Watch out for: ProAc Carbon Pro 6
ProAc's flagship speaker the Carbon Pro Eight now has a "younger brother" - the ProAc Carbon Pro Six was launched at the CES in Las Vegas earlier this month.
David Amey, head of DNA Marketing which markets ProAc speakers around the world, said production of the ProAc Carbon Pro 6 will begin by the end of February.
"It will have the same ribbon tweeter as the Carbon Pro 8 while the dome mid will be from Visaton. There will be two 6 1/2-inch carbon-fibre woofers.
"Just like the ProAc Carbon Pro 8, the Pro 6 will have carbon-fibre horns for the dome mid and carbon-fibre composite plinths. The bass loading is similar to the higher model - downfiring and aimed at the plinth," David, who was at CMY Damansara Utama in Petaling Jaya on Sunday to unveil the ProAc Carbon Pro Eight speakers, said.
He added that with the Carbon Pro Eight taking over as ProAc's flagship speakers, the Pro Ac Response D100 has been discontinued.
In terms of size, the Carbon Pro Six will be taller than the ProAc D28 but shorter than the D38.
In the United Kingdom, it is priced at 18,500 pounds. The Malaysian price is not known yet, but a pair should arrive at CMY's showroom by April/May.
