PMC fact.12 loudspeakers

PMC Fact 12

This speaker is one of those rare hi-fi components that tells you so much about the music and the rest of the system that it becomes difficult to make notes about. It’s clear that it is a milestone product, one that puts PMC into the premier league of loudspeaker brands. Not only does it look exquisite for a decent size speaker, it is second to none in terms of transparency, pace, imaging and dynamics. Some will prefer a heavier sound no doubt, but I suspect that the fact.12’s presentation is more accurate because of its speed, heaviness is more likely to be an artefact of cabinet materials than the recording. Unless you’re talking about thickener, don’t worry, if you put on ‘Enter Sandman’ you can hear the thickener. Alternatively try Jimi Hendrix at Miami Pop; he didn’t need thickening and neither do these.
