I've has the opportunity to examine the Alchemy ALC600 and discuss the performance with the owner, but haven't actually used them myself.
I wasn't very impressed. The boot itself is fine but the liner rather thin and there's nothing in the way of footbed support other than a cardboard insole. The frame is adequate, but the bearings cheap and the wheels piss-poor; expect them to last no more than a few hours of skating.
At ┬ú100, they were overpriced, but at ┬ú55 you could do a lot worse. I wouldn't buy them though. And there's nothing wrong with Salomon FSKs: I have two pairs in regular use. Being old makes them chic! And buying the Alchemy skates would be a massive step down both in terms of quality and performance.
