PMC TWENTY5.26I FLOORSTANDING LOUDSPEAKER
August 2, 2021 § Leave a comment
Switching to the Moor Amps Angel 6, an amplifier that has since become a mainstay of my system, and pairing it with the Allegri Reference preamp took the experience onto another plane, revealing qualities in recordings that had hitherto been very well hidden. The twenty5.26i laps up upgrades in source and amplification, making it clear that its transparency and neutrality are there to be exploited. This amplifier’s dynamic range makes most alternatives sound compressed; it’s not unduly powerful (150W/8 Ohms) yet it finds dynamic contrasts that can be positively shocking, such as the bass that comes out of Bugge Wesseltoft and Henrik Schwarz’s ‘See You Tomorrow’ (Duo, Jazzland), is a track I’ve played many times yet never really heard it seems. It’s remarkable what modern loudspeakers can find hiding on your favourite albums, the state of the art is clearly progressing at a healthy pace.
