Brooklyn, NY (June 4, 2019)—Loudspeaker manufacturer PMC has opened new demo studios in the Highland Park neighborhood of Los Angeles and Brooklyn, NY, building upon the company’s US presence, which already includes demo facilities in Nashville, TN and Irvine, CA.
PMC NYC is headed by the company’s New York sales manager Luke Smith, a musician, producer and engineer who joined PMC last year. Artist’s relations manager ‘Spider’ Ron Entwistle presides over PMC LA, which boasts a 22-channel Dolby Atmos system.
Maurice Patist, president PMC USA, says, “These are not commercial facilities, as their primary function is to privately demo the entire PMC product line. However, we will be encouraging Los Angeles and New York-based music production clients and other members of the PMC family to use them.”
“The full Dolby Atmos set up in our LA studio reflects our strategic partnership with Dolby and Universal Music Group, bringing the Atmos immersive format closer to the music production market,” he says. “The studio exists of an LCR of MB3-XBD-A monitoring, twotwoSub.2 for LFE channels and a selection of our Wafer on-wall monitors for all the surround and height channels, similar to the systems already installed at Capitol Studios.”
The New York facility is 1,000 square feet of space divided into two stereo mixing studios, one of which is equipped with PMC’s MB3 XBD-A main monitors and the other with IB1S-A monitors. In addition, a full range of PMC nearfield monitors is on hand for customers to try.
“It’s definitely time for PMC to turn the spotlight on New York and give music makers a facility that is more than just a demo room,” Smith says. “High end pro audio equipment manufacturers such as SSL, Universal Audio, Rupert Neve Designs, Focusrite, iZotope, Waves, API and DW Fearn have already expressed an interest in working with us and will also use our space for their own events. We openly encourage that – we want both of our studios to be creative hubs with a strong sense of community. PMC NYC will also carry a stock of spare parts so that we can further enhance the top-notch support we offers our clients in the US.”
PMC LA is already open; PMC NY will open its doors on June 20th 2019.
