    What's the latest, Paul? Maybe play around with speaker placement to moderate the bass? A few bass traps in the cards for you?

    PMC IB2i speakers are in my vehicle.

    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.

    Re: PMC IB2i speakers are in my vehicle.

    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.

    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.
