Well the ProAc was the D18 and the UR Unico Secondo.
Thanks Guys for the advices.... Unfortunately in a REAL WORLD I could have done what you've have suggested and what actually is the correct and sensible way to go.
Apart from limited choices I have also limited chances to ask for a house test......
If I told you that I may need to buy staff from the internet (amps etc) because they are not available here and hope they will match you would KILL ME!
That is why I was more in the specs thing ((EISA/WHATHIFI etc prizes) rather than the 'feeling' as I was thinking .. 'you can't go that wrong'!!!'
But wise words here.. made me think again. So my options are to either BUY what is the 'best' I could find here (and not the best to my satisfaction') or wait for chances to audition the real thing...but again NO WAY in my natural environment.
Thanks..... Just one thing general question Creek 5350 or Audiolab 8200A...
and for Rock/modrn music valves/hybrid are NO GO?
NO it was me from HIGHWAY TO HELL... No you are not changing the subject here its ALL ABOUT MUSIC.. right
For me....Creek....but I like a more organic presentation.
Yes and no. They often give a darker presentation, with bass that's a touch softer (Valves)....but not always. A quick listen to the likes of VTL amps will confirm this.
Part of my trouble is that I would like the presentation of UR Secondo with the D18s..... It would be worth the effort to try and get a listen to the Studio 140s, as they are less refined and more forward than the D18s.

... combo ...
Oh how much I dislike that word in hifi ...
I totally agree, much better in a food context.
eg. A tuna, cheese and red jalapeno combo in a pita bread pocket.
Mac mini > AVI ADM9Ts
A black brushed aluminium amplifier with rosewood veneered speakers is the best.
Seriously though, my advice would be to have a listen to some active speakers from the likes of Dynaudio, AVI, Genelec or Adam Audio. One of several advantages that active speakers have is that the built in amplifiers they use have been specifically designed to perfectly complement the speakers that they're driving. This makes them a perfect amp/speaker combo (sorry DM )
PC > AVI Neutron Five 2.1
Sony NWZ-A847 64GB Walkman > Westone UM3x
