“I chose the PSI Audio – A17-M monitors because I wanted deadly accurate monitors for composing and mixing for long periods of time. Before PSI Audio, I had trouble getting what was mentioned, having tried many other brands. They are very musical but accurate, and I find them super easy and inspiring to work with.”Marko Maksimovic, music composer

A17-M at Big Orange

“I found the top end of the new A17-M monitors to be incredibly open, dimensional and ultra-detailed, yet lovely and natural. The low-end presentation could be what really impresses me most about these monitors.”

Perfect Stereo Image

Stereo is more than just volume differences between the left and right channels. Phase relations are paramount to determine the accurate position of a signal in the acoustic space – and hence equally important in the development of PSI Audio speakers. The accurate phase alignment provided by PSI Audio CPR technology recreates the vivid spatial listening experience as it was intended. Instrument placement, reverb envelopes, even compression artefacts are easy to identify with the phase-corrected reproduction of PSI Audio speakers.

Handmade tweeter

What do you do when you cannot find a driver appropriate for the sonic accuracy you want to achieve with your speaker? At PSI Audio, we decided to just build our own then.

The tweeter used in the A17-M is unique, our own development and built by hand in our manufacture in Switzerland. Superior to any market-bought solutions, our tweeter offers unparalleled clarity, subtlety and fidelity. It took a lot of time and effort to create this tweeter – certainly a lot more than buying one from an international supplier would have.

But the result is absolutely worth it.

Extend the low frequencies and add power

Use one of PSI Audio’s Subwoofer / LFE to add more energy and low end to your A17-M:

– Our compact Sub A125-M


– our full range Sub A225-M

Thanks to our Roll-Off technology, both Sub A125-M & Sub A225-M are designed to perfectly match the A17-M.
