PMC OB1 floor standing speakers in vey good condition and perfect working order w/ original boxes packaging. These cherry wood speakers were top of PMCs first home hifi range.Up until that point PMC had focussed of studio monitors. The result is a very accurate sounding speaker with no artificial emphasis on high/mid/low frequencies. I have owned these speakers for many years and have finally made an upgrade. By todays speaker standards, the OB1s still sound exceptional.
The high and low frequencies that these speakers can handle will impress you. I have used musical fidelity and bel canto amplifiers to drive these speakers and results with both were impressive. The depth of bass is a particular strength I loved. Frequency response is a phenomenal 29Hz-25kHz.
Both speakers are in great condition - one speaker has a very small indentation on the rear edge- as this is at the back this is usually not visible. One plinth also has a small scratch that could be covered up with a black sharpie pen. There is also a small indent on the bottom of one of the black plinths- you will only see this when the speakers are upside down! You can use the speakers with or without the plinths. The speakers come with a complete set of the 8 original spiked feet.
(Note the feet in the photos are not included in the sale). Each speaker has 3 pairs of binding posts - so they can be wired, bi-wired and even Tri-wired. You can also bi-amp or even triple amp! I used the speakers in a bi-wired configuration.Included are one pair of brass binding post jumper /links / bridges per speaker. Unfortunately I have misplaced the other two pairs, but this is easily solved- all you will need is your own links or jumper cables. If you like I can also make up some basic ones using qed speaker cable - just let me know. From the original release brochure... The OB1 is the first 3-way design in the PMC line-up. It represents a step-up in performance when compared to any of the 2-way models, offering additional resolution in all areas. The OB1 employs an identical tweeter to the FB1+, but attains an even higher level of performance and signal resolution.
The addition of a dedicated 75mm soft dome mid-range device, housed in an isolated enclosure, projects the critical vocal ranges far into the room, enveloping you in the performance. Bass is better defined, with the more piston-like woofer, which enhances the attack of bass notes, making them cleaner and crisper. Moving to a 3-way device involves a far more sophisticated crossover network.
To ensure the optimum functioning of all these highly specified components and eliminate cabinet colouration, the OB1 cabinet wall thickness has been increased to a combination of 18mm & 25mm. The OB1 is at home in a multitude of spaces, from small to larger open plan sitting rooms. The OB1 will not inhibit extreme upgrades to source equipment, they simply act as a conduit allowing the quality to flow through.
