PMC OB1 speakers

Indlæg Skrevet: 30. okt 2018, 11:26

Hello, Has anyone used PMC OB1 speakers for mastering or had experience with them in a studio environment? Im looking to buy my first pair of speakers solely for mastering work.
Thanks,
Ross

PMC generally makes great speakers. I haven't heard the PMC OB1 specifically, though.

I was talking to www.lydbutikken.dk (at Frederiksberg Allé) about mastering speakers recently, and even though they don't have much experience with audio production (they're more of a typical hifi store), they did suggest that if I wanted a speaker demonstration, I could call them some days in advance, and they would hook up some of the PMC and Harbeth speakers that they thought would be good choices for this purpose.

They have a nice demo room, and I'm sure if you burn an audio CD with some music that you know, they'll be able to play that. They also have a good selection of LPs.

Thanks Holger. Yes they seem to straddle hifi and studio monitor which I think is good for mastering.

Thanks Joachip. I'll get in touch. The OB1 is an older model but I'm sure they'll have an equivalent. I'm also curious about Harbeth. Much appreciated.

I have their smallest active model, though discontinued now, the DB1S-A, with a K+H O800 sub. At the time of purchase I wasn't aware PMC made a matching sub.
I don't do mastering, and my room is definitely not fit for such critical tasks, but if I should upgrade I'd go for the TwoTwo8, and hopefully eliminate the need for a sub.
It has taken me a long time to learn the PMC's properly, but I've been really satisfied with them since day 1.

Hi Christoffer, thanks for sharing your experience with PMC. I'm going to Lydbutilken today to listen to some pmc and harbeth models. Should be fun.
Good day.
