Do you play hi-res music?
I suppose the volume control on your Olive is digital, so you should consider you will lose resolution at lower volumes. For Red Book (CD-format, at 16 bit), you will be fine, but 24bit files will suffer (as it is a 24bit DAC-chip).
Thank you again AlmaataKZ.
I have had the Facts since Friday at home and I like them. From what I remeber I liked the ATC much better but it was at the dealers Home in a sepcific place. Tomororw I will have the chance to hear both side by side at my please. very exaiting about this!
the deal without the pre amp did not work so I will get a Chord and a Cary valve pre amp to try tomorow and deside wich one I will keep.

I've saw earlier today your system thread. I like to ask you something:
Do you intend to place the ATC 50 active in your actual living room?
Isn't the ATC 50 a bit biggish to that space...? Just a thought...
Rega RP3 / Goldring 1012gx > Rega Fono MM V2
Synology DS213 > QED Performance USB > Rega DAC > QED Performance RCA
Pathos Classic One > Inakustik LS 1102 cable > Dynaudio Excite X12 and some times BK XLS200 MK II
SBT > G&BL teflon line RCA > NAD 3020i > Supra Classic 2x4mm > Monitor Audio RS1
I do not think so. My living room is about 100m2 with a 5 mt high roof.
It doesn't seems so big in the pictures... or is in a different room?
is the same room but in the picture you are just seeing the half of it. it is 15 X 6. it is a uncommon space so maybe this pictures will help to understand it.

Seen a pic of ATCs in the 'active speakers club' thread. what kind of decision did you make and how? what were your observations from the home demo?
Still can't read the thread title without thinking of this:
