Incredibly Accurate ATC SCM40 v2 Tower Loudspeakers Provide Uncanny Insight Into Your Music: Hear Deeper into Every Recording with Astonishing Transparency
Just how exhaustively revealing and see-through clear are the sonorously musical ATC SCM40 v2 tower loudspeakers? Enough that we think they should actually come with a warning informing listeners that they're about to expose so much detail, information, texture, and depth from their recordings, that they might change their opinions on the production on some of their most beloved recordings. Benefiting from in-house-made tweeters, 75mm soft-dome midrange drivers, and 164mm bass drivers exclusive to ATC designs, the staggeringly insightful SCM40 v2 plays with wall-to-wall openness and pinpoint accuracy. If it's in the recording, SCM40 v2 will lay it out on tremendously wide soundstages. All the good, and, if it's there, anything else. They're that special. Boasting reference-setting coherency and seamless integration between the driver and midrange, the tremendously powerful SCM40 v2 also delivers prodigious bass and astonishing attack. Backed by a six-year manufacturer's warranty, tower loudspeakers in this price range don't come any better – or more transparent. 100% Music Direct Guaranteed.
