FEATURES

    • Meticulous tracking of power response, amplitude response, phase response, and transient response for unparalleled ambience retrieval and natural tonality

 

    • Purely pistonic wavefront generation with smooth open lobing characteristics

 

    • Each driver individually tested and matched for optimum performance.

 

    • Stored energy elimination (SEE) technology produces clear stable imaging and black backgrounds even under heavy SPL demands

 

    • Entirely resistive and finite loading from 10Hz to 250KHz minimizing amplifier perturbation effects

 

    • Advanced light weight driver diaphragm materials minimize energy storage and time-domain distortion.

 

    • Each driver individually tested and matched for optimum performance.

 

    • Smooth, wide polar response for superlative imaging capabilities.

 

    • Exceptional impedance characteristic allows for ideal interface with any amplifier.

 

    • Crossover circuitry is hard-wired with surface-only conductors, eliminating deleterious sonic effects of printed-circuit boards.

 

    • Proprietary all-phase crossover topologies

 

    • Careful crossover control of all magnetic field interaction.

 

    • Proprietary magnetics technology increases energy transfer and reduces noise floor.

 

  • Constrained-mode damping system absorbs cabinet vibrations

Precision Monitor 1 is a high-efficiency floor-standing reference monitor, designed specifically for generating maximum dynamic contrast and effective sound pressure levels from a compact chassis. Ease of driveability through a non-reactive impedance load presents low powered tube or solid-state electronics with an ideal interface for generating maximum SPL per watt of power applied.

Each model in the Precision Monitor line presents exceptional spatial sound-staging, recovering the lowest level hall reverberation detail, the hallmark of true high-resolution monitors. Flat frequency response and phase linear time and transient behavior deliver an accurate rendition of all the crucial elements that go into a recording. Whether for home or studio, our Precision Monitors define the state of the art in high-energy reference transducers.

 Precision Monitor 2 is a full range reference monitor designed specifically for superlative tonal and spatial accuracy. Recovery of fine low-level detail, without exaggeration or aggressive high frequency etching, was our specific design goal. Accurate tracing of all waveform parameters within a dynamic energy field is the hallmark of PRECISION MONITOR 2, an elegant and truthful high-resolution transducer for home or studio.
Precision Monitor 3 is Power. The goal was to create the most dynamically impressive high energy capability from a transducer of nominal size, a smaller version of our award-winning SAGA.

By directly transferring the crossover topology and high-current parts of SAGA into PM3, we have achieved a standard of low frequency reproduction never before attained in a loudspeaker of this size. The impedance is absolutely flat below 200 Hz, deviating less than +/- .1 (1/10) ohm. No transducer in the world can claim such accurate and efficient utilization of amplifier energy. The result is powerful impactive sound pressure with no phase errors or energy storage. Midrange clarity is open and focused, with high frequencies fully integrated into the overall sonic structure. Three-dimensional staging is both wide and tall, with our characteristic Avalon-transparency and black background.

New Avalon PM3 Speakers now on demonstration.
 
Boy how I’ve missed my Avalon Time speakers, however all is well again in my world!
 
The new PM3’s were worth waiting for; in every respect the equal of the Time and in others even better.
 
Hereby nicknamed “The Trojans” for their ability to sneak up on you, surprise you with their sheer realism, attack, presence and tangible soundstage.
A speaker with no Achilles heal; just what we mere mortals have been waiting for.
 
The quest for hifi nirvana can take you down many roads and on many adventures but like Odysseus eventually if we are lucky and persevere we too can find our nirvana. I have found mine in the Avalon PM3.

Precision Monitor 4 is a full range reference monitor designed specifically for superlative tonal and spatial accuracy. Recovery of fine low-level detail, maximum possible resolution, transient accuracy, and exceptional dynamic contrast were our specific design goals. Accurate tracing of all waveform parameters, without exaggeration or artifact is the hallmark of the Precision Monitor 4, a transparent window into the heart of recorded music.

Each model of The PRECISION MONITOR Series will bring image specificity and spatial detail to a precise and dynamic soundstaging envelope. Frequency and phase responses follow the benchmarks set by SAGA and TESSERACT for accuracy; each model is a floor standing monitor-quality reference transducer. Each design in the PRECISION MONITOR series incorporates the latest proprietary phase linear topologies and high current capabilities developed for SAGA. Spatial detail in a panoramic presentation with micro-dynamic contrasts will be their hallmarks.

We have created an exclusive visual surface for the PRECISION MONITOR Line. Each model will be available exclusively in our Polychrome Precision surface, with options for standard-sheen or high-gloss lacquer. The Polychrome Precision surface takes on the color and lighting of the environment, making it extremely neutral and versatile for placement in any décor.
