I seem to have been struck by the dreaded 'blank first post' problem. Anyway...!
I was just wondering what the DB1 Gold was? I haven't really seen much discussion or info on it, and I thought it'd be a hot topic as the DB1 is such a popular model. Unless, of course, I've missed all the discussion?
Just google it. It is a special edition, I hope to hear them next week.
There's an explanation here: http://www.sevenoakssoundandvision.co.uk/p/pmc-db1-goldspeakersincludes-free-metropolis-cd-cleaning-cloth

I have both Googled and seen them on Sevenoaks, ta, I just thought there might be a bit more info somewhere, or people with experience of them.
There have been plenty of comments about the DB1 lately, but few about the Gold version although it seems to have been out for a bit.
Or if you fancy saving yourself a few bob
The professional version .
Electrocompaniet EMC1UP Cd player , EC 4.7 pre , AW120 DMB power amp , PMC PB1i speakers . Isotek Titan / Nova , Nordost SPM speaker cable , Kimber KCAG balanced interconnects .
Linn LP12 Lingo , Ittok lv3 , Lyra Lydian , EAR834P .

I'd seen people mention that elsewhere. I'm a bit clueless though!
Did you consider those when you went for the DB1i? *edit* Ignore that, misread your system! Slight difference...

No I have the PB1i 's and there is no professional version of my model .
I am pretty sure the Pro versions of the DB1 is the same as the DB1golds but with a rugged textured finish and black screws .
The DB1i has the different i series tweeter and a choice of different veneers .
The sound from all versions should be quite similar, but I have only heard the DB1i version which is absolutely fantastic especially for it's size .
Thanks for that. I edited my post some time ago, strange that it doesn't seem to have updated. I just misread your sig, only about £5.5k of difference!
The 'Gold' version are only about £50 more expensive than the DB1S+, personally I really like the looks of the 'pro' version
Great little speakers
Michell Gyrodec SE / RB300 / Ortofon MC10 Supreme | Sony DVP-S9000ES
Doge 8 | MiniDSP | Decware Zen / Behringer A500
DIY Active Horns / Keesonic Kolt
With VAT, they are just about the same price as the 'Gold' version
The gold is an exclusive model for Sevenoaks - essentially the pro model. The key sonic difference is the better i series tweeter in the DB1i. At this level it is well worth considering the Twenty:21 from PMC
The Home Cinema Centre
Actually the price is including VAT
Ah ok, just be weary from there, everywhere else seems to have them for £775 ex VAT or around £950 Inc VAT.
Usually if something seems too good to be true.....
You could be right , but if someone is in the market for a pair it may be worth ordering a some and see what happens .
Just noticed they are selling the TB2s+ for £838.33 + vat a total of £1006 as well so maybe they are having a sale
Thanks, I thought it might be something like that. I'm not a fan of 'Exclusive' products, so I'd probably stick with the i version, or whatever designation comes out next!
Unfortunately, the Twenty.21 is too pricy for me at the mo, especially as I presume you need (or at least would be better with) the sloping stands too? I'd need a sub to go with them also, and I think the boss lady would go slightly bonkers if I spent over £1500, bearing in mind that I'm only changing my (£650) speakers because they're the wrong finish for our new flat
