Default Zaph ZRT -vs- ProAc 2.5 clone

Has anyone heard both of these?

What were your impressions?

I'm planning to build something like this in the not too distant future and have narrowed it down to these 2.

ZRT has better drivers and design by Zaph. It's not a commercial design unlike Pro Ac to begin with.
I build a 2.5 clone a couple of years ago and it's not bad at all but I would guess ZRT would blow them away.

Yes I firmly believe the ZRT will blow the clones away... with a great margin...

For less cost build Linkwitz' pluto. I had a friend who owns proac 2.5 clone over my house last week and he was amazed at how the sewer- pipe speakers sound.

I built the 2.95 clones 5 years ago.

The are probably the most popular and thus most critiqued speaker in the history of DIY loudspeakers. But despite everything that's been said about them, I think they still serve as a reference DIY speaker that has great bass and musicality.

The ZRT is what happens when you are given a clean slate with an unlimited budget to build the best vented floorstanding 2-way...

As a starter project it's hard to go wrong with either of these. Your next project will have to cost serious $$$, or be seriously large to outperform either of these.
