Potent, compact bookshelf speakers deliver impressively accurate sound
Despite their simple appearance, PSB’s Imagine B speakers pack a powerful punch that’ll impress even the most discerning of listeners. They work great on their own in a high-performance two-channel system, or you can add one of PSB’s HD subwoofers for even better bass. The Imagine line borrows technology developed for PSB’s higher-end Synchrony series, so you get audiophile-quality performance in a high-value speaker. The Imagine Bs also feature seamless, curved cabinets that are finished with stunning, hand-picked real-wood veneers — a stylish addition to any listening room.
“The Imagine B [has] both clarity and listenability in spades. It also [has] remarkable bass extension and volume…”
—John Marks, Stereophile, February 2009
Precise driver design for natural sound
The Imagine Bs each feature a highly accurate 1″ titanium dome tweeter that produces smooth, sparkling highs. The 5-1/4″ woofer uses a proprietary ceramic-filled polypropylene cone, which makes it very stiff and light. The resulting midrange is clean and balanced, with tight bass response. A highly efficient motor structure with a unique compound magnet helps reduce audible distortion.
Solid, elegantly curved cabinets with a real-wood veneer finish
All Imagine speakers have smooth, 1-1/2″ thick front baffles that blend almost seamlessly with the seven-layer laminated MDF side, top, and bottom panels. Plus, the heavy internal bracing ensures an impressively solid, acoustically inert enclosure. The top, side, and bottom panels are clad in real wood veneer that’s hand selected for its beauty and quality.
