Hi Roger, I’d forgotten about your new ATC SCM100’s. How are you getting on with them? Are they something PolarBear should be auditioning in his speaker quest over on his thread?
Absolutely they are, Kevin.
But don't make the mistake I nearly did... writing off the passive version when auditioned with my NAP500 for a couple of weeks. I forget who said to me (on the forum) 'you must try them in active configuration'... I postponed the return of the passive pair to my dealer and Dave (ATC) came out and swapped the passive x-over for the amplifier module. After a couple of hours I could tell there was a significant difference. After a couple of days there was no way these were going back to my dealer... and here they stayed until my own pair turned up six weeks later in late Jan. These have been running for a few weeks now and are everything I had hoped for. The NAP500 and the B&W 802 D2 are long gone and not missed... so.. absolutely PolarBear, if you read this then get these SCM100Actives on your list of 'must listen's.
