ATC SCM7 v.3 loudspeaker Associated Equipment
The associated equipment consisted of Parasound's Halo CD 1, used as both CD player and transport; Nordost's Silver Shadow digital cable; Bricasti's M1 DAC (since sent back); and Grace Design's full-size m905 studio Monitor Controller (the Grace m903's larger sibling, so to speak; report in thr April 2014 issue); and Cardas Clear Rev.2 interconnects and Clear speaker cables.
I did most of my listening with Lindell's AMPX class-A power amplifier. However, while the Lindell was going forth and back to John Atkinson for measuring (see January 2014, p.155), a friend dropped off a Miniwatt 2.5Wpc tubed integrated amplifier. To my surprise, the Miniwatt was able to drive the ATCs well enough to completely involve me in the music.John Marks
