RE: ATC CSM 50 ACTIVE CARZY IDEA PLASE YOUR ADVICE!!??

Hi Eduardo,

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.

Hi Eduardo

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...

Hi,  

 

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.

Hi, Ebentjerodt,

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?

I am curious to know the outcome? Did you get the scm50s in the end?? As for being too big for your room, rubbish. You should see the small studio I have my diy active 50s in...!
