  1. I've listened to the ATC SCM150ASLT - tower series - powered. Amazing mids - arguably one of the best mids on the planet. Warm, detailed, fast, textured, deep sound stage - amazing! The new in-house tweeter and the mid driver are world class. But even with the 15" woofer of the SCM150 - it was not a bass heavy presentation. Bass was not a strong point of the ATC speaker - but mids are 5 star. It's a matter of taste - but ATC is a great speaker. As a good comparison - the PMC BB5se has killa bass with its 15" driver and transmission line configur
  2. Re-post - price is negotiable / offers welcome. Purchased new from local supplier just over 3 years ago. Still using stock tubes with total hour count of 1,625 hours over 3 years. Unit is in perfect working condition and is pristine in appearance. Unit is complete with manual, QC sheets, power cable, screw driver, remote control, and original box. Remote control has hardly been used at all. Also have a full set of spare tubes for the unit which are brand new – Sovtek 1 x 6550WE, and 4 x 6H30. Really loved this unit. Very good user interface. I
  3. Further information: EMT's cream of the crop cartridge. Sound is clear, precise, and beguiling. Like the clouds went away and the sky is crystal clear and the sun in shining. Heavy unit at 18g. Diamond, alnico, gold plated. Purchased new about 3 years ago from Australia supplier - first installed 11/2/17. Last installed was 9/12/19. Total logged hours is 536 hours (yes written down and recorded for this unit since purchasing) - but listening hours would be far less - probably half of this - say 300 real hours of listening. Not used often enough. Burn in hap

  5. Hi Paul Hope you are well. Are you interested in a M10 pre amp or SA-Ref power amp? regards Ken
  6. Agree with Aperalim. The type/brand of binding post makes a difference. The Furutech Torque Guard binding posts - when used - hold spade connectors in exceptionally well. When tightening the screw it literally torques down the spade like a torque wrench. Very cool to use - very smart design.
  7. Hi Ray. I don’t have the 100c but I still have the original cdt100 gathering dust on the shelf. Man I’ve had it for almost 20 years. Um, my experience might be relevant and I hope it helps. My thoughts: one of the best looking pieces of hifi equipment ever. But some might hate the Blue light that is always on. having the option to run via tubes is nice. build quality is great. remote is ok but the face eventually will fall off. Held on with some glue. some might find the CD spinning drive noisy. I was okay with it. love that you have tubes for headphone
  8. I upgraded an Origin Live Zephyr tonearm to silver a long time ago. Didn't notice much improvement going down this route.
  9. Forgot to mention - a good thing to do will be to demo a few subwoofers in your room to help you decide. Find a good supplier near you that will help you with this. If you have problems with wooden floors then look at isolation - like Auralex subdudeII or similar products. After burn in and fine tuning - you may want to look at upgrading the speaker cable, upgrading power cable, and fuse. Good luck bro
  10. Hi Jol - can't believe you have not had one reply yet from the friendly folk on stereonet. Focal 906 - nice book shelf man. From my experience I think you will love the REL subwoofers. The T5i is probably a good match for your room size - even the REL calculator recommends this model and a single unit. I think the room is going to be the biggest factor in any setup. Yes you can have too much bass - some rooms have boom and it can be tricky to fix bass problems. Matching a sub to your speaker and room is a good tip. Only way to know for sure it
  11. I doubt you'll find a "good" setup to listen to in a hifi store in Perth. Or most hifi stores for that matter. But I have not listened to them all or a lot by any measure - but 9 out of 10 I go to sound terrible or ok. This includes places in Singapore, Hong Kong, Bangkok, and England. Dan at Addicted to Audio has a decent sound in his demo room in Perth. Good luck
  12. I like your setup too snavedivad. Simple and classic. You've also got the Stax headphones going as well. Well done. I know your pain as well - as my phono has just shat itself and will need repairs.
