Further to my earlier post about auditioning ProAc K6s, I have just been reading another thread “250DR V 300” and came across:-
“I can't comment on the 282, but auditioned both the 300DR and the 250DR with a 272 (+555). In my room (6m x 5m) with ProAc K6 speakers the 300 was a great disappointment, producing overblown, overpowering, muddy, booming bass. As soon as it was replaced by the 250 it was as if a curtain had lifted, and I heard music better than anything I had experienced before.”
I upgraded a non-DR 250.2 for the 300DR, maybe if I had changed the speakers first I would have stuck with the ProAcs.
