Hi all, I am currently investigating stand mount speakers.
I have listened to:
Krix esoterix altum
Dynaudio (multiple pairs) special 40 etc etc
preference order (1st Krix esoterix, 2nd PMC, 3rd tie Qaccoustic + totem, 4th dynaudio)
Want to listen to:
+ any others people may recommend
I have a budget ceiling of $5000 and the Krix are well above this unfortunately.
If anyone has any insight or recommendations that could be awesome, or even if you're in Sydney and friendly enough to allow me to audition.
I am not a bass head (dont listen to EDM or HIpHop) More into natural sounding timbre, great sounding vocals and imaging (sucker for a sweat midrange).
I also don't want the speaker to sound (small). Qaccoustics really excelled here, sounded like a large floor stander.

PMC Twenty5.26 in best finish - Walnut.
BRAND NEW - UNOPENED / SEALED BOXES.
PRICED TO SELL! (RRP $14990)
Firstly, I love these speakers. When I first heard them, I totally fell in love. They have an amazing open soundstage and are second to none in terms of transparency, pace, imaging and dynamics. They have an incredible ability that tells you so much about the music. Hence the reason why this model is so very well known in the audiophile community.
The upgrade bug has now totally hit me and now have the opportunity to upgrade. I have also kinda convinced my partner so need to sell before she changes her mind)
Can arrange pickup, drop off locally in Sydney or can post Australia Wide (at buyers cost).
Purchased from Lifestyle Store.
Any queries please feel free to contact me.
Item: PMC Twenty.22 Walnut Speakers
Item Condition: Very good
Reason for selling: Upgraded to newer model
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal
Extra Info: PMC Twenty.22 speakers in walnut finish. I am the second owner, selling as I've purchased a pair of Twenty5.22s in oak.
A main reason for changing was aesthetic as neither my wife or I liked the Walnut finish (which doesn't match with anything else we have). Before deciding to purchase Twenty5.22 I auditioned a number of other speakers at home including Monitor Audio Silver 300s and Gold 100s. Both of these were priced above $3000 and in my opinion were not in the same class as the PMC Twenty.22 (which admittedly retailed for approx $4500 when new). You likely won't get a comparable or better speaker new for less than $4000.
If it wasn't for the walnut finish, I'd have likely kept these speakers for a long time. They have a high sensitivity and are easy to drive however I've read they improve with high power output amps. I ran them on a Marantz KI Pearl Lite and was very happy with their sound.
Full specs available on the PMC website: https://pmc-speakers.com/products/archive/archive/twenty22
The speakers have been very well looked after apart from a small scratch on the underside of one of the speakers as shown in the pictures. For a time they were placed directly on our entertainment cabinet (before I purchased stands) - to stop the cabinet and the speakers vibrating I attached small adhesive pads to the underside of the speakers. These can be removed if necessary, however I've left them on as they may be useful to the next buyer.
Supplied in original box and packaging. Can post with Australia Post, happy to provide a quote on request.
Item: PMC Twenty.23
Price: $ 2400 + shipping costs if not picked up
Item Condition: Good
Reason for selling: Want speakers that are easier to move around
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, PayPal (+$50)
These speakers have a fairly neutral balance, and excel at projecting a large sound stage.
The high gloss black looks elegant in any room.
They have a stronger and deeper bass than suggested by the small woofer, and this is achieved by the well tuned transmission lines.
Rhythm is good with a fast bass.
The two drivers integrate very well.
They are not quite as forward and exciting sounding as the Twenty.22, and are more laid back compared. However they are not laid back compared to the average speaker.
29Hz - 25kHz
8 ohm impedance

The one speaker has a faint line imprint on top (not a scratch), which you might see in the picture of the top.
