The Absolute Sound 2012 "Editors' Choice" Award Winner
"Best Sound for the Lowest Price" Award Winner - The Absolute Sound Magazine
"An Amazing Achievement," Says Robert Harley
Meet the newest and smallest member of the ultra-stylish PSB Imagine Series. The deceptively small Imagine Mini makes a big impact on an already impressive range of award-winning Imagine speakers. With its high-performance and compact size, the Mini is as versatile as it is cute.
Considering its diminutive size, "this tiny PSB is a pur-sang design: breeding matched to performance," notes John Atkinson in the August 2012 issue of Stereophile.
In The Absolute Sound magazine's "2011 CES Insiders Guide," Chris Martens reports, "At CES, the tiny PSB Imagine Minis blew minds, serving up an expansive, punchy, and richly textured sound wildly disproportionate to their size, with nary a trace of edginess or strain."
The Absolute Sound's Robert Harley awards the Mini the magazine's "Best Sound for the Lowest Price" honors, noting, "The Imagine Mini sounded far better than any $700-per-pair speaker has any right to. An amazing achievement."
"Surprisingly Punchy Bass"
"The Mini's hold their own so well, with surprisingly punchy bass, a mid-range clarity and elegance," says Piero Gabucci, in his May 2012 review for Secrets of Home Theater and High Fidelity. "With the added SubSeries 1, this is a formidable package capable of delivering a well balanced presentation."
"The PSB Imagine Mini may be small, but it is in its own way a monster performer whose design and build quality are worthy of a much more costly speaker," marvels Mark Fleischmann in his November 11, 2011 post for HomeTheater.com.
"If you want true high-end sound quality in a truly tiny speaker, the PSB Imagine Mini is clearly one of the best options going," suggests Brent Butterworth in Sound+Vision for December 23, 2011.
Imagine Minis Have Might!
The Mini produces a large soundstage and impressive bass along with the true-to-nature sound for which PSB is known. PSB's engineers designed the crossover frequency very low relative to the woofer size in order to provide the same sound no matter where the speaker is placed. The Mini is a two-way design with 4.5" woofer, 1" titanium dome tweeter with ferrofluid, and rear port bass reflex. The result is startlingly big and commanding sound with fine detail and emotion.
Measuring just 5.75" wide, 9.25" high, and 8.3" deep, the Mini integrates well as part of a multi-channel or home theater Imagine system or as a practical desktop system. But don't let it end there. The Mini's clean detailed bass makes it ideal as a primary system for urban spaces. And it's perfectly on trend for modern decors.
Like all Imagine Series speakers, the Mini's smooth, natural sound is a result of technology trickled down from PSB's top-of-the-line Synchrony Series, including its titanium dome tweeter with ferrofluid and neodymium magnet structures. This design helps to extend output for effortless top octaves and smooth, uncolored response.
Mini's proprietary injection molded clay/ceramic-filled polypropylene cone optimizes stiffness, internal damping, and low mass. PSB's brand new Turbo-Magnet provides more controlled and extended bass response.
