    Hard to beat

    Pmc TB2iPublished on 01/28/13 at 12:14

    This model is identical to the pro monitoring TB2S +, except that they are prettier bcp (wood finish) and the filter is 2 kHz instead of 3 kHz, the tweeter is different but also gives a very very close.
    Note that this is a fabric dome tweeter, for models with higher metal tweeter.

    I listened to all the monitors in the market between € 200 and € 2000 per pair.
    The best by far were:
    - PMC TB1 (the TB2 is an improved version of TB1)
    - JBL LSR 2325P (active)

    I bought both. See my opinion on JBL for more info.

    The PMC down to 40Hz, and even bcp lowest-X dB.

    I bought both. See my opinion on JBL for more info.

    The PMC down to 40Hz, and even bcp lowest-X dB.
    The highs are extremely thin, incredibly detailed, analytical but never tiring. Mediums are also fine and detailed, but never aggressive or fatiguing.
    Note the slightest defect immediately on these speakers is incredible.
    Serious down low and if your investment and your amp are good present as it should, neutrally, without exaggeration and very controlled. The bass is fast and accurate, not muddy at all.
    It is near perfect (if neutrality is your goal). If the recording is good sounds of hell, if it does not go bad. Ideal for mixing and mastering.

    Note that the placement is very important. If they are not bass-reflex, they have an opening at the rear (ATL: Advanced Transmission Line, shape bcp more efficient and more expensive to implement than the vents that are typically found in our forums days). Do not put them near a wall or in a corner, much less on the shelves: they have feet or a good location on a studio furniture made for this kind of thing.

    The wooden frame is amazing rigidity: they do not vibrate almost. The quality of the finish is impeccable.
    The terminals are gold plated and doubled: bi-amping or bi-wiring is possible.

    Most:
    - Detail
    - Neutrality
    - Very wide spectrum
    - Finishing and beauty
    - Terminal superb quality

    Cons:
    - It should not hurt to try to get the placement meiller and avoid any standing waves in your room, if you have a good piece that's okay.
    - It is a great amp to get the best: providing a power amp with a big, and try to put it on the marble to see, it can do wonders (I know it's hard to believe but it works and the difference is huge).

    In short, he is said to have put so much into the amp and the cable from the speakers ... if you want to get the best do not skimp on the amp or the cable. I personally use the Vovox recently and the difference is noticeable.

    Conclusion
    Brilliant speakers in monitor if your gear and your room is up to these speakers.
    Hi-fi, the problem is that they reveal defects and details that the average listener does not necessarily want to hear. That said, if you know and buy PMC is that you want the top, so you know what to expect already.

    PMC Professional Monitor Company means. QED.
    -----------------------
    Note that if one day you try these speakers as I did with an ordinary MP3 player, you will not have the slightest idea of ​​the potential of these speakers. By contrast, listened with a high-end CD player and an excellent amplifier (€ 2000), the difference is just HUGE. They then begin to live, to project sound, they take the body and the scale, everything becomes clearer and more precise ... DAY AND NIGHT. I stress once again the importance of having the right gear at the source. If you intend to connect it to a Pioneer integrated amp € 200 and output mini-jack your PC, it is not worth it. At best, these speakers will show you just how much the rest of your system is poor because they transcribe archi good source and therefore the differences between different sources.
