the synergy of ATC’s matching amplifier technology...."

    "The SCM19AT speakers inherit similar qualities to its younger sibling the passive version which is great performance but this is enhanced by the synergy of ATC’s matching amplifier technology...."

    "....I seriously recommend checking it out as it is a brilliant showcase for any system and speakers for that matter, this album should come with a warning such is its lunacy and will make you want to turn the volume up to 11. But the real test is can your speakers handle this and the ATC SCM19AT speakers handled it and went above and beyond expectations...."

    Hi-Fi Pig reviews ATC's SCM19AT SL Active Tower monitors

    "When playing the first track by CeCe Winans I was treated to a wide soundstage which instantly brought back fond memories of the imaging and timing of the stand-mount 19s. Through the 19As Cece’s vocal conveyed more of the emotional essence of her performance, drawing me closer to it. The combination of ATC’s amplifier and speaker technology is simply a match made in heaven, instantly producing better depth and acoustics than I remember being able to achieve through the passive crossovers of the standard 19s."

    "I’m a huge fan of a systems ability of pull off transparency, accuracy and imaging combined to recreate the performance and not just the music. The 19As dishes out this reward in spades."

    "I am accustomed to ATC’s abilities, but listening to the transformation of a speaker from a passive stand-mount design to an active version has been truly informative. Although ATC has removed the choice of amplifier and stand away from the listener in the 19As, they have also solved the problem of finding the ideal combination of driver/amp/stand with an outcome that always delivers music which is exciting and engaging."

    "ATC has a range of speakers that in my experience steps-up in audio scale but retains its revealing character. In short, and as demonstrated by the 19AT, it’s simply honest and insightful."

    HiFi Wigwam - An exclusive real review of ATC's SCM19AT SL Active Tower monitors by Richard Bowles (Rabski)

    ATC Loudspeaker Technology’s SCM19 Active Tower SL speaker system will deliver the company’s reference-quality audio from an elegantly curved floor-standing design, just 370mm wide and under a metre in height. Identical acoustically to ATC’s award-winning passive SCM19SL 2-way system but utilising the 19 litre volume in a slim tower format, the SCM19AT SL combines high aesthetic appeal with the widely acknowledged performance benefits of ATC active design to create a compelling speaker proposition for music lovers.

    The SCM19AT SL’s braced, sealed and curved multi-layer laminated cabinet, which is precision-finished in cherry or black ash real-wood veneer, provides a rigid and optimally damped environment for the Company’s acclaimed SH25-76 Soft Dome tweeter and 150mm Super-Linear mid/bass driver. Drive units are individually powered by an upgraded bi-amp pack (also proprietary), comprising ATC’s discrete MOSFET Class A/B modules, providing 32W of continuous power to the HF section and 150W to the bass.

    ATC SH25-76 Tweeter

    Sharing technology with the renowned ATC Soft Domed mid-range drive unit, the SCM19AT SL'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.

    ATC SB75-150 SL mid/bass driver

    The SCM19AT SL’s 150mm ATC SL mid/bass driver utilises a carefully weighted doped fabric cone with a 75mm soft dome – exceptional for its broad and even dispersion of mid-band frequencies. The cone is driven by an ‘under-hung’ (short coil/long gap) motor using a huge 9kg ‘Super Linear’ magnet system, which is unique to ATC loudspeaker systems. The 75mm ribbon wire voice coil is meticulously milled and wound in-house by ATC. ATC’s familiar under-hung motor topology maintains linear coil force and inductance, even at high drive levels, keeping distortion low.

    Electronics

    The SCM19AT SL’s proprietary two-way on-board amp pack design has been revised to reduce noise and distortion (a further -10dB @ 10kHz), while achieving a lower operating temperature for improved reliability. The design includes protection circuits for both DC offset and thermal overload. Mid frequency THD is vanishingly low at 93dB/0.002%, and a very wide bandwidth of 200 kHz ensures the accurate reproduction of musical transients. ATC’s Grounded Source output stage modules are fed by a newly developed two-way active crossover section featuring 2nd order modified Butterworth circuitry with phase compensation for each crossover point. The advantage of active crossovers is that their response remains unaffected by variable voice coil impedance, while the use of phase compensation enables phase coherency at the crossover points, improving the SCM19AT SL’s tonal balance and enhancing imaging for a pin-point stereo field. As usual system input is via balanced XLR.

    The ATC SCM19AT SL – the first active 19 in the Company’s history – is designed for optimum performance with the grille attached, although the difference in performance without the grill is minimal. Finished in anthracite grey, the metal grille fixes to the cabinet via hidden magnets. Designed and manufactured by ATC entirely in-house, the SCM19AT SL offers the ownership of a hand-built ruggedly engineered speaker system, world famous for musical accuracy and high power output. Like all ATC products, the SCM19AT SL is backed by a six-year warranty.

    ATC's new SIA2-100 amp/DAC/headphone amp is coming soon to Musicraft (Derby)

    Compact in size (2/3 width) yet offering high power output and exceptional resolution, this integrated amplifier with on-board DAC is ideally suited to driving ATC’s small & mid-size passive loudspeakers and a very wide range of loudspeakers from other manufacturers. Understated styling makes it easy to integrate with partnering equipment whilst its small footprint occupies very little space in the home.

    Tone Audio reviews ATC's curved SCM40A active monitors -

    http://www.tonepublications.com/MAGPDF/TA_073.pdf (page 138)

    "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."

    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.

    "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."

    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."

    https://positive-feedback.com/reviews/hardware-reviews/getting-active-with-atc-scm-40a-speakers/
    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."

    The Ear reviews ATC's SCM19AT SL Active Tower monitors -

    http://www.the-ear.net/review-hardware/atc-scm19a-floorstanding-active-loudspeaker

    "I don’t get the impression that ATC goes in for flattery in sound, it goes against the company’s pro audio ethos, their speakers are ultimately made for people who want to hear the good and the bad in a recording so that they can do something about it one way or the other."

    "And the active drive is a fundamental part of this speaker’s appeal, it confers and ease of power that is very hard to achieve with passive speakers. By taking the crossover out from between amplifier and drive unit you instantly make the amplifier’s life easier, giving it a far better chance of controlling the voice coil and thus reducing distortion. An advantage that is more obvious at higher levels where control becomes more of an issue in conventional systems. The SCM19A therefore sounds like it has huge headroom, that no dynamic peaks will be restricted and that you can play at high volumes without the distortion that makes the experience uncomfortable. But it’s not all about power, it’s also about articulation, this speaker can reveal an awful lot of detail even at sensible levels, and for the most part that is what I appreciate and to which these comments refer."

    "I could go on but hopefully the crux has been communicated, this ATC like its range mates is not designed to elaborate on the signal, it exists to let you hear it like it is. In this respect it sounds more like a studio monitor than your average domestic loudspeaker and what this does is focus on the playing, singing and performance rather than the sound. So ATCs are speakers for music junkies, especially those who like their music at the same sort of sound pressure levels enjoyed by many musicians. They are a blank canvas at the mercy of the signal, get that right and you have an unusually good loudspeaker, one that will keep you enthralled to the end of every album."

    The Absolute Sound reviews ATC's SCM19AT SL Active Tower monitors

    "Per ATC tradition, the mid/woofer features a short coil in a long gap, a massive ceramic magnet, and a long-throw suspension for linearity at extreme dynamic levels. The ultra-rigid basket construction appears sturdy enough to support an eighteen-wheeler. Per ATC practice these drivers have been designed and manufactured in-house. They are not off-the-shelf items from a third party."

    "Far and away its biggest asset (and this was also true of the SCM19) remains its fast, dynamic, and transparent midrange—one that anchors images, from vocals to violins, and establishes their palpable presence in the room.

    "Particular credit goes to the newly designed tweeter, which integrates perfectly with the midrange and bass rather than sounding like a separate sound source. The result is a near-ideal point-source coherence matched by transducers that seemingly speak with one harmonious voice. This trait can be heard with every piano note, or the draw of a violin bow across an E string."

    "Image placement is fastidious; at times almost startling in the way musicians inhabit their own space with authority, clarity, and specificity. In the same way an Olympic gymnast “sticks the landing,” there is a grounding to the orchestral soundstage that once heard is difficult to forget."

    " Whether passive or actively powered, does it do the job of reproducing a musical performance in a way that approaches the authenticity of the live event? Well, some may accuse me of heresy, but I won’t be passive in my appraisal of the SCM19A. There is no two-way loudspeaker that I would recommend more highly."

    Hi-Fi Choice reviews ATC's SCM19AT SL Active Tower monitors

    "Active duty - ATC’s SCM19 standmount now has a fully active big brother and it’s a very serious piece of kit says David Vivian."

    "If ATC has a secret weapon, it’s probably the way its drive units are engineered. The coils are wound edgewise from specially milled copper wire, providing a higher density of conductor than the norm. Along with new adhesive technology and ultra-fine coil-gap clearances, it allows extremely high power handling and excellent reliability."

    "The leap in dynamic headroom power has a remarkably profound effect."

    "Even if you’re familiar with the dynamic largess and gloriously un-hyped presentation of the standmount passive SCM19, this active tower moves the game on in unmistakable ways. In raw terms it goes louder with less distortion while exhibiting tighter control, wider and more finely graded dynamic contrasts, a deeper, harder-hitting bass and greater rhythmic impetus and drive. Yep, rather than peering through the window, we’re standing in the open doorway of the studio, here."

    "Clearly shot through with the solid engineering and acoustic expertise loved by fans of ATC around the world, the SCM19A is an important and effective addition to the company’s extensive domestic line up. Used in anger with high octane rock it will make most similarly sized passive floorstanders sound somewhat flat and loose. But it does the delicate stuff with great care and finesse as well. A better advert for properly implemented active design at a relatively sane price I’ve yet to hear.”

    David Vivian, Hi-Fi Choice August 2016.

    Positive Feedback reviews ATC's SCM19AT SL Active Tower monitors

    “…also takes a company with diverse engineering expertise to cover electronics, mechanics, electro-mechanics, and other disciplines and this is rare. ATC clearly has the engineering talent required as they have been in business over 40 years and producing active speakers for many of them. The SCM19ATs are a wonderful advancement in the state of the art of active loudspeakers. You could easily spend three times as much on comparable separate components and not do as well. I strongly encourage you to seek out the ATCs and give them a listen.”

    The Speaker Shack reviews ATC's SCM19AT SL Active Tower monitors

    "When I was asked if I would like to review the new ATC SCM19A speakers I jumped at the chance with a resounding YES. It had been a while since I last heard the well coveted SCM19 speakers, but this time it is in the guise as the SCM19AT with ‘AT’ standing for the Active Tower versions of this popular speaker."

    "ATC have a long history in building high quality speakers with many of their components being made in house. This gives them total control over what is produced but it also means that they have the knowledge of not just designing good speakers but building them too. With many of their speaker’s studio grade and their active designs are some of the best examples of how to do active. With matching all the components together, meaning drive units and active crossovers you can be sure that the speaker has plenty of power and specifically to each drive unit as is the case with the SCM19AT which has a total of 182 watts per speaker at its disposal."

    "The SCM19AT speakers inherit similar qualities to its younger sibling the passive version which is great performance but this is enhanced by the synergy of ATC’s matching amplifier technology...."

    "The SCM19AT speakers inherit similar qualities to its younger sibling the passive version which is great performance but this is enhanced by the synergy of ATC’s matching amplifier technology...."

    "....I seriously recommend checking it out as it is a brilliant showcase for any system and speakers for that matter, this album should come with a warning such is its lunacy and will make you want to turn the volume up to 11. But the real test is can your speakers handle this and the ATC SCM19AT speakers handled it and went above and beyond expectations...."

    Hi-Fi Pig reviews ATC's SCM19AT SL Active Tower monitors

    "When playing the first track by CeCe Winans I was treated to a wide soundstage which instantly brought back fond memories of the imaging and timing of the stand-mount 19s. Through the 19As Cece’s vocal conveyed more of the emotional essence of her performance, drawing me closer to it. The combination of ATC’s amplifier and speaker technology is simply a match made in heaven, instantly producing better depth and acoustics than I remember being able to achieve through the passive crossovers of the standard 19s."

    "I’m a huge fan of a systems ability of pull off transparency, accuracy and imaging combined to recreate the performance and not just the music. The 19As dishes out this reward in spades."

    "I am accustomed to ATC’s abilities, but listening to the transformation of a speaker from a passive stand-mount design to an active version has been truly informative. Although ATC has removed the choice of amplifier and stand away from the listener in the 19As, they have also solved the problem of finding the ideal combination of driver/amp/stand with an outcome that always delivers music which is exciting and engaging."

    "ATC has a range of speakers that in my experience steps-up in audio scale but retains its revealing character. In short, and as demonstrated by the 19AT, it’s simply honest and insightful."

    HiFi Wigwam - An exclusive real review of ATC's SCM19AT SL Active Tower monitors by Richard Bowles (Rabski)

    ATC Loudspeaker Technology’s SCM19 Active Tower SL speaker system will deliver the company’s reference-quality audio from an elegantly curved floor-standing design, just 370mm wide and under a metre in height. Identical acoustically to ATC’s award-winning passive SCM19SL 2-way system but utilising the 19 litre volume in a slim tower format, the SCM19AT SL combines high aesthetic appeal with the widely acknowledged performance benefits of ATC active design to create a compelling speaker proposition for music lovers.

    The SCM19AT SL’s braced, sealed and curved multi-layer laminated cabinet, which is precision-finished in cherry or black ash real-wood veneer, provides a rigid and optimally damped environment for the Company’s acclaimed SH25-76 Soft Dome tweeter and 150mm Super-Linear mid/bass driver. Drive units are individually powered by an upgraded bi-amp pack (also proprietary), comprising ATC’s discrete MOSFET Class A/B modules, providing 32W of continuous power to the HF section and 150W to the bass.

    ATC SH25-76 Tweeter

    Sharing technology with the renowned ATC Soft Domed mid-range drive unit, the SCM19AT SL'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.

    ATC SB75-150 SL mid/bass driver

    The SCM19AT SL’s 150mm ATC SL mid/bass driver utilises a carefully weighted doped fabric cone with a 75mm soft dome – exceptional for its broad and even dispersion of mid-band frequencies. The cone is driven by an ‘under-hung’ (short coil/long gap) motor using a huge 9kg ‘Super Linear’ magnet system, which is unique to ATC loudspeaker systems. The 75mm ribbon wire voice coil is meticulously milled and wound in-house by ATC. ATC’s familiar under-hung motor topology maintains linear coil force and inductance, even at high drive levels, keeping distortion low.

    Electronics

    The SCM19AT SL’s proprietary two-way on-board amp pack design has been revised to reduce noise and distortion (a further -10dB @ 10kHz), while achieving a lower operating temperature for improved reliability. The design includes protection circuits for both DC offset and thermal overload. Mid frequency THD is vanishingly low at 93dB/0.002%, and a very wide bandwidth of 200 kHz ensures the accurate reproduction of musical transients. ATC’s Grounded Source output stage modules are fed by a newly developed two-way active crossover section featuring 2nd order modified Butterworth circuitry with phase compensation for each crossover point. The advantage of active crossovers is that their response remains unaffected by variable voice coil impedance, while the use of phase compensation enables phase coherency at the crossover points, improving the SCM19AT SL’s tonal balance and enhancing imaging for a pin-point stereo field. As usual system input is via balanced XLR.

    The ATC SCM19AT SL – the first active 19 in the Company’s history – is designed for optimum performance with the grille attached, although the difference in performance without the grill is minimal. Finished in anthracite grey, the metal grille fixes to the cabinet via hidden magnets. Designed and manufactured by ATC entirely in-house, the SCM19AT SL offers the ownership of a hand-built ruggedly engineered speaker system, world famous for musical accuracy and high power output. Like all ATC products, the SCM19AT SL is backed by a six-year warranty.

    ED CHERNEY TRACKS AND MIXES WILLIE NELSON’S GRAMMY-WINNING “MY WAY” ON ATC SCM45A PROFESSIOANL MONITORS (TransAudio Group, USA)

    [​IMG]

    Veteran engineer Ed Cherney has added a fourth Grammy to his figurative trophy shelf for Willie Nelson’s tribute to Frank Sinatra, My Way. It won “Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album,” the same category Nelson and Cherney won in 2017 for Nelson’s Gershwin tribute album, Summertime: Willie Nelson Sings Gershwin. Also, on Cherney’s figurative trophy shelf are an Emmy (among four nominations) and eight TEC Awards, and he is a TEC Hall of Fame inductee. Since switching to ATC Loudspeaker Technology Ltd monitors five years ago, Cherney has never looked back, and both of his recent Grammy wins with Willie Nelson involve work that was tracked and mixed entirely on ATC SCM45A three 3-way nearfield monitors.

    “The ‘Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album’ category is crowded with top-end talent like Diana Krall, Tony Bennett, Barbara Streisand, Bob Dylan, and more, which makes our win all the more meaningful,” Cherney noted. “A big part of my job is to take this cold digital technology and wrest genuine emotion from it. That’s what I try to do, and when I find it, that’s when I try to stop.” Although he wasn’t present for the My Way overdub sessions in Nashville and Texas, Cherney served as the tracking engineer over five days at Studio 2 at EastWest Studios in Hollywood, and he mixed the entire project in his room Studio Ed, at The Village. Concluded Cherney, “The OD’s were recorded in Nashville by Tony Castle, who did a phenomenal job.”

    “I’ve tracked dozens of records in Studio 2, and I really think it’s one of the best sounding rooms anywhere on this Earth,” Cherney said. “It’s not big, and it is rectangular. But it sounds magical nonetheless. The low end is sweet and defined and impactful, the midrange is clear and balanced, and you walk out of there with plenty of air all around it. Buddy Cannon and Matt Rollings produced the album, and Matt also killed it on keyboards and as arranger. We had David Piltch, one of the best standup bass players in the world, Dean Parks, one of the best guitarists in the world, and Jay Bellerose, one of the best drummers in the world. And of course, Willie, one of the greatest men in the world. I knew that if I could catch what was going on with that group, it was gonna sound great.”

    Cherney used the ATC SCM45A monitors during the tracking sessions to make sure he was capturing the magic of those world-class musicians, playing world-class songs, in that world-class room. When everybody comes back into the control room to have a listen to what we just played and recorded, always is the moment of truth for me. I want to knock their socks off. If they ask to hear the playback again, and want me to turn it up, that’s usually a pretty good sign. Even with veteran musicians like these, if they can hear that they sound and feel great, it can contribute to inspiring a phenomenal performance. Playback on the ATC's helped a lot with that. And do you know how you know that you’ve got it? When they want to hear it again!”

    Until arriving at the ATC's, Cherney went through loads of different monitors. “I usually had to mix a bunch of songs on every new speaker that I tried, before I was truly comfortable.” he said. “Everyone who does this for a living knows what I mean; you have to get used to the ways a particular pair of monitors bends things. Then you mix to compensate for any shortcomings, with the hope that when you play back on other systems, there are no nasty surprises. That’s a huge amount of anxiety and stress! In contrast, I nailed the very first song I ever mixed on my ATC's. The relationship between the kick and bass was right. The snare level and EQ was right. The level of the solos, vocal balances, reverb and effect amounts was nailed. And now I know for sure that if I get something sounding great in my room on my ATC's, it’s going to sound great everywhere: ear buds, computer speakers, TVs, stereos, streaming, cars, you name it. Having that kind of confidence in my mixes has really freed me up and made my work a lot better. Hell, it’s even made my personal life better because I’m not living with that anxiety and I’m having fun, instead.”

    It’s a joy to do records with Willie, Buddy Cannon and Matt Rollings. Willie is so awesome that all you want to do is to please him to get his approval. Buddy Cannon knows how to successfully guide a project, but he steers with a light hand. On the album My Way, the music was so great, the arrangements were so great, and the musicians were so great that I really had room at the mix stage to let it breathe. All the elements were there. It sounds good and most importantly it feels great. There is a lot of personality, integrity and honesty, and that’s what I’m always after.” Cherney did the initial mixing by himself on the ATCs before spending a few days with Cannon and Rollings to finalize things. “I wanted Willie to hear it and to be knocked out,” he concluded. And to share the Grammy recognition with Willie, Buddy, Matt and the musicians, knocks me out. A feller couldn’t ask for more than that.

    Tone Audio reviews ATC's curved SCM40A active monitors -

    http://www.tonepublications.com/MAGPDF/TA_073.pdf (page 138)

    "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."

    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.

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

    "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."

    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."

    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."
