ABKCO Records has installed a stereo pair of ATC SCM50ASL Pro active, three-way monitor speakers in the company's pre-production listening environment, where they are primarily used for archive research, track sequencing and quality control of digitally re-mastered material at its Manhattan facility.

"They're very musical and have great midrange, and they're so accurate," said chief audio engineer and tape archive researcher Teri Landi of the ATC monitors. "The facility that I have here is a pre-production studio that contains vintage and state-of-the-art equipment." One of Landi's tasks is to research the company's archive of original analog recordings. "I go through the tapes and listen, A/B-ing them to figure out what is a source master and what is a copy. I don't suffer from any kind of ear fatigue when I've listened to these [on the ATC monitors] for a couple of hours. I don't get at all fatigued from the high end. And I find them to be very true and very revealing. I can listen more critically for longer with these speakers."
