Good as the Quads are if you liked the PMC you won't like them... they're not the same presentation or style.
If you're looking for other speakers at the price point, Dynaudio Focus 110 can be had for similar and IMHO knocked the socks of the DB1+ - each to their own mind, i mean some people like the sound of MA Gold Series
Valid point - I listened to some Dynaudio - couldn't be bothered to find out what model as they seemed to lifeless! However, my MA GR10s push all my buttons (might be cos I'm getting on a bit so need the emphasised highs that others complain of!).
