PROAC D48R Bass Booming
That room is way too small for your speakers.  I have the D38's in a room 3 x your size. Perfect

I believe that the correctly adjusted vta has brought the depth into place. It isn't a rock concert by any means. But my system isn't set up  that way.More for my own intimate experience. I might eventually upgrade my Decware to a Manley chinook

Funny how some time with a piece will really change your mind.  I yanked that Loki out.It really does get in the way of the music. It was neat at first ramping up the bass. But it got old after about a week.  Thanks for the suggestions. Lowering t...

I have been listening with the Loki for 2 days and I am completely impressed with it. I can now listen at the 3 o'clock position and get full sound. So satisfied and thanks to those that suggested it.

Denon or Marantz? Home theater beginner.
I had Onkyo and HK AVR85 . I thought the HK was the bomb. I ended up buying a Hafler Dh200 to power the HK front channels. Everything was ok. Then to make matters worse I bought an old Lexicon CP3 just for kicks. OMG. The difference was staggering... 
Marantz DV9500 for stereo ?
Not sure about your unit. Try a blind test to see how it compares. I did. I had a friend do the switching while I evaluated. I replaced my Cal with my Sony DVP S3000 player. Much more dynamic and I have not looked back. Saved a ton of money to.
