RE: Proac Response D1/D2 Demo

At the Bristol show in February, one of the 3 or 4 best systems I heard was a simple setup of Naim CD + amp with the Proac Response D2s. Could have listened to that for hours, so in your position I'd buy em.

Hi margetti

I would say that Focal JM Lab Aria 906 and ATC's curved SCM11 monitors are also worth an audition Smile

All the best

Unfortunately struggling to find any ATC dealers near me (Surrey/SW London) - being without a car doesn't help.

 

ATC are excellent speaker but do need a powerful amplifictaion to really shine . Check them carefully because of it  I think the Proac is  a better option than the ATC .
