PMC’s new result6 compact nearfield reference monitors will be on show at this year’s Frankfurt Musikmesse (Hall 4.1, booth C21), proving once again that elegance, simplicity and exceptional audio quality doesn’t have to come with a large price tag.
Launched last October 2017, these two-way active loudspeakers deliver on every level as they combine all the attributes for which the company’s pro reference monitors are internationally renowned. These include high resolution and detail, accurate and extended bass, consistent tonal balance on all levels and wide dispersion and sweet spot – all at a very affordable price point.
"The result6 provides the perfect introduction to the benefits of ATL™ technology for audio professionals new to our range," explains Oliver Thomas, PMC's Head of Design. "There are no overly complex DSP-based user options or room profiles; instead, the result6 achieves its characteristically neutral, dependable reference sound solely on the strength of its meticulous engineering. From the user's perspective, you can plug it in and immediately trust what you hear, allowing you to create the best-sounding results in the shortest possible time."
result6’s two-way design features a 27mm soft-dome tweeter with dispersion grille and a mid/bass unit composed of a doped natural fibre, both custom-designed for this product. The LF driver was developed using a ground-breaking laser-based measurement system, recently introduced into the design process at PMC, which determines the electromechanical performance of the driver with extreme accuracy and allows the bass driver to be perfectly integrated with the Advanced Transmission Line™ — the proprietary bass-loading system at the heart of all PMC products.
The built-in dual amplifiers supply 65W and 100W of power to the HF and LF drivers respectively. Extremely efficient, low-distortion and high-damping-factor Class-D designs, they provide plenty of headroom and ensure the result6 has a generous dynamic response given its compact dimensions. The elegant, pure analogue crossover, which was also designed specifically for the result6 using circuit-modelling techniques, keeps both drivers working at peak efficiency, while non-invasive limiting protects the LF and HF units from damage without adversely affecting their sound. Finally, simple rear-panel trim controls allow users ±10dB of amplifier output level adjustment to suit the precise requirements of the chosen listening environment.
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, deliver two significant sonic benefits: they widen the loudspeaker’s already generous sweet spot to give excellent off-axis response over a larger area, and block cabinet edge effects to ensure the result6's HF response remains razor-sharp and free of smearing.
At Messe, PMC is showing result6 in a 5.1 configuration. Also on show will be PMC’s award-winning large format MB3-XBD-Active monitors that have garnered high praise around the world since their launch in 2017, and the company’s ever popular twotwo series of studio monitors.
