twoway 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 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 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 DSPbased 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."
Harman Professional Solutions
recently introduced the new JBL
Intonato 24 Monitor Management
Tuning System, billed as "the
industry's
most
comprehensive
solution for easy set-up, precise
automated calibration, and complete
control of monitoring systems in
stereo, surround, and immersive
audio production rooms". Housed in
a 2U rack-mount enclosure, Intonato
24 can calibrate and control systems
of up to 24 speakers with customised

recallable routing of up to 24 sources
selected from 24 dedicated analogue,
24 digital and 256 networked audio
sources. Included software and an
optional Desktop Controller put the
system's powerful monitoring features
at your fingertips, and take control
room monitoring to the next level.
"While the approach to control room
monitoring has remained relatively
consistent over the years, audio
signal paths, production workflows,
and production spaces have evolved
tremendously," said Peter Chaikin,
Director, Recording Solutions at
Harman International. "With Intonato
24, JBL set out to create the heart of
a complete next-generation system
that takes control room monitoring to
the next level, empowering content
creators to produce consistently
superior output regardless of the
spaces where they find themselves - or
the formats they are asked to deliver."
Intonato 24 includes a calibration
microphone and innovative Automated
Speaker Calibration process that
"tunes" each speaker to compensate
for speaker placement and room
acoustics, delivering neutral response
to the mix position - even in lessthan-ideal work spaces. The result is
a finely-tuned system that takes the
guesswork out of mixing by tackling
room-related low-frequency issues
and precisely matching the level and
"time-of-flight" from each speaker to
the mix position.
Intonato 24 comes standard
with the most I/O in its class and
features flexible internal routing and
a mixer to provide unprecedented
monitoring flexibility. With the power
to manage monitoring systems of
up to 24 speakers - including up
to four subwoofers that can be
assigned as "Bass Management"
subs with selectable crossover
settings - Intonato 24 is compatible
with all monitoring formats including
stereo, 5.1, 7.1 and makes immersive
