ATC-SCM-50T-pair

ATC SCM50 Active Tower now on dem

16 November 2022

We’ve been super-impressed with our new ATC loudspeakers so far and are now very excited to let you all know that we have another model on demonstration in the shop – SCM50 ASLT, the active ‘Tower’ 50 floorstanders. And these are absolutely singing!

Our demo pair for now are in the finish pictured (Rosewood) and retail at £16200; we’ll be receiving a brand new demo pair of SCM50 ASL active ‘Classic’ Series in the coming weeks (pictured below, retail £15600). Same speaker, same superb sound but in two different styles to suit your own personal aesthetics – a traditional floor standing tower or on small stands.

The Towers are causing quite a stir amongst our clients, in a very good way – we think you need to hear them 😉. Get in touch to arrange a listen – hello@adventuresinhifi.com or 01244 345576.

ATC SCM50 ASL adventures in hifi

 

The detail
The SCM50 ASLT (active) and SCM50 PSLT (passive) towers are designed to offer exceptional performance and enjoyment to the home hi-fi enthusiast and music lover.

The monitors’ ability to reproduce music and speech with phenomenal accuracy, transparency and dynamics lies mainly in the SM75-150S soft dome midrange driver. However, recent modifications that include the new ATC SH25-76S tweeter and enhanced port profile have brought about further improvements to all performance parameters.

Each drive unit in the active model has its own dedicated and individually matched MOS-FET amplifier, while the 234mm/9″ bass driver incorporates ATC’s unique Super Linear Magnet technology. The active crossover network consists of a wide band-width, electronically balanced input stage with high common mode rejection and very low distortion.

Like the HF, mid and bass drivers, all electronics are designed and manufactured in-house to create a no-compromise active system. In passive form, the SCM50 PSLT provides broad and symmetrical dispersion, excellent amplitude and phase characteristics throughout the frequency range.

Available Finishes
Standard Veneers – Cherry, Walnut, Oak & Black Ash.
Standard Paints – Satin Black, Satin White
Premium Veneers (surcharge applies) – Rosewood, European Crown Cut Walnut, Burr Walnut, Pippy Oak, Burr Magnolia, Burr Poplar.
High Gloss (surcharge applies) – Clear High Glossed Veneer, Piano Black, Piano White
