If the interest had ever gone away I'd call this a mini #ATC revival. Both this Saturday and last we have SCM50A demonstrations...

Two customers, one objective - to find the best (ideally!) one box dac/pre to drive the ATC Loudspeaker Technology Ltd SCM50A active speakers!

Both have featured the Chord DAVE, dCS Rossini inc. Clock, Linn Klimax DSM (2021) and the CH Precision C1 inc. ethernet streaming module

Last week the Metronome CD Transport provided the source, this week it's all out streaming via Roon Labs

So if you're ever looking to hear active ATC's, saturday seems to be the day to do it!!

Let us know the results. I wish I lived closer, would love to find out which dac or dacpre works best with ATC. I see benchmark dacs used a lot.

Networks have become an essential part of the "Hifi chain" these days. It's the reason why The Chord Company have put so much emphasis on their streaming cables and now their development of the English Electric Network Switches

After great success with the 8Switch we are pleased to see them expand the range with the new 16Switch. Whilst we appreciate not everyone needs 16 network ports (ethernet sockets) the 16Switch provides so much more than just additional connectivity...

"The 16Switch is a two-zone, dual power supply, 16-port Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) device which has been optimised for music and video streaming. The 16Switch brings the proven benefits of the 8Switch to larger networks and features 2x independent rows of eight high-quality Gigabit Ethernet ports, which can be used as two independent eight-way switches or connected and used as one 16-way device"

We've heard the improvement independent zones can provide when it comes to power distribution so we've already jumped onboard! Add to that you can quickly upgrade the power cable to further reduce noise and distortion, I have no doubt this will become the hub of many top digital systems!

When you have reached a level of system that you are satisfied with, it’s imperative that all those vital connections are communicating and preserving every last ounce of that signal, in order that you are maximising the potential of each component in the chain and guaranteeing the very best result from your investment.

Despite the rather obvious statement, it’s still an often-overlooked part of any system specification or build, yet the benefits are all too clear to demonstrate and hear.

Nothing has been more true when it comes to Shunyata Research based in Poulsbo, Washington State who, since 1997, have been pushing the boundaries of power and signal carrying cable technology in the belief that ‘any system can sound better’ and, in our day to day experience, always deliver on that promise...

…even those who doubt that Ethernet cables can make an audible difference will be frequently rendered speechless (you know who you are!).

We carry a full and comprehensive selection of some of the best examples in the Shunyata range, so do get in touch if you would like to explore how your system could give you more of what you love!

Just a quick post today between demonstrations...

We're so quick to praise the Kudos Audio Titan series that we sometimes forget just how good the Supers are!

Here we have the Super 20A floorstanding speakers in walnut, they are on permanent demonstration at the barn along with their baby brother, the Super 10A bookshelf speaker

As the "A" suggests, both speakers work in active configuration to unleash far more music (weight, scale, clarity, separation... you name it!)
