UK loudspeaker manufacturer PMC is set to launch a new and exciting line of compact, state-of-the-art near-and midfield monitors that they claim will redefine the listening experience for every audio professional, whether they are working in stereo or large scale immersive formats.
The new range is made up of the PMC6, PMC6-2, and PMC8-2, along with their associated subwoofers the PMC8 SUB and PMC8-2 SUB. These monitors replace the company’s existing twotwo Series and have the same sound signature as PMC’s main monitor products and are therefore the perfect complement to them. The main monitors include the QB1, BB6, MB3 and IB2 models, which are found in many of the world’s top audio facilities such as Capitol Studios in Los Angeles, as well as project studios owned by internationally acclaimed producers.
PMC says it created the new range using a holistic approach to loudspeaker design, in which the company has analysed and addressed the impact every part of the monitor has on its overall performance. With 30 years of unique expertise and engineering skills to draw on, PMC has started from the ground up to ensure that these new products deliver the highest possible resolution with the lowest possible colouration.
Among the many fresh innovations PMC has incorporated are all-new drivers, cutting edge DSP and Class-D amplifiers, as well as significant improvements to the company’s proprietary ATL bass-loading and Laminair air flow technologies.
The low frequency extension of the new designs belies the cabinet dimension due to advancements in both woofer and ATL bass loading technology. These are scalable systems that can easily grow to suit the end user’s exact requirements. The active subs can be seamlessly combined with the monitors to create one of PMC’s unique twin-cabinet XBD systems that deliver extended bass and dynamics. Alternatively, they can be used as stand-alone LF monitors for sub channels. Future proofing has also been engineered into every model with advancements such as an expansion card slot for planned future signal interfacing options.
When it comes to configuration, PMC has paid close attention to making this as straightforward as possible via simple menu-driven controls on the rear panel, or through the company’s SOUNDALIGN network interface.
Accessed through wired connections to any standard network via any web-browser on a PC, Mac or Tablet, SOUNDALIGN’s digital connectivity allows users to individually control each monitor or set them up in defined groups ideal for large scale immersive systems.
