ATC SCM50 – Superb speakers continue to set standards at this price
What Hi-Fi Verdict
The ATC SCM50s have been our reference speakers for more than a decade and for good reason
Honest, balanced performance
Not the most stylish speaker
Every so often we come across rival speakers – usually of higher cost – that better these ATCs in some respect, whether it’s outright resolution, openness, stereo imaging or rhythmic precision.
Yet we haven’t managed to find something that’s as satisfying an all-rounder or as practical to use as a day-to-day review tool. Considering the SCM50 was originally introduced in the mid-80s, that’s quite some achievement. It seems great engineering doesn’t date.
