"The best speaker I've ever heard in this price range*"

The ground-breaking Aspen series of loudspeakers sets new standards for what is possible in home audio reproduction. Now, with the introduction of our full range 2-way stand mount speaker, the Aspen FR5, it is finally possible to bring the concert hall to any small to medium sized room.

The Aspen loudspeaker series represents the culmination of 50 years of industry experience; learning in intimate detail what works and what does not; what it takes for a loudspeaker to disappear and leave only the magic of the music; designing a no-compromise phase-correct crossover; constructing a cabinet that does not color the sound; crafting a speaker that is easily driven with any decent power amplifier, and when not even the most advanced driver manufacturer’s products are good enough to meet our exacting standards, designing woofers, radiators, and tweeters from scratch. In all respects, the FR5 will transcend your expectations of what an affordable stand mount loudspeaker can do.

No longer do you have to compromise.

Breathtaking to listen to, beautiful to behold, fits in any small to medium sized room, with bass that will astound you, the Aspen FR5 is a dream come true.

The first reviews are in

From the very first showing of the FR5s at the Axpona HiFi show, reviewers and music lovers alike fell in love with them. See what Jay Lee of Jay's Iyagi on YouTube had to say in this video.

Prepare to be amazed

The Aspen FR5 stand mount loudspeakers are extraordinary performers delivering powerful and dynamic sound with extended bass even in larger rooms. Utilizing innovative new technologies like viscoelastic damping sheets between the bracing and cabinet side walls, a newly-designed 6.5-inch cast frame midrange/woofer made from Curv woven polypropylene, and a state-of-the-art air core and film cap crossover, the FR5 delivers the same quality of extraordinary musical realism as the larger Aspen Series models, in a compact design that fits easily into smaller and medium-sized rooms.

I was taken aback by what I heard

Hear what reviewer Jay of Jay’s Audio had to say about his first listen to the incredible Aspen FR5. Watch as he searches for the non-existent subwoofer on these powerful stand mount wonders.
  • Design

    The FR5 joins the ranks of a rare handful of 2-way full-range speakers that can honestly cover the frequency range of 35Hz to beyond 20kHz with grace, dynamics, slam, and low distortion—and work in most small to medium-sized room. Within moments of installing your new Aspen FR5 loudspeakers, you'll instantly be transported to a new level of musical ecstacy. What's captured on the disc is exactly what you'll hear with a greater resolution than most have ever experienced. Grace, beauty, PRaT, power, and a musicality that is rare amongst 5 figure offerings from other manufacturers await owners of the Aspen FR5. That this speaker is financially within anyone's budget makes it a miracle.

  • Application

    Loudspeakers are part of the family. With their presence, they grace our homes and living areas by bringing the joy of music into our lives. Unlike the electronics that drive them, most loudspeakers depend on proper placement and optimized room parameters to perform their best. The Aspen FR5, however, is designed to more easily fit into any living environment and perform at its best with a minimum of setup hassles and a maximum of options. While the FR5, like all high-performance speakers, appreciates some breathing room between them and the front wall, placement in the room for best performance is a snap. Using the included step-by-step guide and CD, setup, from unboxing to playing music, happens easily in a few short hours.

    Technology

    By far the most important piece in the HiFi chain is the loudspeaker. If the speaker cannot reproduce what it is fed from the electronic chain, the missing musical information is forever lost. To achieve all that music demands, over the years, loudspeaker designers have tried to leverage every trick in the book: electrostats for details, conventional drivers for dynamics, planars for transparency, ribbons, domes, horns, open baffles, bipoles, dipoles. The list is endless and the choices and their inevitable sonic compromises daunting. With close to 50 years under our collective belts, we at PS Audio are committed to designing the perfect loudspeakers for every application, room size, and budgets. In the Aspen series we start with the FR30, then move to the FR20, the FR10, and finally the FR5. Each is a full range state-of-the-art loudspeaker that covers the range of possibilities from small to large rooms and to meet every budget need. The FR5 will fit into every small to medium sized room and provide potent bass output and extension for a stand mounted speaker. For the upper end, the FR5 employs the same Aspen planar tweeter as found in both the FR20 and FR30. Without question, the Aspen FR5 is the perfect loudspeaker for any small to medium-sized room and, certainly, any budget. Why compromise? Go for the best.

    Wow! Hard to believe

    I first heard them at Axpona. I thought the bigger FR30s were playing instead of these small jewels. Unbelievable. Thank you for making something anyone can afford and can’t afford to be without.
