Last year I had this plan to move up to the ATC SCM50 ASL (Active). However, it’s now a year later and a few problems have arisen with this plan: Cost… I just don’t have the money that I planned to have (house prices are rising faster than I can save the money); Looks… best will in the world and you can’t, IMO, say the 50ASL are a pretty speaker and doesn’t really suite a 2-3 hundred year old cottage; Listening room size… 12 months ago I was expecting our next house to have a massive living (listening) room, looks like that’s not going to happen now.
So I’m back thinking of the Active 40’s. I had the passive 40’s before and they were excellent. Everything I hear says the active version is even better. However it’s a couple of years later so I was wondering, at this price point (c. 8K) is the SCM 40a still the speaker to go for if you want to go the active route?
Cheers… just an idle conversation at the moment.
