Spendor D7
@mpomerantz,I have listened to the D7. They are absolutely not bright or forward sounding loudspeakers. I loved them when I went looking for speakers. Heard them with MBL electronics. Also auditioned the ProAc D30RS. These are musical loudspeakers... 
does anyone own ProAc D30 or D48 WITHOUT the ribbon tweeter?
OP,In the past 4-5 years, I have come across only 1 European forum where 1 guy mentioned that he preferred the ProAc dome to ribbon. I have never got a chance to compare the ribbons to the domes. But I love the highs and mids of my ProAcs. 
I went from Class D to Luxman A/AB - And most of what you think is wrong
Interesting thread. Been reading about Class D and GaN amps for a bit now.Problem with posters here is you "feed" George and then blame him. Why do you care what he feels? Is he paying for what you are buying? He has the same issues with "active V... 
Proac D30R vs Devore O93
OP,I have heard both the speakers you mention.I heard a Devore O/9? in February 2014 at Audio Concepts, Dallas. They sounded good. Not sure if it was 93 or 96.But it was the ProAc D30RS that ticked all the boxes I was looking for. They went deep a... 
Looking for a good full range floor stander
@audiotroy ,Proac is not known howerver, for their ability to play loud and fill up giant roomsDo you know it or have you actually heard?It is totally possible that the Proac D48 might sound as good or even better than the Leagacy Focus we were re... 
Looking for a good full range floor stander
@audiotroy ,Just curious - have you heard the ProAc D48 in a setting similar to OP's room? @paliden,I had sent you a PM about my dealer for ProAc. Talk to him about the ProAc D48R, K3 and K6.

@rja It’s not what you say, it’s how you say it. You nailed it. 
Preamp Upgrade
@sidvee+1 on the Rhumba 1.3 preamp. Good to know that you were able to compare it to much more expensive preamp and it can compete. I changed the tubes to Gold Lions and the sound is even more natural. The bass became even more thunderous. And yes...

I use a ProAc D48 and love it. The K6 are supposed to be better. 
Light weight speaker cables
You might not find Clear Day easily as the owner Paul has passed away. I recently was contacted by a Verastarr cable ($$$$) owner that he replaced his cables with Audio Envy loudspeaker cables. He went on to chime that he replaced his entire mega ... 
What was your first big eye opener with regard to audio?
@jszei +1.While I was aware that speakers make the most difference and components and cabling also made difference, it is the affect of power conditioning that made the most impact in my mind. I always thought that power through dedicated line is ... 
ProAc Response D48R......
User @jperry has a room similar to yours and uses the D40R which is similar to the D48R. I suggest that you PM him and get his opinion, if you are in a hurry. 
Help selecting a new preamp
I highly recommend the Backert Labs Rhumba 1.3. You might also want to check out the Extreme version of this tube preamp. This does not come with a phono input though. 
Reasonable high end interconnects: without breaking the bank
In a private discussion, one of the members told me that he replaced some $$$$ Verastarr foils with Audio Envy cables. I am trying to find more information on these cables. 
Who makes budget speaker cables which are truly “good” or “exceptional” in quality?
Audio Envy has been brought to my attention. Looks like some folks replaced their $$$$ cables with these.
