perlisten S5m monitor

the Signature S5m monitor loudspeaker brings the driver layout of the S5t tower speaker to a standmount form, making it ideal for smaller rooms and LCR sets of home theatre setups

Perlisten Signature S5m monitor speaker,
Perlisten at the little audio company,
Perlisten DPC array,

At the heart of every Perlisten loudspeakers is the DPC array - Directivity Pattern Control, provides controlled dispersion in any type of room, and benefits music and home theatre alike.

S5m monitor speaker with stand,

As with all Perlisten loudspeakers, the S5m is centred around the DPC array (read more here), comprising of three 28mm domes in a vertical array. The centre dome is a Beryllium HF unit, covering frequencies above 4.4kHz. The output from this unit is controlled on the horizontal plane to reduce dispersion to focus on the listening position, and reducing HF reflection from side walls. Vertically, its output is highly controlled, vastly reducing floor and ceiling reflections.

The flanking 28mm carbon midrange domes cover between 1.25kHz and 4.4kHz, producing a more responsive midrange that is far less coloured by what would conventionally be a larger driver.

The DPC array sits between two 7" drivers covering from 1.25kHz downwards. Both bass drivers are ported out at the rear of the cabinet.  These ports can be fully plugged, providing the performance of a sealed, acoustic suspension cabinet. This results in a more even frequency response across its range.

Used in sealed mode as a bass limited monitor, as you would most likely do in a multi-channel home theatre set up with a subwoofer, the S5m will cover 80Hz-20kHz within a very narrow +/-1.5dB deviation, and produce a peak output of 117dB.

All of this tech helps the R5m achieve a THX Ultra rating as an LCR set, but achieves THX Dominus when used as surrounds.
