Even in the short history of high-end high fidelity, few companies have lasted the course. Even fewer have consistently developed and produced high quality products which have earned international acclaim. ProAc is one such company.

Every ProAc loudspeaker is hand-crafted, with technicians individually responsible for the building and testing of each unit, from the flagship Response models to the diminutive Tablette. Build quality alone is unsurpassed, each cabinet being meticulously constructed, damped and finished in real wood veneer. Only the very finest components are used in ProAc loudspeakers, with each new model reflecting the very leading edge of audio technology.

Tablette 10 Signature
Starting at $3,200

Following the successful launch of the ProAc Tablette 10 ProAc have been developing a Tablette 10 Signature version. It has taken a great deal of time to design a new bass driver with Excel magnet system and their own solid copper phase plug. The result is a bass driver with the Tablette 10 cone material and special copper magnet system.

During the design of the Tablette 10 the LS3/5A, along with other mini monitors, were compared to the Tablette 10 and in our opinion the Tablette 10 had lower colouration. The Tablette 10 Signature shares the attributes of the Tablette 10 but has a larger more projected mid-range giving excellent sound stage with a feeling of size which, is often missing in small loudspeakers.

  • Frequency Response 55Hz - 30kHz

K1
Starting at $11,900

The K1 is a special stand mounted version of the K-series, using the Kevlar cone as in the K range and the tweeter is also our proven ribbon unit. Certain modifications have been made to the Cabinet, bass driver and tweeter to make it adaptable for us to be able to develop this to be suitable for a stand mounted loudspeaker.

Although the K1 is a stand mounted loudspeaker is has a surprisingly extended and accurate bass response with the usual beautiful midrange from the K series bass driver used within the K series.

K3
Starting at $20,200

The new Kevlar drive unit was developed for the K3 and has excellent weight to the bass as well as good extension with a detailed and uncoloured midrange. This new Kevlar unit would go into a new speaker called the K3, two of these units are used with our ribbon tweeter placed centrally in our K constructed cabinet. A high quality crossover was specially designed for the K3 to seamlessly mate with the ribbon tweeter and this new crossover uses high quality components split for bi-amping and bi-wiring and connected directly to the terminals.

As far as sound quality goes the K3 has a wonderfully electrostatic type of midrange very clear and detailed, with a dynamic bass response.

We are sure the K3 will give customers who desire music from full orchestral to loud rock the desired results with ease.
