The new QB1-A monitors in Studio A at Capitol.
Los Angeles, CA (October 16, 2014)—PMC has sold its first QB1-A reference monitors. Two pairs are becoming part of Capitol Studios' ongoing refurbishment program at, with one pair destined for Studio A, the other for Studio B.
Launched last week at the AES show, the QB1-A is PMC's new high-end monitor. Designed for medium- to large-scale recording facilities, it offers over 4800 Watts of power per channel and incorporates analogue and digital inputs, PMC's Advanced Transmission Line (ATL) bass-loading technology, DSP control, and the latest generation of PMC's Class-D amplification and driver designs.
Capitol's engineers and management were part of a network of international industry professionals who provided feedback on the design of the QB1-A as it evolved. Prototype versions of the speakers have been installed in Capitol Studios for some months, with regular upgrades as the product was honed in the final stages. These early versions will shortly be replaced by the first production QB1-As from the PMC factory in the U.K.
