I'd better start saving up my £45,000 *shok*

Also known as "the loudspeaker you will never hear"... , sadly they might be right . *sorry2*

Some interesting design choices. 4 Ohms and 86dB sensitivity. And ferro-fluid cooled tweeter.

I'm not sure if it's "the loudspeaker you will never hear"

More like if you want one you're FACT ;)

Nah , my amps relish the challenge of a bit of low impedance with 380 wpc into 4 ohms , 650 wpc into 2 ohms, and over a kilowatt into 1 ohm combined with 100 amps of current delivery !

With 4 Ohm and higher sensitivity they would be valve friendly at 86dB not so much. Ferro-fluid cooling is an interesting one.

But the price *shok*

Really ? I'm surprised you feel that about the looks .

I think they share more than a striking resemblance to the Dynaudio Evidence.

The PMC'S look like a bargain in comparison *biggrin*

Just watched a short video someone posted on AVF, and whilst only listening to it through my iPad Pro, it seemed very impressive! Am I contradicting myself there?! Sounded very “live”, although I’m guessing it was a stupidly well recorded track. Very interested in getting a listen to these.

Definitely fugly. I’m not keen on Dynaudios either.

I almost wet myself when I saw these on the PMC website. How do they compare with Fact 12? I said my next step was active MB2SE’s but... *man_in_love*

I was taken with the new plug ‘n’ play SME turntable and the d’Agostino amp with 6,000 watts, amongst others!

But surely anyone spending £15k on a turntable are going to want to audition a few phono stages and choose it in conjunction with the cartridge?! I presumed having on onboard phone stage it would be anbudget model...
True enough, David. It was maybe more the fact they had anything new and also as approachable as that. Obviously the new owners are heading down the lifestyle route, a la Devialet, as not enough cash flow from nerds and anoraks!

Bake-offs needed to assess how good these PMC's are and what their relative strengths and weaknesses are.
