Powered Streaming Speakers
Since 1991, the PSB Alpha Series has upheld design standards of simplicity, compactness, and versatility. The Alpha iQ refashions the iconic Alpha speaker for the next generation by integrating a built-in amplifier, streaming capabilities, and BluOS multi-room technology into a pair of wireless bookshelf speakers. The result- a revolutionary all-in-one system that combines convenience with uncompromised audio quality.
Behind the Alpha Series
First designed and manufactured in a small Canadian town in 1991, the Alpha Series started with the simple idea of creating affordable speakers that were focused purely on performance. With passion and dedication in pursuit of a natural sounding speaker, and by leveraging decades of research conducted at the Canadian National Research Council by PSB’s founder, Paul Barton, the Alphas quickly rose to be one of the world’s most iconic speakers and are still the reference benchmark for entry-level hi-fi speakers today.
One App Control
The BluOS Controller app simplifies streaming and control of your music with a single app that automatically connects to the Alpha iQ thanks to a fully integrated network connection. Enjoy lossless music up to 24-bit/192kHz with no lag or loss in sound quality, wirelessly transmitted to any room in your home. Control all your music from anywhere in the house with ease using the full-featured BluOS Controller app for iOS and Android devices.
PSB’s Alpha iQ speakers feature a 4″ polypropylene mid-bass driver and 0.75″ aluminum dome tweeter with neodymium magnet and ferrofluid damping. Thanks to powerful amplifiers, tuned bass ports, and a DSP-enabled low-frequency extension, the Alpha iQ reveal the signature sound of PSB while delivering a bass output that completely belies their diminutive size.
The Alpha iQ is not your average set of stereo speakers. They’re a compact, minimal bookshelf speaker system that serves as a true all-in-one music system. The Alpha iQ can be placed anywhere in the home with their elegant cabinet and sleek touch panels. Their wireless stereo pairing eliminates cable clutter, requiring only a power connection. The unique tweeter placement below the woofer provides consistent sound quality whether you’re sitting or standing.
"..PSB’s online spec sheet says the Alpha iQ are 3dB down at 64Hz, in my 6m x 5m room, they seem to go lower. Another way of looking at it is this: whatever this PSB loudspeaker lacks in bass reach, it more than makes up for in dynamic bass punch. The Alpha iQ is not the weak-sounding noise maker many might expect it to be. Moreover, we can add a subwoofer via the Alpha iQ’s other main feature: the BluOS operating system." - Darko Audio
"If you like the idea of a system that grows with your needs, and you don’t mind putting in some time to learn the basics, the PSB Alpha IQ are a great option, offering features and performance that exceed their tiny size in spades." -WIRED
