UK manufacturer PMC has announced a new multichannel amplifier specifically designed to meet the needs of the professional immersive audio and home cinema markets.

PMC power 750-8 The PMC power 750-8 is an eight-channel amplifier that combines transparent and neutral sound with a power output of 750W/. When bridged and configured as a four-channel amplifier, the power 750-8 can deliver 1.5kW/channel from 2U of rack space.

In addition, the power 750-8 also offers fully featured DSP control for each of the eight channels. Inputs are selectable/switchable as either balanced analogue or Dante. Adjusting EQ for each channel is also incredibly easy thanks to System Engineer software that can be installed on any Windows computer to control and set up any number of amps. This powerful yet intuitive software gives a full toolbox to allow users to configure each speaker to deliver its best performance according to room acoustics and position within the room.

Significant growth in Dolby Atmos music mixing has been a key factor in PMC’s decision to launch the power 750-8. The company’s professional monitoring systems are now widely regarded as the standard reference for Dolby Atmos for Music thanks to their headroom, power capabilities, accuracy and sonic fidelity, which ensures that they go well beyond Dolby’s minimum requirements. In addition, PMC’s close relationship with Dolby has seen the company champion immersive audio for nearly ten years with the result that PMC systems are now the mainstay of music facilities including Universal Music Group, Atlantic Records, Dean St Studios in London and the Abbey Road Institute in Miami. Producers and engineers including Josh Gudwin, Andrew Scheps, Greg Wells, Reid Shippen, Dale Becker, NO ID and many more have also chosen PMC for their own Dolby Atmos mix rooms.

Designed to power any passive PMC speaker, this 2U-high rackmount unit is particularly well suited to use with PMC’s Ci series of slimline monitors, which are now widely used for surround and ceiling channels in Dolby Atmos professional and home cinema installations.

‘Many of our professional and home theatre customers expressed a desire for a multichannel power amplifier made to PMC audio quality standards to match our passive speaker products,’ Oliver Thomas, PMC’s Commercial Director, says. ‘This multichannel amplifier ticks all the boxes – it sounds incredible, it is very flexible, and it has a control software that is a dream to use. We are delighted to be introducing this to our immersive audio customers, whether they are building a professional Dolby Atmos music facility or installing a home cinema room.’

PMC will retail its new amplifier for £5,750 per unit, plus VAT. Mains voltage is auto switching for all countries. Online manuals can be downloaded from the PMC website.
