Description

Soon to be upgrading my speakers from the PMC OB1 to the PMC Fact8....I'm rather nervous about this since I've had my OB1's for a very long time....and my dealer insists the Fact8 is a better sounding speaker!  I'll also be changing my speaker cables from the Au24/e (I had them upgraded to the "e" designation a few years ago) to the Au24SX....Again, I've had these speaker cables for a LONG time...and LOVE them...so I'm hoping that moving to the SX will be a sonic improvement!  

Selling my turntable...and recently acquired the Auralic Vega G2....which I LOVE!!!!!

Tony,
Good to hear power is not an issue with your OB1's. Most PMC speakers can go really loud and rock the house, especially FB1+'s and above.

I've got the LB1 Signatures which was the replacement to the Classics. I certainly liked them a lot with their neutral and clean presentation. Quality speakers no doubt as they were being used in some recording studios worldwide. The only weakness they have is deep bass but I have compensated this with the employment of a sub. They were discontinued just recently as Dynaudio has stopped supplying their drivers to PMC(the LB1's use Dynaudio drivers).

The PMC OB1's are great speakers. I wonder how your YBA's 75W is in driving them. They proved to be quite a difficult load I presume.

I am actually in the verge of getting the LB1 Signatures from my local dealer who is clearing them at a discount. From my understanding, the FB1+'s and OB1's utilize Vifa drivers while the discontinued LB1's use Dynaudio drivers. I can agree that the bass on OB1's is very good. Even on the diminutive LB1's, the bass is excellent and goes deep. In direct comparison with the B&W N805's, the bass is much better, the overall sound more controlled, and the sound of electric guitar's jammin more real. Awesome with Bryston electronics.
