PMC has upgraded its flagship BB5 Series monitor series and XB3 sub with a new version of its 15-inch radial driver.

Rear venting of the magnet now complements the cooling effects of the radial fins, while power compression effects are further ameliorated by the circulation of air throughout the core via apertures at the rear of the magnet assembly. Improved venting provides for reductions in overall distortion and greater linearity. The construction of the driver has been improved with a new alloy casting.

In other company news, Gosh! Studios in Vienna has upgraded its Studio A monitoring by installing PMC BB5 monitors and Bryston 7B monobloc amplification, which were supplied by PMC Austrian distributor AviTech.

"We heard the product in another studio and were very impressed and excited by them," said studio co-owner Stephan Kolber (pictured); Harald Sulzbacher is the other co-owner. "We subsequently tested them alongside almost all the currently available main monitoring systems in Studio A and came to the conclusion that the PMC system was the best one for our usage."

Founded in 1996, Gosh! relocated to new spacious facilities in 2001, with three production/control rooms, including Studio A, the 45-square-meter main mix room, tied to a 60-square-meter live recording room. The studio services commercial clients and provides in-house writing and production facilities for Gosh!'s own commercials and music production company. Recording media and production platforms include Studer analog multitrack, Pro Tools 24, MOTU, Digital Performer and Digidesign systems.
