ATC SCM 19 AT - The Absolute Sound review

ATC SCM 19AT

ATC SCM 19 AT - The Absolute Sound review
  • 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.
  • Image placement is fastidious; at times almost startling in the way musicians inhabit their own space with authority, clarity, and specificity.
  • There is no two-way loudspeaker that I would recommend more highly. Neil Gader, The Absolute Sound, May 2017

ATC SCM 19 AT - Positive Feedback
  • I was tremendously impressed by the high end response of the SCM19ATs for its transparency, smoothness, and definition. I never heard a harsh sound out of it. It compared very favorably with the ceramic tweeter in my own Marten Django XLs, which is really quite outstanding. 
  • I immediately noticed the lifelike presentation of voices that really seemed to jump out from the speakers and exist in open space. In-concert vocal recordings were really special
  • Images were rock solid and it was easy to pinpoint the position of the other band members behind her. The soundstage had such a natural spatial presentation that nothing stood out as being too small, too large, fuzzy or floating. Everything just seemed to be in its correct place. 
  • The ATC's are capable of sounding very dramatic when the music and performance call for it, a result of their fine dynamic contrasts, tonal character, and nuance. Instruments and especially voices were realized with a vividness and transparency that were top notch. Additionally, for a small speaker, they could really fill the room and play very loud. 
  • This extended and tuneful bass really drove the music forward and made best use of every cycle of bass there was. 
  • The midrange was smooth and involving with no hint of problems around the crossover point. I've already told you how great these speakers sound on vocal recordings, but the same was true on instrumentals and large scale orchestras. Detail and transparency were also terrific for a speaker in this price range.
  • 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.

  • SOUND QUALITY: 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.
  • It’s an inky black recording from which the SCM19 extracts an enormous amount of character, the way the voice has been treated is particularly obvious but this doesn’t undermine its appeal. You can hear way down into the mix and appreciate the subtlety of playing from every member of the band,
  • Sonically, this ATC floorstander can face down most £5-6k passive designs that require at least £2-3k of amplification to fulfil their potential. That said, some of the contenders peddle their own wellengineered tech and look more impressive than the functional ATC.
  • CONCLUSION: 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 lineup. 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.
  • LIKE: Studio-class insight and neutrality; fabulous dynamics and bass; build DISLIKE: Starkly functional appearance
  • WE SAY: If you really want to hear what your music collection sounds like, look no further
 
The new SCM19AT 2-way active tower

ATC’s Entry Series was initially created to provide the hi-fi enthusiast a range of high performance passive loudspeakers incorporating all of the features found in ATC’s professional products.

To extend the range and offer a serious step-up in performance we have developed two active models for introduction to the Entry Series. The first, the SCM40AT (an active 3-way tower) has already been launched to market, quickly becoming one of our most popular models.  To complete the Series the SCM 19AT – an active 2-way tower – is to be launched on 21st March.

As with ATC’s other active loudspeakers this new loudspeaker shares excellent magnitude response, phase correction, improved distortion performance and greater dynamic range.  In other words, much higher resolution and performance.
