Home audio or pro audio?

I went into an audio store not knowing it was only dj and professional systems nothing home audio. They did a few demos and the stuff kinda sounded better for a fraction of the cost. I have an $80k home theater system, and looks like if I went with pro imi could get more power and same sound for less than half the price, anyone ever notice this?


I’m a wanna be musician. I own Focal Solo 6BE monitors and did have a Focal Sub6. They are VERY bright in addition to not having much detail. As I recall, if you fell on the impedance curve you would die from stab wounds. They do not sound at all like the kind of speakers we normally have as audio enthusiasts.  They sound dry and have no life. The Sub6 sounded muddy and does not have controls like a modern audiophile subwoofer.

There’s a person here on Agon that runs Genelics in a surroundsound system and loves them.  

So IDK?…




+1 @ghdprentice he saved me a lot of writing, pro audio and home audio are two completely different animals. 

Pro audio invents innovates audiophile products incorporate this. Many pro audio companies are later discovered by audiophiles the prices go up so audiophiles feel secure knowing they didn't buy pro audio. lol

My experience with pro has been pretty mixed.

I use Canare Starquad for interconnect and Bryston to power both woofers and HT. Very, very good.

But some of the systems put together by pro shops sound absolutely abysmal. To me. YMMV

I say, shop with your ears.
