hmmmm you might have something! well not sure how much details I can give but imgoing to ask them first just to be sure. They sound like another winner!!!!!!!
post #3184 of 3312
ill keep everyone posted. once the design is set in stone ill give more details but for now they have exactly the capabilities that im looking for and will go very well with the Triaxes. Once everyone gets details youll see what I mean, itll be soon though biggrin.gif

I'll cetainly post my experience when I get it.

Thanks,
Looking forward for your feedback.

Just a quick initial report since I haven't had much time to play anything....

The Xantech AC1 seems well built and so far is working fine. I've played some hard hitting/bass heavy music with no issues. Later today I hope to try Titan AE to make sure the AC1's protection circuit doesn't trip.

I do notice that the Triax makes a bit of a thump noise when powered off. However, it's always done this if I powered it off so is not related to using the AC1.

No issues playing the opening scene nor the ice field scene in Titan AE (DTS track). Seriously, this DVD is must have sub demo material! biggrin.gif

I don't think the AC1 is any more likely to trip than a standard 15amp household circuit. I recommend it as an option for anyone looking for a 12v trigger device to power on/off their Triax. smile.gif

Btw, all my equipment, including the Triax and 3 amps (a 5 channel amp, 250wpc, and 2 plate amps in my mains, 300w each) are on the same 15amp circuit and I've never tripped the breaker.

Hey friend! Man just got done working a 98 hour week last week and probay an 85 hour week this time. Weve been busy so im getting on that money smile.gif . In the next couple days im going to check on some updates and post on how its going. So far PSA is going to impress once again! smile.gif
post #3192 of 3312
I used to work hours like that too... I am so glad i don't have to anymore!
post #3193 of 3312
Last night I watched Ender's Game, not a good movie, good for kids, but got some serious low hz tracks.
Man the Triax was passing thru those low end frequencies without a hiccup.
I have a big and heavy couch. While it was fully occupied, Triax made that couch shaking during those low frequencies.
It was fun.

Spoke to TOM the other day. so some time next month the new line of PSA HT speakers will be finalized and everyone can then know the exact specs and details. after that they will begin a production run and will start ordering all the parts. its possible that ill have the first set ever made in my hands within a couple months. So far for the price they are planning to let these beasts go for will be amazing!!!!!!!!!

Are you able to say if they'll top the JTR Noesis 212s?

Well lets put it this way, if you compare PSA's new line of speakers to JTR's 228's, this might be what itd look like.

- Price / PSA will have a much lower price!

- Driver size / PSA may end up using larger drivers

- speaker sensitivity / may end up the same

- PSA's line will have all matching speakers for a 5ch, 7ch, 9ch, ect. they will all be identical which is another idea that im loving!

this would be some possible comparisons, as far as exact specs we wont know until theyre finalized which maybe in 3 or 4 weeks. whats going to make these winners is that for the price, one can have a setup that would go beyond most peoples' needs for a very good price. offcourse the JTR's 212's are beasts of their own, unless a person wanted to go to the extreme, PSA's line will get the job done without hurting the pocket. along with their subwoofer lines and great prices, these HT speakers will complement each other very well. For someone like me, ill end up spending less on a set of 5 than I spent on my current HT speakers and gain much more in capabilities. Its a winner in my case! Tom has given hints of this new line theyre working on and he has said that there can be some last minutes changes in the design before theyre are finalized but so far theyre looking good!!! biggrin.gif

ughhh I need a bigger place living in an apartment sucks. It also sucks lacking funds....

Still really interested to see what kind of speakers PSA can offer.
post #3198 of 3312
You know I'm just sitting here thinking are we seeing a divergence of speakers like we did with subs when Internet direct subs really took off? I mean if we think about outside of JL, Velodyne, Paradigm and a few others there aren't many worth while subs that aren't ungodly expensive and are tiny.

There seems to have been a switch from small and high powered (JL / Velodyne style) to moderate to large, and / or high powered ( SubMersive HP, Triax, Captivator, ecete)

I'm starting to wonder if where heading the same way for speakers. Going back to high sensitivity large driver speakers and away from the stylish yet inefficient modern speakers. For example speakers like the JTRs, Seaton catalyst , and now PSA). At least at the high end maybe.


In a way this makes sense speakers had to catch up with sub woofers eventually.

One possibility that might work for some people is that if a person could sell their current HT speakers for a decent price, they might be able to recooperate most of the funds to upgrade to PSA's new speaker line. This along with maybe throwing in a part of income tax return might be some ideas to work with until then. Im really interested in the amazing playback that ill get with running identical speakers throughout the room, this will def improve sound for when you wanna play music on multi ch and also for movies these speakers should get you a nice smooth transition from the HT speakers to the subs in the mid to low ranges. Id expect a person would see some nice improvements in REW when tweaking in full range. Its awesome that ill have the honor of getting the first ones made, PSA is awesome!!

This would make sense! It seems that if someone had a goal to mimic a theater experience in their own home that youd need the size and capabilities to achieve satisfaction. After battling with my first HT setup I finally got to where I wanted in the bass department by purchasing beefy, high powered subs that finally made lows come alive like they should. Now ive realized that my HT speakers are not nearly beefy enough to reproduce the mids that I need so it makes sense to skip the looks and go for what sounds the best. Afterall the sound and capabilities should be whats important for creating an over the top home experience. biggrin.gif

Hi Black. I'm looking forward to reading your impressions of the new PSA speakers. smile.gif

You're braver than me. Speaker preference is such a personal thing. I can't imagine buying speakers without hearing them first. redface.gif

The 228HTs are 4ohm and darned if that 4520CI, doesn't do 4ohm. biggrin.gif

Sweet!

Thanks for the update. I'm too old for the oil fields, so I'll just have to live with what we have.....but in a younger life. biggrin.gif

The humanity of it all.....tongue.gif

I'm still back at huge floor standing speakers vs little speakers on tall, thin pedestals, augmented by kickbutt subwoofers. What slows me down, a set of five 228HTs is the price of a decent used Kia, which is about what we paid for our current set of five speakers.

(once is enough, don't want any)

I understand but you did buy your subs without listening... Didn't you?

I feel good blind buying the first set, mainly because PSA impressed me with the Triaxes so much that im confident theyll come through again. Also with the current details and the price, im positive itll be a big step up from my Bowers and Wilkins and with a cheaper price! If I was working on my next build id probably justify going with some JTR 212's all around but given the fact that this is just a bedroom setup, the PSA line will complete my setup to where it wont have any lingering weaknesses and be running at hurricane force hehehehehe biggrin.gif

Yeah the JTRs are a force of their own, insane capabilities. I think PSA's strength comes with their awesome value when comparing price verse quality and capabilities. Since I also dont want to keep blowing too much $, they sure help out by getting me where I want and feeling good at the end of the day smile.gif
