PS Audio AN3
Having a complete PS Audio music system, from the AC wall socket to our ears, has long been a dream that was finally realized earlier this month at Chicago’s Axpona high-end audio show. Thousands of audiophiles visited our room to hear the new speakers.
The prototype AN3 loudspeakers, powered by a pair of P20 Power Plants feeding BHK Signature 300 monoblocks and fed from a Power Plant 15 lighting up a DirectStream DAC and BHK Signature preamplifier, were recieved as we had hoped.
Stereophile editor emeritus, John Atkinson, commented “… listening to a James Taylor track the sound of the AN3 prototypes was full-range, clean, with superbly stable imaging.”
Part Time Audiophile’s Scott Hull remarked, “What I heard from these bottom-of-their-line loudspeakers was remarkable. Fleshy, voluptuous, fullsome, room-filling, musical sound. There was plenty of light and air, but even in these lightweight, open-cell, cube-like caverns, the bass was decidedly of the flex-your-chest variety.”
Fidelity Magazine’s Danny Kaey wrote: “PS Audio was on hand to show off their new AN-3 loudspeakers. Delightful, open, airy and fantastic sounding.”
This 4-way speaker system prototype will be updated to something much closer to its actual production version for the upcoming RMAF in September so, for those attending the show, you’ll be able to enjoy what we hope will be the production version.
We are currently scheduled to launch the AN3 for sale in the first quarter of 2020, with a beta test series hopefully around Christmas time this year. Projected price per pair, $15,000.
