Now that they've been officially announced at Munich, I can let you know that I'll be getting one of the first pairs of Fact 12 Signature Edition off the production line!

When Fanthorpes placed the order back in December, PMC informed them that they were experiencing manufacturing issues with the white finish and there would be a delay until around March. In the meantime, PMC lent me their white show speakers so that Fanthorpes could have their demo set back. A few weeks ago I was informed there would be a further delay as they're working on a tweaked version, and I'd be getting a pair. I suspect PMC simply ran out of white stock and weren't producing any more. Either way, I'd be a bit miffed had I settled for graphite.

There don't seem to be many changes, which I consider a good thing. Mainly an improved crossover design from the Fenestria. I'll let you know if they sound different.

The PMC room was the most interesting and impressive this year in Munich!

Mainly because it was about music. They played a brand new unreleased Dolby Atmos version of Miles Davis Kind of Blue on a 20 speaker setup. The Sound engineers from Capitol records, representatives/family from the Miles Davis foundation.
The engineers explained how they had done the new Kind of Blue recording.
There where also some other great Atmos mixes played by other artists equally impressive.
It must have cost a fortune to fly that many people in from the US.

I did unfortunately not hear the Fact 12 Signature. I only recognized the three fenestria in the front.

Hard to miss!
A lottery win and a new house to fit them in and I'd have a white pair in a heartbeat.

Of course I am not stupid enough to actually do the lottery O0
