ATC launches three-strong range of Special Edition speakers

The three new models are the SCM50SE, SCM100SE and SCM150SE, with each based on their non-SE counterpart. The new speakers are available in a range of limited edition real-wood veneer finishes: Rosewood, Burr Magnolia or High Gloss Cherry, with the ‘top brow’ detailing available in three different colour combinations.

Other cosmetic changes for the Special Edition speakers include rear vents and input panels with PVD coating, which claim to be scratch-resistant. The speakers have ‘Special Edition’ etched into them, just in case you forget.

Inside the cabinet you’ll find a new three-way arrangement of custom ATC drivers. Each of the three models comes with ATC’s SH25-76S 25mm soft dome, dual-suspension ’S-Spec’ tweeter and the SM75-150S 75mm Super Dome mid-range driver. The bass drivers differ depending on which model you opt for, with 9in, 12in or 15in units on offer.

Max is a staff writer for What Hi-Fi?'s sister site, TechRadar, in Australia. But being the wonderful English guy he is, he helps out with content across a number of Future sites, including What Hi-Fi?. It wouldn't be his first exposure to the world of all things hi-fi and home cinema, as his first role in technology journalism was with What Hi-Fi? in the UK. Clearly he pined to return after making the move to Australia and the team have welcomed him back with arms wide open.
