The perfect immersion in your studio

Only you know where your story begins, and who knows where it will take you? The A214-M can help you define that “where” – by enhancing your surround setup with an optimised centre speaker.

The sound that has earned PSI Audio the respect of audio professionals all around the world is primarily defined by accuracy and hence its natural reproduction, playing back sound without altering it. The A214-M perfectly translates these qualities into a speaker ideally suited for the central position in immersive audio applications. Get all the fine details of the voices in the dialogue, hear that little rasp, that hint of a lisp introduced by the compressor. Start hearing if anything is just slightly off in the voices immediately, identify the source and create better results in less time. The A214-M gives you all the information you need.

“The A214-M is the perfect solution for a center speaker in my setup.

The horizontal design leaves enough space for a large display.

In addition, there is of course the outstanding sonic precision, as you would expect from PSI Audio.”

Christian Schäppi, Soundengineer.ch

True D’Apollito

The 214-M was developed to be a compact central speaker with sound pressure maximized more than bandwidth.
A tweeter and 2 woofers in D’Apploito configuration in an extremely compact cabinet but capable of astonishing sound pressure levels.

A214-M – The perfect monitor for surround setups

The A214-M is primarily designed as a centre speaker for surround systems. Its power is optimized to satisfy the requirements of post-production and film mixing suites. The small cabinet allows it to be used in surround systems where space is and issue such as below a screen.

A214-M – Who is it for?

Wherever a centre speaker is required, that is where the A214-M belongs. Surround mixing setups of any sort from 5.1 systems to sophisticated immersive audio constructions, a centre speaker is usually required. The A214-M fills this very position perfectly and integrates well with other PSI Audio speakers to create a consistent listening line-up.
