Studio Monitor Actief 2-weg met AOI en CPR

Wanneer u precisie, accuratesse en natuurgetrouwheid in het monitorbeeld nastreeft, dan is de A17M uw monitor. Of het nu gaat om pop/rock, jazz of klassiek, de A17M geeft u de informatie die u nodig heeft. Uitstekend geschikt voor zowel surround sound monitoring als voor stereo weergave. De krachtige 2-weg versterker is voorzien van een "AOI" uitgangstrap die zorgt voor een ongekend impulsgedrag. De actieve X-over is uitgevoerd met "CPR" wat resulteert in een zeer accuraat stereobeeld.


A classic near-field precision monitor, the A17-M is the ideal entry model to the PSI Audio range. Perfectly suited for surround sound and near-field applications, the A17-M is ideal for studio application where the ultimate in precision is required. Its compact form incorporates the full range of PSI Audio's outstanding technologies.

The powerful bi-amplified output features the unique "AOI" output stages, while the active crossover, with integrated "CPR", delivers unprecedented impulse behavior – with excellent stereo imaging. The crossover is also optimized for maximum phase coherence, projecting a wide horizontal and vertical ideal listening area.

Designed to work in harmony with the full range of A series monitors the A17-M also makes ideal rear speakers in a surround sound setup, or can be developed in to a more powerful system by adding the A225-M sub – thus protecting your investment.

Na jarenlang gewerkt te hebben met Genelecs wist ik dat het tijd werd voor wat anders. Fijner voor de oren dus minder vermoeiend maar wel accuraat. Door Ulmt van der Linden werd ik terecht gewezen op deze A17-M PSI Audio monitoren. Deze speakers voldoen prima aan mijn eisen en het enige waar ik spijt van heb is dat ik ze niet jaren geleden al heb aangeschaft.

Hartelijke groet,

"My first impression after 1 hour of listening (coming from Neumann kh-120, Adam a7x and Focal Twin's):

Extremely detailed, I mean... it's really scary. At first I thought it was something wrong with the monitors, they felt super sensitve, everything just jumped out of the speakers. I guess these monitors needs a little burn-in time as well, because I could feel that the bass needed to loosen up a little. (UPDATE - After moving the monitors 4-5cm back closer to the wall the bass felt just right!). They seem very forward and "not pleasing at all" right from the start. Anyone have similar experience regarding this?

I started off with some classics: Pink Floyd, Beatles, Fleetwod Mac and so on. Floyd always sounds good wherever you play em and this time it was exception. Only thing that bothered me was the vocals that felt very bright, never heard Floyd like this before, a strange feeling. Beatles (remaster from 2009) gave me a BIG smile on my face, never really understood all the hype regarding their sound (I always loved the songs though) - But now? Oh man did they sound good! Fleetwood didn't sound as good as I expected they would, "Roumors" lacked bass in a way I didnt care for before - But again, everything was super clear and beoynd well pronunced.

I moved on with some more modern stuff. First off was Coldplay's Parachutes. Had to turn it off immediately, Chris s-sounds was just too much, they sounded really bad and the whole album felt very compressed. I guess I'll never listen to them again on these speakers :(

Next up was Bon Iver - For Emma: Very nice depth and sound stage, I could "feel the wood" in the same way I could feel and touch the kick drum on Beatles remaster.

From there I just played some other stuff like Sparklehorse (very wide, deep and airy), Cracker (too bright around 2khz) etc. Haven't dare to turn on Arcade fire's Suburbs, it WILL sound like shit (Update - Actually the record sounded ok, but not more). Maybe their old records will work.

So my fist impression sums up like this:

Extremely detailed monitors, forward sounding and VERY VERY unforgiving. Right off the bat I feel a little worried that my mixes will turn out too dark and muddy, because you hear everything, like you have a magnifying glass from 1 cm distance when you listen. (Update - The first mix didn't turn out muddy at all, rather the opposite; very clean, breathing and transparent sounding!). I'm one VERY happy customer.

Day 1:

After one more day of mixing I must also add that the stereo image is superb. You can easily hear a 5-10% pan - almost like you are wearing headphones. When listening to some more tracks from Beach House, Beck, Michael Jackson and so and I begin hear things I never heard before. The bass is super defined and precise. Excellent!

Day 2:
Reverb, reverb, reverb... it's so easy to hear it now!"

All the best from Sweden
