Praise for the PSB Imagine T from The Absolute Sound

"Tonally neutral and dynamically turbocharged, this short two-and-a-half-way tower offers a balance of audio virtues that is classic PSB. From the vivid midrange to the powerful midbass, nothing seems out of joint-and that goes for the T's seamless curved enclosure. Not as nuanced as the Synchrony but more than good enough to make you feel like a big spender."

Precise driver design for natural sound


The drivers are mounted flush with the smooth front baffles, for improved sound dispersion.

The Imagine T features a highly accurate 1" titanium dome tweeter that produces smooth, sparkling highs. The 5-1/4" woofers use proprietary ceramic-filled polypropylene cones, which makes them very stiff and light. The resulting midrange is clean and balanced, with tight bass response. A highly efficient motor structure with a unique compound magnet helps reduce audible distortion.


PSB's Imagine speakers feature acoustically inert enclosures, with seamless, unbroken surfaces that are beautiful to look at.

Solid, elegantly curved cabinets with a real-wood veneer finish

All Imagine speakers have smooth, 1-1/2" thick front baffles that blend almost seamlessly with the seven-layer laminated MDF side, top, and bottom panels. Plus, the heavy internal bracing ensures an impressively solid, acoustically inert enclosure. The top, side, and bottom panels are clad in real wood veneer that's hand selected for its beauty and quality.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I'm quite pleased with these speakers. On great recordings they sound rich, clear, clean and accurate over the whole frequency spectrum. When I compare them to my old DCM time windows, I find that they seem to lack a little crispness and sparkle.

I'm driving these with a Marantz PM8005 which is adequate to achieve moderately loud sound levels in a 16x18 ft room. It, too, is reputed to impart a little warmth to the sound. The combination makes cymbal strikes and crisp piano notes seem a little soft-edged. Listening to Mistislav Rostropovitch and Rudolf Sorkin play Dvorak's cello concerto in D minor, for example, I was struck with how rich the sound of the cello was. It really conveyed the sense that the tone of this instrument may be among the most beautiful and musical of all instruments. This is a sense I never got with the Time Windows. On the other hand, Sorkin's piano playing seemed a little muffled, muted, soft: still lovely, but not at all crisp. This balance was not what I was used to hearing in this recording; but I imagine that it is a great deal closer to the intent of the DG recording engineers.

The clocks' chimes in Pink Floyd's Dark side of the moon sound hyperrealistic. And the rest of the track sounds terrific. In a live recording of Eagle's Hotel California, the slightest nuance of the guitar strings' vibration was captured and delivered accurately.

Pros: Accurate, natural - sounding, slightly warm in sound color, compact, beautiful black piano finish, great build quality, nice binding posts,

Cons: Not quite as crisp and sharp as some.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought the PSB Imagine T without every hearing them. A bit of a gamble on my part but after some soul searching and research made the leap. I was told at Crutchfield to allow a burn-in time to reach optimal sound. I was pleasantly surprised how rich the sound was out of the box. I like many generes of music. I love the way the highs, mid range and bass each remain clear without any loss in clarity in complex pieces of music. I purchased as a family gift in our household, as I wanted quailty sound and my wife a a piece of complimentary furniture to our room. Luckily these speakers fit both aspirations perfectly. RE

Pros: The cabinet in dark cherry matched our hard wood floors and other pieces of furniture in our living room. The tower design look great next to our big screen TV. The sound reroduction is clear and concise.

Cons: You will need to high power amp to bring full spectrum to music fully. The cleaner your amp the better you will reach the sweet spot. A tad bit pricey but if you enjoy music it is a good investment in your ears.

Image vs. Imagine

Written By Romarin, California on Saturday, September 17, 2011

Have not heard the synchrony line of PSB speakers but the Imagine is so much better than the Image that the smallest and cheapest Imagine is better than the the top of the line Image. And the image isn't a bad speaker but I couldn't see throwing good money after bad and that's what you'd be doing buying an Image. As soon as you heard the Imagine you'd regret the day you wasted your money on the lesser speaker. Of course if the Image is all you can afford then you could do a whole lot worse for the money.
