Get to the core of PMC at High End 2017…

PMC, global leader in the manufacture of audiophile and professional loudspeakers, will be giving show visitors the chance to get right to the core of its design philosophy with products from its SE range and twenty5 series on demonstration, additions to its UK distributed AVM range, plus a major new product introduction.

In Atrium 4.1 room F123, PMC will be demonstrating the mighty MB2 XBD SE, the domestic version of its well-respected studio monitoring system the MB2 XBD Active, used by recording professionals across the world.  With its twin 12” (300mm) radial bass drivers, 24dB crossover and the renowned PMC 75 midrange driver, the MB2 brings the realism, dynamics and authenticity of the studio into the home. The SE series has recently undergone a transformation with new veneers that complement the latest trends in interior decoration and customer requirements. The worlds most discerning audiophiles can now specify SE models, in active or passive guise, in Vintage Walnut, Amarone, Natural Oak and Black Ash veneer. The source and amplification will be provided by AVM and Bryston.

On static display the flagship BB5 SE and slightly smaller sibling, the IB2 SE, will show off the rest of the SE range.

Over in Atrium 3.1, room C113, PMC and AVM have joined forces to present the twenty5 series and AVM30 range; two product groups introduced to celebrate the two companies’ and 25th and 30th anniversaries respectively.

The five strong, award-winning, PMC twenty5 series, used to partner the AVM30, features a multitude of innovations, including a key development achieved as a result of research into aerodynamics originally conducted for PMC’s flagship studio monitors, the QB1 – the reference at the world famous Capitol Studios, LA.  In keeping with all PMC products, the foundation of the twenty5 series is Advanced Transmission Line bass loading, which has been radically improved and enhanced with the new Laminair vent technology. As with motor racing, from where Oliver Thomas, PMC’s head of design, gained his knowledge of aerodynamics, the aim is to reduce turbulence and drag, which reduces resistance and increases efficiency. The result is the Laminair aerodynamic vent, which creates a smooth laminar airflow as it exits the line. The audible effects are obvious with a faster, higher definition bass with accurate timing and dynamics, without unwanted air noise.

The range comprises two stand mount speakers, the two-way twenty5.21 and twenty5.22 and three floor-standing models: the What Hi-Fi? “Best Floorstander £2000+” award winning twenty5.23, the twenty5.24 (both two-way) and the three-way twenty5.26, which features the proven PMC 50mm soft dome midrange. The 27mm tweeter is common to all models, with the 21 and 23 sharing the 5”/140mm long-throw g-weave bass driver, with a 6 ½”/170mm variant used in the 22 and 24, and a 7”/177mm version in the range-topping twenty5.26.

Further highlighting the core design methodology of PMC will be one of the company’s most significant ever product releases. Without doubt raising some surprised reactions, the product to be unveiled at High End is the fulfilment of a long held desire of PMC’s founder and owner, Peter Thomas. Atrium 4.1 room F123, alongside the SE range, is the venue for this not-to-be-missed reveal.
