To complement the fact series of loudspeakers, PMC have released the fact.5 (two-way) and fact.10 (three way) centre channel speakers. The fact.5 complements the fact.3 or fact.8 two-way speakers, whilst the larger fact.10 was created to work in tandem with the fact.12 speaker. The addition of these two new centre channel speakers within the fact range now enables movie and multi-channel enthusiasts to experience their favourite soundtracks in full fact precision!
To achieve the ultimate in vocal clarity and projection, both models feature a newly designed ATL (Advanced Transmission Line). PMC state "The intelligent use of damping materials and extensive cabinet bracing within the ATL eradicates unwanted colouration, resulting in an untainted vocal reproduction that is truly tangible. And, as with all PMC designs, the bass performance is uncanny for the size of cabinet, with depth, dynamic snap and high power handling perfect for all recorded material".
Both models feature precision user control of frequency response to overcome the sometimes complex issue of how to combine the differing sound signatures of room acoustics, cables and source components. In addition, the fact.10 also features a bass-boost facility when partnering with larger three-way designs or if greater bass energy is required.
Commenting on the new models, Peter Thomas, owner and chief designer says, "Since their introduction the fact series has set new standards in terms of resolution, transparency and musicality. And with the increasing number of supreme quality and higher resolution multichannel recordings that are available, we wanted to bring these benefits to our fact customers who expect to enjoy surround recordings at this standard. With the addition of the fact.5 and fact.10 centre channels they can now certainly do that." He concludes, "We are extremely proud of the results achieved and know they will change the standards for home cinema sound in the same way the fact hi-fi speakers did for stereo reproduction."
The fact centre channel speakers will commence shipping from PMC April 2016. To view the fact.5 and fact.10 centre channel speakers please click here.
