PSB Introduces Imagine Mini, Bold New Member Of Highly Acclaimed Imagine Speaker Series

Elegant, Sophisticated New Entry Widens Imagine Series' Value and Appeal While Adding Its Own Distinctive Personality

Sharon, MA, July 25, 2011 - PSB Speakers, long renowned for affordable excellence in loudspeaker design, expands its acclaimed Imagine Series with the new Imagine mini loudspeaker. The mini is a high -performance, high -style, compact speaker that helps consumers more fully integrate Imagine Series speakers into their audio, home theater, and overall entertainment needs.


The newest and smallest member of the company's ultra -stylish Imagine Series, the deceptively small mini makes a big impact on an already impressive range of award -winning Imagine speakers. With its remarkable performance and compact size, the mini is as versatile as it is cute.

Imagine Series speakers are noted for their clear midrange presence, uncluttered bass, smooth extended highs and high -power handling. They also exhibit a uniquely derived method of cabinet construction that combines the precision of computer -controlled machining with the irreplaceable touch of hand craftsmanship.

The mini offers all these characteristics in a more compact, efficient form, with no compromise in sonic performance or visual sophistication. Its' subtly curved, elegantly formed cabinet with seamless, unbroken surfaces is a Master Class in proportion, sculptural form, and visual detail. The mini also adds some unique features of its own, including a neodymium Turbo -Magnet™ and a very low crossover frequency.

Advanced technology from PSB's critically -acclaimed Synchrony Series has trickled down to mini's under $1k per pair price point offering performance vs value unheard of in this class.

Matching stands, custom brackets and choice of designer colors/finishes allow mini to work in virtually any home environment. Perfect for modern decors, mini is available in a choice of Black Ash, Dark Cherry or Walnut in furniture -grade wood veneers at $760 per pair MSRP. Also available are the premium High Gloss Black or High Gloss White finishes for $830 per pair.

mini fits in anywhere.
Measuring just 5.75" wide x 9.25" high x 8.3" deep and weighing 6.5 lbs, the mini integrates well as part of a multi -channel or home theatre Imagine system or as a practical desktop system. The mini's clean detailed bass makes it ideal as a primary system for urban spaces. Its compact size and high performance allow it to be an ideal speaker for urban spaces and also makes an ideal monitor for nearfield computer audio playback.

The mini's acoustic design includes a 4 -inch woofer with a clay/ceramic compounded polypropylene cone and rubber surround, a 1 -inch titanium dome tweeter with Ferrofluid, and a rear port bass reflex. Unique to the mini, in addition to the main ceramic magnet structure on the woofer, the Turbo -Magnet™ is another powerful neodymium magnet resting on top of the pole piece. The Turbo -Magnet increases the force factor of the compound magnet and energizes the magnetic gap around the voice coil, audibly improving the woofer's low frequency performance, which results in a more controlled and extended bass response.

Unlike other small two -way systems, the mini crosses the tweeter at 2.2 kHz, allowing the drivers to be placed closer together than usual, minimizing interference between them. Keeping the crossover frequency very low relative to the woofer size means listeners hear the same sound no matter where in the listening area they may be sitting.

Key Features of the PSB Imagine mini:
• Compact size makes for easy placement virtually anywhere.
• Advanced technology from PSB's critically -acclaimed Synchrony Series
• Equally adept at music or movies.
• Choice of designer colors/finishes allow mini to work in virtually any environment.
• Optional matching stands and custom brackets allow for easy elegant placement

PSB will be exhibiting in the Lenbrook Booth # 3014 at the upcoming CEDIA Expo September 8 -10 at the Indiana Convention Center, Indianapolis, Indiana.
