Perlisten Audio has announced the S5t tower speaker, a slightly smaller version of the company’s flagship S7t, and the S5c center channel speaker.
S5t Tower Speaker
Like its larger sibling, the S5t (SRP: $6995/each in piano black; $7995/each in a custom finish) is a THX Certified Dominus speaker that serves as a missing link between large home AV speakers and full-size models created for leading movie theaters across the globe.
The three-way S5t features Perlisten Audio’s proprietary Directivity Pattern Control (DPC) waveguide, which is centered by three 28mm “beamforming” tweeter and midranges to accurately control vertical and horizontal dispersion. A beryllium tweeter with expanded bandwidth to 40 kHz and a rear absorption chamber reduce internal reflections to the bare minimum. The company’s S Series models all share same DPC array, benefitting from a timbre matching technique utilizing beryllium and advanced carbon fiber.
Perlisten Audio’s S5t is specifically designed to meet the demands of large-scale listening rooms. Three 28mm beryllium drivers and two 28mm TeXtreme drivers are complemented by two 180mm TeXtreme woofers, featuring carbon fiber cones that are up to 30 percent lighter than standard carbon fiber while increasing the strength through the stacking of multiple layers.
The S5t achieves the goal of total harmonic distortion (THD) rated below .5% at 90 dB listening levels, and distortion limits at 114.3 dB SPL.
Dominus is the newest and the largest performance class of THX Certification, meant to bridge the gap between large home theater speakers and those used in commercial movie theaters and exhibits. Home theater owners with rooms up to 184 cubic meters of space and up to a 6-meter viewing distance (or up to 6500 cubic feet and up to 20 feet, respectively) can fill their listening rooms with the superior audio quality they expect from THX Certified products.
S5c Center Channel Monitor
As a perfectly matched center channel for a system based on the S5t, the new S5c (SRP: $5995 in piano black, $6495 in a custom finish) features Perlisten Audio’s DPC-Array, with three 28mm Beryllium domes, dual 28mm TexTreme ultra-lightweight domes, and two 180mm TexTreme woofers.
The S7c offers wide horizontal dispersion and controlled vertical imaging, which is essential considering center channel monitors are typically placed lower than other speakers. The controlled vertical dispersion reduces the floor reflections that can blur the critical midrange. And, like the S5t, the S5c is a THX Certified Dominus speaker.
