Yes, it is now driving J-low, pumping out Beethoven, Missa Solemnis,
Otto Lemperer, into the deep night. I mean this time I'm writing this . . .

About ten years ago, I listened to the SCM10. Still, I remember
the beutiful violin sound . . .

I had SCM20, and gave it Papa's Zen power. I still remember
Nirvana, Unplugged In New York, heard from the system . . .
Sure, it was "Zen" that empowered SCM20 to sing.

Hmm . . . immediately reminded me of SCM7 when I wanted to buy
one baby speakers this time. I gave the order and signed the bill.
I will receive the baby set mid next week.

OK, I will try Zen V5 (with jfet input) . . .
Then, will try X-Zen V2 . . .
Then, might try F4 . . .
Then, might try Aleph-J or Babelfish . . .
Also, I might try the bi-amping with flea watt amp and F4 . . .

Will inform you . . .

Good to know there's a member who tolerates my sense of twit.

Still do not fully understand why a Zenny would choose an LS3/5 relative

LS3/5A . . .

I remember. Once you asked me why I needed that big when I
posted my picture of J-Low. Remember . . . ?

Actually, I like low sound level when I listen to the music. I'd like
to confess that 95% of my music is at low level and 5% at loud
level. In this respect, J-Low is perfect for me. The Jordan's single
corns make me satisfied with the 95% of low sound music while
the big horns give me full satisfaction with the 5% of loud music.
So, J-Low makes me happy 100% with what I want.

In everyday life, I think too much this and that. All different types
of thinking occupy my poor brain. They are bad viruses . . . It's a
pain. But, often, the viruses step back . . . and small dolls come
in, holding old and new musical instruments. I open my eyes and
see them, playing small but sweet music . . . mmm . . .

I like LS3/5A relative speakers.
I like to get it back, Heifetz, Bruch Concerto No.1 in G Minor . . .
which I loved through Zen and SCM20 . . .

Who looks for only the large systems? Complain Papa . . .

Hi Babo

I think I understand what you are trying to describe..In the 1980s I discovered that all the class A amps that I listened to far better preserved the dynamics at lower levels. I concluded(rightly or wrongly) that all class A amps preserved the dynamics at low levels. As I lived in a large house with 18x20' rooms this really was not a consideration. Now I have a 12x12 listening room and I have an F2 and an F4 and EL34 SE and they play beautiful music through my fostex voigts......but they can't keep the low level dynamics like my electrostats with KT88 power...go figure


If you can afford to give up a little of your space for the speakers I recommend you try electrostats in a small room. At low listening levels I have never found anything that keeps the dynamics like them.

Regards

Ed

I tried a pair of SCM7's in my secondary system. The amp was high quality but not high current (50wpc, 10A). It was a bit of a mess, too bright for comfortable listening. I replaced them with a pair of FR125S full-rangers which I love. So I would agree with everyone else here, you need high power and good current delivery for the ATC's.
