PSB Speakers have announced the new Alpha iQ streaming active speakers.

Building on the success of the AM3 and AM5 active monitors, it's great to see the addition of BluOS streaming to this new model for an all-in-one system.

The Alpha iQ employs a DSP-based active crossover. As with many PSB designs, the tweeter is placed below the woofer. With this arrangement, the blend between woofer and tweeter remains consistent whether you’re sitting or standing.

Each woofer has its own 60W class-D amplifier, and each tweeter its own 30W class-D amp, for total system output of 180W. Thanks to their powerful amplifiers, tuned bass ports, and DSP-enabled low-frequency extension, PSB’s Alpha iQ speakers deliver bass output that completely belies their diminutive size.

Some of the great features include:

  • 180W system power for huge performance in a compact form
  • AirPlay 2, Bluetooth, MM Phono, Optical, AUX, HDMI eARC inputs
  • Dedicated subwoofer out with configurable crossover in BluOS app
  • BluOS streaming platform for high fidelity wireless multiroom audio
  • Low-latency wireless connection between the primary and secondary speakers for tangle-free installation
  • Audiophile-grade DAC supporting up to 24-bit/192kHz
  • Spotify Connect and Tidal Connect
  • Matte black or white finish options

ETA: January. Accepting pre-orders now.
