Spacious, Detailed, Balanced, Transparent, and Coloration-Free: Award-Winning, Emotionally Gripping ATC SCM11 v2 Bookshelf Loudspeakers Take You Into the Recording Studio
There's good reason why the stupendous-sounding ATC SCM11 v2 bookshelf loudspeakers have won multiple awards from What Hi-Fi? and proclaimed by the audiophile journal to be the "most talented standmounters anywhere near this price." Offering big, spacious performance and sterling transparency, SCM11 v2 is distinguished by its effortlessly balanced, smooth sonics and microscopic detail retrieval. Boasting an in-house-built dual-suspension 25mm soft-dome tweeter and in-house-made soft-dome midrange exclusive to ATC designs, SCM11 v2 delivers honest high-end resolution and coloration-free tones. Remarkable frequency control, low-end texture presentation, and a flat impedance curve further separate this incredible musical instrument from its peers. Infallible cabinet construction, an in-house-wound precision flat wire coil, and a six-year manufacturer's warranty are here, too, in case you ever pull yourself away from the sound prized by everyone from Roger Waters to T Bone Burnett. We're betting you never do. 100% Music Direct Guaranteed.
"ATC has raised the bar it set itself. This isn't just a step up — it's a running leap."
—Hi-Fi Choice, Best Standmounter Award
"The ATC SCM11s remain unchallenged at the price, with no other standmounter coming close to their level of transparency and rhythmic cohesion."
"The outstanding characteristics are: amazing dynamic capability; loads of detail and nuance; zero listening fatigue at any sane listening level; steadfastly neutral sound; and distortion so low that more typical loudspeakers sound poorly designed in comparison. There is absolutely nothing about the sound quality that I have an iota of reservation about."
—Doug Blackburn, Widescreen Review
