PSB’s Alpha IQ Wireless Speakers Shed Drab for Dutch Orange and Tangerine Yellow

PSB Speakers releases three new finishes for the Alpha iQ, all-in-one wireless bookshelf speakers featuring built-in streaming and amplification.

PSB Alpha iQ Wireless Bookshelf Speaker Colors 2023

Canada is rather drab looking; driving through my hometown last week on vacation, two of my children remarked that Toronto was extremely beige looking and not in a good way. Loudspeakers suffer from that as well because manufacturers want their products to work when it comes to home decor — very few people want their high-end expenditure to illicit dirty looks from an angry spouse having just dropped $4,000 on a pair of loudspeakers.

PSB, which is based just outside of Toronto, has never really offered any of its speakers in a wide range of finishes or colors. KEF or Focal’s approach has never worked for the Canadian company.

Until now.

PSB Alpha iQ Wireless Bookshelf Speakers Blue

Prepare yourself for the new generation of anti-beige loudspeakers from PSB.

PSB Speakers, makers of award-winning, high-fidelity loudspeakers since 1972, announces three new finish options for the Alpha iQ, Streaming Powered Speakers with BluOS: Tangerine Yellow, Midnight Blue and Dutch Orange.

The Alpha iQ are the brand’s first wireless streaming bookshelf speakers that integrate control, source and amplification in an all-in-one system.

    That seems like a more realistic price. Thought they were a bit pricey at $2200 CAD but $1700 seems reasonable. Is this just a sale, or have they readjusted the price?

      Mike,

      I think they realized that the price was too high and readjusted.
