The Popular Near-Field Monitor Gets a New Hand-made Tweeter

The popular nearfield loudspeaker PSI Audio A17-M gets a new handmade tweeter. The tweeter offers higher SPL capacities with lower distortion levels, thus taking the already impressive speaker to a new level of sonic precision that produces the most natural sound possible.

PSI Audio A17-M – powerful near-field studio monitor

The A17-M is the reference among nearfield monitors. It is very powerful for its size and delivers uncompromising quality in terms of stereo imaging, bass control as well as full-bandwidth transparency. Are you ready to be one step ahead?

You can trust your speakers because it’s their sound that has earned PSI Audio the respect of audio professionals around the world. Built on over 40 years of experience and continuous development, the A17-M is the definitive nearfield monitor. Evaluate your work comprehensively without a subwoofer – or complement the A17-M with an A125-M sub, for example. Whatever story you have to tell, the A17-M will help you get your message across – a friend you should definitely listen to.

Perfect stereo image

Stereo is more than just volume differences between the left and right channels. Phase is critical to determining the exact position of a signal in acoustic space – and therefore equally important in the design of PSI Audio loudspeakers. The precise phase alignment of PSI Audio’s CPR technology provides a vivid, spatial listening experience, just as it was intended. Not only instrument placement and reverb tails, but also compression artifacts are easily identified with the phase-corrected reproduction of PSI Audio speakers.

Handcrafted Tweeter

What do you do when you can’t find a driver that’s suitable for the sonic precision you want to achieve with your speaker? At PSI Audio, we decided to build our own tweeter.

The tweeter used in the A17-M is unique, our own development and is handmade in our manufactory in Switzerland. Our tweeter is superior to any solution available on the market and offers unparalleled clarity, subtlety as well as fidelity. It took us a lot of time and effort to develop this tweeter – certainly much more than if we had bought it from an international supplier. But the result is absolutely worth it.

The same – but better

The A17-M is an established reference in the field of nearfield monitors. Consequently, sound engineers agree:

  • Best stereo image
  • Transparent sound
  • Powerful for its size
  • Impressive low frequency response
  • Non-fatiguing
  • Rugged and durable

And now with even more tweeter headroom and even less distortion. Ask your local dealer to try it out.

Please note that this modification involves a modified cabinet and different electronics, so unfortunately it is not possible to upgrade from a previous A17-M model.
