Thank you for those. What they do is add to what I said. The first says “you get what you pay for,” which at $399 or $499 for a sub these days isn’t exactly the quality level I’m looking for (at a certain point price and sound quality don’t necessarily agree, but at $399 we’re far lower than that). If you look further, note the link to the review of best studio subs at the bottom, where we find Polk, JBL, Cerwin Vega, Mackie, etc. First off, my living room isn’t like a studio booth and, unless something has happened, those brands and probably models are very decent but not at the SQ level I’m looking for with SCM19A’s, a DirectStream dac and a moded Oppo 203, cables and power regenerator aside. The second and third links again appear to be smaller enclosed pro studios. Sound pros are generally looking for something very different than the rest of us home bodies. If the PreSonus T10’s work for your needs, great. If they turn out to be something that could work for mine, hopefully I’ll catch up with them sooner than later. I’d just like to see something from those who have a similar kind of system as mine.
I don’t want to be misunderstood about pro audio. ATC is primarily a pro brand, although my model is a home one by design, and I’ve had some very decent pro speakers on my desktop, such as Adam and Emotiva. However, they fell by the wayside as I constructed my computer audio system because they were not up to the sound quality I was looking for (I no longer focus on that system, feeling sufficiently satisfied with the Quad 12L’s I’ve had there for a few years).
