Bottom Line:   

I Always loved the Proac Studio Sound for the really fantastic quality they offer. They may not be as fast in the low regions as other brands models like Totem speakers or Focal JM-Lab ,but they offer a totaly high-end sound, clean open midrange with fantastic detail and clarity, nice bass but not the fastest one for the money and exceptional good treble. To be honest, I will accept only one speaker as the next huge step into high-end audio: The Sonus Faber Cremona Floorstanding speaker I listened before some months, but It costs about 7000 Euro. The Proac will play simply well with the low-budget tube amps like Primalune Two (I owned one) but the bass lovers will be a bit sad. My last addiction is the combo of Blue Circle NSCS with the Studios. Both have the magic of tubes with the muscles of solid states plus the lovely high frequencies both are capable. Soundstage is very large, particually in the width and depth but not like Sonus Faber's height (you can feel a huge height listening organ music or choral, the Totem Mite excels in this area better than proac). Proacs offer top-class drum reproduction and voice plus a very-very good violin and stringed instr. reproduction with fantastic micro-dynamics and class A imaging. You cannot buy more for the price and remember, If you have to change a category you have to pay a lot more to jump to another realm (including new amps, cables, sources and the most importand : good AC). My combo is NSCS from Blue Circle ( I love this amp) , Musical Fidelity A5 CD, Proacs, Nordost Blue Heaven speaker cables, Cardas Golden Reference RCA. I also own a Pathos Classic One ( I will keep this amp , the most realistic timbres and reproduction of violins,viola etc. but with lesser soundstage). I tried many products before and those above are top of the tops. I also tried Neutral Reference Interconnect by Cardas but they sounded harder in upper freqs. and slightly blur compared with Golden Reference that are my gold choice.
