PMC brings its new result6 Active Reference Monitors to NAMM 2018

UK-based reference monitor manufacturer PMC will be showing its new result6 compact nearfield reference monitor NAMM 2018 on Booth 16117.

Launched in October 2017 at the AES Convention in New York, PMC’s new two-way active result6 loudspeaker delivers on every level as it 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 — all distilled into an affordable nearfield reference with the emphasis on elegant simplicity.

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 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 also block cabinet edge effects to ensure the result6's HF response remains razor-sharp and free of smearing.

"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. "Of course, as is the PMC way, a great deal of advanced design work has been involved behind the scenes. 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."

In addition to result6, PMC will also be showing its award-winning large format MB3S-XBD-A and BB6 monitors that were launched to huge critical acclaim at last year’s NAMM convention, and its ever popular twotwo series of studio monitors. The company will have a demo room on its booth so that NAMM visitors can experience the exceptional audio quality that PMC speakers delivers across the entire frequency range.

I heard them at AES this past summer. Thought they sounded great. Oddly not much hype about these. Also have heard Amphions at the last two AES conventions and thought these sounded better. But that perception could be due to a better listening environment and may not follow through in actual usage. Also, some think these are just a reissue of the Digidesign/PMC speakers from the past because of similar cosmetics. Maybe that is the reason these aren't getting much attention.

I suppose the best I could really say is that PMC makes some pretty good presentations at these shows as you might expect from a company that offers products in the stratospheric price ranges of much of the PMC line. Yet I still wonder why Amphions are hyped ad nauseam while these are virtually ignored by the GS community.

Who can figure?

The RM2 Digidesign/PMC monitor got a good review on Sound-On-Sound back in 2007; I was intrigued then. I'm sure there's a lot more to the 'result6' than a simple re-issue. The price is good for some trickle-down PMC capability.

The Digidesign by PMC monitors and the Result6s have nothing in common. Also I must say I have worked in the past with those Digis (both RM1 and 2 versions) and they were exceptional monitors, a common thing with every PMC speaker.

No. The ATL is very, very good. Usually in PMC's high-end gear so good to see some trickle-down technology in more affordable monitors.
There's a good overview of ATL technology at PMC's website (which I can't link to for some reason!)

For me ATL is the only valid bass reflex system, lets the speaker to breath a lot and be agile and transparent in the mids while being able to reach very low freqs for the woofer size.

Here for the gear
Currently demoing a pair of Results that I borrowed from the Nashville PMC House (I happened to live 5 minutes from them.) I have them sitting in between my PMC IB1S-A's and NS-10's. The Results are amazing speakers to say the least. ATL Technology changed my life (as a mixer.) Phase accuracy as well as "deeper" lows make all the difference in the world. They have a crystal clear mid range that I find better than most (if not any) speaker this size and even more specifically in this price range. I've demo'd their twotwo series, which go slightly lower and are little more even overall, maybe because they use dsp crossovers instead of the all analog Results.
As a professional mixer Ive been looking for two way speakers that give me the clarity and depth of my larger PMC's and these are the perfect pair in the price range I'm looking. Also if you're an NS10 user, they pair well with them. I'm finding that I've needed to do less mid-range work on NS10's when starting on the Results. Great overall speaker, would assume they were much more than $3k. Either way, I'm not giving these back, literally waiting for Jordan to get back to Nashville so I can swipe my card.

Thanks MPP for the post. Anyone else listen to these? In the market and these or the Two Two6 are at the top of my list.

Spent some quality time listening to these at NAMM. They had a listening room setup. Very impressive. Considering buying a pair.

How do these compare to Focal's Trio6 Be?

Demo'ed these against Focal Solos and there was no comparison! The Results had a much wider open and balanced sound. Made the Focals sound cluttered and unclear, the Focals bass also didn't come close it seemed distorted as opposed to the super smooth punchy sound of the PMC.

Gotta try these out against my Trios.

When you get the chance please share your thoughts, Id be very curious to hear how they sound to an active user of the Trio's. If you're in LA I recommend RSPE Audio in Universal City.

I've had the Result6 for a couple of weeks now and they have opened up so nicely. They are a fantastic set of studio monitors that would work well in almost any environment. No bells and whistles; just a well made studio monitor that delivers.

Great job PMC!
