I have had Vifa, Excel Millenium and now ATC’s own tweeter in various ATC over the years. The ATC tweeter is the best by far. It just integrates so well and doesn’t sound like a tweeter at all. In fact there is no sound to it at all - completely transparent. Every other three way speaker I have heard has audible driver integration issues where certain sounds or tracks, dynamics or loudness level make you aware you are listening to three drivers. ATC eliminated this for the bass and mid range integration but there was still a very small discernible tweeter sound with the older designs. This difference is completely gone now. You won’t want to go back even though the Excel Millenium is the best OEM tweeter on the market!!!
Thanks for your response. I have been using ATC since 1994! So that is 24 years. I have had their 20, 100A, C6, C6CA and recently the EL150A. I have always wanted to pair ATC with EMMLAB equipment. Ironic since Ed Meitner works ten minutes from my house! For some reason it just never happened, as I found Benchmark DACs to be such a pleasing match to my ears. As always, I am interested in others experiences and what you have tried and what you found to work best?
Welcome to Audiogon. I am sure I have seen your setup before somewhere. It is unbelievably awesome and to die for. Did Ben or Bob or both help set this up for you? And this may be a stretch but do you own a full size Predator (the alien in the movie) that helps ensure nobody would steel any of your fine gear? And have you pulled any teeth lately ;-)
