PSB Synchrony T600 and B600 speakers: created in collaboration with the Canadian National Research Council
PSB‘s Synchrony T600 and B600 speakers were created based on research and development work conducted at the Canadian National Research Center (CNRC). According to PSB, it was NRC support that helped create speakers with “the most natural sound”. It is worth noting that PSB has previously produced acoustics with the participation of NRC.
PSB Synchrony T600 is a three-lane floorplane with offices divided into four chambers and an IsoAcoustics GAIA II decoupling base. The speakers used three 6.5-inch woofers, one 5.25-inch midrange speaker and one-inch tweeter with ferrofluid cooling and neodymium magnets. The midrange and woofers are distinguished by carbon diffusers and cast aluminum baskets.
The operation of the array of emitters is controlled by a fourth-order Linkwitz-Riley filter with high-voltage capacitors and oxygen-free wiring.
The T600 cabinets are made of MDF and complemented with aluminum for maximum durability. The manufacturer also focused on separate internal cameras and ports (at the rear) for each of the woofers.
The two-way shelf B600 with a phase inverter received one 6.5-inch woofer and one-inch titanium tweeter. According to the company, the design of the speakers and emitters are designed for a high level of sound pressure without compression and distortion. Like the older model, the B600 received an aluminum insert in the front and a special base from IsoAcoustics.
PSB recommended the new Synchrony for both classic stereo setups and multichannel systems. The company drew attention to the fact that the T600 and B600 speakers will be a good addition (or basis) for a professional sound system based on the installation acoustics of the PWM series.
Both systems are available in both natural wood finishes and high-gloss finishes. In the US, sales of new speakers will start in June. Pair of T600 cost $8,000, and for a pair of B600 — $2,500.
