ProAc Response D18

£2145

Almost everything about the Response D18 speakers screams ‘ordinary’. They’re fairly slim compared with some, and the optional ebony veneer (£400 extra) is a bit fancy, but no-one’s going to fall in love with the looks of these angular towers.

There’s nothing in the specification list that hints at greatness, either. So how did such a conventional speaker win our 2011 Best Floorstander £1500+ Award? By somehow sounding very special indeed.

What things? Tigerlily, 19, couldn’t possibly say, ‘but the trick is, never get caught,’ she explains. ‘As long as I work hard, he doesn’t mind.’

The model — ‘call me Tiger — has just finished

Primordial Medusa X79

Can this four-way Titan box dethrone Dream Machine?

With dream machine 2013 behind us (Sep­tember 2013), we now move into the phase where vendors line up to try to kick it off the top of the heap.

With the Medusa X79, Primordial cer­tainly tries its damnedest. Some will peep the jet-black Corsair 900D, four-way Titan SLI, and Asus Rampage IV Extreme moth­erboard and think Primordial tried to clone the Dream Machine’s internals.
