  2. Off topic, Sorry, @Frolove those carbon touches especially the intakes.
  3. I've had the pleasure of listening to these speakers on many occasions, if you value top to bottom balance and the utmost in transparency and staging, look no further than the Avalon's, they are tremendous speakers. GLWTS Frank

  5. These are a must for me, and a second system soft spot for the Orangutangs ..

  10. Thanks all, appreciate the feedback, special thanks to Rod and Jane, a very pleasant afternoon was had and a lovely couple to boot. Oh ...did I mention the coffee, really, really good. cheers Frank.
  11. H Martylen, I have one of these and know others who have as well. I would have never bought any Pioneer equipment in a fit until I read Peter Famo's write up on Stereonet early last year. It's totaly neutral, has spot on timing, largish soundstage and great bass impact. I bought home a Marantz SA-10 for a comparison and couldn't justify the extra 7k, the Marantz possibly slightly more natural, articulate, but PRAT were same, bass to the Pioneer. I'm splitting hairs, it's not noticeable in a disparaging way. I heard the latest Esoteric-07xs at $7.5k which I though sounded better but once again marginal, it was only once I compared the Esoteric against a DCS "Puccinni" SACD player the game moved so far it wasn't funny. I'm not going to go into detail, but I've heard some exceptional vinyl setups but none of them could match the DCS SACD player for its charm, involvment and nuances. For this kind of money it's a no brainer, but always try before you buy.
  12. Congratulations NcA, they're an engaging listen which you're going to enjoy even more once run in.
  13. Yes, they still sound great needle runner, these are a friends, he bought them from Audiophile in the late 90's. Foam rubbers on bass drivers and around tweeters have been replaced just recently, even though I'm not happy with the finish around tweeter. I'm thinking of replacing both tweeters with the original Proac ones for aesthetic purposes. I've also replaced rear screws and pins with brand new rhodium ones delivered from Proac UK. cheers Frank.
