It was not a love at first sight. First I heard the 140 MK2 it sound to me dull and dry, but after a long term listening I learnt to appreciate how great this speakers are :
fine tonal balance , ultra neutral sound with no artificial coloration, a deep bass and great resolution . This speakers simply lets the music flow naturaly so I can listen to them many hours without getting fatigueated . The music isn't just a background anymore but a truly involving experience .
The Proac140MK2 are suitable for all kind of music from jazz and classical to pop and punk. When the music becomes aggressive they are like massive machine-guns with muscular bass without loosing control .Soundstage is always balance and realistic .Solid looking and top class finish .A great value for money ; this speakers are much bigger than their price tag but do need good amplification, cables and a long term break-in (about 500-600 hours ! ) to really shine .
As follow up to last post I have now bi wired the speakers after several months operation. The result has clearly delivered a sharper, crisper all round performance. These speakers perform well in mid sized to large sized rooms and are well worth the money. Despite all the controversy about bi wiring these speakers do perform better.
On the basis of What HiFi tested these and other speakers in Moscow, Russia today. Speakers had to line up with new Cyrus 8XPD integrated amplifier and CDT player. Among others also tested Monitor Gold 300's. For balance and exceptional mid and treble range for excitement the Proac's tested well with Cyrus.

The gorgeous retro design is hard to resist, but the TEAC fails to deliver an engaging and musical performance at this price
The all-round ability of the Luna 7 means it should sit well with a very wide range of systems
A poor implementation of a neat concept, with poor sound to boot. Disappointing
