New York, NY (October 19, 2017)—At the AES Convention in New York, PMC introduced its new result6 compact nearfield reference monitor.
The result6 loudspeaker sports a two-way design, with a 27mm soft-dome tweeter with dispersion grille and a mid/bass unit composed of a doped natural fiber, both custom-designed for the result6. A laser-based measurement system was used in the development of the LF driver, measuring the electromechanical performance of the driver.
Built-in dual amplifiers supply 65W and 100W of power to the HF and LF drivers respectively. An analog crossover, designed specifically for the result6 using circuit-modelling techniques, is intended to keep both drivers working at peak efficiency, while non-invasive limiting is said to protect the LF and HF units from damage without adversely affecting their sound. Rear-panel trim controls allow users ±10 dB of amplifier output level adjustment as needed.
A distinctive aspect of the result6's physical design is its finned HF driver surround. The D-Fins, as PMC call the HF diffraction fins, are said to widen the loudspeaker’s sweet spot to provide off-axis response over a larger area, and also block cabinet edge effects.
Presented as the company’s ‘entry-level’ offering, the monitors are also its first sub-$3,000/pair product, though during a press discussion at the Convention, it was noted that the result6 was developed and is manufactured by the same staff in London that work on all PMC monitoring systems. The result6 is currently shipping.
