2006 ATC SCM11
“Are the SCM11S the best pound-for-pound speakers you can buy? It’s hard to dispute” ATC SCM11
In answer to the frequently asked question ‘What’s the best pound-for-pound speaker you can buy?’, the ATC SCM11S are always among the first names on our list of potential answers. They have a simple case to make. In 2006, ATC produced a blank-sheet design, using components designed and built in Gloucestershire. With their black speaker grilles and cherry wood veneer finish, the SCM11S may have looked a bit homely, and slightly retro by the standards of the mid-2000s, but they sounded superb.
Refinements and improvements in the quality of drivers, and the materials and finishes of cabinets, have seen the SCM11S comfortably maintain their place at the top of the pile – as multiple Awards (most recently in 2015 for best standmounter) attest. The best pound-for-pound speaker you can buy? It’s right up there.
