PMC premieres new loudspeaker range

Posted on: Wednesday 15th of September 2021

PMC New range 2After five years of what the company describes as “intense development”, UK loudspeaker manufacturer PMC is set launch its new line of compact and midfield monitors. The new PMC6, PMC6-2, and PMC8-2, along with their associated subwoofers the PMC8 SUB and PMC8-2 SUB will replace the company’s existing twotwo Series, have “the same sound signature” as PMC’s main monitor products, and act as compliments to them. These main monitors include the QB1, BB6, MB3 and IB2 models, which are found in many audio facilities, including CapitolStudios in Los Angeles, as well as project studios owned by internationally acclaimed producers.

The creation of PMC’s new range has seen designers attempt to recognise and address the impact every part of the monitor has on its overall performance. With 30 years of 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 innovations PMC has incorporated are all-new drivers, DSP and Class-D amplifiers, as well as “significant improvements” to the company’s proprietary ATL bass-loading and Laminair air flow technologies.

PMC new rangePMC’s Commercial Director Oliver Thomas, who played a key part in the design of the new range, says: “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. The last 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.”

The new range of models are all designed to be elements in a scalable system that can easily grow to suit. The active subs can be seamlessly combined with the monitors to create one of PMC’s twin-cabinet XBD systems. Alternatively, they can be used as stand-alone LF monitors for sub-channels. Every model will also feature an expansion card slot for planned future signal interfacing options.

When it comes to configuration, the new line will offer 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 digital connectivity allows users to individually control each monitor.

PMC is now taking pre-orders for all models in the new range, and we’ll provide more in-depth details and a review in the near future.
