The Synchrony One is PSB's top-of-line model in their flagship Synchrony line. It's carefully engineered to produce absolutely natural sound, whether you're listening to movie soundtracks or stereo music. Your eyes will appreciate this speaker's simple, sophisticated looks, and your ears will appreciate PSB's precise driver design.
"According to my value system for loudspeakers honest octave-to-octave balance, precise imaging, expansive spatial accuracy, freedom from dynamic compression, and absence of coloration PSB's Synchronys are among the best loudspeakers I've auditioned in my studio in several years. You could easily spend substantially more and do no better, or not as well. Synchrony was definitely worth the wait."

Unique, five-driver array produces smooth sound
Synchrony tower speakers are internally divided into three distinct chambers separating the woofers, for cleaner sound.
Great sound begins with quality driver materials
The 1" titanium dome tweeter is carefully crafted to produce smooth, accurate highs free from distortion and grain. The midrange and woofer cones are made of fine-weave fiberglass, which creates a stiff, self-damping cone. Whether you enjoy intense action flicks or smooth jazz, these woofers can handle pretty much anything you throw at them. You'll hear exceptionally clean mids with excellent detail and tonal accuracy. Plus, the three smaller woofers effectively move as much air combined as a single woofer several times their size, allowing them to produce surprisingly deep and very precise bass for a speaker this size.
Extra-large voice coils and virtually distortion-free motor structures help preserve clarity and detail. Plus the rigid, cast aluminum baskets are magnetically inert for maximum efficiency. It all adds up to superbly stable and accurate stereo imaging that'll pull you further into the soundstage than most other speakers do.
Uniform sound from top to bottom
The Synchrony One uses a five-driver array made up of three woofers, a midrange, and a tweeter. Unlike other speakers, the tweeter sits just below the top woofer and midrange in a unique arrangement that's characteristic of PSB's high-end speakers. Having the tweeter positioned lower along the baffle helps you experience the full sonic range from low to high, whether you're seated or standing. The three woofers are also strategically placed along the full length of the baffle, allowing for more consistent sound dispersion between them.
The woofers use lightweight, rigid fine-weave fiberglass cones for exceptionally smooth response.
The tweeter uses a high-flux neodymium magnet to maintain clear, accurate highs, even during dynamic peaks like explosions or cymbal crashes.
Top-notch crossover ensures optimal sound dispersion
PSB's years of design experience and tireless testing at the National Research Council in Canada have led to a superior crossover design. The high-quality components are carefully picked to create the fourth-order crossovers that go into Synchrony speakers. Meticulous engineering ensures minimal driver overlap, with precisely chosen crossover points to maintain proper dispersion. The result is a smooth frequency response over a wide "sweet-spot."
A solid cabinet with a luxurious, real-wood veneer finish
Extruded aluminum front and back panels hold the curved, seven-layered side panels in place, creating an incredibly rigid, acoustically inert cabinet.
The Synchrony One's heavy, rigid cabinet helps eliminate vibrations to maintain the speaker's natural sound. The double-walled aluminum front and back cabinet surfaces hold the curved side panels in place. Each side panel is constructed using seven layers of MDF, each one individually laminated to improve the panel's stiffness and absorb sonic energy that might otherwise color the sound. The top and side panels are clad in real wood veneer that's hand selected for its beauty and quality.
