PSB Debuts New Line
We met up last wek with Paul Barton, PSB’s company founder and chief designer, in Los Angeles and New York City, where he introduced his new family of PSB speakers.
The new “Imagine” line of loudspeakers consist of four models: The Imagine T, a three-driver, two-and-a-half-way tower full-range floor-standing design ($2,000 a pair), and Imagine B two-way stand/bookshelf-mount are intended primarily for front-channels/stereo playback($1,000 a pair).
The Imagine C is a dual-woofer, horizontal two-way center-channel speaker ($800), while the Imagine S is a dual-two-way, selectable dipole/bipole/dual channel monopole surround loudspeaker which may be connected as two discrete (side/rear) two-way pairs in compatible systems($1,200). All four Imagine models share a common driver family, with an all-new, very high-output 5.25-inch woofer, and a wide-band and ultra-accurate, titanium-dome 1-inch tweeter inspired by the performance of the Synchrony high-frequency unit. All four are offered in a choice of black-ash or dark-cherry furniture-grade veneers.
