[PMC] Fenestria Speaker
Elegant design and advanced engineering come together to produce the ultimate musical listening experience. The top-of-the-range fact model combines new materials, innovative aerodynamic engineering, groundbreaking vibration-cancelling design, cutting-edge cabinets and drivers, PMC's patented Advanced Transmission Line (ATL™) bass-loading technology and state-of-the-art looks to create a loudspeaker which adds no sound of its own to the music it reproduces.
This is why we call it... ... the loudspeaker you’ll never hear
VOCALS YOU CAN TOUCH
The 75mm soft-dome mid-range driver covers the key frequencies in instrumental and vocal recordings, ensuring dynamic, beautifully lifelike reproduction. The drivers carefully shaped spun aluminium form was engineered to be acoustically inert, producing stable, pin-sharp imaging without unwanted reflections when teamed with the tweeter in the nest.
SUSPENDED IN SPACE
The nest’s minimal, sculpted form is decoupled from the cabinet, connecting with it minimally via four isolation mounts. This excludes vibrations that might colour the treble and mid-range, while the baffle-less design excludes reflections that degrade the imaging in traditional cabinet loudspeakers, creating the sonic impression that the drivers are suspended freely in space.
As well as acoustically damping the nest to prevent distortion in fenestria's mid-range and treble drivers, to reduce unwanted low-frequency vibration from the bass drivers and ATL, we employed an innovative design concept derived from technology used to prevent earthquake damage to tall buildings. The planar sides of the speakers move in opposition to the unwanted vibrations, cancelling them out
NO ADDED FLAVOURS OR COLOURING
Other loudspeakers produce unwanted vibrations in the drivers and cabinet that colour the sound. Just as a shaky camera cannot produce a clearly focused image, these unwanted vibrations reduce the clarity and precision of the sonic imaging. With fenestria, such unwanted resonances and unnatural colouration are engineered out of the design, leaving nothing but music.
