The ATC SCM Series are the first professional studio monitors to feature a custom-designed 3” mid-range driver for enhanced detail and clarity. The ATC SCM25A Pro also features a 7” bass driver to deliver an extended low frequency response. Designed for near or mid-field monitoring, the SCM25A Pros are perfect for professional producers, engineers and artists.
The SCM25A Pro is the smallest in the SCM Series and features a 25 mm neodymium soft dome tweeter, a hand-built 3” soft dome mid driver, and a hand-built 7˝ carbon-paper cone bass driver. The built-in 235 W class A/B 3-way amplifier delivers a crystal-clear frequency response even at high volumes. SCM Series monitors undergo individual frequency, gain and phase optimization at the ATC manufacturing facility.
Unlike most studio monitors, the SCM Series monitors aren’t going to make your music sound better, they’re going to point out every little flaw in your mix, and that’s the point. Hi-fi speakers are great for listening to records, but when you’re actually making records you need a neutral monitor that reveals as much information as possible.
Speakers with hyped lows and highs cause engineers to create inverse mixes that are weak and dull. Because SCM Series monitors offer a flat, neutral frequency response, you can make more informed decisions and create better mixes faster.
Most two-way speakers place the crossover frequency between 1.5 kHz and 2 kHz which often creates an unbalanced midrange, resulting in a lack of clarity. ATC SCM Series monitors feature a custom 3” driver that focuses on 380 Hz - 3.5 kHz, allowing you to monitor your midrange with more accuracy.
The ATC SCM Series offers high-performance in the most compact form possible. While SCM Series monitors are right at home sitting on the meter bridge in a recording studio, they’re equally at home in many other settings, such as post-production houses or rack-mounted in broadcast studios.

I manage Blackbird Audio Rentals and would love to give a review based on personal use. Still, I can't because every A-List engineer and producer in town has the ATCs constantly booked and rented on their projects, so I never have them here to listen to.
These speakers are a dream come true. Immediately my work began to translate better. With my old set of monitors, I had to work at much higher volumes to get any sort of accuracy in the low end and top. But what makes these so special is that at any volume, every part of the spectrum is accurately represented. Punchy at any volume. Don't expect the fun, explosive bass response like PMC's, but the "holographic" auditory sensation that these provide is second to none. Quality like this will never be cheap, but it will always be worth it.
Not in a million years would I have ever dreamed I would spend south of 10k on a set of monitors for my project studio, but I did. To complete my new hybrid setup I took the plunge. A couple factors that went into my decision to choose these.
1) reading reviews, listening to what others have to say
2) the companies world wide reputation.
3) no imported parts, 100% manufactured in England
4) the sound, again the sound. When you sit down in the sweet spot, and these speakers are coming at you, you will feel like you have died and gone to heaven. The level of detail is very difficult to describe,
5) no DSP or computer assisted processing, just raw analog audio.
The perfect companion for my new NEVE 8424.
When considering all the amazing monitors that are out there, I would like to thank Joe Dickenson, at VK for reassuring me that I made the right discussion,
Excellent speakers all the way!
I absolutely love my ATC speakers! I have a 7.1.4 setup with 3 ATC SCM25’s and 8 scm12i pro’s. The listening field is amazingly transparent, like you don’t feel like the sound is coming from speakers. The accuracy and detail of what I hear while working really enables me to make quick and accurate decisions. VK was incredibly helpful getting me going.
Excellent speakers!!! Full range with great detail across the freq spectrum. Very happy and satisfied with these speakers.
These speakers are life changing. They make music more fun and brutally revealing than it’s ever been. Mixing and producing on them is a joy, 10/10 would recommend anyone pick these up. It’ll be the best purchase you make.
Detail like I’ve never heard before. Excellent choice for my mix room.
These speakers are an amazing three dimensional experience! So glad I bought them. These will force you to create a great mix. So glad I bought them.
The best purchase ever!!! Have used many and this is my forever nearfields!!! Josh you da man!!!!! Thanks for tour help!!!!
Great to work with. Less ear fatigue. Very clear mods and highs. Glad I bought them
The best!! Mixes go quicker hearing all of the mid-range with this 3-way speaker!!
This are the truth! Replaced my Barefoot MM45's
Woww... My mixes got so much more sauce now! My cats love sleeping on them too!!!
Only mid-field speaker I’ve ever liked.
Easily the best speakers in this size and price category. I listened to everything else and these speakers were the most honest and, equally important, pleasing to the ear. I won’t disparage the others by name because they are just fine and each company has their adherents. But ATC has set the industry standard.
These are the most accurate speakers on its category. The midrange tells me everything I need to know with the utmost detail. I was afraid that the low end would not be enough for my needs (mixing/mastering) but I couldn’t be happier to what the SCM25A Pro are capable of. Cheers to one of my best purchases in almost 25 years of music making.
These are not overly flattering speakers. They provide the truth and are great for mixing. My biggest concern going in was the low end but there is plenty for me and my music. I would buy them again in a heartbeat.
These are fantastic monitors that have incredible transient detail and great midrange.
ATC's mid-dome midrange driver is famous for the resolution it provides. The stories are true! I upgraded to the 25's about 3 months ago and can't believe that I waited so long to do so. Before I was working on Genelec's which had quite obscured midrange detail, so I always struggled with setting the right vocal levels. These ATC's leave no stone unturned and let you know exactly what is going on. Dead flat, so not a flattering sounding speaker like some. They tell the truth for sure.
