Over 35 years ago, a young Paul Barton began building speakers in the same workshop where his father handcrafted his childhood violin. His passion for music, experience in cabinet design, and quest to produce a better-sounding loudspeaker ultimately led to the founding of PSB speakers in 1972. Now, as the Chief Designer at PSB, Paul leads his team of talented engineers in creating world-class speakers with real-world value.
PSB's one overriding goal is to design and produce speakers that are true to nature. They have a close relationship with the National Research Council in Canada, and use the facility to extensively evaluate each of their loudspeakers in an anechoic chamber. They compare their results with real room measurements and double-blind listener preferences to ensure that each speaker sounds as true to the source as possible. This dedication to performance and hard work over the years has made PSB an award-winning speaker company, producing high-value speakers that you can count on to faithfully reproduce your music.
