PSB Alpha AM5: Affordable active compact monitors

PSB has launched the Alpha AM5, an affordable active compact monitor. The new product is based on developments used in the Alpha series . PSB Alpha AM5 speaker systems are universal active speakers that are suitable for both entertainment and work.


The versatility of the PSB Alpha AM5 speakers is expressed both in the absence of genre boundaries and in the switching methods. In addition to the wired connection, wireless communication with the source is provided. Built-in Bluetooth supports the aptX codec, you can connect any mobile device or stationary player. In terms of traditional wired connections, the speakers boast a 3.5mm jack, a dedicated Phono jack for turntables, as well as optics and USB (there’s a built-in DAC). The speaker capabilities are complemented by a separate subwoofer output.


The PSB Alpha AM5 speakers have a 5.25-inch woofer and a 0.25-inch dome tweeter with neodymium magnets. The emitters are powered by two 50 W amplifiers. The manufacturer noted that the new inexpensive monitors, like the rest of the company’s acoustics, have undergone final tuning, for which the chief engineer and founder of the company, Paul Barton, is responsible.
