by TAS Staff | Nov 23rd, 2018 ATC SCM19-AT $9999 The active, two-way, tower version of ATM’s compact, passive SCM19, the 19-AT equals or betters the stand-mounted version across virtually all sonic criteria.

Its comforting warmth in the lower mids and upper bass further adds to the impression of musical scale and

John Atkinson  |  Jan 16, 2018 I was working on our video coverage of the 2018 CES with our resident videographer Jana Dagdagan, and as video is such a time sink, I wasn't able to visit as many rooms as I usually do. But one room I managed to visit and that stood out when it came to sound quality was Constellation's.

by Hi-Fi+ Staff | Apr 03, 2017 Magico M3 floorstanding loudspeaker It might seem strange giving any first-of-its-kind of ‘innovation’ award to a loudspeaker, as they are typically some of the most resistant to change products in any audio system, but the Magico M3 is an exception on two counts. First, the company is pushing the envelope in terms of materials science and technology, and second, the lowered distortion of this sealed box loudspeaker sets a

No fewer than seven Magico models are endorsed in the 2017 Buyer’s Guide and the most ambitious designs have served as references for Robert Harley (the Q7 Mk II) and Jonathan Valin (the M Project). Alan Taffel and Anthony Cordesman were not stinting in their praise for two models in the less elaborately, but no less uniquely engineered S
