ATC SCM100ASL - the beasts arrive!

Recommended Posts

Picked up the ATC SCM100asl's from @ClassicalGuy today. 

After a chat and cuppa it was  a two man job to get these monsters into the van.

Have plenty of experimentation with placement to follow, but they sound pretty great in the approximate position I had the SCM19's.

Currently have the baffle centres 1.2m from the front wall, 1.8m from side walls - 2.5m apart and 2.8m from my listening position.

I've turned off my Rel sub - seems redundant!

Have taken a few pics:

Paul, you will be blasting hard rock at stadium levels. 

 

Congrats

Yeah they can sure do rock.

But also have amazing finesse and clarity with simple acoustic program.

They can play anything - as you'd expect of a first class monitor.

Try toeing them in severely so that the speakers axis crosses about one metre in front and center of the listening position. I heard Mark T’s SCM100 spkrs here in Perth and they sounded very good set up like that ...kind of like those big boxes just disappeared from the room (if you shut your eyes).

Thanks Steve, will try that in due course.

They disappear pretty well toed to intersect behind my listening position, just as well as my SCM19's in fact. There's a fair bit of space to the sidewalls in my setup - toeing as I have now creates a spacious sound without obnoxious effects from early reflections. Focus remains great.

How far were Mark's from the sidewalls?

I'm very jealous.  I spent weeks trying to work out how I was going to pay for them.  Ah well, it wasn't to be and given I would have to draw the money back out of the house loan it's probably just as well.   Love the ATC sound and will now work on saving up to buy some new ones.

Clearly a guy that is happy with his purchase, a late session is testament to that 🤙

Tobes, can you comment on any noticeable difference between your ATC 19s and the 100s ?

Good opportunity to compare because you had the 19s in nearly the same position in the same room.

 

Obviously a more solid bass foundation. 

 

But notice anything else about sound signature ?

In the modern hifi world with so much bling and crap touted as hi-end, these are the real deal.  Congrat's on the purchase.

Mabey the buy first, seek permission later tactic should have been used in this case. It would have been worth the drama.
