Introducing PSB’s New Flagship Tower Loudspeakers

Featuring an all-new driver platform, new enclosure and crossover designs, and integrated IsoAcoustics isolation feet, PSB’s new Synchrony series is the clearest expression yet of the acclaimed brand’s “True to Nature” design philosophy.

The Synchrony T600 Premium Tower Speaker is a five-way transitional array employing three 6.5" woofers, a 5.25" midrange driver, and a 1" titanium dome tweeter, in a heavily braced, four-chamber MDF enclosure.

The Synchrony T600 is the culmination of a two-year development process. PSB’s team of highly regarded acoustic specialists guided by renowned PSB Founder and Chief Acoustic Designer, Paul Barton, used a sophisticated array of tools, including laser vibrometry equipment and acoustic simulation optimisation software from Denmark’s Loudsoft Ltd. That software enabled them to model cone, motor, crossover, and enclosure behaviour.

The Enclosure

The T600’s MDF enclosure has more extensive internal bracing than any speaker PSB has ever built. This ultra-rigid construction minimises cabinet resonances that can cause uneven response and blur transients.

Finishes and Options

PSB’s Synchrony T600 Tower Speakers are available in two gorgeous furniture-grade finishes: Satin Walnut Veneer and High Gloss Black. Other design elements, such as a tasteful Synchrony logo on the top edge of the baffle, enhance the T600’s visual appeal.

Natural Harmony

With its new driver platform, enclosure design, amplitude-perfect Linkwitz-Riley acoustic crossover, and integrated IsoAcoustics isolators, the Synchrony T600 Tower is the most advanced speaker PSB has ever built. Each of these refinements makes a meaningful contribution to the Synchrony T600’s performance. Combined, they enable the T600 to deliver revelatory, transporting listening experiences, with both music and movies.

Features:

Speaker Design: The Synchrony T600 Premium Tower Speaker is a five-way transitional array employing three 6½" woofers, a 5¼" midrange driver, and a 1" titanium dome tweeter, in a heavily braced, four-chamber MDF enclosure

  • 1” Tweeter: The T600’s titanium dome tweeter features a neodymium magnet and Ferrofluid cooling. These measures improve maximum output and power handling, without causing dynamic compression or increasing harmonic and intermodulation distortion.
  • 5.25” Midrange / 6.5” Woofers: The T600’s woofers and midrange driver feature die-cast aluminium baskets, woven carbon-fibre cones, and rubber surrounds. Thanks to the carbon fibre cones’ low mass and high rigidity, the new Synchrony drivers have wider bandwidth (about half an octave lower), higher efficiency, and lower distortion than previous driver designs from PSB. On the Synchrony drivers, mass is added to the rubber surround at the junction with the cone; this suppresses unwanted reflections, resulting in smoother frequency response. The highly rigid cast aluminium basket is entirely unaffected by cone motion. The motors of the woofers and midrange driver have shorted turns (Faraday rings) that keep magnetic force in the voice coil gap constant, regardless of the position of the voice coil. Combined with longer voice coils, this reduces harmonic and intermodulation distortion.

Bass Reflex Cabinet: The T600 has an MDF enclosure with more extensive internal bracing than any speaker PSB has ever built. This ultra-rigid construction minimises cabinet resonances that can cause uneven response and blur transients. The front baffle is clad in a 5mm-thick solid aluminium plate, which suppresses “baffle talk” that can obscure fine detail. The aluminium plate has threaded pins on the rear that grab ten small isolation cups, five on each side, that suspend the plate between the two sidewalls of the enclosure. The aluminium plate has contact with the cabinet only around its perimeter. The isolation cups decouple the aluminium plate from the enclosure, another measure that helps preserve fine detail.
The enclosure is divided into four chambers: one sealed chamber for the midrange driver and tweeter, and three identically tuned rear-ported chambers, one for each woofer. This breaks up standing waves inside the enclosure that could otherwise cause uneven response and distortion.
The topmost woofer is crossed over to the midrange driver at 450Hz, using a third-order Butterworth filter. The lower two woofers cover progressively narrower frequency bands. The transitional-array design and varied placement of the woofers result in smoother bass response, because it randomises the floor bounce, wherein reflections of low-frequency waves from the floor interfere with direct radiation of the woofers.

Dual Binding Posts: Each T600 has three pairs of insulated gold-plated five-way binding posts. The speakers come with installed jumpers for conventional single-cable amp-to-speaker connection. But the jumpers can be removed for tri-amping or tri-wiring, or shifted for bi-amping or bi-wiring.

Outrigger Feet: Each T600 tower has four outrigger feet with custom-designed isolators that couple to the floor and dissipate mechanical energy from the cabinet and drivers. Based on IsoAcoustics’ award-winning GIAA II isolators, the isolation feet prevent energy from the drivers and cabinet from being reflected back into the enclosure, and also prevent structure-borne vibrations from reaching the listener. Benefits include improved micro-detail, clearer transients, a wider soundstage, and more precise imaging.

Finishes and Options: PSB’s Synchrony T600 Tower Speakers are available in two gorgeous furniture-grade finishes: Satin Walnut Veneer and High Gloss Black. Other design elements, such as a tasteful Synchrony logo on the top edge of the baffle, enhance the T600’s visual appeal.
The speakers are supplied with two narrow-profile black grilles that complement the enclosures. Thanks to their super-slim cross-sections, the grilles have minimal effect on the T600’s sound. Magnets embedded in both the grille and enclosure assure a quick, secure fit.
Included with each T600 tower are two port plugs that can be inserted into the bass-reflex ports at the back. This lets listeners tune the speakers bass output to suit their listening environment.

Canada is almost as far away from New Zealand as you can get, but it seems we are close on more than just stunning scenery and a large neighbour.

We also appear to share similar tastes in a great sounding loudspeakers. For over 30-years Canadian speakers have been popular addition to New Zealand homes. The Canadian sound differs from USA and UK markets, with their scientific approach being woven into the DNA of their products for the last 4 decades.

Perhaps inspired by nature, science or both, PSB are among the most awarded and reviewed Canadian loudspeaker companies.

THE “NATURAL AND OPEN” CANADIAN SOUND: INSPIRED BY NATURE

In 1974, Paul met Dr. Floyd Toole, a world renowned psychoacoustician at the NRC, who conducted numerous studies to understand how sounds were interpreted by the human sense of hearing at both the psychological and physiological levels. To Paul, who had devoted much of his childhood to become an accomplished violinist, it was a “Eureka” moment. He had long puzzled over how to consistently reproduce on a set of speakers the unique timbres of different violins exactly as they would sound to him when he played them.

What Paul immediately recognised upon listening to Dr. Toole describe his research was that his findings gave him the formula he needed to design speakers that to the human sense of hearing, would be perceived as organic sounding.

In other words, he could create speakers that wouldn’t fatigue a listener over long periods of listening because the listener would perceive those sounds in the same way they would the nature’s roaring thunder of Niagara Falls to all the subtleties of the soundscapes at the Algonquin Provincial Park.

In Dr. Toole, Paul found a lifelong friend and peer who would influence him and whom he influenced, all in the pursuit of a way to reproduce sounds that listeners would perceive as equivalent to that which was real, alive, and natural.
