Mentioned here briefly before.

Imho a bit of a design disaster but it seems a solid integrated with benefit of tone controls.

Interesting that PMC deemed 90 watts enough. It seems to have a decent power supply for its rating and is obviously enough for even PMC's upmarket domestic offerings.

Built by Bryston for PMC?

Another one I would like to hear at Bristol.

Certainly an "interesting" design, and one I could possibly live with, although I'm sure it would be a dust magnet (especially in black) with all those nooks and crannies!

It's a very impressive integrated, quality made equipment I would be glad to own, regardless who actually builds it.



Rated output power: 95W into 8Ohms, 140W into 4Ohms

Frequency response: 20Hz - 20kHz +0/-0.2dB 5Hz - 80kHz +0/-1dB

Dedicated PSU for the pre section. Really nice. And I mind the looks in black less than the 1980's ugly silver.

It looks a bit basic inside where are the heat sinks and no shielding around the power supply it looks like someone just laid everything inside and wired it all up and then turn round and say that’s £4000 please

OK, so they did........ wonder if they sold many.

The substantial casing are the heat sinks. I prefer that to internal heat sinks with arrays of huge slots in the top plate which, whilst effective, let dust in ... hello Schmegel (and others).

The design is super efficient, there's breathing area for components, distance for less EMI, heatsinks are outside, beautifully layed out, tidy, servicable... I can't flaw it.

It does seem that a lot of thought has gone into its design I agree, and its not that ugly ;-)

Did they (PMC) not do any Design survey or sth. similar ? It's really an odd Design. Same with Cyrus Lyric...still Lyric looking better. Looks like they wanted to go into the retro direction but went into the strange Design. I get their point...but still, not this way...Their LSs looking definitely much better...For some who are not into Hi Fi they might think at the first glance that it is a new Playstation or a some game console...(?)

Style is a personal thing. I kinda like it!

Sometimes function and design are the be all. Sod all else. My power amp looks like a brick, but whatever I don't act have to look at it all day.

Of course of I could afford it I'd go with D'Appolito........ ;-)

Imo it's one of the best looking pieces of hi-fi out there (but what do I know, I like the look of Yamaha amps as well). Of course not the same direction as Chord or Nagra, but I like old-school looking stuff, like Lamm. I'd love to hear one, even if the price is pretty high...

Why not the understated looks of the Zanden Model 6000 integrated valve amplifier?



I bet it doubles down as a lemonade machine.
