"I audition ProAc D18 , D28. Focal chorus 826W and Vienna acoustic Beethoven baby grand. Any suggestion which one is more accurate, neutral and with good bass and room friendly , my listening room is about 10 ft x 12ft. My budget is around $4000."
Since you had the opportunity to listen to all 4 pairs, what do you think?
Considering you taste in music I would think the Viennas for sure. Great bass and very smooth upper end. Have not heard the ProAc's so cannot comment. Finally I would rule out the Focals. I have heard the Focals, and while a very good speaker for rock and pop, a little too lively and forward to classical and jazz.
As someone else pointed out, you had the chance to actually listen to all three. What did you think?
Paraneer, you are right ,Focal is a bit too sharp and forward on jazz and classical. Viennas and ProAcs both is very smooth , good bass , less coloration . As I auditioning them in different room with different equipments, cannot do AB comparison and no final decision yet. as for re-sale value concern, looks like ProAc is better. Any suggestion. Thanks
