Bowers & Wilkins MT-60D Mini Home Theatre System
Combine our clever little M-1 speakers with the explosive power of the PV1D subwoofer, and you have our flagship MT-60D Mini Theater system
If you’re looking for uncompromising cinema sound that fits easily into your life, look no further than our flagship Mini Theatre system. The MT-60D system twins M-1 speakers with the stunning power and control
of a PV1D subwoofer to create a sound that will keep you gripped, right up until the final frame.
Sleek, compact, yet packing a powerful punch, the M-1 satellite speaker is the backbone of both our Mini Theatre systems, taking all five positions in a surround-sound set-up. From the inside out, the M-1 was conceived as a unified system. Its design has evolved in a totally integrated way, from the custom-made crossover to the two piece clamshell cabinet. And now, following a complete technological overhaul, including all-new drive units designed in-house, it sounds better than ever. Dispersion has increased. Imaging is pin-point accurate. Performance is now full range. In fact, the improvement is such that a single pair of M-1s could happily take on the role of your dedicated stereo speakers. It all adds up to stunning sound, whatever you’re listening to.
The key to the M-1’s rock-solid sound is its unified, integrated structure: the way the design coalesces the components and cabinet into a harmonious whole. It all fits together beautifully, with a minimum of
noise-inducing seams, joints and discontinuities. The result is a speaker that’s rigid, well-damped and air-tight.
The M-1’s tweeter is no offthe peg model – it’s a highly specialised piece of equipment custom-made by the same designers and engineers who created some of our bestknown hi-fi speakers, including the CM Series.
As well as featuring a unique surround material, the tweeter is tube-loaded – a design innovation we first introduced on our groundbreaking Nautilus™ speaker. The tube works by soaking up unwanted resonance from the back of the tweeter, so the sound you hear from the front is as detailed and precise as possible.
The redesigned bass/midrange driver features our AntiResonance Plug – an acoustic innovation first seen on our high-end PM1 loudspeaker. Constructed from polymer foam, the mushroom-shaped device soaks up resonance like a sponge while also reducing cone break-up, creating unparalled clarity and detail in the midrange.
When we decided to create a new, powerful, compact subwoofer for use in home theatre set-ups, we weren’t going to contradict nature. Instead of a box, we based it on a bubble; the natural way of containing internal pressures without resorting to corners and edges. It’s a beautiful solution to the problems that plague conventional subwoofers. In the PV1D, the tremendous air pressures that stress the panels
of normal, flat-sided subs at higher output levels are dispersed evenly around a rigid, continuous shell, reducing unwanted vibrations to a bare minimum. The PV1D’s inherent stability means it can be pushed just that bit further. The symmetrical mounting of its twin drive units keeps the subwoofer perfectly balanced and anchored to the floor. So there’s no rattle when it rumbles. The back-to-back arrangement also further improves the distribution of pressure inside the speaker. Coupled to an all-new amplifier generating 400 Watts of power, the drivers
have the dynamics and control to deliver all a subwoofer should. A big sound from a small bubble.
