Thanks, Rick.

I guess they're monitors, so not designed to look friendly in a living room (and they look worse with the grills on IMO.)

Is black the only finish? Any news of prices?

I do prefere this new look of ATC entry level speakers! I demo the ATC SCM11 last year and love them, and i demo the dyns after, and the sound was very close. 

Having two speaker that sound so close (to my ears) i've bought the better looking IMO, the Dyns x12! 

But if the look was this and the sound sig is the same i defenetly had bought this new model instead! 

You can not please everyone!  :grin:

Hi Hi-FiOutlaw

I also prefer the look of the new curved Entry Series monitors. Like I said before these ATC's look even better in the flesh. Clean, simple and elegant designs. Neat.

As for performance the new curved SCM11's hit their predecessors out of the park for a six and with the previous SCM19's not far behind.

All the best

Hi alchemist 1

Yes, the new curved SCM11 monitors reproduce low frequencies with better definition Smile

Btw, not sure what you mean by the previous SCM11's LF performance as "not so flat" :?

All the best

  A bit more oomph in the bass dept. Rick,

                My previous 11's always seemed lacking.

               Great speakers apart from the bass.

               Is the new model more listener friendly ?..........:)

The bass driver is the same as bought over from the SCM10 and previous SCM7, and SCM12 for the SCM11.

RE: ATC

Previously the tweeter was the only driver not designed and built in house. This has now been rectified.

RE: ATC

   So the bass will be flat ?

  Unless the new shape has a bearing on the bass response ..........:shifty:

Yes, the bass will measure accurate to the source material. ATC's heritage is in studio monitoring and their speakers are notoriously flat, honest and natural across the frequency range. Clearly that's isn't the sound for you - which is a good thing, as if they suited you they wouldn't suit me. If you want your boosted bass, stick with your Kefs.

RE: ATC

You can roll your eyes all you like, but fact is alchemist (aka fats, I believe) likes a non-flat, exaggerated bass, didn't find it with ATC, tried kefs and found it there. Argue with him not me.

A tad dramatic nonetheless.
