Re: PMC Fact 12

Some thoughts after running in the Signature version for the suggested 50+ hours. Very similar to the old model, which is a good thing, and to be expected as "all" they've done is upgrade the crossover. That said, there's more bass, strangely enough. Hard to expand on "more". May...

Re: The future of this forum

I apologise if its tone hit the wrong note. I can be irritating like that. All best, Neil Nah, you're alright Neil.

Re: PM - Subscription

The owner of the site, Robert is basically it, moderator wise and as posted in another thread, he doesn't really have time for the forum any more. Unfortunately I think that means he hasn't seen your payment and been online to adjust your permissions. I'm sure you'll get your money back eventually.

Re: Class D amps move up a level

Going from valves to class D (especially with Focal) will give you a very different sound. Try before you buy.

Re: Cyrus Stream x2- Apple music

Nope, sorry.
If you're buying second hand be aware that it needs the latest firmware to run Tidal and Qobuz and most dealers charge for it.
