Hi,

Its not English ATC. They do use Danish AT (audio technology) units.

Poor price/performance ratio compared to the competition.

Yes, thats corretct.
I was also reading this thread, poor price/performance....
But I have read very good reviews about this AT..I am planning to use those also someday. Scanspeaks are also really natural. But unfortunately I really dont like how the look...thats my problem.

Is there any other excellent midrange , that looks good and nice?

Yes, i just read from AT webpage, that Sonus is using also theyr drivers.
I have done research about Eton and got some average responce. There is not many people are using it. Thats I do not like-does people then dont like them?!..is the question. Other side I got some really good responce for 7" Eton, which is very good for woofer.
But I am looking midrange...Eton visually looks perfect for that ( I am doing some nice design, thats why I put some effort also, how driver looks), but sound is so-so! Some are saying that SS is totally over it ( I agree, but take a look how 8545 looks - those lines!!!!
and other side is Eton not so detailed and a littlebit dry?!

You really shouldn't select the driver based on the looks.
I guess the next question would be, what tweeter and woofer are you going to use with what crossover?
I don't think Zaph liked Eton for a relativity high distortions and high price.

Yess, I know that-its not usual behavior to select drivers how they look. I am planning to use some SS series tweeters(there is many good ones, 6600, 7000,9000) or peerless HDS ( I own it, and just for ear it makes better and more natural voice than 27TFFC for excample.
Woofer, probably Eton or SS...I was consider also Seas Excle magnesium, but just read that SS is more natural, not so cold, and dry.

Its gonna be three different types of speakers, so I need at least 3 different choices for midrange-I can always find woofers and tweeters.
One thing I was also considering, is AT C-Quence fe., but its excpensive, I have never heard it, so I am worried, is ist really worth 300 bucks, compared 200 for SS 15 fe. or even Audax AM130 (own and sounds very good-brings singer closer to listener).

Nice weather here is Estonia

Hi,

I can highly recommend the Seas here
http://www.seas.no/index.php?option=...d=63&Itemid=87

Ive done a project with it, and it sounds great. I like it better then the AT, and in some cases the SS.

If the size is not important, try the SS 12M. Its VERY good.

Its really intresting to read, what AT guys are writing about their conematerial they are using. And they say that magnesium is the worst..but still I have heard something good about magnesium.
Well, personally, please describe me the differences between this Seas, AT and SS 12M.
What can you suggest for classical music, lots of vocals, pianos etc.
It means that its not gonna be trancemusic-speaker
