What is Prodigy
With Prodigy, we’re bringing our performance-led design ethos to an even wider audience, building on our belief that ultra-high-resolution loudspeakers, if properly designed, can be used throughout the entire audio chain. That’s why our 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, our speakers are used in creating those immersive mixes, too!
It’s easy to see and hear that it’s closely related to our compact nearfield monitors, a reference in recording and broadcast facilities worldwide: the prodigy1 is more than capable of resolving detail that puts you in touch with the original performance – no matter the size.
The sweet, open top end and natural midrange brings you vivid vocals and instrumental timbres, with a wide, focused soundstage and nimble, cohesive presentation to draw you into the music and make you smile. And small though the speaker may be, it still contains a full-size Advanced Transmission Line and our Laminair technology, that delivers deep, fast, hard-hitting bass.
The smooth silk black finish will suit any room, with optional sculpted grilles available if required, and the prodigy1 has been designed to match well with everything from modest amplification to high-end, high-power systems.
The prodigy1 offers exceptional clarity while taking up minimal space and can be used on a stand or furniture. Good quality high-mass stands are the solution to realise their optimum performance as they will position them at the ideal height and provide improved stability.
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. Our Laminair airflow technology further enhances ATL and improves definition, timing and eradicates unwanted air noise.
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.
At PMC, music is an obsession: getting as close as possible to what’s being played and recorded has always been our passion. Our 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.
