I just emailed. They only mentioned the coaster option. Will follow up.

I recently put one of my big synth racks on a Jaspers wheel stand and it is so awesome, and all my studio racks are on wheels.

Now I am of course obsessing on putting everything on wheels. Everything, all of it. Maybe I'll get drum risers like Stop Making Sense.

Being able to easily move speaker positions to find that sweet spot but also move the studio monitors around sounds like a great plan.

OK, got the update: All of our stands can have casters if requested. Casters are $128 for a set of 8.

Thank you for your very comprehensive and interesting reply. I find the link between commercial and aesthetic decisions in the recording industry to be a fascinating topic. In fact, I believe much of the history of the industry can be viewed as a set of "tensions" between the two, with a strong dose of ego contention thrown into the mix.

Just one specific example of a monitor becoming a "standard" in the industry for largely commercial considerations is the B&W 801. In the early 80s this became the ubiquitous monitor for almost all the major Classical Music labels. Many of the CD's (EMI and CBS) carried "this recording was made using B&W Speakers" plugs. I doubt if they were spontaneous.

And do you have any stories about George Martin that you're willing to tell? He had a foot in so many areas of the field: Classical, comedy, and, of course, the merry Liverpudlians...I was reading how he wasn't given a Christmas Bonus by EMI in 1963 even though recordings he'd produced for them topped the Charts in 37 out of 52 weeks that year in the UK. After being told he was on a salary of three thousand pounds and so wasn't eligible for a Bonus, and then discovering he'd earned EMI a profit of two million pounds that year he decided to go independent.

The large majority of high end monitoring goes into artist based project studios where there are no paying clients to impress.

Here in 2020, the vast majority of people are buying high end monitors based solely on their performance, confirmed by the large number of threads in the high end section of this very forum (and other pro audio forums) on the subject of choosing high end, high resolution monitors.
My cynical belief is that many are buying high-end monitors based more on their fashionability than their objective performance.

A visit from Sir George Martin was a big deal when working at AIR. I didn't peg him with questions about his work/legacy. He got hit up for interviews about that all the time. It was more conversational. So nothing to share.

I've never personally met anyone who parts with their hard earned money for unnecessary tools, but perhaps I move in different circles to you?

But sure, people spend fortunes on golf clubs, sports cars, clothes and jewellery.
I guess some people have money to burn on luxury purchases in all walks of life.

Good post.

I think learning what 'necessary' is for you and your work can take time. Way back I went on an eBay spree to get a couple of different compressors of every main type of design. I just had it my head that if I don't have FETs, VCAs, opticals and tube comps all on hand I'd be screwed.

I've since got rid of some of them and grabbed less higher quality pieces instead. I've got no FETs or opticals now but I can do everything I need from my few good VCA and tube comps that I found myself using a lot. Experience using tools will dispel ideas of theoretical box ticking in set ups.

Buying for image and rep on the other hand is a funny one. On one hand it seems silly but on the other, if it wins you work with leads.... (shrug)

I gotta admit I hesitated with the Geithains as none of my leads/clients will know what they are and they don't look like much due to their coaxial, small box design compared to producers' porn ATCs for example. But my integrity won on that occasion lol

i think Pentagon has the insight on this better than anyone. Listen to him.

Aren't some overthinking this whole thing a bit? The point of pro is that monitors are for work to make something else. In my experience the higher up the food chain you go the more practical the decisions become. I'm not sure its any more complicated than that.

I can also add that in 20 years of importing ATC to the US, I have never - and I know ATC has never -given speakers away to anyone. When I am asked for free or "endorsement pricing" (which does happen) I say what I said years back to a very well known musician who had multiple endorsement deals: "Would a true working professional buy an 8-9K pair of speakers because you have them?" [the answer is they don't care what works for you, they care what works for them]. So free stuff and endorsements do not work at the top levels of the business- like George Martin and his son.

Sure. I can imagine he was sick to death with people pestering him with "and what was John really like" questions. Whenever I've met with somebody famous I've been careful not to bore them with things that they've been talking about ad nauseam for years.

I think ATC are in the happy position of not having to promote their speakers because there are plenty of unpaid users eager to do this themselves. I'd imagine free stuff is probably more likely to be coming from manufacturers that are struggling to establish themselves.

After having had the opportunity to listen to some of them, I don't think scm25a are better than kh 310 for example, except mids cone (which I have the ns10 for). Guess they were top notch some years ago, but not sure they can compete with some others nowadays. This is only my humble point of view.

If true, this would certainly save lots of speakers shoppers lots of money
And lots of room in the studio and backache from moving those 90 pound speakers

Microphone capsule design was mastered literally decades ago, the same for analog design.

The advancements in pro audio has been in the world of digital and yes some do prefer DSP “fly by wire” monitors and some models are very good.

But for me and my ears ATC SCM 25’s are based on traditional engineering methods and the laws of physics to solve a traditional problem presented by the laws of physics.

ATC 25’s present a very different landscape to the Neumann 0310, a landscape that contains considerably more detailed information to aid tracking and mixing.

But there can be nothing more subjective than monitors and my humble opinion is just as humble as yours.

In the audio world in general there’s a diminished returns as you go higher in price..(putting aside the brand or the “marketing” inflation of some brands).

I feel that with 4k today you can get a fantastic pair of monitors..
the ATC’s are expensive, and imho better than the kh310 on several levels..

If they’re worth almost double the price is a very personal choice..
for that 15-20% “improvement” you have to pay a lot more.

For sure they overbuild the magnets and have a special way of approaching things, and build every driver in house.. this is not a cheap decision, r&d to start with, machines and time needed to build every driver..
is much easier and less expensive (and labor intense) to ask a driver manufacturer to spec the driver for you or buy off the shelf.. this is one of the reasons why they’re more expensive..
The other reason is they need to pay for the people doing this, and are based in the UK.
There might be other reasons I’m not aware, but these play a big role for sure.

if you can’t afford or justify them and you’re perfectly happy with the kh310 then it’s all good (or any other contender in the 4k range, like the hedd or the ks digital)

It’s not that this will stop you of making/mixing great records.. all these are very good monitors.
Heck most top mixers I know still mix on ns10, go figure.

The point for me is how easy and fast is to detect (and correct) issues, without losing focus/musicality, while putting out a balanced mix.

In the end is also a matter of knowing the loudspeaker you’re using and having a great sounding room..
These are also important factors and how that loudspeaker integrates in your room is another BIG point.

I’m on scm25 since about 10yrs now, I got them used (they were immaculate) and at a fantastic price.
Later I got a pair of flight cases to bring them with me, if that tells you something.

the bonus is that they tell me exactly what I need to know and my search for a great monitor that WORKS FOR ME is done (instead of “upgrading” every 3-4 years).

Also worth to point out that ANY loudspeaker, no matter the price, is a compromise.. you can’t have everything.. it’s the law of physics.. it’s always a trade off..
the difference is that some philosophies and/or choices have less impact on the negative effects of these trade offs, and of course the price is not going to be low, which is also part of the trade offs.

I hope this put some perspective on why some brands are more expensive than others..

Btw I’m not payed by ATC (or any manufacturer that I speak about on the forum) unfortunately, they should seriously consider it though

You not payed by atc but at each thread you are. In the real life, a guy doing what you do, has a wage for.
It's amazing to see on the net people working free for a brand and have payed for.
Amazing world.

Cheu is in every thread. Even ones that have nothing to do with atc. There’s obviously a motive. I remember when I finally decided to move up the ladder and buy the end all monitors. I had made my decision that I wasn’t going to buy atc because I had worked with them and decided it wasn’t something I wanted to listen to everyday it was difficult because he derailed every thread in that direction. The monitor is only detailed in the mids high mids. Everywhere else its an average monitor if I’m being completely honest. For rock music and smashing drums you can get away with that in the low mids but for everything else I felt the need to be constantly turning them up to hear things and pretty Quickly ear fatigue would set in in the worst way. In contrast to a one year old speaker I’m working with now I listen at 70DB the whole day doing intricate things and clipping drums with massive results. I don’t see that As preference to me it’s obviously the benefit of new tech. They are decades old speakers and I expect that type of behavior from them. I enjoyed sound out of them very much though. it is a great experience. Many famous mixers use atc but not alone. To be fair many mixers use multiple speakers. To me they are high end NS10s for Working on mids. The price tag didn’t make sense anywhere else. The weight didn’t make sense either. If I’m spending that much on you with that much weight you better know how to twerk.
In the end no matter the physics. Preferences wins. Times change. Needs change. You can’t sell top of the line vcr video players forever when streaming is out

What monitor did you end up choosing?

Also - Cheu does like and recommend the HEDD- a much less costly monitor

I’ve already answered you multiple times my friend. Hedds are very very good monitors I just didn’t vibe as much as I thought I would in the end. If I’m being honest in the vibe area I’d go with atc over hedds. Hedds do give a little better overall presentation for working. Demo everything even the ones that gets lots of hate you’ll be surprised what you end up with

Thanks for that!

Yes, along with pmc’s, KS digital,(and to some extent Audio Physic or Geithain, although these are just much less known and not always an option for several OP’s).
Btw Neumann does great speakers for the money, I happen to prefer others at that price point.

On the cheap I do think that the kali and jbl’s are amazing, for their price.. of course with the huge help of dsp..
Not my first go to, but on he low end of things these are impressive, for their cost.
Of course there are better monitors, but not at that price.

.. btw I secretely work for everybody, but pssst.. don’t tell anybody...

I’m just sharing my experience, and I do like to support quality products.

On GS there’s a LOT of ppl who are involved in companies they’re pushing, I’m not. Not a single one.

I do pay my bills with my job, as a sound engineer.. (well in the last 9months the gov provide a part of that salary, but that’s a different story).

Hey fair enough.

I find that every part of the audio spectrum on the ATC 25's, 50's 100's and 150's to be absolutely excellent. (I don't know the 12's and 20's or 45's)

The bass is very tight and articulate and the 3D information is spectacular imho.
Actually almost disconcerting, I was listening to a Steely Dan track and I could sense the size of the room/booth the sax player was standing in when he cut his track - there's so much information present for me it literally dissembles a recording or mix.

The bass is very low distortion and it did take me a few days to adjust when first mixing on ATC monitors but the bass is so articulate and tight, clashing bass notes and timing mistakes are so easily revealed. I can monitor all day at around 78dB without any fatigue as it's actually distortion that causes ear fatigue (and excessive volume of course - true for me of any monitor) the lack of distortion in ATC monitors makes them very kind to my ears.

As I said, this is so subjective though, I can fully understand you having a different preference, after all I do to.

There's literally thousands of different audio tools out there and when people post pictures of their studio's every studio is filled with totally different gear with just a few odd pieces that are fairly common, like a Neve 1073 for example.

For me, when it comes to monitors the laws of physics and traditional engineering solutions do matter - for others not so much - it's all good with me, I fully agree with you preference always wins when choosing any creative tool

One other point in this decision tree I think is paramount above speaker brand - the room. In many ways a speaker demo is more of a demo of your room than the speaker. I know from experience room can account for massive differences in opinion about one speaker over the other. It explains a lot in threads here, how one can hear it so differently than another yet still turn in a great translatable mix. Bill Schnee’s old studio- his mastering labs tannoys sounded brilliant and every ATC I put in there was awful. Course it was an oval control room but the point is the same. It was all about finding something that had the inverse of the room.

So our opinions are perhaps most influenced by room - no matter how good the room and speakers are.
