Hi from Russia
I have problems driving my Proac Studio 110 with mid power amps. I tried Marantz 6003 and Rotel 972, both produce bass-less sound, that is they play around 25% of what should be played below 100 Hz. Phasing was correct, I also tried different cables, sources.
I realize the amps I have tried are not a good match for the Proacs but I assume they must play bass (of whatever quality, at the moment I don't care). Naim nait 5i is less powerful than the Rotel but it is said to be a good match for the Proacs. Arcam budget amps owners reported they were able to drive Proacs well.
Are my speakers misfunctioning? Is there something special about the two amps that they can't make Proacs play bass?
