The BB5 SE is the flagship of the new SE series of loudspeakers which also includes the other large three-way models, the IB2 and MB2, and combines PMC’s renowned build quality with Rose and Macassar veneers to ensure the loudspeakers will not look out of place in any domestic setting. Internally, the cabinets have been redesigned to generate a lower cabinet resonance for further “reduced cabinet talk, a purer musical signal and better handling of bass transients”. “The SE series possesses improved clarity in the midrange, through the use of an innovative profiled dispersion flange for the renowned PMC 75 midrange driver; which, in the case of the BB5 SE, is handed to eradicate baffle diffraction to further improve the imaging”.
“Special attention has also been given to the detailing on the terminal panel and the new tactile Nextel™ texture provides a luxurious finish on the drive units. Custom designed stands, in a matching veneer and fitted with large spun precision spikes, complete the aesthetic and provide a firm foundation for the speakers”.
Peter Thomas says of the new models, “Our i series has been a fantastic success all across the world, building upon our studio heritage to bring accurate music reproduction to music lovers in the home. Now, with the SE editions, we have improved the performance of these models even further so that the most discerning of audiophiles can enter right into the heart of their music and hear it sounding just like it did in the studio.” He continues, “And with the beautiful new veneers we have chosen, the speakers look every bit as stunning as they sound.”
