I am replacing my very old Linn based separates with a Naim Uniti 2 and today I auditioned ProAc D18 and Monitor Audio GX300 speakers. I was really hopeful I would like them as they were recommended by several sources, lots of star ratings etc.
Sadly the ProAcs sounded flat unless volume was cranked up, even at high volume they didnt have much of a soundstage / spatial presence to the music. The Monitor Audios were slightly better but again not as involving my old Linn kit.
Thinking it may be the Uniti I auditioned Sonus Faber Elipsas and the difference was amazing - I wasn't listening to a performance I was there. Exactly what I am looking for. Sadly the Elipsas are way out of my price league.
So can anyone recommends other speakers to audition which will give me more soundstage and a more involving listen.
Thanks in advance.......
