You don't want to be part of that "focus 260 beats EVERYTHING" club anyway John,it gets a little tiring after a while.Why not jump on those Fact 8's? ;) :o
Thinking about it but still concerned they may be too forward sounding for me. Unfortunately there is really only way to find out for sure.

And I wouldn't worr about them being too "forward"; perhaps "lean" is the word. But still; that's not a bad word...and they are world-class, by any standard.

Looked at any reviews? Tom did own 8s, before his 12s; and he's even thought, of trading back down.

Again...if you have any interest; you really should let me, reach out to that seller for you.
That seller has a pair of Focus 340 too. Fair to say Dyn is a more dynamic sounding speaker?

"Dynamic"...maybe. "Musical"...not from the Dyns I've heard.

They're both great; as is a lot of gear. At this level..."better", is a subjective word.

To me...PMCs are more balanced. That being said...I miss some boom-boom myself; and might try another pair of Dyns.
That along with other things I've read and been told makes me think Dyn is the better choice for me at this time. I do want to give PMC a try but after a pair of Dyns. Now which one? IDK.

Really,you think Dyn's are"boomy",you have to feed them some juice to keep those woofers under control ;) :o

Uh...I've had amps, that are as much as 400wpc. Is that enough juice  ::)  :P

By "boomy", I didn't mean out-of-control, flabby bass; I just meant bass-heavy (at the expense, of mid reproduction, IMO. But such are speaker physics...IMO)

Really beautiful speakers.  And I've always loved the 23s because they are so very sleek and slim.  You get the imaging of a small monitor yet still get decent bass from the transmission line.

Better than "decent", as it turns out Tom. As y'all know; I've had 20-23, among many others...and so naturally people ask me to compare the Twenty v. Twenty5 models.

My answer to this point, has always been...at its simplest..."a little more refined, a little less slam". But I actually had, my best session with them the other night.

IDK; maybe it's like break-up sex...lol. But I really pushed them the other night (nothing unreasonable); and they didn't blink. In fact...they dug deeper, than I'd ever perceived before.

Was it my mood? Finally broken in, lol?? Can't say; but these really are dynamite, little floor-standers.

No remorse; I've been with PMC a long time (and not just long for me  :-[). Time for a change, and the R-300s are set-up statically and ready for run-in. S40s may be imminent.

Will be interested to hear your thoughts on the Special Forty's tweeter/highs.

I can't remember if you ever listened to Scansonics, but I really like their execution of the ribbon tweeter

Still researching. I'll post soon.  thumbsup

Guys...as predicted; I can't find a single incidence; of 25-23s listed yet...at least in North America.

They list for $5,400...and it goes without saying; they are in PERFECT shape. I'm the first owner, so...they're as I un-boxed them  thumbsup

Tom says ~$3900; which is close to 30% off MSRP. I'd go lower, if a "friend" wanted them.  ;)

Going lower than $3900 seems like a really good price. Saw a pair of 20.23 sell for around $3500 on Agon a month or 2 a go.
