I really like to say HUGE thanks to Jeff a.k.a A/V solutions.

Last week or two I called him to discuss about the purchasing a PMC speakers and he was so busy to set it up his analogue gears. So I left the message with his wife...couple of hours later he called me back and spent ( Yeah it was long distance call too ) nearly almost half hour with me talked about the pros and cons about the PMC IB2i speakers he has. Remind you Jeff knew I can not purchase the speakers from him due to distance!!!!
- So this was first Thank you

Now today I posted this thread. Jeff....Oh I don't know what to say.....He left the congrats note on this tread but He also sent me the Private Message indicated as changing the jumpers improvements and offer me to send me the jumpers on his side.

Now look carefully . He could simply post that msg here and show off the people but he didn't....I mean he is in business and he can easily to show off and do some social business here and I'm in the sales so I probably do that for sure to get peoples attention for future preference but he didn't ....That really showed how good guy he is...

Jeff....You are the man. Thank you from bottom of my heart .

Thank you for the post. I've been told this PMC mid driver weight at 22 lbs and took 6 months to make by hand.

Also I was kind of worried about being as power hungry one. As moment I'm break in with my NAD int amp with it which rate as 50 watts and at 8 o'clock position that worry has been erased from my brain. :)

It does weigh 22 lbs. but it takes 6 months to train someone to build it, not 6 months to build it. Too bad Peter Thomas did not put as much effort into it's appearance, pretty plain looking given the price.

Yeah. Right ! Thanks for the correction. :)
I always loved the Britain box style speakers ( Harbeth , Spendor and Rogers ) and how they produced the realism in music.

I do agreed they could done better on appearance especially at $22 k price point and also yes you can find lot of better looking speakers at that price range. However I'm not sure they can match the SQ though. IMHO.

WOW!!!! So awesome! Excited for you. I understand the bass comment. I was overwhelmed at first too, but then I realized that I just wasn't used to hearing deep bass. It just is way deeper than anything I've ever owned. But it's not boomy or muddy and it's not out of proportion. Play something that has little bass and you won't hear any from the speakers. It just plays it when it's there. Also, it's best to have as neutral electronics as possible. Congrats. Enjoy that super clean clear mid range. Nothing like it.

After 17 hours playing .... Currently I pair them with the Kimber 4TC ( $ 5 / foot ), Sony CDX3 ES CD player( $1,000 ) with the NAD320 BEE int amp ( $399 ) on PMC IB2i speakers ( $22,000 ) so I can't comment other than just impression of their house sounds.

I've been playing few discs over and over again. ( Duke Ellington & Ray Brown : This one's for Blanton , Barney kessel,Shelly Manne & Ray Brown's : Poll Winners Three , Eiji Oue : Exotic Dances from the Opera , Melody Gardot : My one and only thrill )

The Midrange on IB2i's are just wonderful as many of you claimed. it's most neutral, natural, lifelike mid range I ever heard or owned.
Do I prefer over the Harbeth ? I will give that answer when it placed on my audio room with same gears.

The high is already edged the Harbeth big times. The low end is much deeper and tight as well but again this part I would leave it as is till pair them with main gears.

One thing I can clearly tell you .... This is the BEST Melody Gardot's voice I ever heard and I can't wait till pair them with MC275's.

November 24, 2013, 02:04 AM
Paul, do you find that each music recording has its own best match (loudspeakers, playback source, preamp, amp, speaker wires, interconnects, AC power cord, tra-la-la)?

And same for each format (different medium: analog LP and tape, or digital CD/SACD and hi-res audio file).

Almost like if you have 5,000 music recordings, for best reproduction from each one of them you roughly need 500 different audio rigs.
- Do they build houses with 500 music listening rooms? Well, let's not exaggerate, make that only 50 rooms. :)

Paul, do you find that each music recording has its own best match (loudspeakers, playback source, preamp, amp, speaker wires, interconnects, AC power cord, tra-la-la)?

You could be right but we never going to find out unless you have 500 listening room with different gears :)


And same for each format (different medium: analog LP and tape, or digital CD/SACD and hi-res audio file).

My thought is when they record and mastering with AAD ,ADD I would prefer to have on LP or Tape and DDD I would prefer CD/SACD or hi-res auido file.

As speaking of speakers...This is my thought before I pulled the trigger on the PMC IB2i.

As you already know I have a VA the Music and had SF Elipsa , Harbeth M40.1, B&W 801, Totem...etc.

I found it wasn't easy to find a speakers make the human voice right ( neutral, natural, lifelike ) People keep talking about how low it can go on bass and how crisp and airy on high ....but on my thought is if some or any speakers can produce the human's voice perfect every other instruments will just come along. ( by the way I think the human's voice is most beautiful instrument )

The Music speakers is only speakers that can cover the 10 octaves on human's voice and that just made me to purchase the speakers without thinking twice and luckily it does the excellent job on every other parts as well so I guess I'm lucky to have a Music speakers , PMC IB2i and Rogers LS3/5A speakers on my collection.

Also now I understand the reason why the JVC recording studio ( plus hundreds of studio ) uses same speakers as mine and a lot of celebrities ( PMC owners ) as well ( Including Stevie Wonder, Brian May , Robbie Williams....etc) all around the world.

Not surprising. A dome midrange has a much larger voice coil that a cone midrange which renders male and female voice more realistically. Wait until you hook up the MC275 to the IB2i. You will forget you ever owned Harbeth.

Well...The Music speakers are my main speakers and I love everything about them....I don't think I can compare with PMC to VA Music. They are totally different animal. If I have to live with one speakers it would be the VA Music.

I went to Angie's corner and she had a SF Strads on display and as a previous owner of Elipsa I always wanted to have a Strads one day. So I asked if I should upgrade my Music speakers to Strads ? she replied " That's not an upgrade Paul. I would keep the Music over the Strads" and she is selling both brands.

Paul - when I heard the PMC speakers at RMAF - I immediately began thinking where I could put them! Congrats on a fabulously musical speaker with a midrange that's one of the best. I bet with your 275's, these speakers sound incredible.

Paul,
Thank you for answering my question about the comparison of The Music with the PMC speakers. Do the VA Music speakers do well with rock and sub par recordings?
thanks,
Anshul

Nope My wife is cool with music. It's just matter of room size Bob. Upstair's room is only 14X15 and basement is 18X28 and as you already know the Music is huge speakers and I think she would work better in bigger room. Well,,,If not I can always go back too :)

That's a great thing to check indeed.

Anshul....They can rock if they are in the right room. With their (3) 23cm proprietary X3P Spider-Cone woofers supposed to go low as 22 hz however I measured in my small room it went down to 24 hz.

I had a JL Audio F113 before but with my Music speakers they never had a chance to work so I sold them.:)

I'm so sorry Joe ...I didn't mean to hurt your feeling....I know you have a special feeling about the Strads....I love them too...

However do you remember Mike's comment about the strads ? He said " If I listen to Classical music only ? I would keep the strads forever..." Oops did I hurt your feeling again ??? :D

Ha!

No. I like what I like. That's why there are sooooooooo many pieces of gear to choose from. It's all good. I am not sure what I will end up buying but it's fun to look!

Joe, What do you think about the JOB on my new speakers ?

Frequency Response: 25Hz-25kHz

Impedance: 4 Ohms

Recommended Amp Power: 180-900W

Sensitivity: 89dB 1w 1m


Paul,

For me it would be more than enough power. If you like to crank it, it might be a problem. See what power levels you hit on your MC601's and let me know. The Job is 125 wpc and can hit a peak of 210 but I do not think it has the headroom to make you feel the bass without problem. My TADs are 86 dB efficient and I find it great for my taste/levels.

Ha, Paul's youtube video.

* Can't really assess the sound quality from a youtube video (low-res audio) and through your PC's (Mac) speakers.
- Paul is best positioned to reply.

P.S. I knew you were going to say that: "tad of salt on the eggs" ...It did cross through my mind, honestly. :eyebrow:

The joys of listening to music, buying - selling - trying different pces.

Best of luck in your sale, I have a marvelous pair of speakers that I decided to put up for sale so if you know anyone looking specially locally they would be very fortunate to own.

They list for $70K and I'm asking only $33,900 - Evolution Acoustics MM3

10Hz - 40kHz frequency response, each speaker has a internal 1000 watt amp to drive the 15" woofers
Sensitivity is 93 db so minimal amplification needed
