They are a great looking speaker. I had never heard of them before but found their website. Here's the link BTW.

They appear to be fairly easy to drive so you should have a good number of amps to choose from. I like pommy speakers, they often have a good clean sound with great definition, and I would say these would fit that bill.

Interesting to see a standmount transmission line too.

Look forward to hearing what you think when you get them AIA. I presume there is a distributor in Australian then?

Cheers,

Jake

I demoed PMC extensively, beautiful sound that's for sure. Probably the best I've heard from a bookshelf for a long while.

I think Bryston is the amplification most commonly paired with PMC. Not cheap though, maybe you can pick-up something second hand.

AIA did you get yours from CAV< and they ordered them from PMC or did you go to a UK supplier?

At CAV they are $2500 a pair, I got them from the UK for under a $1k AUD shipped.

Well they arrived today with some minor "in transit" damage luckily it is only minor cosmetics that can be fixed.

So after hooking them up all I can say is WOW! Easily the best speaker I have ever owned and I think that if I ever upgrade again it would be to another PMC.

I am in love. Perfect mid range, silky smooth vocals and no sweet spot. No matter where you are it is pure heaven.

I can not recommend these enough, Although upset at the initial learning of the damage to the rear corner I have no regrets in this purchase.

I will however suggest that if getting speakers shipped from OS, make sure they are double boxed and that you get insurance on them.

Got them for $1035 inc shipping from Canberra. This could mean that the TB2's could be up for sale.

      Item: PMC twotwo.6 Active Monitors (Pair) with Argosy Spire 420Xi stands and RC1 remote
      Location: South Australia
      Price: $5000
      Item Condition: Excellent
      Reason for selling: Change in circumstances
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
      Extra Info:
      PMC twotwo.6 RRP: $7,499 /pair
      Argosy Spire 420Xi RRP: $1,000 /pair

      Award winning active monitors from PMC.
      Suitable for studio or home use. High powered class D amplification for each driver and sophisticated DSP make the twotwo.6 an incredible sounding speaker for any use case. Completely neutral and with crazy detail the twotwo.6 is a true high end monitor. These have been used in a smoke free environment for both light mixing work and for music listening. Analog and digital audio inputs (XLR/RCA) as well as connections for the remote (supplied) and linking. I've put some links below for details on functions, specifications etc. Excellent condition, these have been well cared for since I purchased them in 2017 (I can PM receipt to interested buyer if required). Both boxes, manual, cords and accessories as well as the optional RC1 remote.

      Argosy Spire 420Xi stands are a rigid, stable solution with IsoAcoustic platforms built in. Quite large and heavy, they can be dismantled and packed if required but would prefer to keep as-is.

      Located in country SA near Clare (5453) so would prefer an SA purchaser; I can deliver to most northern/central suburbs of Adelaide if required. Any shipping will have to be organised by the buyer, I'm happy to drop off to depot etc if required and can work in with buyer on this. Any questions etc welcome. Thanks!

      Hi all, I am currently investigating stand mount speakers.
      I have listened to:
      Krix esoterix altum
      Dynaudio (multiple pairs) special 40 etc etc
      PMC 25.22
      Qaccoustics c300
      totem signature
      preference order (1st Krix esoterix, 2nd PMC, 3rd tie Qaccoustic + totem, 4th dynaudio)

      Want to listen to:
      Buchardt s400
      ATC SCM19
      Harbeth 30.1
      + 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.

      Item: PMC Twenty.22 Walnut Speakers
      Location: Brisbane
      Price: $1850
      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.
