With Prodigy, PMC is bringing its performance-led design ethos to an even wider audience, building on its belief that ultra-high-resolution loudspeakers, if properly designed, can be used throughout the entire audio chain. That’s why its designs are employed at every stage of music-making, from composers’ music rooms to recording studios, all the way through to the home – preserving the essence of the original performance and delivering it directly to the listener.
And Prodigy is a classic example of how we think about speakers. Designed and built in-house here in Britain, it comprises two models: the compact Prodigy1 standmount and the floorstanding Prodigy5. Both deliver staggering clarity and depth of bass seemingly beyond their size, thanks to our ATL technology – just one of the innovative technologies packed into these speakers, as it is in all PMC designs.
Even tempered and easy to drive, they’ll match with high-quality electronics and, with their consistent characteristics and tonal balance, you can also easily mix and match any PMC speakers to create immersive audio systems for the latest surround music formats.
And yes, its speakers are used in creating those immersive mixes, too!
The prodigy5 floorstander is compact but powerful, taking up no more space than bookshelf speakers on stands thanks to a small footprint suited to any style of room – yet it can fill even larger spaces with weighty, crisply defined music.
This is a phenomenal communicator, packed with verve and fun, combining a sweet, open treble with wide dispersion to provide a vast listening ‘sweet-spot’ with excellent focus.
It also delivers transparent, natural vocals and instrumental sound, and an untainted, solid bottom end.
Thanks to an extended Advanced Transmission Line with twin Laminair vents for smoother airflow, the prodigy5 lives up to its name with prodigious bass power. That is combined with tight, clean control for a really dynamic, thrilling presentation of the true weight of the music, almost regardless of where you place the speakers in the room.
Designed to reveal all the quality of your favoured electronics, the slender prodigy5 will blend into any space, with the option of grilles available for those who like their speakers even more discreet.
One of the keys to our legendary natural, uncoloured sound is our Advanced Transmission Line (ATL) bass-loading. ATL uses energy generated by the bass unit in a much more intelligent and efficient way than speaker designs based on ported or sealed boxes. The Laminair airflow technology further enhances ATL and improves definition, timing and eradicates unwanted air noise.
At home in the studio
This quest for sonic transparency and neutrality has always been our driving force, using advanced engineering to reproduce music as vividly and faithfully as possible. After all, it’s in our name – the Professional Monitor Company – and our designs are used in studios worldwide to create the sound you can also enjoy on our speakers in your home.
From studio to home
At PMC, music is an obsession: getting as close as possible to what’s being played and recorded has always been our passion. Its aim is not to impose an additional character on the music, rather to create a clear window for the artist’s vision, forming a true emotional connection between the music and the listener at home.
