  2. Even some of the finest facilities in the world incorporate subwoofers to support the mains. SCM150A’s and SCM300A’s all being supported by SCM0.1/15SL Pro’s -
  3. It also makes sense to use a subwoofer with SCM100’s and SCM150’s. The goal is to effectively align/calibrate/dial in a subwoofer so that the subwoofer integrates seamlessly with the mains and disappears into the soundstage with a deep, sharp, tight fisted, fast and powerful punchy sub bass. Get it right and a subwoofer can make the most profound difference to the overall performance of the system.

  5. I believe realism requires power and even if the mains go down to 20Hz a subwoofer should still be incorporated because ime a subwoofer can inject power into a system like no other component can.
  6. Yes, I am serious about using a sub/s with SCM150’s. A subwoofer is the most important component. Fwiw, I used a pair of E-112’s with SCM100A’s. Btw, with all things being equal the sub/s would be used in the same/existing room as the SCM150’s.

  8. Thanks and I’ve not heard the KC62 yet.
  9. Yes, the Fathom v2 Series has no line outputs to feed an external power amplifier or active speakers. At the moment our client is using the crossover built into the amplifier. Later on he’s looking to add a CR-1 active subwoofer crossover. E Series subs have a true two-way, 4th order Linkwitz-Riley design, with a low-pass filter feeding the subwoofer's amplifier and a high-pass filtered signal exiting its line outputs.
  10. Reference 3’s with suitable electronics might be better but when it comes to reproducing fq’s up to 100Hz a subwoofer from a specialist in the field such JL Audio and as an example their Fathom f112 v2 will show Reference 3’s and for that matter Reference 1’s and Reference 5’s a clean pair of heels -

  12. Yes, and even at a RRP of £7.5k the Fathom f212 v2 offers superb VFM although it has still a way to go to match the Gotham g213 v2 which is the most impressive and even at £17k is the best VFM component I have experienced so far. Anyway and even though an E-110, E-112, Fathom f110 v2, Fathom f112 v2 and the Fathom f113v2 would have easily supported SM40A's, SCM50A's, SCM100A's and SCM150A's accordingly, however after having experienced the manner in which the Fathom f212 v2 also couples to the upper body, our client wasn't going to settle for anything less and pushed the boat out for a Fa

  14. Ime ATC monitors form a first class match with JL Audio subwoofers. The E-110 and the E-112 are excellent starters and partly and crucially because these subs have an on board active crossover which can provide a high pass filtered output to the SCM40A's, while delivering a low pass filtered signal to the internal amplifier. From your pre amp, pre out and into line in on the sub. And then line out from the sub (using RCA to XLR cables) to the SCM40A's. Then set the crossover ideally at a minimum of 60Hz and adjust phase and polarity accordingly. Btw, and fwiw, a client upgraded hi
  15. Ime between 1998 - 2008 DAC's were not as popular because in the main the performance of CDP's had improved significantly so in most cases offered performance as good as or superior to adding a DAC. Around 2008 onwards with streaming starting to get into gear and with CDP sales slowing down DAC's sales started to increase and the rest is history. Back to 1996/1997 DVD had been launched offering DD/DTS soundtracks and many big manufacturers in particular routed more of their resources into AV components, followed by flat screens/plasma and then from 2007 onwards into Blu Ray. Probably the
  16. I think it's because from around 1990 DAC's and to a lesser extent CD transports started to hit the market and were popular for the next eight years or so. This was the period that the PD-93 the PD-95 were available. Instead of replacing their CDP's existing players quite a lot of users added DAC's and with some replacing their CDP's with a CD transport instead. I believe this affected sales of the PD-93 and the PD-95.
  17. Ime, if using line level in particular then to do the job effectively using a dedicated in built or an external crossover is essential. And in the main using a low crossover point wastes the potential benefits of a subwoofer. Better to unburden the mains as much as possible and pass the LF burden onto the subwoofer to deal with. Using a low crossover frequency can negate a lot of the performance gains. Fwiw, I generally find 90Hz to be the sweet spot The goal is to effectively aligned/calibrated/dialled in a subwoofer so that the subwoofer integrates seamlessly with the mains and disappe
  18. As good as the PD-91 is however the PD-95's overall build, fit, finishing and performance are a class above the PD-91. This is no mean feat either.
  19. e-b the PD-91 was a top of the range player, then replaced by the and top of the range PD-93 which in turn was then replaced by the and top of the range PD-95.
  20. I hate to say it but for the life of me I can't now remember reason why I posted that list. If and I hope I do recall the reason then rest assured I'll post accordingly. In the meantime sorry.
