ATC introduces SCM12 Pro nearfield monitor
ATC announces availability of SCM12 Pro high-performance, passive nearfield monitor. The SCM12 Pro is an all-new high-performance, two-way compact passive monitor, with a compact, installation-friendly footprint ideally suited to nearfield monitoring as well as multichannel music and post-production applications. At under 1,150 GBP ex. VAT per pair, the SCM12 Pro is the most affordable model in ATC's professional range of loudspeakers. The tweeter is a 25mm/one-inch soft-dome designed around ATC's unique dual-suspension technology. Unlike conventional tweeters, this precision part employs two suspensions, offering far greater control of the voice coil and dome motion, especially at higher sound pressure levels. The result is an extended high-frequency response with greater clarity and definition. Listener fatigue is also greatly reduced, resulting in users being able to work for longer periods with greater accuracy. At the lower end of the frequency spectrum, mid/bass reproduction is handled by ATC's 150mm/six-inch proprietary CLD drive unit. Optionally, the speakers can be partnered with ATC's own range of stereo power amplifiers. The 150W-per-channel P1 Pro dual-mono power amplifier (priced at 2,165 GBP ex. VAT) is ideally suited in terms of power output and outstanding resolution. The combination of SCM12 Pro speakers and the P1 Pro amplifier is priced at a package price of 2,980 GBP ex. VAT. Available from 3rd October 2016. [source]
