Atomic SixTen Studio Monitors - who is using them?

They make the power supply most SSL owners use and love.
But I found today they make a full range compact studio monitor
Called the SixTen
Would love feedback from any owners / users.
Thanks in advance.

I have heard them and they are stupid good and my pick at 5K over anything out there.....



They are only beaten by the Dutch and Dutch 8C at 12.5 K

I can't afford them, but I've known Norm for a long time and he is a good dude and great engineer. I would trust that these are about as well-designed and built as humanly possible.

Don’t know if ‘adorable’ is praise or insult...but they look like mini-604E studio monitor cabinets.

I own a pair and think they’re great.

High praise. Wonder what their 16K monitors sound like.

Norm is a genius designer and I may have to get a set because I am a slut....

I haven't heard these yet, but I have a few friends that I trust here in Nashville that say they are the best they've heard.

At least one guy in Nashville has the giant Atomics, and they sound OUTRAGEOUS. The low end goes to the center of the earth.

I’ve heard the smaller ones in other studios. They’re nice!
