Overview Details Accessories

Fantastic PSB sound in a compact design

The compact PSB Alpha PS1 powered speaker system can fit on even the most space-challenged desks and bring your music to life with surprising punch. To be honest, we're not really too surprised. That's because PSB conducts rigorous testing and research at Canada's National Research Council to ensure all their speakers deliver outstanding performance in the real world. No tricks here, just solid, thoughtful engineering for refined, true-to-life sound. Add in the beautiful high-gloss finish, and you have a speaker that's ready to impress.

PSB Alpha PS1 powered speakers

Turn your desktop into a concert hall

Despite their tiny footprint, these speakers have the power to fill a small- to medium-sized room with rich, robust sound. They each feature a 3-1/2" metalized polypropylene woofer and 3/4" aluminum dome tweeter designed to deliver the same smooth response off to the sides of the speaker as directly in front. This allows the Alpha PS1s to "disappear" while projecting a large and detailed soundstage. And the speakers' rounded shape offers a stylish look for your desktop.

Quick and simple set up

Hooking up these speakers is easy and straightforward. RCA and minijack inputs let you listen to music from your computer or a portable player, like an iPod®, or another audio source. A line-level subwoofer output makes it easy to expand  your system to include an optional powered subwoofer. The Alpha PS1 also includes a 2 x 20-watt power amplifier built into the left speaker, so you just make a simple connection between the left and right speakers using the included cable. The universal power supply with both EU and US power cords works with any AC voltage, making it convenient for world travelers.

PSB Alpha PS1 Reviews

Reviewer: Ross from Bloomington, IN  
Very impressed with all of the nuances that are heard from PSB Alpha PS1Speakers. I am running them through an amp/dac, which in my opinion is a must scenario if you are using a computer. There is plenty of power behind them to fill a moderate size room with any level you want to hear. Loudness isn't needed to hear all the nuances. You will here nice smooth /crisp highs along with a decent tight bass for the size of the driving speakers. I would suggest buying the whole system with the sub. I will be purchasing this soon. The body of the music, in my opinion will be more full.

Great Speakers December-14-15
Reviewer: Mal from South Carolina  
Great speakers at a great price.  The acoustics are great;  can hear the tiniest of sounds clearly.  They were such an improvement in listening experience, we added the sub-woofer to enhance the lower tones.  That was another step up in listening quality.  We could not be more pleased.

Convenient, space-saving, and good sound November-22-15
Reviewer: Ken B. from Massachusetts  
These speakers replace a more elaborate system that took up more space and delivered no better sound.

Good sound October-20-15
Reviewer: Jim from Ohio  
I bought these with the Klipsch SW-110 as a set. They are very compatible and easy to interface to my desktop computer. The sound is accurate and enjoyable. I can't find any faults in this purchase if you are looking for a hi-end listening experience at a reasonable price.

Awesome April-03-15
Reviewer: OT from Michigan  
I got these speakers as a set with PSB Sub 100, and I hated the sub in set that sub is a shame so I called and exchanged the whole set by Keeping Alpha and bringing in Klipsch sub well well well all of sudden I hear music I hear what I wanted to hear for a long time, I previously tried A5 they were too loud and bass heavy but Alpha's play so clean and crisp that I enjoy every track, I' m never going to recommend anything else then Alpha to anyone. Do not I repeat Do not look here and there buy these gems and rest the case.
