ATC SCM50 ASLT Loudspeaker

Audiophiles and active loudspeakers have had, shall we say, an uneasy relationship over the years. The squabble goes something like this: Active speakers (defined here as speakers equipped with on-board amplifiers and electronic crossovers) are the outsiders, creations of and for the recording studio—only pros need apply. The argument continues that while active designs tout tonal accuracy, they are just as often described as amusical and clinical-sounding beasts geared to play all day and night at ear-splitting levels. Some of these generalizations contain seeds of truth, but many are mere clichés from a bygone era.… Read the full article

Turns out, what I found was a show relegated to a shadow of its former self but not quite down for the count. My curiosity was soundly rewarded. I was reminded of the closing line from the classic Western film The Wild Bunch­: “It ain’t like it used to be, but it’ll do.” Sandy Gross of GoldenEar Technology wasn’t actively demoing the new Triton …… Read the full article

The 2019 Consumer Electronics Show

It’s no secret that the high-end audio segment of the massive Consumer Electronics Show has been waning for years as the industry has shifted its focus to Munich and the growing juggernaut of AXPONA. But this year’s CES was the death knell. After attending 36 consecutive CES events, this was my last. Nonetheless, it was worth going this year to see and hear some intriguing product introductions. Here are the highlights. In a radical rethinking of the traditional audio-component chassis and user interface, NAD introduced the M10 streaming amplifier.… Read the full article
