SCM20SLs

Speakers are SCM20SLs in yew, split crossover and latest tweeter. I bought them 2nd-hand and was lucky as the yew finish is what I would have chosen from new. The stands are the originals for the first non-SL SCM20s and came with the speakers for an extra £50. They're a bit scruffy but what the hell. The speakers on the other hand are in fantastic nick.

The SPA2-150 is also 2nd-hand, in fantastic condition and one hell of an amp.

I previously had Celestion A2s bi-amped with MF XA-200s. Replaced the Celestions with the ATCs and what a difference. Replaced the MFs with the SPA2 and can no longer concentrate to read anything when there's music playing - an order of magnitude better.

The CD player is plodding on and will do until I can afford something way better, and the Pioneer does for SACD duties.

The Bryston is a solid performer and replaced a MF XP-100 some years back. Again, the jump in quality was entirely noticeable and quite unexpected as I hadn't thought preamps made such a difference.

Yearning for SCM50ASL Classics in yew with the space to do them justice.

Very nice setup spungey, thanks for the pics :) I do love the classic look of the 20s and the stands complement them very well :)

Very nice spungey, alway's love the 20sl speaker's & that's the finish I prefer as well, I just sold my 19s & was using Partington broadside's & I think they looked & fitted like they were designed for one another, have a peek at Benl's set-up as he has his scm11s running with them & look great, Benny.

Hi Craig,

How did you resize that photo? All the ones I posted came out in miniature!

Cheers,

Leigh

Hi Benny,

You're right about the Broadsides. I had considered them but have a bee in my bonnet about those Mauro Rossi stands featured on the ATC website. They fit the 20s perfectly and have that four-square look I find quite appealing.

Your speakers look something else by the way. I prefer the 'thin layer of dust' look on mine, gives them a kind of satin finish with so very little effort on my part.

in the pics url, change the 'm' at the end for a 'b'.
so, http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5135/539 ... 3b80_m.jpg becomes http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5135/539 ... 3b80_b.jpg :geek:
