Some more impressive sounds from ATC and McIntosh at the Tokyo International Audio Show, where the ATC SCM100 towers were driven by the enormous McIntosh MC1.25kW amps from McIntosh source equipment.
Across a wide range of tracks, the sound was stunning with the end-to-end balance and realism that ATC is famous for. The McIntosh power amps are impressive pieces of engineering, complete with perhaps the biggest power output displays we have ever seen, running up to a scary 4.8kW.
We came back later to hear Magico’s new M6 speakers running from McIntosh and Hegel electronics. The M6 speakers have imposing, curved carbon fibre and aluminium cabinets and deliver highly detailed treble and generous bass.
