Thanks for the welcome Prog Rock Man. I’ll keep the posts short in future as this is one of the longest most controversial hi-fi threads ive ever seen, its fantastic : )
And there’s me in my last post saying I was a ProAc convert :-/ well Ive just tried a another set of speakers a third of the price and guest what ! they actually sound better, more ‘detailed/natural/real’ at least in my current system anyway. They are still from a highly profile speaker maker but it just shows that the components matching along with room acoustic can also have a massive influence on what sounds better (to my ears anyway). That’s the problem here too many variables.
Still think ProAc sound and look good though.
