5 Stars out of 5
“The seamless integration between the trio of drive units means vocals are as articulate and naturally expressive as you like… the D40/Rs deliver a huge soundstage populated by beautifully focused images. We’re really taken with the Response D40/Rs.”

“The ProAc D38 sounds open and effortless, sweet in the treble, gutsy down low, and very involving with all types of music. To my ears, it retains Stewart Tyler’s sought-after emotion and mixes it with a lighter, more detailed and boxless presentation. The D38 is transparent than earlier Response-series speakers as well.

Stewart Tyler has succeeded in making a speaker that enhances the emotional connection with the music and has bettered his previous best, the $20,000-per-pair Response Four, in some meaningful ways. In fact, if the D38s had been available when I bought my Response Fours, I would have purchased them instead. Such improvement at a far lower price is something about which ProAc can be very proud.”

Overview

ProAc Response D20R Loudspeaker

In order to satisfy demand for a ribbon tweeter loaded version, ProAc is introducing the D20R. This exciting new model uses the same midrange/bass driver as the D18, mated via a high quality crossover network to their much loved ribbon tweeter. The bass loading from the D30R has also been utilised in this new addition to the range.

The Response D18 has proven to be one of ProAc’s most successful loudspeakers receiving critical worldwide acclaim. However, the D18 is only available with a dome tweeter, so to satisfy demand for people wanting a ribbon tweeter ProAc has redesigned the D18 using an upgraded cabinet with new bass loading, new crossover network and the ProAc ribbon tweeter used in other ProAc models.  This new exciting model is called the D20R and with the upgrades the sound quality has improved in all areas. Improvements comprise of a new cabinet with bass loading used in D30 and D40 models. A new crossover network and a ProAc ribbon tweeter as used in D30 D40 K6. The result is a wonderful open and expansive midrange with a substantial bass, ProAc ribbon tweeter giving sweet and detailed high frequencies, a large sound stage is also a bonus.
