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.
From PMC about the twotwo. range:
PMC the producer of true reference loudspeaker monitors – the all-new twotwo series combines PMC’s world-class design pedigree with sophisticated digital signal processing and active amplification to create a range of stunningly accurate, versatile, and compact two-way reference grade monitors.
The range comprises of three models – the twotwo.5, twotwo.6 and twotwo.8 – all designed and built in Britain using state-of-the-art technologies and components. The result is unrivalled level of clarity, transparency and accuracy for professional compact monitors. twotwo series models all share the same core design and features – the model number refers only to the approximate size (in inches) of the bass driver, with larger numbers denoting increasing cabinet volume, greater bass extension and higher SPL capabilities.
PMC’s attention to detail is evident throughout the design of twotwo series, but a feature new to the compact range is their ability to operate in either the vertical or horizontal orientations without compromising stereo imaging or tonal accuracy. This makes them ideally suited for nearfield monitoring of music and speech in situations where space is at a premium, such as in outside broadcast vehicles, small radio on-air studios and television sound control galleries, project music studios, video editing and post-production suites and for A&R evaluations.
- True compact reference monitors with ATL™ bass loading technology
- Class leading connectivity – both analogue & digital up to 192kHz
- Cutting edge, audiophile, high efficiency dual Class-D amplification
- Powerful DSP engine controlling driver response, crossover & EQ
- Versatile positioning – perfect in both vertical & horizontal orientation
- Precision drivers designed and built by PMC for dynamics & neutrality
Size can be decidedly deceptive. Although the smallest member of the twotwo family, this ultra-compact nearfield model features the same technology as its larger siblings allowing it to perform way beyond expectation. Astonishing resolution and neutrality is provided by sophisticated DSP, dual power amplifiers, PMC’s new 27mm tweeter and a 140mm (5.5”) bass unit, all housed within a carefully specified ATL™ labyrinth cabinet. This delivers class-leading depth of bass for the cabinet size, while retaining dynamics and musicality. The twotwo.5 is a dependable, high-resolution monitor, which is ideal for situations where space is at a premium but quality must not be compromised.
PMC Loudspeakers twotwo.6 Active Studio Monitors - Pair
The PMC Loudspeakers twotwo.6 mid-size, nearfield reference monitor combines the same design quality and sophisticated digital signal processing as the smaller twotwo.5 monitor.
A larger Advanced Transmission Line labyrinth cabinet and 170mm (6.5”) bass driver gives the twotwo.6 a more extensive bass performance and higher SPLs.
Just like the rest of the twotwo range, the twotwo.6 sounds great in both vertical and horizontal orientation, without ever compromising on dynamics or frequency response. PMC’s class-leading connectivity means you can quickly and easily plug in any audio ¬– analog or digital (up to 192kHz) – and you’re ready to go: the onboard sample rate or A/D conversion will take care of the rest. No acoustic treatment in your room? No problem. The twotwo’s powerful DSP engine will also take care of driver response, EQ and crossover leaving you to stay focused on the music.
The twotwo.6 shares the same high-quality transparency and neutral balance as the rest of the range, and is an ideal monitor for use in medium-sized rooms where more power and dynamics are required.
