Gear Nut


I'm setting up a very-nearfield setup. 3 feet listening distance. Gonna mix sub on cans.

I like the smallness of the SCM7 v3. But I'm worried it's less flat, looking at the measurements from stereophile vs the SOS measurements of the SCM12.

I have heard that the SCM7 sounds like the SCM20. Which I like.

I'd use the P1 Pro amp for either, I think.

Can anyone with experience weigh in? If I don't need too much volume, is there any downside to the SCM7 v3 over the SCM12?

Here's the link to measurements if you wanna check em out.

Lives for gear

Pay attention to the scale (y axis) used. The variation from "linearity" is almost exactly the same (-5dB) between those speaker measurements. A dip looks "deeper" when the x-axis is compressed and the y-axis is zoomed in.

Outside of that, I'd like to point out that both of those measurements are heavily smoothed. No such linearity in an unsmoothed plot would really exist. But it does give the general idea.
