That is a fantastic choice, match made in heaven. I've heard SCM 19 and 40 with their own pre power and integrated and it sounded very satisfying in many genres of music. The amp also had a very clean sound.

You should also look their integrated amp SIA2-150.

I spoke to ATC tech guy, he suggested pre+power combo over integrated. Though price difference is hardly 250 gbp more in combo. Combo cost 3069 GBP in UK.

My friend had a very bad experience pairing ATC with Musical Fidelity + Plinius. He also tried a pre tube with Plinius and in frustartion sold everything. He said everything was so revealing and in your face.

So my friend forum opinions can only act as pointers or reference posts. Do take your favourite CD for critical and extended listening.

I fully agree. I am not sure if MF is good pair for SCT40. I had auditioned them with Thiel 2.4 and did not like at all. Same experience as you mention, coming on face. and bright.

Hi Joshua,

I thought that at one point of time, but then I don't want to keep my options close for future upgrade on amp.

Which symphonic line would you suggest? RG1/RG2 combo or RG10 reference?

Thanks

Re: Amplifier for ATC SCM 40

Goldmunds are an excellent match for the ATCs. I have listened to this combo (Goldmund CDP, Goldmund Preamplifier with ATC SCM50 active speakers) for many hours at a friend's place and I found it to be a made for each other gears. Cinema Focus in Chennai are the national distributors. Get in touch with them and I am sure you will find the right product for your speakers. All the best

Re: Amplifier for ATC SCM 40

tubey mellow sound of the 460 accu?
hmm.... ive heard them with the Avalons, theils and watt puppies
didnt find anything tubey in that

i would say is more of a solid , authoritative, clean amp .
Doesnt roll off highs but doesnt sharpen them either

BTW the accu and the RG10 are both super amps
you wont need to look further
happy auditioning

The RG10 reference is probably the better deal.
