PSB Owners Thread..

I decided to open a PSB speakers thread for any PSB owners to tell us what you have and what you think of them.

PSB released the brand new T3 in their Imagine series. Below is a link to their specs.

Re: PSB Owners Thread..

Have you previously or do you currently own any PSB speakers? When I was just getting into the hobby years ago, the first speakers I auditioned were PSB (Alpha I think?). I may even still have the brochure somewhere. I just got a little sad though because I can't remember what song they played for me. I was amazed by their sound as I had not yet been exposed to high quality compact speakers.

I'm not sure if this is the first review done on PSB ImagineXT lineup...

The original Alphas were highly-regarded by serious and casual listener alike. Not sure how the modern incarnation stacks up, but a quick Google search turns up accolades galore! I own a pair of Image B5's--a step down from the Imagine series--but excellent performers in their own right. Haven't done any serious auditioning in a mains or stereo configuration, so I can't vouch for their performance in that regard. But I can say they fill surround channel duties without a hitch (except for slight upper-frequency harshness/glare when pushed hard). I'll even venture to say they blend almost seamlessly with my B&W CM-9 mains.

I try to be as good as my dog thinks I am

Re: PSB Owners Thread..

Does anyone have a copy of the owners manual or specifications for the orginal PSB Alpha Mites? I'm searching the internet and coming up empty handed.

Hey 3db. This is as close as I could get. Reviews can sometimes provide relevant information. I would email psb. Manufacturers are usually good about help.

Thanks for the link. That was one of the links that came up in my search. I should have mentioned that I was looking for a review with frequency response curves etc.
