"Having purchased HI Fi for the last 35 years these are by far the most detailed and engaging speakers I have ever owned. Build quality is superb, I have not stopped smiling whenever I put them on. They are a credit to the manufacturers and made in the UK!"
Mr I, Bridgend
"As soon as I heard them demo'd I knew it was what I was looking for.."
Mr E, London
"I decided to upgrade my hi-fi after 20 years of use. Michael and Peter at Lintone Audio, Gateshead, advised that my initial choice of speakers wouldn't do justice to my new amplifier. After testing several speakers the standout speakers, both within my budget and those (unfortunately beyond it) were all PMC. The company ethos, product history and enthusiasm shone from the PMC website and catalogue. The speakers reflected this, in their quiet classy subtlety and attention to musical detail. I look forward to using these speakers over the next twenty years, especially as they are already revealing new items in music which I thought I knew well. Thank you"
Mr G, Gateshead

Mr R, Dublin
"Very pleased with the finish (black lacquer)and above all the sound. from a domestically sized speaker (this is my second system in our main living space) .
