PMC cor


SKU: PMC cor Categories: , Tags: ,


The cor integrated is an amplifier that adds no sonic character of its own to the music.

It follows exactly the same design ethos for high resolution playback as used in the creation of all PMC’s loudspeakers, namely musicality, transparency and neutrality, where nothing is added and nothing is taken away.

The role of the amplifier, like the company’s speakers, is to reproduce the music exactly as it is meant to be heard.

Designed and hand-built by PMC in the UK, the cor – the dictionary definition of which is: (anatomy) heart; (figuratively) soul, mind – is an integrated amplifier that works entirely in the analogue domain.

Every element of the cor has been developed with purity of sound at the top of the criteria list.

The four unbalanced RCA analogue inputs, are joined by one pair of balanced XLR inputs, and a set of direct inputs that connect straight to a power amplifier.

The cor integrated does not feature any digital inputs and is unashamedly an analogue amplifier for the purist.

All the components were specified without compromise after extensive listening tests, including the black PCBs and the volume control, which, together with the tone and balance faders, are motorised using the finest technology from professional mixing consoles, and are remote controllable.

This provides flexibility to achieve the perfect sound on every track, without moving from your armchair.

PMC History Founded in 1991 by Peter Thomas of the BBC and Adrian Loader of FWO Bauch. The combination of knowledge and a life-long passion for music led to the production of PMC’s first product, the BB5-A, an active main studio monitor. This design was snapped up by the BBC Maida Vale and Metropolis Mastering and remains the world’s reference, used by Prince, Stevie Wonder’s Wonderland Studio, Hospital HDTV Broadcast London and for renowned classical labels such as Decca and Harmonia Mundi. Many of today’s movie themes have been crafted using PMC, from such eminent composers as Henry Jackman, Thomas Newman, Tyler Bates and John Debney. PMC are one of the very few companies who have been awarded an Emmy® for their contribution to recording excellence. With film, it would be easier to list the blockbuster movies which did not use PMC during the process of music production and post! But titles include: Titanic, Mission Impossible, Captain Phillips, Pearl Harbor, Game of Thrones – TV, Iron Man 1& 2, Skyfall, Spiderman 1,2,3 and Pirates of the Caribbean and many many more. PMC reigns supreme throughout the leading mastering houses, broadcasters and much of the professional world. They believe a good loudspeaker should be able to relay the purest intentions of the artist without colouration – The ideal solution for both studio & home
