"The best sound that I have heard within the budget and £5k above. Real deep tones, musically fantastic, real warm mid range and amazing detail. Started to listen to all my music that I have not heard for a while and it is all new over again. Good work !"
Mr P, West Malling
"I was stunned by how revealing these speakers are, especially in the mid-range frequencies, and with such a well-balanced bass sound. They make instruments sound so pure. I can't stop listening to them!"
Mr N, Huntingdon
"Fantastic Fact 12. The best sound you could ever wish from a domestic speaker providing you have complementary kit, which I have in the form of a Bryston 4BSST2, BP26, BDA1, BDP2. The sound is so open and spatial and all types of music just jump out at you and you just go "wow" - incredibly deep bass and the 11' ATL certainly does the trick. Now all I have to do is play my whole cd collection, iTunes and Spotify through them, which may take a while. Do I really have to go to work again? I know where I would rather be and what I'd rather be listening to!"
Mr D, Weston-super-Mare
"In the price range, absolutely the best speakers I have ever heard. Not only that, the finish (in my case rich walnut) and aesthetic design is impeccable. It exudes quality."
Mr P, Puerto de Mazarron
"I am really enjoying listening to music with these speakers. I have a Naim 500 system which I have had for several years, building up in stages from my first Naim amp and preamp in 1984. These speakers have way more ability to produce bass than the (25 year old) Naim SBLs which they replace. The benefit of that is particularly noticeable in classical pieces with a lot of percussion eg a piece by the composer Edgard Varese - 'Ameriques'. The percussion instruments are very detailed and whereas some speakers give you a thudding sound with a drum, these ones have the timbre and speed that enable a much fuller, more natural, and enjoyable sound to fill the room. However, I quickly found that I stopped listening to what these exceptional speakers can do, and moved to enjoying their very easy to listen to sound with out thinking about the technichal wizardry that was reproducing it. There is no doubt that a Naim 500 system is a big factor in that - but the Fact 12s really let me enjoy what a 500 system can do. (I now realise that's quite a bit more than it did before.) The rhythm in the music is that little bit more engaging, and the detail in the instruments and singers and a sense of delayering and openess in the music enable me to hear and enjoy my CDs and LPs in a whole new way. (My Naim 01 tuner is also even clearer, with an added awareness of the quality and type of recording being played - at least on BBC 3) I listen to music in my sitting room. I like it to look like a sitting room, not a Hi Fi istening room. The Fact 12s look elegant and fairly discrete - 'good furniture', so its a particular delight that I can enjoy the very engaging way they reproduce music in a room which has a welcoming appearance to others."
Mr I, London
"I have only had the Fact 12 running for a couple of hours, they replaced the OB1i. These are all and more than I expected, I hope to have a long relationship where I get to know them well...."
Mr R, London
"Another excellent loudspeaker. As a long term owner of PMC PBi loudspeakers I have been amazed at the improved sound quality of the fact 12s. Better, more refined bass and sweeter, crisper high frequencies combined with far improved stereo imaging."
Mr M, Ashford
"Amazing sound quality at every level."
Mr S, Waltham Cross
"Still running in however I do find late night listening at low volume a joy because of the detail and even handed presentation of the frequency extremes. I'm definitely hearing new nuances in music which I've listened to for many years which is the point of buying new equipment. Vocal phrasing is particularly acute as you can hear when the singer is moving about in front of the mic and the sound level changes."
Mr R, Uttoxeter
"These are simultaneously the most natural and exciting sounding speakers I have owned or heard. The bass resolution is unbelievable for such a comparatively small enclosure, like some kind of magic act!"
Mr. L, Stoke on Trent

Mr T, Stoke on Trent
"A very neutral and and highly detailed speaker resulting in an engaging experience. Upgrading to the Fact 12 has allowed me to hear so much more of what is in the recording. Timing is excellent too. The fact 12 copes with whatever you throw at it."
Mr J, Barking

"...probably the most accurate loudspeakers currently on the market, when listening you very quickly become aware that you are hearing something very special & most probably like nothing else you've ever encountered beforehand. "
Mr H, Maidstone
"What an absolutely outstanding first class product... These fact12's must be an absolute must for anyone who intends to hear music!!!! "
Mr H, Maidstone
"After having owned a pair of PB1i and now upgraded to the fact.12 I can finally say that the search for my perfect loudspeakers have come to an end. "
Mr J, Switzerland
"The Fact 12 is just so natural sounding right across the spectrum without compromising on detail, transients and speed. Pretty damn good. "
Mr M, London
"This is my third set of PMC's - first, the FB1i, then the fact.8 and now these, the fact.12. Truly these are bucket-list speakers. Everyone should own a pair of these before they die...An awesome achievement. "
Mr S, Winnipeg
"Fantastic out of the box. What an dynamic and revealing speaker, it's like having a live concert in my living room! Fantastic upgrade from PB1i signature, and that is one of the best speakers I heard, says a lot of how good the Fact 12 is. "
Mr B, Oslo
"The most involving and revealing speakers I've ever heard, with layer upon layer of well defined detail. "
Mr M, Newquay
"The new midrange driver does a fantastic job of conveying vocals with incredible realism, whilst the new bass drivers combined with the ATL produce bass that is so deep, fast & controlled , that it beggars belief from a cabinet this size. "
Mr M, Newquay
"They quite literally blow me away! Combining these attributes with gorgeous aesthetics and attention to detail, plus PMC's exemplary customer service makes ownership a real pleasure! "
Mr M, Newquay
