    Dunkboy has owned them and loves them.

    I've heard them on demo a couple of times but prefered the ATC passive ranges.

    I've since bought a pair of SCM 35s. Love them. Great sound.

    Compared to the actives I'd say they are easier on the ear and a bit more open. Need a bit of power though.

    My dealer is www.signals.demon.co.uk who is very helpful indeed.

    As a side note, there seems to be a growing swell towards Genelec actives here from some people. Just gives you a basis for comparison.

    Anyway, since 'getting into' ATC, I like their speakers overall and would certainly recommend a demo to anyone.

    I've had experience of some of the bigger active models....superb dynamics and the ability to go very loud.
    The overall sound doesn't really suit what I like,tending to be a bit "forward" overall,but they really are very good speakers and well worth looking at.
    Also worth looking at are Meridian actives,for comparison.
