  1. I thought I would share some of my extremely amateur pictures and videos from the recent Bangkok Audio Video show. Apologies for the quality but it is all just recorded poorly on my phone but something is better than nothing right? There is a really good scene here in Thailand for high end gear and some really good retailers. It has exceeded my expectations of what is here and surpases Aus in some respects. Anyways here is a few pics and vids and I will try to talk about each a little. The rooms at the show were really well sized and a lot better than in videos we see from the states etc (not just hotel bedrooms). The rooms where all conference rooms and decently sized for the majority. My favourite room roughly 8x14x3.5m Equipment is Proac Response K8, Rel No.25 array @Sime, Acoustic Arts Mono 3 Amps, The Beast server and an Audioquest Niagara. TT was unfortunately not used. (The speakers were meant to be the new top Elac Concentro but they unfortunately weren't there. The Proacs were very impressive regardless) This system was incredible and was demo'd by a Rel representative who did comparisons of sub vs no sub, 2 sub vs 6 sub array. The sound with no subs was seriously good but with the array was something else. It gave the feel of a live concert with the benefits of a HIFI system. It was never over powering at low volumes 60dB or at over 100dB and made it so much better at either volume level too. The subs filled in effect and made it so much more appealing, natural with a soundstage that was just amazing. They really transformed it into something other-worldly. My next project at home is to integrate my SVS into my system and after this it is a must. I will be buying a second if anyone is considering selling theirs though I wish I could afford the Rel array........ It was great speaking with the Rel guy alone and picking his brain. I have videos I will attach at the end of this post. Next is a room roughly the same as above though with no room treatment whatsoever. Equipment is Focal Grand Utopia 3 (roughly $260k AUD), Esoteric Grandioso stack with Fidelizer server, VTL Siegfried Series 2 monos and TL7.5 pre, Entreq Tellus 2 and more, In the pic is Stirling Trayle who did a talk on system optimisation and another on speaker positioning. The speaker positioning was really good and gave a scientific method rather than just constantly shuffling in semi bling hope. The optimization was good too. The sound of this system was of course amazing especially at higher volumes. At lower it was just so different to the Proac Rel room. It was what you would expect from a >500k system though and was something very special. Stirling travels the world setting up peoples speakers and believes in minimal room treatment after the speakers have been positioned. Got to speak with Stirling for quite a while and learnt quite a bit. The loom with more Entreq This room was about 6x5 with a lot of room treatment including little timber dots everywhere EDIT...Wilson Alexia with some Serbian Nat amps with valves as big as a football, Bergmann Galder TT This was a really nice room but didn't grab me. This next room was roughly 7x9 and had both a Wilson and Avantgarde setup EDIT...Wilson Alexia, D'Agostino Progression, dCS Rossini and Fidelizer server. This was incredible and from memory the monoblocks are a decent step up from the system presented at Audio Connection for their dCS launch which had the same DAC/clock, speakers were Sasha and used the Momentum integrated. I just wish this had it's own room because it was amazing. The other in this room was Avantgarde Duo Mezzo XD and Cary CAD 805AE it was beautiful though played a lot of music that wasn't really my taste and I don't think it was the best recordings. Classical on the Focal Grand Utopias gave me goosebumps but this didn't. Another good room Cessaro Alpha 2, Ayon S10 and Vulcan Evo amps. This was really lovely and the Cessaro rep enjoyed having someone to speak English with. The speakers use TAD drivers and were really special to listen to. He said there is a pair in Sydney and he travels to every customers house to set them up. Bad pic sorry Tannoy Westminster Royal SE and Kengsington GR, Sun Audio and Esoteric Sounded good but didn't grab me. ML ESL 15A and Burmester 911 MK3 This was really really nice and I think the ARC did really well. Burmester amps have always sounded really good everytime I hear them This room had black Focal Sopra 2s. Red Sopra 3s and Orange Sopra 1s (not shown) I was amazed at how the little naim all in one sounded on the Sopra 2s and would happily live with this system. The Micromega all in one amps were pretty crappy on all 3 sets of speakers. The Naim stack with Sopra 3 was beautiful and the best attainable system (for most) that I heard there. Naim really is incredible. 7.3 Elac Unifi, 3x Rel 2 12/SE Rotel RA1580 and 2x RMB-1585 This was pretty cool and I think the Rotel processor is brilliant. A few other systems Stealth 25th Anniversary Karp Horns. Claiming to be the best home theatre speakers in the world. These Daniel Hertz M7 were pretty good. Unsure... There were some other really good systems especially a Stenheim and Vitus room though I don't have pics. A locally made 300b amp for $800 AUD was absolutely beautiful with his own homemade speakers for roughly $3000 AUD One room had Magico bookshelves but he didn't want to set them up same goes with Avantgarde Zero1s The new Paradigm Persona Bookshelves sounded pretty average but had a little amp and not a good space It was a good show with a decent turn out and I was very impressed with the room sizes. I think all shows should try to use conference rooms and not tiny little hotel bedrooms. I'll try to add some videos soon EDITED.. Wilson speakers are Alexia not Sasha S2
  2. Item: Proac Response Tri Power Speakers 150w Location:Kelmscott WA Price: 1150 Item Condition:Excellent Reason for selling:Upgrading to KEF wireless speakers Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info:From an Immaculate house in excellent order Pictures:
  3. Item: Proac Future One Floor-standing speakers Location: Bendigo, Victoria Price: $2900 Item Condition: Good condition. These have been well cared for. LHS speaker does have small damage to veneer only at the very bottom of the rear corners (see photos, not noticeable unless up close). Comes from non-smoking, no pets environment. All drivers are in mint/as new condition. Reason for selling: Part of a second system that I don't have the time to use Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal. Extra Info: A rare find, as these remarkable speakers don’t often come up for sale. They were a departure from the usual Proac design, with open baffle and ribbon tweeter. When new, their RRP here in Australia was $18,999 and $10K USD overseas. After owning many speakers over the years, I have a distinct preference for the high end Proac sound. These speakers have been part of a second system, however I rarely get to use even my primary system. Primary system includes Proac D80’s, which are amazing. These speakers are the next closest I have heard to them, but it’s time for them to go. After years of trying out many speakers across brands, I have not come across anything better than these used for even twice the amount of my asking price. The birdseye maple finish is stunning, and is by far the best finish on any speakers I have seen or owned. The birdseye looks almost multi dimensional from different angles and in different light. As with all Proac's, these speakers are built to a very high standard and the sound is exceptional. Stereophile review here - https://www.stereophile.com/floorloudspeakers/1000proac/index.html It is rare to find these in Australia for sale. For reference, overseas sales are typically in the $5-$6K AUD range I would encourage local pickup, with a chance to audition, and with payment of your choice. Bendigo is only 1.5 hours drive from Melbourne. I currently have them setup with a pair of Red Wine Audio Signature 70 mono-blocks, and they can be auditioned for as long as you wish (in a separate room from rest of the house). Note that I’m prepared to sell the mono-blocks to the buyer at a very reasonable price if interested. If not, after the sale I will be looking to sell the mono-blocks for anyone interested. If local pickup isn’t practical then I’m happy to look at delivery options. Questions welcomed. Thanks for looking. Pictures:
  4. Item: ProAc Tablette Reference 8 bookshelf speakers in cherry finish Condition: Very good overall, slight compression of cabinet corners on the bottom rear of one speaker (see last pic) Price: $750 pickup or buyer pays postage ($50 within Australia) Details: Purchased recently to try out in my system, selling to free up some funds. I don't have the original packaging (wasn't provided by previous owner), so pickup is preferred. I will pack and ship interstate however if requested. Auditions welcome, PM me with any questions. Pics:
  5. Item: ProAc Response 1SC in cherry Location: Clayton, Melbourne Price: $1250 including postage to Australia Item Condition: 7/10 - see below for details. Reason for selling: Making space Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Direct Deposit Extra Info: The venerable ProAc 1SC. I purchased these last year from a forum member on SNA. They are in reasonably good condition, but do have some minor marks scratches on sides and top of both speakers (only visible up close). These are a very capable standmount speaker with a sound that is enticing. The speakers do not have their original box, but will come safely packed. Shipping within Australia is included in the asking price. Review: http://www.stereophi...oudspeakers/386 Pics:
  6. Item: Proac Studio 140 cherry finish Location: Melbourne Price: $1250 Item Condition: very good Reason for selling: moving Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Fantastic floor standers with an excellent reputation. Quick google search for more info, plenty of glowing reviews. Owned for a few years, purchased from a fellow member on here. Minor imperfections as pictured. Pictures:
  7. Item: ProAc Tablette 2000 Location: Perth Price: $800 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Surplus Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, COD Only Extra Info: Speakers come with upgraded external crossovers with expensive premium components and wires. Original crossovers also included. They are in immaculate condition and not used often. One of the woofers has slight indentations on its dust cap which obviously has no adverse effect whatsoever on the audio quality. Comes with mint conditioned grills as I never used them. They are set up for audition. Pictures:
  8. Item: ProAc Response2 Loudspeaker pair Location: Adelaide, 5038 Price: $1075 ono Item Condition: Very good Reason for selling: Moved to 3way floorstander Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: My apologies but the following is an excerpt from when I bought on here a year or so ago, hopefully OK [mention=222328]maxheadroom[/mention] Quote: "If you've heard ProAc speakers you'll know why they are legendary. They posses the most tactile and present midrange, and image like there's no tomorrow. Voices and instruments present as if they are in the room with you, and thats no mean feat considering what speakers I have on my main system. I actually compared to them to my SPendor A9 speakers and they are faster, and image as well, perhaps slightly better. But unfortunately, I've got too much gear and something has to go! These speakers deserve really good partnering equipment, the better the source, amplification and cables you attach to these babies, the better they sound. Previously I've had these speakers for a couple of years but hardly played them due to moving house and changing circumstances. I purchased these speakers of another Stereonet member - he builds his own speakers and refurbishes speakers like these ProAc's. The drivers look new! I'd be surprised if they've even been burned in so could be perfect for someone who wants new speakers of this calibre without paying new price. The cabinets have been repainted in a semi gloss black, they look classy and present as new, except for some marks on the bottom of the speakers from placing on speaker stands. He's done such a good job that the original stickers and badges are attached to the back of the speakers but he didnt paint over them at all. I don't know how he did it! The grills have new grill cloth on them and he sourced new badges." As mentioned I purchased these speakers of another Stereonet member in December 2016 who himself had also purchased from another member who builds his own speakers and refurbishes speakers like these ProAc's. The drivers look new! The cabinets have been repainted in a semi gloss black, they look classy and present as new, except for some marks on the bottom of the speakers from placing on speaker stands and a couple of "white flecks" one side of each cabinet. He's done such a good job that the original stickers and badges are attached to the back of the speakers but he didnt paint over them at all. The grills have new grill cloth on them and he sourced new badges. I am able to assist with interstate shipping at buyers expense and organisation. I have suitable cartons and packaging to facilitate the journey. I will post some photos once I am able to do so this afternoon. Photos promised although I am a terrible photographer Pictures:
  9. Item: ProAc Studio 250 Location: Central Cost 2257, or Sydney North Shore Price: $800 Item Condition: Good - see more info below. Reason for selling: No longer Using Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: It's not often you see a big set of ProAc's going for this sort of money. I have used them in a 2nd system, and these 250s are really good speakers. I purchased then for $1,800 about 6 years back. To be honest there seems to be very little on the Net about these - maybe as I believe they date from the late 90's?? I have one detailed review attached - if you speak Italian! I have priced them to reflect that they are not "100% ProAc". About 3 years ago I needed to replace the foam surrounds for the 4 lower bass units - which I did myself. 2 passed with flying colors and are now good for many years to come. However, 2 did NOT come through, and I could not locate original replacements. So.....after some exhaustive research and assessment I ended up importing two Aurum Cantus drivers that were an excellent match - I recall they were about $200 each. Fitted I could not tell the difference in sound compared to the originals. With the cloth grills on you'd never even notice! (FYI - I replaced these 250s with a set of 2nd hand Wilson Benesh Trinity's - RRP over $10K.... and the ProAcs weren't that far off the mark - and had more extended bass!) Oh....and a set of totally disassembled "for parts" 200's sold here recently for $300. And they may not even have been ProAc's. Makes these look like a bargain!! Search "stereonet SOLD Proac floorstanding speakers" in Google I am very happy to demo them for you @ my place if you are interested. Pickup only as they are very heavy, and I no longer have boxes for them. They will come with metal spikes (not pictured). I can deliver them for pickup to Killara (2071) if that helps, but can't really demo them there. Info: http://www.mangiasano.eu/iweb/hiend/ProAc_Studio_250.html Pictures:

  11. Item: Proac Super Tablettes Location: Horsham, Vic Price:Were $600 now $500 Sold pending payment. Item Condition: 8/10 Reason for selling: Too many speakers, not enough amps Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I've had these speakers now for about 12 months. I was planning on pairing them with a nice tube amp however those plans have now been scrapped. Lovely sounding speakers, amazing midrange and top end. Great condition for age. One or two scratches as shown on pics but not major. Will package securely and post at buyers expense. Pictures:
  12. Item: ProAc D15 Speakers (Cherry) Location: Melbourne, Chadstone Price: $1,500 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Downsizing to bookshelf speakers Payment Method: Pickup - Cash Extra Info: Original owner, bought new from Audiophile (East Brunswick). Features ProAc's stunning midrange and imaging. Down-firing bass port makes them very easy to position. Easy to drive with most Tube or Solid-State amplification (88dB Sensitivity). Beautiful cherry veneer with only two minor blemishes - a small scratch and tiny ding on the left-hand speaker - neither visible from listening position (see photos). Cared for in a smoke-free, pet-free environment. Comes with original grills, packaging, spikes and manual. Pick-up preferred. Pictures:
  13. Item: ProAc Response 1SC in cherry Location: Clayton, Melbourne Price: $1350 $1250 $1200 plus postage Item Condition: 7/10 - see below for details. Reason for selling: Making space Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Direct Deposit Extra Info: The venerable ProAc 1SC. I purchased these last year from another forum member. They are in reasonably good condition, but do have some minor marks scratches on sides and top of both speakers (only visible up close). There is no damage to any of the drivers or rubber surrounds. I'll post my detailed review soon, but in the meantime I'll say that these are a very capable standmount speaker with a sound that is enticing. The speakers do not have their original box, but will come safely packed. Auditions and pickup welcome, shipping within Australia should be $40-50.

  14. Item: ProAc Response Two Speakers Location: Williamstown, Victoria 3016 Price: $1500 OBO Item Condition: Very Good Reason for selling: Too many speakers Payment Method: Pickup - Cash Extra Info: I love these speakers. Infact I love them so much that I sold them, had sellers remorse and bought them back again. I've come to the point where I have too much gear and I need to move some of it on... besides I have 3 pairs of speakers. If you've heard ProAc speakers you'll know why they are legendary. They posses the most tactile and present midrange, and image like there's no tomorrow. Voices and instruments present as if they are in the room with you, and thats no mean feat considering what speakers I have on my main system. I actually compared to them to my SPendor A9 speakers and they are faster, and image as well, perhaps slightly better. But unfortunately, I've got too much gear and something has to go!

He's done such a good job that the original stickers and badges are attached to the back of the speakers but he didnt paint over them at all. I don't know how he did it! The grills have new grill cloth on them and he sourced new badges. There has been ProAc Response Two speakers on ebay ranging from approx $1300 AU to $2700 AU. Mine are definitely in much much better condition than the cheaper pair on ebay, and be close to the more expensive pairs, but my speakers have new drivers, and yes they are the original drivers with the ProAc logo on them! SO these are great buying. These speakers are heavy, and I don't have boxes for them, so prefer pickup. But if you're really keen and I can drop them off at to pack and send, so I'd consider sending interstate. All serious offers considered. Pictures:
  15. Item: Pair Proac Studio 125 Floor-Standing speakers Location: Hobart Price: $1200 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Free up funds Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: These were bought from a fellow SNAer (2nd pair I've purchased from him!) for the same price and IMO they are worth every penny. Highly-regarded and sought-after, Studio125s are exceedingly rare in the second-hand market - these may well be the only pair in Tassie.Both carry Serial Number S125/002452.Excellent condition, with just a couple of minor blemishes on the top of one cabinet – see pics – barely noticeable in my domestic situation - but otherwise sharp and crisp in every respect. Perfect working condition. Very room-friendly, measuring 950H x 200W x 290D:- weight about 19kg each.There is something special about a well-designed 2-way speaker, and Proac have excelled, for many years, in their development of this basic but effective approach.The S125 have a typical, thoroughly enjoyable, first-rate Proac sound-balance:- excellent detail without harshness, lovely midrange (very natural vocals), and a surprisingly deep and capable bottom end. Lots of reviews available on-line.Over the past 10 years or thereabouts, I’ve auditioned over 80 pairs of speakers (some with values up to $7k) in my lounge – this has been a retirement hobby – and I place these S125s in the top half-dozen. I could easily live with them (herself particularly likes their modest size & footprint) but $$$$s are required. By the barest of slim margins & also for nostalgic reasons, I have elected to keep my old Spendors.The Proacs come with their original spikes, boxes and packaging. Each box measures 1040 x 320 x 420 and the packed weight will be approx. 22 kg each.Pickup preferred, but Interstate shipping no problem at buyers cost – email for an estimate.Inspection / demo by appointment.

  16. Hi Guys, Would like some inputs from people who have listened to Primare Gear especially the A32. I am currently looking to add a two channel Power. My gear currently is all ProAc's driven by an Arcam FMJ P7. Before going multichannel I had ProAc's Response D2's paired with Plinius Hautonga which was really nice and I liked the way it sounded, did not like the preamp part of it but the power amp stage was really good. Now having moved my D2's as rears and currently have D28's for the fronts with the arcam driving it. I feel something is missing. I will be connecting the power amp with Cary Cinema 12, My source is a Logitech Transporter two channel duties and I also have a HTPC. Price wise both Plinius P10 and the Primare are priced similar. But specs wise the A32 has a bit more power when compare to the Plinius. There are loads of reviews on the net which pairs ProAc's with both these companies. Cheers!!
  17. * Item Acurus DIA100 integrated amplifier * Location Sydney 2077 * Item condition description Very good condition with original manual * Price and price conditions $750 * Reason for selling Surplus * Payment Methods: Cash - Pickup, EFT * Extra Info: I have been advised if I sell ALL my "surplus" audio gear I am approved to purchase an Aurender streamer. So both my Acurus DIA100 and Marantz PM11S1 are for sale. I am happy to keep which ever amplifier does not sell. The Acurus DIA100 has been a perfect match for my ProAc speakers. It drives the ProAc Tablette Reference 8 and Response 3.5 with ease. The passive pre-amplifier stage definitely contributes to a beautifully smooth and clean sound. There is a surprising synergy between the Acurus and the ProAc speakers. I had never heard of the Acurus brand prior to a fellow SNAer referring them I will include an "audio bonus" for any local SNA buyer. HINT: It may have Marantz on it, and it may spin little discs...
  18. I recently acquired a Marantz PM11S1 integrated and have been running it with my ProAc Response 3.5 in the main system. I wanted to try a sleek integrated solution with high WAF. Evidently the silver Marantz has higher WAF than the black Acurus DIA100. First impression was of a sound reminiscent of the Primare i30. Clean and inoffensive but lacking the valve sound (colouration) of the Tempest. That is a statement of my personal preference - not a judgement! I decided to bi-wire using the amplifier's second pair of speaker posts. Simply select Speakers A + B and away you go. What A Difference! The mids and highs are indistinguishable from my Tablette Reference 8 (my personal benchmark) but bass is significantly tighter. Everything sounds more defined. This is at odds with my last attempt at bi-wiring which resulted in no discernible change in sound. I had given up on bi-wiring after that episode. The same speaker cables are being utilised as per the past experiment. http://www.stereo.net.au/forums/index.php?/topic/23237-biwiring-question/?hl=bi-wire Currently listening to Goldfrapp and it is just beautiful. I intend to work through a broad selection of my music library covering a wide spectrum of genres. I am really enjoying the PM11S1. Not much is going to get done today...
  19. * Item full name and model etc. ProAc Response 3.5 in black ash + Townshend Audio Super Tweeters * Location Sydney * Item condition description Very good * Price and price conditions $4000 FIRM * Reason for selling Speakers now offered with Super Tweeters! The package represents a considerable saving. * Payment Methods: EFT, CASH * Extra Info: Speakers come with the grilles. Not sure of the equivalent ProAc in the current line up. The R3.5 was replaced by the D38 which in turn has been replaced by the D40 - which retails at $10K... These are a great floorstander for those who enjoy the ProAc sound. Delivery around Sydney may be possible with prior arrangement. Freight at buyer's cost. No boxes. Measured Dimensions (including plinth) 350x370x1320 [mm] Official Dimensions 1270 [mm] high 292 [mm] wide 318 [mm] deep * Pictures Detailed photos available on request.
  20. Hello Everyone, I have an as new pair of Proac Response D40 speakers a little over a year and a half old. They have had little use and would suit a new buyer. I am selling them because I am going away for some time and renting my house out. New price from Clef Hi Fi (the resellers for these English speakers) is $10,500. They are for sale for $6800. I also have the original cartons they came in for transport. I live in Castlemaine, about and hour and twenty from Melbourne. If you like them, I am happy to deliver. See attached pic and you'll get a sense of the size of these outstanding speakers. You are welcome to contact me on 0437149961. Cheers, Nick
  21. Hello everyone and anyone. I have joined this community because I'm passionate about music being beautifully reproduced. Less than two years ago, I bought a pair of Proac D40 speakers and an Ecko valve amp, WV55SE but I've decided to go on a long trip and rent my house and so I'll sell my gear and cop the inevitable loss. I'll post an ad on the classifieds <snip> Cheers, Nick
  22. Item: ProAc Tablette Reference 8 Signature Location: Clayton, Melbourne Price: SOLD Item Condition: Great overall. One small dent on rear edge of one cabinet - see last pic below. Reason for selling: Making space Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, bank deposit Extra Info: These are the Signature version of the Tablette Reference 8; featuring upgraded drivers and crossover. The cabinets are personally signed by Stuart Tyler. These sound more transparent than the standard Tab Ref 8, and have better bass response. They will come in the original box. They did not come with the factory-supplied brass bi-wire jumpers so I will include a set of Anti-Cable jumpers. Pictures:
  23. Hi all You only turn 50 once (in August) and the wife has agreed to the purchase of a pair of ProAc Response D Two standmounts - especially with recent price reductions. I am in Hobart with no plans to fly to Melbourne so I can't audition. From what I have read, these appeal and I am sticking to standmounts for the near future. Some background: Kit: Bel Canto CD2, Lightspeed Attenuator (pre), Plinius 200W P8, Mark and Daniel Sapphires, 2 x REL T5 subs, anti-cable cables Room: 8m x 4.3m x 2.7m lounge kitchen dining combo. Homemade bass traps in front corners. Opportunity: the 50th is leverage for new speakers, and the opportunity is not likely to reappear for many years! Taste: all styles of music but favour good recordings in the house and move the harsher edgier stuff to the car. Pretty happy with the kit and sound but a forum thread comparing ProAc, M&D and Lenehan standmounts (albeit different models but arguably same sonic signatures) a couple of years back has gotten under my skin, esp: "The m&d hurt. The Lenehan ml1s impressed. The proacs gave me shivers." To my ears, the M&D Sapphires sound great and I love them - they don't hurt. I once heard some vocal harshness on a Jamiroquai track but nothing since in the year I have had them. They do amazing things for their size and I like their innovations around DREAMS tweeter, low crossover, long throw woofer and marble-like cabinets. Great bass. Also the 200W is a good match for these very inefficient speakers. But I am convinced that the 'ProAc magic' will be another step towards nirvanna even though with this more traditional choice it seems like a backward step with regards to design and style. All my 'high end' purchases have been 2nd hand opportunistic purchases so actually planning to buy new speakers is a real novelty. If the ProAcs disappoint I can sell them and keep the M&Ds. Incidentally, the sound I am getting now in my room is much better than the B&W N804 floorstanders that I had. So am I crazy buying the ProAcs without auditioning? Will they be softer in the bass (I love good bass) but I can use the subs to compensate? But most of all - will they give me shivers?? Thanks Crosscourt121
  24. I currently have a ProAc Response D centre connected to a Yamaha RXA1020 and Monitor Audio BRFx connected to a Perreaux Audiant 80i. Yes this is ridiculous. I am waiting on delivery of my ProAc D18's and let me tell you I am getting a little impatient! No pics, it is just too sad.
