    I’m interested in a pair of these for occasional use, but wondered about which model.
    The early ones appear to have a polypropylene bass/mid. & wood veneered cabinets, with rear
    reflex ports.

    The later ones are black ash, with what looks like coated paper bass/mids. and front ports.
    I prefer the look of the earlier models, but the later ones are quite acceptable.

    Do any PFM members have experience of these speakers ?

    I happen to have the older ones, but I haven't heard them in well over 10 years, and they are presently in a system and room not conducive to critical listening.

    They figured in a review I did ages ago, maybe this is of some use:

    I owned a set that I bought in 1984, mine had the white polypropylene bass units. I thought they were pretty good at the time - much better than the Mordaunt Short MS10s that they replaced. Eventually I replaced them with Royd Sapphires - which were quite a bit better.
    When they were new I'd say they were at a level just above the cheapest "real" hi-fi speakers (AR18s etc).
