Tekton room at the Los Angles Audio Show.
Went to the show on Saturday. I was interested in hearing them aswell but unfortunately they were demoing other speakers when I got there. Kind of frustrating as I was interested in knowing whatall the fuss was about.  
Proac Rake angle?
Agree with Jperry as well. I replaced the jumper bars on my D-30Rwith Clear Day Cables jumpers and the difference was noticeable. Probably didn't hurt that I'm using Clear Day cables too.  
After nearly 20 years, I left Magnepan and went ProAc
Congratulations on the Proac's. I got a chance to listen to the D-48R'sbriefly and was very impressed. If I had the room for them they would be on my list. I ended up with the D-30R's and have been extremely pleased with them. Like you, I wasn't t... 
B and W: CM10 S2 vs 805 D3 with a sub
I owned a pair of B&W Signature 805's which I then integrated with a Velodyne DD10. I did get it work but it never quite sounded  as coherent and seamless as a floor stander. I eventually sold the Velodyne and just let the 805's go solo. Those... 
Good Speakers with Pass XA30.5 Power Amp?
I have a Pass Labs XA30.8 and its currently powering my Proac D-30Rs. They are an easy load for that amp and match well together IMO. 
Proac Response D40R or D48R
Randyhat,If you have the room size for a D-48R I think its worth the extra $$. It takes all the strengths of the D-30R and expands on them. Better dynamics, more resolution and a completely  effortless sound. That being said, for my room the D-30R... 
Proac Response D40R or D48R
I own the Proac D-30R's and had a chance to briefly audition the D-48R.What impressed me most with the D-48R was its effortless sound. It justsounded so natural and musical that you sort forgot about everything else. The ribbon tweeter is wonderfu... 
Looking for advice on speaker cables for proac d38 and arc ref 150
I have Proac D-30R's and I'm using Clear Day Cables. I have usedthem with both tubes (Manley Snappers) and now SS (Pass X30.8).I would recommend you contact Paul at Clear Day cables and demohis cables. It will cost you next to nothing and you can ... 
What is the future for Proac Speakers ?
Dear Mr. Tyler,Welcome to Audiogon. I recently purchased a pair of D-30R's at Revelation Audio in Southern California. I've been extremely pleased with them and they continue to impress me with their musical capabilities. Keep up the great work an... 
Inexpensive speaker cables
At the price range I would also try Clear Day Cables. Paul is a greatguy to deal with and most likely let you demo his cables before you buy.His cable offers a lot of band for the buck. 
Esoteric X-01 vs K-05...
Jafant,The Modwright 999ES is a good player IMO,especially at the prices you can pick one up today. It more on the musical side of the spectrum but you can adjust the sound a bit by swapping out tubes and or power cords. Dan is still supporting th... 
Proac Studio 100 - will 35 wpc be enough?
Chris, I power my Proac D-30R's with a pair of Manley Snappers running in triode mode. They make about 30W or so. They easily power the D-30R without any struggle whatsoever. The Studio 100's have a similar impedance so I think you should be good ... 
Need feedback on loudspeakers
Milpai,Not sure where your located, but Audio Revelation is located in Carlsbad CA and they carry the Proac and Tannoy line. Jay is a good guy will give you his honest opinion on both lines. I purchased my D-30R's from him and have been very pleas... 
Speaker thoughts - ProAc D40R or Wilson Benesch
Garebear,The Sound Organization located in Dallas, Texas is now the distributor for Proac. When  I ordered my D-30R's they were shipped from there. I purchased mine from Jay at Audio Revelation(CA) and I can highly recommend him. By the way I did ... 
ProAc sound with SS vs tubes
Hi Badri,I auditioned the D-20R’s with my Manley Snappers. We ran themin Ultra Linear (100W) and Triode (~30W). I actually preferred them in Triode mode. The sound was more open and balanced in my opinion.I ultimately ended up with the D-30R becau...
