Default Wilmslow Audio K50 and K100.....

Hi there, I am very interested in the WA K50 and K100 kits.

Seems to be a lot of high end speaker for the money.

I would love any users to report their experiences on either model
they seem to be similar to ATC SCM50 and 100 (though passive).

Many thanks for your time.

Hi

I have been using the presrige kit for same time now, This uses the atc mid but with volt rv3143 and scanspeak d2905/990000.

This has a open and smooth sound is the one of best speaker that I have heard.

The speaker that this replaced was atc's smc 20.

The peaple at wilmslow are very helpfull.

Thank you for your reply.

I am interested in the Prestige as well, it seems like a very high end
system for a decent price (still not cheap but reasonable considering the high end drivers implemented)

It would be great if you could comment on some of these aspects maybe giving a rating from (terrible)1-10(exceptional).

Overall driver integration (crossover point choice)
Stereo imaging / depth and positioning of instruments
Smoothness of high frequency response
Detail of the midrange
Depth and accuracy of bass response
Low frequency extension

Many thanks it is difficult to find reviews on their products depsite being
generally well regarded. It is still quite an investment in time and money.

Hi

To all the point you have noted this is very good Speaker.

The atc mid is the best mid driver I have heard, There may be a beater mid in the pro speaker market but this is not availble to the diy market.

Bass extension is from adout 25hz in room. I have built them in 110 litres cabnets.

The bass driver is not overly warm. This speaker is very open and shows any change's mayed to the equiment in front of it.

Without doubt I will listen to them. However it's nice to get a
view from an experienced user who has spent many hours with them.

And it also puts them up the priority list for a demo if a review is favourable.

Thanks for your time.

cheers

safe if you do go for a demo can you post a report on here. I have been meaning to go for a demo for years but never have as it is a 9 hour journey.
