I've only had chance to listen for about an hour, but by heck these little blighters can't half sing !!!!!  :O :O

You mean two and a half times... Smile

They sound great out of the box, but they get so much better Smile

I was picking out bits of the Dark Knight, which were sounding stunning, and very dynamic. Watched Black Swan again at home tonight - great audio on that too -  the music swells, rather than just gets louder like it does on most systems.

                  Yes, 2.5.  Smile   They have the detail of ATC'S but deliver it in such a fun way. 

                  David, how long do you reckon these little jems will need to run in.?      Still in   :O  !

Dunno yet. You never know whether they're run in until one day it just hits you how great (insert product here) sounds Smile

Hi alchemist 1

Good to hear that you recall the transparency of ATC monitors Cool

Btw, ATC monitors have not been designed to reproduce soundtracks in a 'fun' manner. ATC monitors are engineered to be low distortion flat and honest designs which reproduce (amongst their other qualities) the stability and the power of the sound in a controlled, uncoloured and natural manner Smile

Anyway, you can also find out more about some of the engineering involved in ATC monitors here http://www.atcloudspeakers.co.uk/downloads/CompanyProfile.pdf

All the best

They really opened up, more air, more detail, more and tighter bass, better micro and macro dynamics ... . They sound clearly more balanced now than in the beginning.

Hi Jacko

For example. You'll also find that most ATC product related threads have also included discussions and recommendations for other manufacturers. Anyway, in this instance I have responded to alchemist 1 in his reference to ATC monitors.

I'm finding at the moment that amplifiers like the Roksan Kandy, Naim Nait XS, Pioneer A50, and even the little Leema Elements do the LS50's justice, so I'm sure your Pulse will work perfectly well with them.

 

David, do you think the Naim Nait XS would be an improvement over my Cyrus 6XP or a sidestep?

Tough one. To me, the LS50's sound more like I feel they should sound on the Pioneer - clean, clear, precise - but some who might want a more characterful sound would choose the Naim. I have to say I like both, and most of my initial listening was via the Nait XS. The Pioneer has price in its side though, and even the A50 did a sterling job (while other £500 amps didn't). The A70 does seem to have better authority than the A50, and you get the advantage of a few digital inputs.
