About ATC Professional Studio Speakers
ATC (Acoustic Transducer Company) is a specialist British manufacturer of loudspeaker drive units and complete sound reproduction systems, including all associated electronic equipment. All such systems and components are designed and built in- house to achieve levels of performance far in excess of the industry norm by adopting a thoroughly professional engineering approach to the issues of basic design, materials science, and production technology.
Formed in 1974 to manufacture custom drive units for the professional sound industry,ATC’s groundbreaking ‘Soft Dome’ mid driver technology was originally developed in 1976 and is still featured in the company’s current SCM25A PRO, SCM50ASL PRO, SCM100ASL PRO, SCM110ASL PRO, SCM150ASL PRO, SCM200ASL PRO, and top-of-the-range SCM300ASL PRO three-way active professional series loudspeakers. Constantly improved, it is still unique in innovation, and remains the only midrange device capable of delivering ultimate performance; flatteringly, it has been widely copied — without success.
Similarly, the ‘Super Linear’ technology found in ATC’s professional series bass drive units is equally unique — not only in its ability to accurately reproduce piano, but also the precise manner in which male voices are articulated. All drive units in ATC active professional monitors are powered by their own ATC- designed amplifier, optimised for the relevant bandwidth, and all amplifiers — working substantially in Class A — feature even- order-filtered active crossovers that are individually aligned and phase-corrected to ensure unmatched stereo imaging.
