Default Twenty5 series

Who else has Twenty5 series, which model and color?

I bought my Twenty5 26 last month and absolutely happy with it. You throw any kind music to this pair, it will just sing nicely. Very transparent, and engaging speakers. Midrange is absolutely excellent which need to be heard to believe.

Size can be small, but when it sits on the right room size, i reckon this speaker is hard to beat.

I originally offered gloss black which was ready stock, but I decided to take walnut and I think this is the best color.

you appear to have a very well thought out system in place, I hope you enjoy it in good health always.

I have listened to the twenty5 series and they are a interesting progression from the I series. I prefered the fact 12's but its not a fair comparison due to the large price variation.

Please do share some photos of your rig, we do enjoy a lil audio porn around these parts.

Twenty5 26 in walnut. How do you like them compared to your 800D3, King?

essjay, which areas do the Fact 12s perform better? I've heard some saying that they rival MB2S in terms of the sound quality.

I haven't taken out my 800D from storage as the room is being renovated which take longer than i expected, it is different league with my 800D3, but I prefer twenty5 26 compared with my old 805D3 which I can sense the warmth and clarity better than the bw.

Totally, I was trying to see how far off they are from the 800D3

Midrange and bass....they only beat the MB2's in WAF ....not SQ. as far as domestic friendly options from PMC the 12's are next best option if you cannot get away with Ib2i's or their bigger brothers. Keep in mind neither the fact range or twenty5's come with the reference level mid range that made PMC famous in studio circles. the Fact 12's do come with a very good mid range and some very clever engineering but as we all know with our cars, there is no replacement for displacement.

I wish I had MB2i's in walnut, the special edition jap model is the next nicest finish but they go for silly money now. and for the record, I still miss my GB1i's which is what got me hooked on the PMC house sound.
