Fostex PM-2 MKII: opinions?

Anyone heard this?

Is it suitably bright and detailed?

Thanks in advance...

I've owned them. They are "OK"

When I bought them they were only £300 in a sale, not sure how much they are now and what they compare to.

Their sound is slightly rolled off top, the bass doesn't go as low as you might think and their mid is a bit cloudy compared to higher priced speakers.

They sounded polite, went quite loud but didn't reveal too much finer detail in mixes.

They imaged quite well, but ultimately sounded flat.

I'd buy them again over the usual lower priced monitors. They are certainly made very well and look like they'd last quite a while.

Have you tried those other fostex speakers with the purple crinkled cones, they were quite a step up in detail.

But, bump - anyone else heard them?

bump - would like to hear more opinions on this monitor...?

Or can you guys recommend anything else that is meant to be brighter sounding and bass-weak in the $350 - $500 dollar price range and is an 8" woofer model?

bump - it's crazy how little attention these monitors have received.

I can't find one magazine review of them, and this is probably one of the only threads on them.
