    EXPIRED: ATC SCM100 ASLT - Active Towers

    When a mate had his in a big treated room, I can honestly say I would never need anything more for music. Amazing stuff.
  2. Based on previous experience with sonosubs, I would seriously have taken a day out to pick these up. Sadly, for me, it would require 3 days' driving.
  3. It's clear that there was some serious attention to detail in this system. I'm sure it will sound fantastic as well. Nicely done. 👌
  4. What frequency do these target?

    Are people really this dumb?

    Funny story a mate told me: His parents' house got burgeled when he was a young fellow. Amp got ripped out the cabinet, but for some reason the speakers were left behind. Probably too big for a quick getaway. Insurance sorted a new amp, but when he connected everything, there still was no sound. He got in behind and saw a cable broken off on the floor. Thinking it was a speaker cable, he decided to strip it with his teeth. Turns out its the old amp's power cable that was still plugged in at the mains....After waking on the floor a bit later, couple of fingers and toes burst open from the shock, he got up to gather his thoughts. Unfortunately he stepped, barefoot, on the now stripped power cord and got another good shock. [emoji23] Never assume.
  6. I have a set of diy ZRTs using the 7" slit cones. Whenever I see a pair come up cheap like this, my first reaction is to want to buy them....I hope some puts these to good use.
  7. Is the replacement parts exactly the same as the originals? If so, in all probability you simply got used to good sound over the years. Back in the day the 600s might have been in a league of their own for you, were as currently there's plenty of good sounding bits around. Could be.

    Mama Mia! There's a statement piece! They probably come with a mininum room size spec.

    I've only heard the 18s (at another gent in South Africa's house), but if these are anything like it, they will be absolutely epic.

    Avantgarde Acoustic Zero TA XD

    I heard the original Zero in a rather reflective room. My lasting impression has been how very dynamic they sounded. Would love to hear these in a better room. Sent from my SM-G900F using Tapatalk
  12. Beautiful speakers. Do you have any info on the cabinet construction? Sent from my SM-G900F using Tapatalk

    Do I need a power filter?

    Is there any particular reason you suspect a 'dirty' power supply of causing perceived brightness in your sound? Is it with the same recordings you experience the difference? Sorry, may be an obvious question. Is there a certain time of day the system sounds better/worse? Could be the environmental noise floor hiding HF at times. Lastly, it could also just be you. Its fairly well documented that humans experience sound differently due to many physical and psychological reasons. Perhaps someone has input on whether one would be able to hear dirty power coming through on high efficiency speakers when the source component isn't playing but the amp is switched on?

    Toyota C-HR - World's Ugliest Car?

    Out of interest, how old are the cars? I'm driving one of those Corollas at the moment as a hire car. I like how it drives - its got a certain effortlessness about it that I appreciate. The boot is ridiculous though. The sedan has a pretty decent boot on it, not that it makes a difference. Rear visibility is not great, but seriously, what do you want to see behind you through the rear window? Its got a reverse camera for reversing.... Sent from my SM-G900F using Tapatalk

    What a combo: Jeep and Fiat! I can just imagine how the parts dealers are rubbing their hands. ;D Sent from my SM-G900F using Tapatalk
