UK loudspeaker manufacturer PMC has announced a new line of compact near- and midfield monitors promising to ‘redefine the listening experience for every audio professional, whether they are working in stereo or large scale immersive formats’.

PMC6, PMC6-2 and PMC8-2 Five years of development has culminated in the PMC6, PMC6-2 and PMC8-2 loudspeakers, along with their associated subwoofers the PMC8 Sub and PMC8-2 Sub. These monitors replace the company’s existing twotwo Series, having the same sound signature as PMC’s QB1, BB6, MB3 and IB2 main monitor models – found in top audio facilities such as Capitol Studios in Los Angeles, as well as internationally acclaimed producers’ project studios – and are able complement them.

The creation of the new range is the result of an holistic approach to loudspeaker design, in which the company has recognised and addressed the impact every part of the monitor has on its overall performance. Among the many innovations are all-new drivers, DSP and class-D amplifiers, as well as significant improvements to proprietary ATL bass-loading and Laminair air flow technologies.

‘From the outset, our aim was to raise the bar in terms of what could be achieved with near and midfield monitoring, and to deliver a system that would be ideal for every application, from traditional stereo to the latest immersive audio systems,’ says PMC Commercial Director Oliver Thomas, who played a key part in the design of the range.

‘The past five years have been incredibly intensive as we have looked at every element of monitor design to see how we can reduce colouration and dramatically improve resolution. We now know that what we have created will be extremely significant to all sectors of the professional audio market and we are incredibly proud of this achievement. By offering monitors in different sizes and with correspondingly differing bass extensions and maximum SPLs, we can cater for every customer and every room size without compromising PMC’s renowned sound quality.’

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 requirements. The active subs can be seamlessly combined with the monitors to create one of PMC’s 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 class-leading and highly intuitive 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 individual control over each monitor or set-up in groups for large scale immersive systems.

‘Today´s producers and engineers naturally demand the very best from their reference loudspeakers, and we have delivered exactly that with the highest resolution compact nearfield and mid-field loudspeakers currently available,’ Thomas says. ‘Feedback from field trials we have carried out with leading industry professionals in PMC’s community have been overwhelmingly positive. Whether you’re composing, recording, mixing, or mastering, our new monitors guarantee the best possible results in the shortest possible time.’

‘The launch of this new range represents a huge leap forward, both for the company and the customers we serve,’ adds PMC CEO, Jeff Willcocks. ‘We know that the level of excellence we can now deliver is unmatched and will have an enormous and positive impact on the professional audio industry.’

PMC is currently taking pre-orders for all models in the new range.
