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.

      For Sale the well known PMC  stand mount speakers. No stand though sorry. Bought these just over a year ago, so quite a bit of the 20 year warranty left.  I was using them as rear channel only in Home theatre, driven by some cyrus mono blocks they sound terrific slight over kill for rear channel and am doing a bit of a shuffle in the 2 channel system so NLR, they deserve more heavy use.  They present as new, with all original packaging, warranty card and boxes.  If you are building a home theatre I bought a twenty C at the same time also in black ash,  that I will be putting up for sale soon so happy to do a package deal on the centre channel also.  Prefer local collection but can ship at agreed price.

      Item Condition: Close to new Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available.,Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Ivanhoe East State: Victoria Payment Method: Cash, Bank Transfer or Paypal Reason for selling: Selling for a friend who has upgraded Further information: PMC Twenty.24 Transmission Line Speakers in Beautiful Walnut Finish.
      This brand and model should need no introduction, with glowing reviews everywhere.
      Second from the top model of this Series, with substantial but tight bass from their 3m "ATL" (Advanced Transmission Line), larger 170mm bass/mid driver and heavy 21 kg enclosures, RRP was $7999.
      With sensitivity of 90dB they are relatively easy to drive or place near a rear wall.
      All drivers, cabinets and grilles are in virtually new condition, with the exception of a couple of tiny cabinet marks which are just visible close up under certain light conditions. Would suit a reasonable new buyer. I'd love to be able to show off and demonstrate these speakers for a local buyer, but unfortunately under lockdown restrictions it's not legally possible at present.
      Please excuse my humble photos, which don't do justice to the quality of finish and beauty of the walnut grain.
      If you're a PMC fan without anywhere near $9889 to spend on a new pair of Twenty5.24 these could be the speakers for you!

      Item Condition: Mint Shipping Options: Pickup available and you can audition.,Shipping is included in price. Suburb or Town: Canberra State: Australian Capital Territory Payment Method: PayPal or bank transfer Reason for selling: Upgrading Hi everyone 
       
      I’m listing my pmc twenty5.23’s for sale as I’m upgrading.
       
      I won’t be able to post them until next week but thought I’d throw them up now. I’m happy to take a small deposit and the full amount just prior to me sending them. Hopefully this gives people a little time to get cash together or sell other things to finance them. 
       
      These speakers changed the game for me. They aren’t big but sound massive. I’ve honestly struggled to find any speakers under 10k (even some over 10k) that even come close. The sound staging is wide and pin point accurate, the sound is extremely balanced and rich and the lower frequencies are more than covered. They are also not fussy with amps or positioning so you can put them anywhere and get a great sound. These are widely regarded as the sweet spot in the pmc range. They also have a 20 year warranty from pmc. 
       
      The speakers present in mint condition and have been well looked after. I have all the original packaging and happy to ship. 
       
      I also have a matching PMC centre speaker if you’re keen on the bundle. Add $1500 if you want it. Otherwise I’m happy to keep it.  
       
      Notes:
       
      - free shipping is only to metro locations. Country or international buyers will need to pay difference between the cost of shipping to metro & their location - clause added as I got caught out with someone from Jakarta a few months ago.
       
      - take 10% off for local pickup in Canberra. 
       
      - buyer pays PayPal fees (+3%) or I’m happy to accept cash, bank transfer or trusted PayPal payment. 
       
      Thanks.
