What Hi-Fi? regularly publishes listicles that rank the best audio gear for certain uses or price points. Recently, the writers at What Hi-Fi? got together a list of the best bookshelf speakers from Budget to Premium. The Sound Organisation carries many bookshelf or smaller standmount speakers in its portfolio from great brands like Rega, and ProAc. What Hi-Fi? added a new set of speakers to their list: The ProAc Response D2R..
Landing in the middle of the list at number 5, the Response D2 loudspeaker from ProAc sits in the competitive middle ground between budget speakers and high end reference-level speakers. What Hi-Fi? has previously reviewed the ProAc Response D2R (the speaker variant featuring a ribbon tweeter), giving it 5 stars and awarding it the title of 2021's best standmount speaker over £1500. Standing just under 17" tall and 8" wide, the Response D2R will fit into most rooms, especially with some extra care devoted to placement. What Hi-Fi? notes (and we agree) that you need to run the speakers for two to three days to get the best sound quality. But that little extra time investment will reap you award-winning transparency and sound state depth, while remaining musical and entertaining for years to come.
