The shots from IBC are kind of lame since there is no real contrast between them and the wall, but the more official promo shots look quite good, IMHO! As long as you can turn off the lit-up logo... (hopefully that's just a bit of trade-show bling)
Anyway, trying to sift through the marketing jargon, these seem to be DSP driven 2 way speakers, with the usual PMC transmission line.
Ruairi, how does the DSP alter the output--is the crossover being shifted by the current material being played back? Is it listening-level dependent? Is the EQ being actually adjusted somehow to the room?
That picture is much more accurate! I have a set of each in my studio right now and they look very much like that, the Midnight Blue color is very nice indeed.
The DSP is not doing anything tricky like room correction, this goes very much against the PMC philosophy. It is basically a very high quality digital crossover followed by a pair of very high end Class D amps. The crossover point is absolutely fixed.
