Intro:
The original idea for this thread was for me to keep track of newly released speakers, and keep this information in a table form, on the first post.
But I've hit the limit of the # of characters in a given post, so I've stopped.

Now, members are contributing to my original idea, by posting new speakers as they are announced.

I don’t think the PMC Prodigy range are studio monitors. They are marketed through their hifi range, sold at hifi stores and not sold at studio monitor stores.

They are just speakers made by a company that also makes studio monitors no?

i will never understand their very high prices compared to genelec and neumann, they are like ATC

ATC home models measure also usually better then PMC ones so I'd rather have them instead.

The newest PMC actives (6, 6-2, 8-2) are... fine, I guess? Nothing particularly special, but not bad. The mid dome is quite something, apparently it can cross around 400 as a 2 incher and keep up with 2 8" woofers okay.

They do have the usual PMC "it's too bloody bright" syndrome - at least the 6-2 and 8-2 do, the 6 seems to be a bit flatter on-axis - but at least there's EQ on board that can shelve the highs down lol.

update:

Sound On Sound did some rudimentary measurements of the 6, it's... not terrible on axis. Vertical off axis has dips as you'd expect, and there's a TL interference dip around 300hz. Overall, not bad. I've certainly seen worse.

I was talking about the passive/home PMC and ATC loudspeakers as for the active ones I haven't really seen lately any measurements.
 
Imo, if nothing else muting their logo is an improvement. Their logo always just seemed "wrong" to me.

the active ATCs measure roughly equivalently to the passives, the active PMCs are mostly also a trainwreck.
 
Since this is now about pre-september 2023 releases :
