“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.
