PMC, the UK-based manufacturer of professional monitor and audiophile speaker systems, will be presenting Dolby Atmos music and movies at the Bristol Hi-Fi Show 2019.
The show will see the UK debut of the Bryston SP4 processor and its multi-award winning twenty5 series loudspeakers, and the company will also be showing off its Capitol Studio C Atmos4two-channel prowess in conjunction with the cor amplifier.
This follows the news that PMC will be partnering with Dolby and Universal Music at the NAMM 2019 professional music show later this month.
As the speakers of choice for Universal Music’s Dolby Atmos mixing suite at the world-famous Capitol Studios in LA, USA, PMC is well placed to bring the authentic Atmos experience to the Bristol Show visitors. The What Hi-Fi? reference surround speaker system, comprising twenty5.23s for the front and surround left and right channels and twenty5.C centre channel, will be expanded to include additional twenty5.23s for the rear surrounds and four of PMC’s custom installation wafer series for the height channels. Subwoofer duties in this full-scale Atmos system will be handled by two twenty5.subs.
The new Bryston SP4 is a 16-channel surround processor that provides the ultimate in home cinema experiences. Its Dolby Atmos, Auro-3D and DTS:X TM capabilities sit alongside conventional surround formats, providing maximum flexibility in set up and a truly immersive cinematic experience.
Much of the material for the Atmos presentations, running until 3pm daily, will come from Universal Music’s catalogue of new and remixed Atmos Music titles plus some well-known movies, which were originally scored, mixed or recorded using PMC professional monitor speakers.
After 3pm each day, PMC will switch to two-channel demonstrations using the twenty5 series and the company’s award-winning cor integrated amplifier.
The twenty5 series features a multitude of innovations, including a key development achieved as a result of the research into aerodynamics that was originally conducted for PMC’s flagship studio monitors, the QB1. In keeping with all PMC products, the foundation of the twenty5 series is Advanced Transmission Line (ATL) bass loading, which has been radically improved and enhanced with the new aerodynamically designed Laminair vent technology.
Designed and built by PMC in the UK, the cor integrated is an amplifier that brings PMC’s holistic design philosophy to high-end electronics, for pure analogue music reproduction. It adds no sonic character of its own to the music, by following exactly the same design ethos for high resolution playback as used in the creation of all PMC loudspeakers, namely musicality, transparency and neutrality, where nothing is added and nothing is taken away.
Providing the source material for the cor and twenty5 series demonstrations will be the Bryston BDP3 digital player and BDA3 digital to analogue converter.
The Bristol HiFi Show 2019 takes place on Friday 22 to Sunday 24 February.
