PSI Audio – A23M Three-Way Active Monitors
Sound On Sound Magazine
by Phil Ward
Swiss speaker gurus PSI have never failed to impress us with their technical innovations, and their latest model is no exception!
Swiss–based PSI Audio are one of a group of smaller high-end monitor manufacturers that perhaps fly somewhat under the radar of larger, higher–profile brands, but that doesn't mean that they're not highly capable engineering-led organisations. As evidenced by the new A23‑M, little could be further from the truth.
I last reviewed a PSI monitor back in the November 2013 issue when I looked at the A25‑M and, as it happens, was extremely impressed. Now, all of five years later, I'm looking at the A25‑M's new sibling, the A23‑M.
Although smaller than the A25‑M, the A23‑M still probably falls more towards the midfield monitor category than the nearfield, and in terms of both weight and size it's just about as big as I can comfortable fit in my studio room either side of my DAW. It's not really a monitor for bijou studio spaces, so be warned. It's also a monitor that demands deep pockets.
