PBN just can’t do anything halfway. It would have been a rather routine task to create a center channel from existing technology and design modules at PBN. It would have sounded quite acceptable. But that wasn’t good enough for Noerbaek.
He started from scratch, engineering every square inch of this remarkable speaker. The basic question was: What is a center channel supposed to do? It’s different for home theater than it is for music. In home theater the center channel’s primary duty is to reproduce the actor’s natural voice as it moves to various positions on the screen. With music, the audio track should create the impression that the listener is sitting front row center, yet it shouldn’t overpower the other speakers in the system.
It’s no easy feat to do both well in an audiophile speaker. PBN has done it. The internal engineering, baffle design and speaker aiming are some of the extraordinary accomplishments of the SPC-2. Best of all, this one speaker can perfectly round out a two-channel system by giving it an audio dimension previously unknown to most serious music aficionados.
