PMC Makes A Legend Legendary With The Twenty5i Series
The six strong twenty5i range consists of four two-way designs: the compact twenty5.21i, with its 130mm bass driver, the slightly larger twenty5.22i with a 165mm driver and the corresponding floor-standers, the twenty5.23i and twenty5.24i. The range is completed with the three-way twenty5.26i and a dedicated centre channel.
The speakers benefit from the company’s extensive recent research into improving high-frequency definition, crossover design and identifying and reducing unwanted vibration, which can colour the sound, making it less realistic and causing blurred imaging. The twenty5i series are not only technically superior, they are audibly superior compared to their predecessors.
The twenty5i series features a new high-frequency drive unit which is a 19mm SONOMEX™ soft-dome design, derived from PMC’s premium fact speaker range. Re-engineering has enabled this unit to work down to a lower frequency and widen the optimum listening position, to enable the listeners to enjoy a consistent, ultra-detailed sound with razor-sharp imaging throughout the room. Maintaining the accurate and smooth response across the drive units are the sophisticated crossovers mounted on military-grade fibre-glass boards. Thick, pure copper tracks are used to connect the hand-selected components to optimise signal delivery and ensure that the ideal frequency range is precisely routed to the correct driver. New for the twenty5i series is a lowering of the crossover point in the two-way models, allowing the LF driver to focus more efficiently on its core frequency range.
For added midrange accuracy, the top of the range three-way twenty5.26i features a third driver dedicated to the mid frequencies, where the critical information is to be found. This 50mm soft dome midrange is developed from the drivers found in the company’s world-respected monitors and brings the clarity of studio sound right into the home of the audiophile and music lover.
In keeping with all PMC products, the foundation of the twenty5i series is the Advanced Transmission Line bass loading. The ATL™ features the aerodynamically designed Laminair vent, originally developed for PMC’s flagship QB1studio monitors - the reference at Capitol Studios, LA – and subsequently used in the twenty5 series. The new twenty5i series looks as elegant as it sounds, in a choice of diamond black and a variety of silk finishes, including white and two different natural timbers, oak and walnut, each of which is hand-selected from sustainable sources.
