Movies place huge demands upon a loudspeaker, from alien invasions to a pin dropping, from a thunderous soundtrack to a gentle kiss - but the most important function is the accurate rendition of the human voice, most of which is anchored in the middle of the screen.

The SCC builds on the foundation laid by the S5 and entry-level S1. In common with all Magico products, the SCC has been designed using computer-aided technology along with the company's own customized software designed to reportedly minimize diffraction effects and internal resonance, while determining damping requirements. Crafted from 16-inch diameter extruded aluminum with half-inch thick walls similar to the S5, the curvilinear enclosure of the SCC allegedly provides the rigidity and mass necessary to ensure optimum performance from its four- driver, three-way acoustic suspension enclosure. The driver complement consists of two newly-designed seven-inch woofers, Magico's proprietary five-inch Nano-Tec midrange, and a Beryllium diaphragm tweeter.

Included with the SCC to provide additional support is an integrated, yet removable, base. As with all S-Series loudspeakers, the SCC is available in a variety of finishes, including Magico's own satin M-COST and high gloss paint to fit in a wide variety of living environments.

The US Retail Price of the Magico SCC will start at $16,800. Delivery will begin in the first quarter of 2013.
