Every now and then as a speaker manufacturer, you need to up your game and unveil you new top-of-the-line range. PSB is just doing that. They announced their new flagship Synchrony Series, consisting of the T600 tower speakers and the B600 Bookshelf Speakers. Let’s take a closer look at the big guy.
5 ways to seduce your ears
The Synchrony T600 Premium Tower Speaker features an all-new 5-way transitional array capable of delivering the most technically refined and demanding music and film recordings, with unmatched tonal, spatial, and dynamic accuracy. Consisting of 3 x 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, the new 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. 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. The amplitude-perfect Linkwitz-Riley 4th order crossover network of the T600 is the most advanced crossover that PSB Speakers has ever utilized, featuring high-voltage polyfilm capacitors and oxygen-free interconnect wire for complete driver control.
The T600s incorporate custom-designed IsoAcoustics integrated isolation feet, based on the same 3-part technology of their award-winning GAIA II isolators. Along with the outrigger stabilizers, the isolators provide a high degree of speaker isolation and control, while resisting lateral movement and oscillations to maintain accuracy and alignment with the listening position. Internal reflections with the supporting surface are attenuated resulting in greater sound clarity and openness.
Available in two gorgeous finishes, Satin Walnut veneer and High Gloss Black, the T600 features magnet-mounted acoustically-transparent fabric grilles. Using the two provided bass port covers, listeners can fine tune the bass to control common room resonance problems at low frequencies. Also included are two speaker terminal jumper bars to allow for tri-and bi-wiring, as well as tri-and bi-amping. The insulated 5-way binding posts offer versatility in speaker terminal connectors.
