Default Pmc mb2 se in the house.

I am now a officially a pmc fanboy!

My previous speakers were vivid giya g3 followed by wilson
Sasha 2.

I was ignoring pmc with the wrong notion that they were below
The hierachy sound wise as compared to my previous speakers.
If we go about audiophile stuff like detail retrival, blacker bacground,
Sounstage depth and dissapearing act—my previous speakers
Especially wilson wins, but if you want musicality like just concentrating
To music as a whole hearing everything and freeing you from analizing
The music— pmci mb2 se is off the chart!

I am so enarmored with this speakers that i no longer gets distracted
And just listen and just let my guard down enjoying. No more
Analizing!

I dont feel like i downgraded at all since both ex are much more
Expensive, infact i feel like my enjoyment is a level or two up.

Thank you pmc!!!!

To fellow pmc owners—what brand of cables do you use?

Thank you

Elmer

Great to hear you are enjoying the actual music instead of sound. That’s the idea and whatever gets you there is the best for you. Enjoy. I don’t own PMC so can’t comment on any cables but I’m sure others will chime in.

Thank you.

I hope members dont misinterpret my post, dont
Get me wrong, i love both my exes and i was blessed
To afford them and be part of my audio journey. It was
Just a case of me just getting tired of over analyzing
The music to much.

I don't think anyone will misinterpret your post. We all have our preferences and we experiment in this journey we take with our hobby. Wilson are great speakers as are many others and PMC is certainly a great speaker as well. I have always heard very positive comments about PMC although I myself have not had the pleasure to live with a pair yet.

I see that you are a harbeth user.

Before i can never or dont understand what they meant by
“Accuracy vs musicality”, i really dont know if this is the
Right terms for both spectrum. But now i understand.

I think harbeth and pmc are more alike than different.

It's a pretty cool looking speaker, I've never heard a set of PMCs outside of a hotel room, I've always read how good they are. Are these similar in finish to what you bought?

Yes, I think they are of similar philosophy. Funny thing is that Harbeth was designed to be a very accurate broadcasting speaker for the human voice for BBC. It turned out to be a very good measuring as well as a very musical speaker over the decades. I believe PMC has a very similar design philosophy.

Congratulations Elmer...enjoy in good health.

Pictures of your setup would be nice

I just love those soft dome midrange units and how they implemented the transmission line.

Very different indeed. PMC has a combination of design features not found in other speakers. Transmissioin line bass loading, dome midrange, 'reversed basket' high-excursion woofer, large 4th-order 24db steep crossover network, thick high density HDF (Medite) cabinet, more...

Those are not exclusive features only found on PMC. Peruse any of the speaker part suppliers like Madisound or Parts-Express for example. Dome midranges, reverse basket, high excursion drivers, transmission line cabinets for the DIY crowd. All there.


All those features exist in various other speakers and different variations/combinations. There are literally thousands of speakers out there these days.
