We are extremely proud to announce that STL Audio is now the exclusive NZ dealer for PMC Pro Audio monitors. This is the first time that the PMC Pro Audio Division has been officially available in NZ.
PMC have one of the most reputable names in pro audio and post production monitoring, it's a fact! They have been used on hundreds of hit records and movies that you've already heard, so do your studio favour and call/email us to demo a PMC model now!
Founded in 1991 by Peter Thomas of the BBC and Adrian Loader of FWO Bauch. The combination of knowledge and a life-long passion for music led to the production of PMC’s first product, the BB5-A, an active main studio monitor. This design was snapped up by the BBC Maida Vale and Metropolis Mastering and remains the world’s reference, used by Prince, Stevie Wonder’s Wonderland Studio, Hospital HDTV Broadcast London and for renowned classical labels such as Decca and Harmonia Mundi. Many of today’s movie themes have been crafted using PMC, from such eminent composers as Henry Jackman, Thomas Newman, Tyler Bates and John Debney.
PMC are one of the very few companies who have been awarded an Emmy® for their contribution to recording excellence. With film, it would be easier to list the blockbuster movies which did not use PMC during the process of music production and post! But titles include: Titanic, Mission Impossible, Captain Phillips, Pearl Harbor, Game of Thrones – TV, Iron Man 1& 2, Skyfall, Spiderman 1,2,3 and Pirates of the Caribbean and many many more.
PMC reigns supreme throughout the leading mastering houses, broadcasters and much of the professional world.
PMC Loudspeakers - result6 Active Studio Monitors - Pair
The result6 provides an introduction to PMC and the huge benefits of ATL™ technology, the proprietary bass-loading system at the heart of all our designs. This active two-way reference monitor offers all the attributes for which PMC is world-renowned: high resolution and detail, accurate, extended bass, consistent tonal balance at all levels, and wide dispersionand sweet spot. With an emphasis on elegant simplicity, this is a compact nearfield that allows you to work faster and more confidently.
There are no overly complex DSP-based user options or room profiles; instead, the result6 achieves its characteristically neutral, dependable PMC reference sound solely on the strength of its engineering. Honed to the fundamentals of our design philosophy, it’s devoted to getting you the best sounding results in the shortest possible time.
The distinctive, finned HF driver surround on the result6 are known as D-Fins and they deliver major sonic benefits by widening the stereo sweet spot . The result is an excellent off axis response over a wider area. The D-Fins also eradicate the cabinet edge effects, ensuring high-frequency sound remains razor-sharp and unsmeared.
You can change your listening position as you work without adversely affecting what you hear, and that the frequency response remains flat and natural-sounding.
With twin low-distortion, (HF 65W, LF 100W) amps, ATL™ bass loading and a plethora major innovations the result6 lets you achieve exactly what you need, quicker.
PMC result6 Key Features:
- D-Fins for superior HF dispersion giving you an extra-wide stereo sweet spot.
- PMC Patented ATL (Advanced Transmission Lint) technology provides exceptional LF extension in a small footprint, with no coloration
- Laser measurement ensures optimal performance by rapidly and repeatedly scanning the surface of the drive unit during operation, measuring every micro-movement with phenomenal accuracy
- High-power amplification: HF 65W, LF 100W
- Cabinet Decoupling Bands prevent the result6 from slipping, and also decouple it acoustically, preventing unwanted vibrations from coloring your sound.
- Anchor Points allowing the speakers to be wall mounted and precisely positioned.
D-Fins create a bigger, more detailed stereo image
PMC engineered the distinctive, finned HF driver surround — known on the result6 as the D-Fins — to resolve both of these issues, delivering major sonic benefits. The design widens the stereo sweet spot (which is already generous, in keeping with other PMC designs). The result is an excellent off-axis response over a wider area. The D-Fins also eradicate the cabinet edge effects, ensuring high-frequency sound remains razor-sharp and unsmeared. This means that you have greater freedom to change your position as you work without adversely affecting what you hear, and that the frequency response of the speakers is flat and natural-sounding.
ATL provides sonically superior bass
PMC’s unique ATL (Advanced Transmission Line) places the bass driver near one end of a long tunnel (the Advanced Transmission Line), which is heavily damped with acoustic material carefully specified to absorb the upper bass and higher frequencies radiating from the rear of the bass driver. The lowest frequencies are allowed to pass down the line and emerge from the front vent in the same polarity as the bass unit’s output, so that the vent acts like a second LF driver
ATL bass-loading technology offers exceptional LF extension with no colouration, identical tonal balance at all levels, and higher SPLs without compression or listener fatigue.
Laser Measurement — for the ultimate precision
The result6 is the first PMC product to benefit from their groundbreaking laser-based measurement system. This performs extremely accurate assessments of the drivers’ performance by rapidly and repeatedly scanning the surface of the drive unit during operation, measuring every micro-movement with phenomenal accuracy.
In PMC's two-stage driver refinement process, the design of the bass unit is first optimized following a series of laser measurements conducted in free space. At the second stage, the driver is fitted into the loudspeaker cabinet and ATL. The laser measurement system is then used again, this time on the complete loudspeaker, and the drivers, cabinet and ATL are honed in situ, the process being repeated until their optimum performance is attained. In particular, the ATL and bass driver are tuned so that the driver produces the maximum possible output for the minimum possible excursion, which eradicates distortion and colouration.
