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.

Dunno. Show me the response curves.

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.

      Item: OPPO HA-2 portable headphone amplifier
      Location: Altona (VIC)
      Price: $300
      Item Condition: Used
      Reason for selling: not being used
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
      Extra Info:
      Excellent Oppo HA-2 portable headphone earphone amplifier is for sale.
      See 5-star review here - https://www.whathifi.com/oppo/ha-2/review
      Purchased locally in Melbourne and warranty unfortunately just run out at the end of January - never had a single issue and this unit is build like a tank.

      Condition is excellent, was cared for when using and storing. Unit have low/high gain switch and Extra Bass switch, which is probably best bass boost I ever heard as it keeps sound still in check without just bloating everything out of proportion. Comes with original box and all original accessories extra iPhone short lightning cable.

      It was actually in use for about 3 months all up, 2-3 times a week for 30mins whilst commuting to CBD. After changing work and driving everyday I didn't use them for over a year now and can't really see using them again anytime soon so I might as well sell it.
       
      Local pickup from Altona (VIC) or can post in Australia. Priced to sell quick and not negotiable and also no trade ins.
