PMC MB2 SE Three Way High Resolution Reference Monitors
Online & Store
While it’s hard to better a well-engineered set of active speakers, passive monitors, when designed with care and respect like PMC’s range, will always outperform inferior active designs. Aimed at customers who prefer to define their own speaker/amplifier combination, PMC’s passive speakers are just as uncompromising when it comes to quality, dynamic range and resolution as their active range, and are available in just as many variations and combinations, from two-way nearfields to multi-driver reference monitoring, and from stereo to surround.
Building on the state-of-the-art performance of PMC’s high-end three-way reference monitors (IB2, MB2, MB2 XBD & BB5), the SE range combines the finest traditions of British cabinet-making and cutting-edge acoustic research and development techniques. Music lovers can enjoy even greater levels of musicality while appreciating the aesthetic beauty of these special edition models. Meticulous attention has been applied to hone the designs to new standards, adding new internal bracing, computer-modelled driver dispersion surrounds, and custom-designed, specially tuned stands. All these elements contribute to the production of a purer musical signal, allowing the listener to come as close as possible to the original performance.
The MB is the mid-sized model in the SE range and delivers all the emotion and clarity of the IB2 with the ability to resolve even greater bass detail; it can produce low-frequency audio down to a staggering 20Hz with ease. The radically engineered Radial™ bass unit with its immense exo-skeleton offers excellent physical and thermal stability; the cone has a perfect rigid structure, permitting enormous excursions, and the exposed fins act as a heat sink, keeping the coil cool at all times.
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. The IB2’s roots lie in the professional studio realm, where it has become the reference for the world’s leading music-makers and producers, including Kraftwerk, Japan’s premier studio JVC, and Teldex of Berlin, who record for the premier classical label Deutsche Grammophon.
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.”
