B&W : MT-60D (WHITE)
For uncompromising cinema sound that fits easily into your life, look no further than our flagship Mini Theatre system. The MT-60D twins M-1 speakers with the stunning power and control of a PV1D subwoofer to create immersive surround sound that will keep you gripped, right up until the final frame.
When we decided to create a powerful, compact subwoofer for home cinema, we weren’t going to contradict nature. Instead of a box, we based it on a bubble; the natural way of containing internal pressures without resorting to corners and edges. In the PV1D, power is maximised while air pressures are dispersed evenly around a rigid, continuous shell, reducing unwanted vibrations to a bare minimum.
With the added dimension of a digital platform, the PV1D can be fine-tuned and controlled with more precision than ever. Do you love the visceral deep-bass impact of special movie sound effects? Or maybe you prefer a flatter response, to compensate for a more resonant listening environment? Whatever your tastes, with a full range of EQ options at your disposal, the choice is yours.
From the inside out, the M-1 was conceived as a unified system. Its design has evolved in a totally integrated way, from the custom-made crossover to the two-piece clamshell cabinet. Now, following a complete technological overhaul, including all-new drive units designed in-house, it sounds better than ever. Dispersion has increased. Imaging is pin-point accurate. Performance is now full range.
The M-1’s versatility allows it to adapt perfectly to any home environment, no matter how awkward the space. You can put an M-1 on a bookshelf. Or mount it on a wall. Or position it on its own floor-length stand. It can swivel to a horizontal position, for when you want to use one as a centre-channel speaker. You can even take your pick of a choice of Matte Black or Matte White finishes.
The M-1’s tweeter is a highly specialised piece of equipment custom-made by the team behind some of our best-known hi-fi speakers. The tweeter is tube-loaded – a design innovation we first introduced on our ground-breaking Nautilus speaker. The tube works by soaking up unwanted resonance from the back of the tweeter, so the sound you hear from the front is as detailed and precise as possible.
The redesigned bass/mid-range driver features our Anti-Resonance Plug – an acoustic innovation first seen on our high-end PM1 loudspeaker. Constructed from polymer foam, the mushroom-shaped device soaks up resonance like a sponge while also reducing cone break-up, creating unparalled clarity and detail in the midrange.
No-one likes messy cables cluttering up their domestic space. So in the same way as a power cable enters a well-designed table lamp at its base and passes up through the stand, the M-1’s signal cable disappears into the back of the table plinth stand. From here, the signal reaches the speaker via a specially-designed, pre-wired arm support.
The world’s most musical subwoofer goes digital Retaining the balanced drive and pressure vessel concept of its predecessor, PV1D sports a fresh new design and a version of the DSP platform developed for the acclaimed DB1. Digital processing provides greater control and versatility, allowing PV1D to integrate seamlessly with a wide variety of satellite speakers, either to create truly impressive home theatre systems, or to simply extend their bass response for two-channel applications. There is power on tap to fully reproduce the most demanding special effects in movies, but PV1D retains all the musical nuances for which its predecessor was renowned.
