Digi's digital expertise married with PMC's monitoring technology results in a world-class studio monitor.

The Digidesign RM1 is a compact professional, bi-amplified, near-field monitor that offers incredible sound accuracy. The RM1 monitor features a 5.5-inch low frequency driver, boasts performance comparable to much larger systems, and is ideal for project studios, editing suites, home studios, and mobile production vehicles.

Co-developed with PMC (the Professional Monitor Company), the Digidesign Reference Monitor Series unites Digidesign's deep expertise in digital audio with PMC's legacy of fine, handcrafted, cutting-edge design and meticulous manufacturing. Together, Digidesign and PMC have created specially engineered monitors that employ PMC's groundbreaking Advanced Transmission Line (ATLTM) technology and deliver unrivaled tonal accuracy, low distortion, accurate bass response, stunning clarity, and incredible dynamic range.

Because of ATL technology, the Digidesign RM1 can deliver higher volumes and lower bass extension than other speakers of similar sizes--even if identical or larger drivers are used. The frequency response also remains consistent regardless of how high or low listeners adjust the volume, meaning they won't need to crank the monitors to achieve maximum bass response. The RM1 monitor speaker is also designed for a wide sound dispersion, so listeners will get accurate frequency response even when they're listening in an off-axis position.

About Digidesign and PMC
It's generally accepted that monitors or one of, if not the most important part of the recording signal chain. So naturally, it stands to reason that when you make the industry standard DAW platform, you'd want to make monitors that will live up to, and possibly exceed that reputation. That's why Digidesign partnered with PMC, a top British manufacturer of audiophile and studio monitors. Thanks to proprietary technology and exacting attention to detail and craftsmanship, PMC counts among their clients luminaries such as AVID, Atlantic Records, Capital Records, PolyGram records, Brian May, Peter Gabriel, Paramount Mastering, LucasFilm, Ray Charles, Robbie Robertson, Robert Fripp, Solid State Logic, Sony Mastering, Seal, Stevie Wonder, Warner Music Mastering, and The Village Recorders in Los Angeles, to name a few. A testimony to the accuracy and stereo imaging of PMC monitors is the fact that so many mastering studios use them, and in mastering, the game is won or lost in the monitors. Albums mastered on PMCs include Coldplay's In My Place, Peter Gabriel's multi platinum So (remastered), Led Zeppelin's Led Zeppelin Live, David Bowie's Low (remastered), Red Hot Chili Peppers By The Way, Portishead's Dummy, The Clash London Calling and more. Digidesign's new RM series studio monitors brings this technology to your studio.
