I prefer the lower group delay, no port chuff and bass roll-off of a sealed box that suits most uk rooms better (once you add room boundary reinforcement and room pressurisation gain).

There's no need for limited extension If you choose the right bass driver.

Wonder if a NAIT 2 could drive them?

Don't see why not. Sure, little speakers are inefficient, but no one sane would want to play them loud so it is seldom an issue. These are speakers for late-night near-field listening IMO. I happily drive my JR149s with a 10 Watt Leak Stereo 20 and I'd have thought that was about the same power envelope as a Nait 2, but only for up close and personal listening (which is where the mini-monitor magic is). The Nait loses it in the top when it is not happy, not the bottom, it just starts to sound a bit flat and grainy. I used one with Harbeth Compact 7ES is a rather large room for a while and it did struggle a bit.

The ProAc 1sc I had were about the only ported speaker I liked and were an absolute dream with the Sugden A21a so can't see why valves would have any issues into their 10ohm load.

999 for a speaker of this pedigree is a very good price.

Yes, fan of the 1SC here too, a superb speaker. ProAc's high-water mark IMO, it will be interesting to see how these shape up. I guess being sealed they'll sacrifice a little scale for grip and tunefulness. I'd be happy with that trade. The 1SCs could sound massive and powerful on the end of a big amp (e.g. Krell) but they still had a few clues a port was involved.

Oooh they are tempting. Well, at least they would be if I had the cash! But they would suit my listening set-up very well and are much more reasonably priced than the Falcon LS3/5a, for example. I bet they would sound good at the end of my JVC 1010 amp.

I wonder how they would compare to the KEF LS50s?

Target R4s. Truly superb stands IMO, backbreakingly heavy and they make just about anything else look flimsy by comparison! I have a pair under my JR149s. Sadly no longer made, but they do crop up second hand now and again. The Target R series were IIRC designed for the ProAc Response range.

I am using Atacama R724 stands with LS3/5a and Response 1sc for the last 10 years. I do not know how the other stands sound. In Hong Kong Foundation stands are very popular with these speakers.
