for sale are a 99.99% NEW pair of high end PMC fact.8
Tower Speakers in Tiger Ebony finish. Here is the reason these are being
sold on eBay:
Soundwaves has been a proud Authorized reseller of PMC
Loudspeakers for 8 years. In those years, it was often very difficult to sell
high end, audiophile grade speakers without a dedicated listening room, so the
sales were few and far between. Still, PMC
stuck with us so there was some presence in Southeastern Massachusetts.
In this last sale, we ordered the wrong finish and the mistake was not caught
until I removed the speakers from the boxes and started the burn-in procedure.
The process went for about 5 minutes before the mistake was discovered and the
speakers repackaged to as close to factory fresh as possible. This is the reason
these speakers are essentially new, but cannot be stated as such.
this mistake, Soundwaves has decided to exit the high-end market of speakers and
for this reason, PMC has given us permission
to sell them on eBay instead of incurring the cost of shipping them back with
restocking fees. This can be a great boon to anyone who is currently looking for
a great deal on some VERY good speakers that are rarely, if ever discounted.

Writeup on these speakers:
With the phenomenal benefits of PMC’s ATL™ (Advanced
Transmission Line) technology, the fact.8
floor-standing model produces the commanding power and scale that is capable of
filling both medium and larger rooms with awe-inspiring dynamic sound. With
its compliment of twin fact bass drivers and ultra high resolution fact tweeter, they project an all encompassing, vivid sonic picture
that can be experienced by all. These cutting edge precision drivers are
seamlessly integrated with a highly sophisticated 24dB per octave crossover
network and, in combination with the ultimately inert ATL™ cabinet,
create an entirely natural and refined balance where vocals hang in space and
are truly tangible.
