The high end of PMCs more domestic product, this pair of PB1i Signature loudspeakers represents superb value. Full working order and superb condition. No cabinet damage, just a little sun fade as usual so darker where grilles were on. One bass driver (see pic 5, the bottom woofer) has a crease in the dust cap. Priced low to sell as a result or plus £250 extra for a brand new replacement if the buyer requests. Fully boxed. Delivery by pallet only so no further than Europe.

They are finished in the rare ‘rose palissandre’ finish. This is a proper rosewood type veneer (just google it!) which is not the usual cheap red stained walnut you see most often. A rich mix or browns, russet and black. The nicest of its type since early AE1s and 2s… Stunning!

PMC say: The impact, dynamics and sheer scale of the latest addition to the award winning i series is breathtaking. Those looking for razor sharp imaging and a gripping presentation in a slim line aspect should look no further than the PB1i.

Its ability to resolve every nuance in the mid and high frequencies derives from the combination of a silky smooth PMC/SEAS® developed tweeter and a professionally proven three inch (75mm) soft dome mid-range.

PMC’s research into driver design has again produced dramatic results with the development of a new bass driver specifically engineered for the PB1 . The blend of ultra stiff lightweight cone and huge magnet assembly produces a highly potent device. The combination of two units working in tandem within a newly developed ATL makes for a clean, fast and exceptionally extended bass response.

Though substantially built, the PB1i offers an easy load and is therefore easily matched with a wide range of high quality amplifiers. This ease of drive is readily apparent on audition, the response remaining even and smooth throughout.

Seamlessly integrating the high, mid and bass drivers is a hand built, 31 element, 24dB per octave crossover network. This network of hand selected, measured and recorded components precisely divides the incoming signal from the amplifier. It only permits the required frequency range to be fed to each of the three drivers, increasing their power handling abilities and optimising the speaker’s ultra wide dispersion characteristics. A natural rich balance and stereo image can be enjoyed over a wide area, not only in the prime listening position.
