Compact Box PSB Imagine Mini

Great listening fun despite scarce mass is the motto of the imagine mini (800 Euro per pair) by PSB. The pretty box sounds really emotional.

While digital cameras long ago fit into your shirt pocket, hi-fi speakers have become hardly less in the last 20 years. Although lots offered in the mass market by Microanlagen, but it worth should be not fooled. Boxes, small as espresso cups, now times not really adult sound.

Recovery beckons when electronic filters and Subwoofers come into play. But many advertising claims for stressed small products paint a too positive picture. Too often clanks and blares it from tiny Tönerchen, mostly already the dominant frequency range sounds soft, hollow, and virtual. Embezzled bass even not rarely complete the tiny.

Experts are therefore well advised to push the miniaturization of their facility not on the top. The only question is: where ends the game stuff and where begins HiFi? The Canadian manufacturer of PSB sees the border at a basket diameter of 11 centimeters for the bass-midrange speaker and is thus in line with many other providers. Also historical models such as the generation Tablet or the BBC monitor LS 3/5A were and are at home in this size class.

A few liters

The boxes housing fitting to the chassis format need not ten liters and are usually similarly proportioned like a human head. This geometric parallel contributes to that boxes this format often particularly homogeneous and natural sound; especially for vocals, which often dominates the musical content and is perceived as particularly important.

Aside from that which is PSB imagine mini a modern ALLROUNDER significantly exceed its historical role models in terms of linearity, omnidirectional, and resilience. Whopping 97 decibel barely 24 cm large settled elicit relative to 1 meter distance box in the measuring laboratory – almost as much as some stand box with a multiple of membrane surface area and volume.

Less euphoric was the response to the measurement of the bass cutoff, which was determined with 75 Hertz: 20 Hz above the manufacturer’s specification. Expert know what that means: deep bass hopes delete or Add Pack subwoofer; the fate of virtually all passive speakers of this volume.

The mini is the smallest model of the noble imagine series and benefits from some features you would normally expect in this price range. So are three fine real wood veneers to choose from, for additional charge of 100 euro per pair or black or white high gloss.

The chassis feature high-linear drives with space-saving and nevertheless strong neodymium magnets. Specifically, the low-midrange driver want to sound so powerful and multi-faceted than usual in the size class.

In a direct comparison with large standing speakers, the small PSB largely hides deep bass. However, after a short familiarization interpolates the missing shares the sense of hearing and directs the focus on the areas that traditionally the most dominate small boxes: naturalness in the voice area and General openness.

On the CD, 11/2011 accompanying stereoplay, guitarist Hans Theessink plays a sensitive “No. expectations”. The PSB masters the more tranquil piece with great voice power and pleasantly bright timbres. For just 800 euros x a very good performance.
