Sept 20, 2019
First two models unveiled last week in Denver, four more to follow in early 2020
Not everyone can afford a bespoke custom installation for their hi-fi or home cinema system, but for those who can British speaker specialist PMC has five new products in the pipeline. Making their debut at CEDIA Expo in the US this week are the PMC ci140 and ci140sub, with four additional models – the ci30, ci45, ci90slim and ci65 – following in the first quarter of 2020. The four smaller models in the range are two-way designs, the flagship ci140 is a three-way design with four bass drivers.
The ci Series incorporates PMC's proprietary technologies and audio quality from its award-winning audiophile speakers and studio monitors. All are designed with a shallow depth for wall mounting and all models, apart from the ci140 and ci140sub, are also designed to be used in-wall. Drive units used in the ci models include the LT woofer and the longer throw and higher power handling version, the LTx, with their 13cm (5.25in) natural fibre cones, a 5cm (2in) dome midrange and a 27mm (1.1in) dome tweeter. The cabinets all feature PMC’s Advance Transmission Line (ATL) bass loading technology and Laminair vents, plus a hand-built, precision crossover.
The Cinénova Clarté on-wall and in-wall LCR are Earthquake’s newest addition to the infamous Cinénova family of high fidelity products. The Clarté was designed to be mounted vertically or horizontally allowing it to be positioned for left, right, and center channels. This offers plenty of flexibility whether you are installing them for new or pre-existing home audio setups.
Both the on-wall and in-wall Clarté speakers feature a combination of three 5.25" carbon fiber cone woofers for distortion-free bass and four 2" ultra-fast ribbon tweeters for remarkable sound quality with pinpoint accuracy. With Earthquake’s Cinénova Clarté LCR, you will hear more details in music and movies with elegant sound reproduction and tonal balance.
