Proac Studio 140 mk2


Hi,

Looking for opinions, please. 

I’m aware of how the room, associated equipment, and other factors can alter a speaker’s sound. But how would you generally describe the sound of this model?

My current system is for the most part great, but I’m wondering if the Proac will be more lively on the top end than my Usher Cp6311? 

It appears the Proac is stronger in the bass regions, but if they are warm up top, that is a deal breaker. At 57, I crave a crisper sound, as I feel my hf hearing is suffering. 

I don’t want to trade sideways. If you feel the Usher and Proac are more alike than different, please say so, and I’ll likely stay put.

Unfortunately, I’m not able to demo the speakers without a road trip. I’m hoping to fill in some blanks before I commit.

Thanks in advance,

Gary

Hi Gary,

I owned the 140 MKII till I upgraded to the Proac Response D30RS six month ago .
What is the dimensions of your listening space ?
What is your system ?
What’s wrong with your Usher speakers ?
Hi,

The room is approx 15’ wife and 18’ long. Speakers are on the 15’ wall. The wall behind listening seating is partial- it is an arched wall that opens into a dining and foyer area. So actually the room could be considered 28’ long or so.

The system is an Anthem 225i Integrated, Musical Fidelity cd into a Schiit dac, and a Technics sl1200 mk2.

The only thing I would change is more pronounced top end- I think I’ve lost some high frequency hearing. Would love to hear more shimmer of cymbals, hihat, etc. 

Of course, not to the extent of being harsh-

Thanks,
gary
