PMC unveiled its brand new Result6 compact nearfield reference monitor, at this year’s AES convention in New York. The new two-way active Result6 loudspeaker combines 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.
The 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 the Result6. The LF driver was developed using a groundbreaking 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 integrated with the Advanced Transmission Line — the proprietary bass-loading system at the heart of all PMC products.
The built-in dual Class D amplifiers supply 65W and 100W of power to the HF and LF drivers respectively. Simple rear-panel trim controls give you ±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 also block cabinet edge effects to ensure the Result6’s HF response remains razor-sharp and free of smearing.
