Product Description

Many small speakers employ tricks like exaggerating the treble or falsely boosting bass to overcome limitations and poor performance, but not so with the Alpha PS1. Using sound research and exhaustive testing at Canada's National Research Council in the nation's capital of Ottawa, our PSB team has designed the Alpha PS1 with extremely smooth and refined sound. You'll be pleasantly surprised by its output capability and solid tuneful bass response that belies the Alpha PS1's diminutive size. The response off to the sides of the speaker has the same smooth response as the sound directly in front, making the Alpha PS1s acoustically 'disappear' by projecting a large and exquisitely detailed sound image—a PSB performance hallmark. This is no ordinary computer speaker!

Simply plug your computer, game console, tablet or smart mobile device into the Alpha PS1 and you have a complete sound system—one with a high-end audio pedigree. For the ultimate in gaming excitement and dramatic home theatre effects, an optional SubSeries 100 powered subwoofer can easily be added by connecting to the convenient subwoofer output. The volume control will now adjust the Alpha PS1 speakers and the subwoofer together in perfect synchronization. If you crave a sonic boost for your TV, computer, CD, DVD or Blu-ray player or any other device, the Alpha PS1 won't disappoint. You can even go wireless by using Apple's AirPlay ecosystem and just connecting an Airport Express to the Alpha PS1.

Sporting a 3.5" metalized polypropylene cone and oversized magnet structure, the Alpha PS1 boasts a ¾" aluminium tweeter. The Alpha PS1 also includes a highly efficient 2 x 20W power amplifier. The universal power supply works with any AC voltage making it convenient for world travellers. Its curvaceo

us organic form is functional as well as beautiful, allowing maximum internal volume for good bass response.

To optimise your nearfield listening experience, you may choose to use the optional PS1 tilt base (sold separately) to adjust the position of the speakers.

The Alpha PS1 combines the amplifier and speaker together into a complete system solution design like no other. Finding separate amplifiers and speakers with this level of performance, at this price, would be impossible. Add in the small size, beautiful high gloss finish, and exceptional flexibility, and you have a speaker that is perfectly in sync with today's world.

  • "I was astonished at the punchy, vibrant, full-bodied sounds and lifelike vocals produced by such tiny speakers... I couldn't have asked for a bigger soundstage and perfect instrument placement from a set of desktop speakers." - Arlen Schweiger
    Source/Read full review: CE Pro, Oct 2014

    "tuneful bass, tangible mids and a sweet, airy treble. They are conservatively rated: their performance goes beyond the power and bass extension ratings." - Jim Clements

    "Surprisingly large and full-bodied sound, with clean highs and an open, uncolored midrange."

    "It should come as no surprise that these powered speakers are high performers." - Mark Fleischmann

    "Sound like a diamond... mighty impressive, thanks to rich orchestral tones, gunfire that sounded ultra-realstic, and great vocal tones"

    "First, the control is much, much better than most such lifestyle speakers. There is zero effort or strain in the delivery unless you pump up the volume to way-too-loud levels... If you are looking for a pair of easy-to-set-up speakers to hook up your phone, tablet or computer, the Alpha PS1 has to be on your list of potential buys." - Alfred Siew

    "The PSB Alpha PS1 powered desktop speakers are some of the cleanest, clearest-sounding speakers to have graced my desktop. Even using my iMac's 3.5mm analog output, the music taking up residence on and around my desk is remarkably free from any sort of sound other than the music itself. There's no boom in the bass, no tipped up treble, just clean, clear, music. For $300/pair that should make a lot of music lovers very happy." - Michael Lavorgna
