I still hate the term. You will never hear owners of speakers like Duntech Sovereigns, Martin Logan Monoliths, VAF i93, etc, talk about PRAT. You will only ever hear it from owners of equipment that possesses a restricted bass response.  

Isobariks . Keltiks , Komris , Klimax 350a have a restricted bass response then Trevor?

The only speakers I have heard that I could definitely say sound like they go lower than the Linn Majik Isobariks are the Aurum Titans, which is claimed to go down to 18Hz. Even the B&W 800D doesn't sound like it really reaches down further than the Majik Isobarik, but then again, maybe you just need the right amplifier.

Had a look on Google but couldn't find any response curves for the above mentioned speakers. All the mentioned speakers are however known for their deep and tuneful bass.

I used to have a B&W ASW650 sub woofer, and the Linn Majik Isobarik's depth was similar to that on my Naim Nait XS2.

I have never personally been a fan of the Isobariks, but one thing you could not say about them was that they had restricted bass. IME, the reverse is true.

The Linn Isobarik had a lean tonal balance, but in contrast the Linn Majik Isobarik has a bass heavy balance.

-3dB @ 45Hz and 21dB down at 20Hz is not what I would call a flat, extended bass response. 

 

The VAF i93 has what I would call a flat, extended bass response (21Hz ~ 19kHz +/- 1.2dB)

As far as I know the Majik Isobarik is -3 at 28Hz. What I meant by flat is that the bass doesn't have a bump anywhere, but sound even when the bass goes up and down through the frequencies.

Hello everyone!

      Item: Rega Elicit Amplifier
      Location: North Melbourne 3051
      Price: 1100
      Item Condition: good
      Payment Method: Pickup or shipping at your cost
      Extra Info:
      Here for sale is the Rega Elicit Amplifier. Rated at 82 watts per channel but it appears that it is more powerful than that, as it drives my Sonus Faber Electa Amator I easily. The sound is sweet and clear. I still remember the day when I bought the speakers last year. I brought this amplifier and the Rega cables to the previous owner of the speakers – we stayed until 12am enjoying music in the 30m2 room.
       
      Please note that Input 1 and the internal phono stage are not working, as was told by the previous owner. I only use it with DAC so it is not an issue for me. Anyway, price is lowered for this consideration. Item comes with a remote control. Asking $1100 for a quick sale. Pickup at North Melbourne or shipping at your cost. Txt me after business hours 0430 420 719
