    wtb ATC SCM40A or other active ATC speakers

    thanks for the reply, what pre amps do you use I have a conrad Johnson tube , a nuforce v9 and an oppo 105 - I`ll try this direct and through a pre` that I will test to begin with curious to know what effect warming the sound with tubes will have so far I`ve enjoyed the speakers for their clarity , detail, control and pace

    wtb ATC SCM40A or other active ATC speakers

    Thanks for all of your replies. I`m testing a pair of ATC SCM50ASL this week with the new tweeters I`ve reduced my preference to those and the 40A based on both listening preference and price Does anyone have a view on the maximum room size for either , or because of the potential very loud undistorted volume they are both capable of is this not an issue my listening room will be 9x5 metres , partly double height, they can go on either wall

    thanks Nopiano, very happy to check it out I`ve already listened to several pairs of ATC`s , 50 100 and 40 active with a few different pre-amps, enjoyed them all That's why I`ve decided to move across, I also like the idea that with a very strong following for ATC if they didn`t work out for me I could probably sell on without too big a loss

    wtb ATC SCM40A or other active ATC speakers

    thanks , never heard of them, but now I`ve decided on active I`m happy to think about other brands, I tried genelec , but they were too clinical for home use, they look interesting, but class d and active monitor might be a bit like sharpening a razor blade
  5. Hi, I would like to buy a pair of ATC active speakers preferably ATC SCM40A, but happy to consider 50 100 150 ASL active versions in good condition at an appropriate price relating to age Also happy to hear opinions from people who have owned these please pm any for sale Many thanks for looking

    Wanted: cheap and cheerful small amp

    cyrus iii, I bought it new many years ago, 20 plus, very happy to use it with mission speakers for many years nice well balanced sound and surprising loud with the right speakers I also used it for a while as a very nice pre-amp very under rated amp for its price point and a great size , the wife factor scores highly , easy to live with. Runs warm a-b, not hot , so easy to position original packaging Blew a fuse once , apart from that no problems. it did not work with sonus faber monitors , they are buggers to drive , not enough oomph, , i was told a psxr would have fixed the issue but didn`t try it, so has sat unused for a few years if its of interest pm with an offer good luck Steve
  7. bump for one of the coolest names for a speaker I`ve ever encountered gauder akustik isophone corvara, very star trek , cool colour too
  8. Hi, my daughter lives in Leicester but would need this to be boxed up in some realistic way so she could forward it on to me. I am very interested , would any form of packaging be possible Regards Steve
  9. Hi thanks I will try that looking for good amp, amps to drive a pair of floor standing SF Cremonas , they do well with a hint of sweetness so I hoped these might fit the bill
  10. Hi, very interested to discuss, are they still available Regards
