This thread has spurred me to look up the cost of these SCM40A, which is £6,800. I recently bought a NAP300, which costs £7,699. Then there were SL XLR leads and longer speaker cables, which cost the best part of £6,000.
Is it the case that the ATCs use big standard XLR leads? If so they’d be a fantastic value solution. They’d be a bit too big for me, which is very likely why I’d forgotten about them before getting the 300, but for those without the memory of a goldfish they look like a great option to consider. Could the built in amps really be as good as a 250 or 300? Maybe the crossover issue makes that an impossible question.
The dealer I visited recommended standard good quality XLRs , Mogwai I think . I believe ATC offer similar advice.
