Your success story with the A17-M
Only you know where your story begins, and who knows where it will take you? With the A17-M, you can trust your judgement every step of the way. Listen better, create faster.
You can trust your speakers, since it is their sound that has earned PSI Audio the respect of audio professionals all around the world. Building on over 40 years of experience and continuous development, the A17-M is the definitive nearfield monitor. Assess your work comprehensively without a subwoofer – or enhance the A17-M with a Sub A125-M, for example. Whatever story you need to tell, the A17-M helps you get your message across – a friend you should definitely listen to.
Perfect Stereo Image
Stereo is more than just volume differences between the left and right channels. Phase relations are paramount to determine the accurate position of a signal in the acoustic space – and hence equally important in the development of PSI Audio speakers. The accurate phase alignment provided by PSI Audio CPR technology recreates the vivid spatial listening experience as it was intended. Instrument placement, reverb envelopes, even compression artefacts are easy to identify with the phase-corrected reproduction of PSI Audio speakers.
What do you do when you cannot find a driver appropriate for the sonic accuracy you want to achieve with your speaker? At PSI Audio, we decided to just build our own then.
The tweeter used in the A17-M is unique, our own development and built by hand in our manufacture in Switzerland. Superior to any market-bought solutions, our tweeter offers unparalleled clarity, subtlety and fidelity. It took a lot of time and effort to create this tweeter – certainly a lot more than buying one from an international supplier would have.
But the result is absolutely worth it.
