PSB Speakers, reaching a 50-year milestone this year for excellence in hi-fidelity loudspeaker design, is pleased to launch a new generation of the acclaimed flagship series, Synchrony, to global markets. The latest edition of PSB’s flagship series consists of the B600 bookshelf speakers, as well as the T600 and T800 towers. Regarded as PSB’s most advanced speaker line to date, the Synchrony Series delivers outstanding performance, excellent value and carries the finest application of the brand’s acclaimed ‘True to Nature’ acoustics. The T800 Premium Towers (US$11,999 / €12,999 / £9,999 a pair MSRP), T600 Towers (US$8,999/ €9,999 / £7,999 a pair MSRP pair MSRP) and B600 Bookshelf Speakers (US$2,799 / €2,999 / £2,499 a pair MSRP pair MSRP), is available for purchase worldwide and come in Satin Walnut Veneer and High Gloss Black finishes.
The Synchrony T800 Towers are the largest speakers of the series with a wider frequency bandwidth and the largest power handling capacity amongst Synchrony speakers. Equipped with an all-new 5-way transitional array employing three 8″ woofers, a 5.25″ midrange driver, all featuring cast baskets and woven carbon-fibre cones, and a 1″ titanium dome tweeter in a heavily braced MDF cabinet, the T800s are capable of filling large rooms with detailed bass right down to the lowest register.
The driver platform results in a dramatic reduction of non-linear distortion, allowing for higher sound pressure levels without compression or increased THD and IM distortion. This can be immediately recognized by a more open midrange and deep bass impact. Small gradations in sound, or micro-dynamics, are vastly improved over previous driver platforms. The crossover in the T800 Premium Tower is this is the most advanced amplitude-perfect Linkwitz-Riley 4th order crossover that PSB Speakers has ever utilized, featuring high-voltage poly film capacitors and oxygen-free interconnect wire for complete driver control.
The driver platform of the T600 consists of three 6.5″ woofers and a 5.25″ midrange driver, all with cast aluminium baskets, woven carbon fibre cones and rubber surrounds, and a 1″ titanium dome tweeter with Ferrofluid and Neodymium magnet. As a result, a dramatic reduction of non-linear distortion allows for higher sound pressure levels without compression or increased THD and IM distortion. The advanced driver assembly features four elements (Faraday ring, shorted turn, longer voice coil, symmetrical magnetic drive) that all work in harmony to reduce driver distortion.
Using the same driver platform as the Synchrony towers, the B600 Bookshelf Speakers can be an easy complement to the towers or a standalone stand-out compact listening option. The 2-way bass reflex design features a 6.5″ woofer with cast aluminum basket and woven carbon fibre cone, and a 1″ titanium dome tweeter with Ferrofluid and Neodymium magnet. The light and rigid nature of woven carbon fibre cone delivers wider bandwidth — about half an octave deeper bass response over other PSB driver designs — with greater efficiency (88dB at 1m), higher power handling, and lower distortion.
Centre Channels – PWM Series
The PWM is designed to support the Synchrony Series as centre channels and effect channels in multi-channel applications. Incorporating advanced driver and cabinet design, the PWM series offer open and constant dispersion, tonal balance and bass extension of a truly refined loudspeaker many times their size. The PWM’s can be oriented either vertically or horizontally and be used as a front left, right, centre or surround channel speakers. Whether as part of a complete on wall system, a basic TV application or as an on-wall centre channel solution for floor standing speakers; the PWM Series exceed expectations in every way
Exquisitely True to Nature
Whether used in a multi-channel set-up or in stereo listening applications, the Synchrony series represents PSB’s signature, True to Nature acoustics, marked by superb tonal accuracy, thrilling dynamics, impactful bass, transparent midrange, pinpoint imaging, and exquisite detail. Each speaker is scientifically measured, tested and fine-tuned by a team of highly regarded acoustic specialists under the direction of PSB Founder and Chief Acoustic Designer, Paul Barton. Design and built with 50 years of experience, the Synchrony series is the clearest expression of PSB’s design philosophy to date.
