PSB Speakers has announced the immediate availability of two new affordable compact, powered speakers, the Alpha AM3 and Alpha AM5. The new models are founded on PSB’s almost 50 years of critically acclaimed speaker design expertise and the Alpha P3 and P5 introduced last year. The Alpha AM3 ($399/pr U.S. MSRP) and Alpha AM5 ($599/pr) are offered in a choice of Matte White or Matte Black finish.
With the Alpha AM3 and AM5 active monitors, there’s no amplifier to hook up or apps to download. Stream and listen to your favorite music with aptX Bluetooth from your mobile devices. Both models feature several sound modes allowing you to accentuate dialog, soundstage, and more. Vinyl lovers will appreciate the dedicated RCA phono input. Where desired, use the sub output to add a subwoofer for even deeper bass. The flexible design of these Alpha active monitors makes them suited for desktop, bookshelf, or stand-mount placement.
With similar designs, the differences between the Alpha AM5 and AM3 can primarily be found in the size of the cabinet, the amount of amplifier power, and the size of the woofer. Using PSB’s proprietary Alpha drivers, the AM5 features a 5.25-inch woofer with textured polypropylene cone and a 50W x 2 amplifier. The AM3 utilizes a 4-inch woofer and a 35W x 2 amp. Both utilize a 3/4-inch aluminum dome tweeter with Neodymium magnet and feature acoustically-transparent detachable magnetic grilles.
