Perlisten R5m Monitor - THX Dominus, THX Ultra Speaker

The R-series Monitor is a culmination of S-series patented technology with materials developed from the ground up in every part of the design just like it’s big brothers.  The R5m is a true Chameleon with enough bass extension to offer an amazing 2 channel experience, the heart of a reference level 2.1 system, the LCR for a home theater, or surrounds in that monster R-series System. The option for a fully vented full range experience or a sealed enclosure, help transform this speaker to adapt to any system.

  • 3-way , bi-wireable design
  • sealed acoustic suspension design
  • THX Ultra and THX Dominus rated
  • DPC treble/midrange array
  • 1x 26mm soft dome HF unit
  • 2x 26mm soft dome midrange units
  • 2x 6.5" HPF bass drivers
  • 47Hz-32kHz sealed mode (THX Dominus)
  • 40Hz-32kHz ported mode (THX Ultra)
  • 80Hz-20kHz at +/-1.5dB (THX)
  • 89dB sensitivity
  • 113dB peak output
  • 4ohms nominal impedance (2.7 minimum)
  • 100-250w amplifier recommendation
  • H 230mm x W 546mm x D 336mm

As with all Perlisten loudspeakers, the R5m is centred around the DPC array, comprising of three 26mm soft domes in a vertical array. The centre dome is the 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 26mm 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 6.5" 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 R5m will cover 80Hz-20kHz within a very narrow +/-1.5dB deviation, and produce a peak output of 113.2dB.

All of this tech helps the R5m achieve a THX Dominus rating, capable of effortlessly filling large rooms with cinema levels of sound quality. Used in ported mode, the R5m will still achieve a THX Ultra rating.

IT'S ALL IN THE DETAILS

Designed to be mounted on optional stand, or mounted to a wall with our tilt swivel bracket. Sharing “trickle-down” technology from our flagship S-Series, the DPC-Array here based on three 26mm domes, guarantees excellent directivity control and timbre matching with all R-Series speakers. The Silk diaphragms developed ground up, chosen specifically their smooth, effortless representation of midrange and treble. The 165mm woofers are made from our proprietary HPF pulp, two years in development, bringing new technology to one of the oldest materials used in loudspeaker design. The R5m can be aligned as bass reflex or acoustic suspension depending on specific tastes. Rich, dynamic bass matched with advanced mid/treble directivity pattern control and silky highs offer best in class performance.
