UK pro audio dealer SX Pro has installed PMC’s flagship QB1 XBD-A main monitors in its new, purpose built demo facility so that customers can try them in conjunction with a range of high end equipment, including a choice of three different mixing consoles.
Three times the winner of PMC’s UK Professional Product Retailer of the Year Award, SX Pro has also equipped its demo room with other PMC monitors including IB1 and IB2 main monitors, a full range of twotwo monitors and the company’s new result6 nearfield speakers.
Dale Chapman, Sales Director of SX Pro, says.” Our new demo facilities give customers the time and space to make informed decisions because they can try so many different equipment options, including PMC’s large QBB1 XBD-A main monitors. These monitors are the same as those found in Tape London’s exclusive studio and are the only pair available for demo purposes in the UK. Our demo room has been acoustically designed to reflect the high-end environments in which our customers work, and the PMC monitors can be patched through three different consoles including an SSL Matrix, a Neve Genesys and an API 1608, or directly from a converter of the customer’s choice.”
Established in 2007, SX Pro snatched victory from the jaws of defeat when 2017’s Storm Doris brought a tree crashing down onto its old headquarters, rendering the building unsafe for ongoing use. After a short spell in temporary premises the company moved to Letchworth in Hertfordshire where it finally had the space to create the larger demo facilities it had always wanted.
“The damage caused by Storm Doris was a shock, but it turned out well because we are now in a great location that is easy to get to and is much larger and better equipped,” Chapman adds. “Customers can book one to one time with our staff in the demo room and when the room is empty we use it to create video content for our own business.”
Ian Downs, PMC’s Professional Audio & CI Sales Manager, says: “SX Pro’s constant commitment to clients and to the PMC brand is second to none. We are very impressed by their new facilities and by the wide range of PMC demo stock they carry. Adding QB1 XBD-A monitors to the list means that high end users now have an excellent opportunity to hear exactly what these incredibly powerful monitors are capable of in an acoustically accurate studio setting.”
