  • SCM 40 V2 Passive -show your setups


    1) show your gear pic
    2) list your gear
    3) comment if you think it works well for you- if not why



    I'll go first:

    1)pic

    2)
    Amp: passlabs 250.5
    Bluesound node2i streamer, dac, preamp (behind amp)
    Also used is yggdrasil- (behind the amp) - it's actually facing the back wall as I use a very short xlr interconnect. I prefer this look as there's less lights and less gear displayed.
    Cables: nothing special- copper

    3)
    I think it works well- system is very transparent, preamp delete is done (ARC ref 3 in background) as I prefer the more transparent sound without the Ref 3. The 250.5 is smooth enough as it is, I don't like it more smooth than this. Hope to try out Class D to "see" if my passlabs is actually "enough" power. But then, "there's always something better". Acoustic treatment is not finished so they're just conveniently placed for now.

        I am not sure what the hell I am doing posting the photo but here is my system.
        I thought I would run two power amps off my preamp -Onkyo 3000R and run my old speakers -Mordaunt Short MS40i which are 30 years old and my ATC SCM40 just to see how it sounded.
        I have an all Onkyo set up with 7000R cd player, 3000R preamp and 5000R power amp.
        If you are wondering why I have silver cd player I got it cheap saved almost half the price. It sounds the same as a black one.
        The power amp is a very solid 80 watts a channel and drives the speakers easily.
        The components also are very quiet and it is great to be able to remote control everything.
        Th other components are my old Spectrascan power amp and my old Rotel 950 cd player which I bought in 1996

          Confession time - I looked at this thread a few times, while scratching my head. I kept thinking “I don’t recall a series 7 ATC model”! Now I realise it’s v2, namely the current curved cabinet model. I have Rick @ Musicraft to thank for thinking ‘curved’ even though it’s not official ATC language.

          Anyway, my system is below. Left Hifi Racks holds Rega Fono 2, Linn Akurate DSM/2, Marantz SA14s1 SE, Oppo BDP-95. Central BCD Engineering stand holds Michell TecnoDec with Rega arm and Shure M97xe, Primare I32 amplifier, Hitachi FT-5500 tuner, Nakamichi ZX-7 cassette deck (covered). Various cables including Linn Silver balanced, Atlas Equator rca, and Van Damme LC OFC 4mm speaker cables.
