Interesting comparison of NS10, ATC SCM20A & ATC T16 Active

Postby Jprice » Mon Aug 12, 2019 7:27 pm

Greetings,

Just thought I would share this paper on the Yamaha NS10. It compares the NS10 to lots of other monitors including the ATC SCM20A & ATC T16 Active (Although it doesn't specifies which revision). The ATC seem to also show good decay on the waterfall plots similar to the NS10. Something that the paper seems to suggests gives the NS10 particular favour.

However I was surprised to see the distortion on average looked higher on the ATC that the NS10. 800 - 8000hz looks cleaner on the ATC.

Be interesting to get others opinion on the paper and comparison.

The 20A seems to be a good unit!

This is- dare I say it- ancient. Some of the speakers mentioned have been out of production for 15 years+.

Matching this with other known product on the list, this would be a 20 with a VIFA tweeter, three generations ago. You can still see the nice phase behavior and the SL woofer performance.
