Proac Response DT8
It doesn't take up much space. Its design is such that it can be positioned easily in any room. It looks lovely and it sounds oh so good. How do they do it? Read on.
In the first position of importance, the cones, domes, and magnets of a speaker's drive units are where the "rubber meets the road". ProAc has decades of experience working with some of the world's finest driver manufacturers to create drive units that are unique to ProAc and designed for their specific application. This knowledge comes to fruition in the DT8 through its clever three driver two-way array.
Two mid-bass woofers are made from different cone materials, each optimized for a specific range of frequencies. The lower woofer cone uses mica, a crystalline silicate, and paper pulp, with a purpose designed fiber-weave dustcap, and is tuned for excellent mid and low bass response.
The upper woofer cone is made from hard polypropylene with a soft polypropylene dustcap, a material well known for its remarkable midrange characteristics. The tweeter is ProAc's 1" soft dome tweeter, well known for its dynamics, insightful yet remarkably smooth presentation.
The two woofer operate in tandem to reproduce the entire mid-band and low frequencies, before gracefully transitioning to the tweeters, with the three drivers working together for an even, natural full-band response.
The benefit of such a clever driver setup is a simpler crossover. Only needed a two-way system, Stewart Tyler has nonetheless worked his magic to ensure that the three drivers are mated together with a minimum of phase and timing distortion. His hard work is obvious as the speaker sounds 'cut from the same cloth' with no gaps or anomalies in response, making your music sound natural and enjoyable. Of course, only the very best crossover components and materials are used, ensuring decades of reliable operation and the very best sound.
The rear plates are fitted with gold plated multi-way binding posts that allow for single- and bi-wiring. Handsome on the outside and clever on the inside, the Response DT8 is the quintessential British speaker. Made from varying thicknesses of MDF, extensively braced, and then dampened with bitumen an asphalt-like materialDT8s cabinets are heavy and totally inert. The tuned bass reflex port is fired downwards into the base plinth, managing the acoustic port function handily. Each cabinet is covered with hand-selected sustainably harvested real wood veneer and handmade in the UK.
They are then meticulously inspected at ProAc for any flaws before being hand assembled by ProAc's skilled technicians. The entire process is overseen by Stewart Tyler and his daughter, Zoe, making this truly a family affair!

The new Response DT8 now takes its place in the ProAc range as our entry level floor standing design. This innovative new loudspeaker will create new interest in the mixing and matching of drive unit cone materials to effectively cover all types of music enclosure.

Lots of attack without being bass heavy. Also the speakers are very detailed and crisp and you can really hear a lot in the recordings. They are very revealing though and not all songs sound good, especially older recordings. I found them to sound very life like, you can separate instruments well and feel like you are in the room with the artist. Especially with better recordings their realism stunned me. However, I did find them a tad bright which worries me a bit.Response DT8 is sure to please.

Find a ProAc retailer near you. Even in the short history of high-end high fidelity, few companies have lasted the course. Even fewer have consistently developed and produced high quality products which have earned international acclaim.
ProAc is one such company. The ProAc range is, as they say, reassuringly expensive. We do not make cheap loudspeakers and certainly do not produce cheap sounds. Happily, many thousands of audiophiles worldwide agree with our philosophy. Every ProAc loudspeaker is hand-crafted, with our technicians individually responsible for the building and testing of each unit, from the flagship Response models to the diminutive Tablette.
Build quality alone is unsurpassed, each cabinet being meticulously constructed, damped and finished in real wood veneer. Only the very finest components are used in ProAc loudspeakers, with each new model reflecting the very leading edge of audio technology. Indeed many models now incorporate dedicated drive units using our own basket, cone and magnet assemblies.
Drive unit performance is fine-tuned through expensive and sophisticated crossover networks. But all the finest cabinets and components in the world are redundant without inspired design. And for a quarter of a century Stewart Tyler, Chairman and Chief Designer has been responsible for putting it all together and producing the performance.
He alone decides the cabinet size and configuration, drive unit layout and crossover design and all the other factors which combine to produce some of the most cultured sounds available in modern audio. ProAc loudspeakers are available through a network of enlightened dealers who will be pleased not only to put our models through their paces, but to give informed advice on partnering equipment.

Marty I like these predictions but I think you're being a little too optimistic for the NEAR future. There will be civil unrest and things will get worse before they get better, especially with both the right and left wing being unable to get their heads out of their own asses.
Thank you for drawing attention to the fact that "women's empowerment efforts are often creating antipathy toward men". It is an important factor in society and personal relationships of which most people seem to be unaware, in particular, those who stand to be most adversely affected - men.
