We recently named the PSB Alpha P5 Bookshelf Speaker “The best bookshelf speaker under $500”, and Stereophile awarded them “2019 Product Of The Year”, just two accolades they have received since dropping early last year.
Their sweet highs, coupled with the engaging mids and weighty bass, draw you in, making for a smooth sounding speaker that you can listen to for a long time. They also sound good with just about every genre.
Comparing them to the competition, I think they give you liveliness and excitement of the ELAC Debut B 6.2 speakers, along with the detail and transparency of the Q Acoustics 3020i. They are the best of both worlds! Just right.
We aim to help people put together low-cost, high-performance Hi-Fi systems, and the Alpha P5 is an excellent speaker to build around. Just put them together with the Audiolab 6000A ($999) or PS Audio Sprout 100 ($699), and you got a system you can be proud of without spending a ton.
The PSB Alpha P5 Bookshelf Speaker usually sells for $399, but now you can pick them up at a significant discount, by taking advantage of the $40 Off Coupon on Amazon. Pick them up as soon as you can, not sure how long this coupon will stay up!
