PMC is introducing the SE range of loudspeakers, building on the high performance levels of the critically acclaimed high-end three way models and combined with the finest traditions of British cabinet making. Music lovers will be able to enjoy greater levels of musicality and the aesthetic beauty of these special edition models.
Featuring the large three-way models, the IB2, MB2 and BB5, the SE concept combines PMC’s uncompromising build quality with the luxurious hand selected Rose and Rich Macassar veneers. Internally, the cabinets have been redesigned with additional bracing to generate a lower cabinet resonance for further reduced noise and a purer musical signal. The SE series possesses improved clarity in the midrange and better handling of transients in the fast attacking bass notes.This is further enhanced through the use of an innovative profiled dispersion flange, hewn from a solid aluminium billet, for the renowned PMC 75 midrange driver.
Special attention has also been given to the detailing on the terminal panel and the new tactile Nextel texture provides a luxurious finish on the drive units. Custom designed stands, finished in a matching veneer and fitted with large spun precision spikes, complete the aesthetic and provide a firm foundation for the speakers to work to their optimum performance.
Reflecting the company’s pedigree, the sound quality is second to none and encompasses all the attributes of a manufacturer at the very pinnacle of professional studio monitoring. Professional versions of the SE models can be found in studios like Teldex and Emil Berliner, which produce some of the world’s greatest classical recordings for labels like Deutsche Grammophon, DECCA, Philips and Harmonia Mundi.
Peter Thomas says of the new models, Our i series has been a fantastic success all across the world, building upon our studio heritage to bring accurate music reproduction to music lovers in the home. Now, with the SE editions, we have improved the performance of these models even further so that the most discerning of audiophiles can enter right into the heart of their music and hear it sounding just like it did in the studio. He continues, And with the beautiful new veneers we have chosen, the speakers look every bit as stunning as they sound.
PMC was founded in the belief that there were many ways in which loudspeaker design could be improved – and better products aren’t made by following the crowd. Off-the-shelf drivers, cabinets, and crossovers are commonplace in today’s mass-produced world, but our reference monitors demand innovative, non-standard attention to detail to produce the low-distortion, high-resolution designs which have made our reputation.
