The perfect journey in your studio

Only you know where your story begins, and who knows where it will take you? While the path may be shrouded in mystery, at least the sound is clear as day – with the A215-M.

Think of mastering monitors. Now strip away their bulk, but retain the sonic quality and reduce its appearance to an elegant floor-standing speaker. What you are imagining now is the A215-M, a very compact yet infinitely capable mastering monitor. It delivers the sound that has earned PSI Audio the respect of sound professionals all around the world with all the precision and detail required for mastering. It may be its sleek exterior design, but listening to the A215-M makes the speaker disappear and the music stand on its own – ready for you to delve right in.

“The A215-M surprises in its capacity to deliver a very broad bandwidth with an increadible SPL, making the add of a subwoofer completely useless.

In the bass range, the A215-M showed itself to be confident, with contoured, dry depths that, despite the bass reflex design, left the impression of the signature of a closed monitor.”

Fritz Fey, Studio Magazin – Germany

True D’Appolito design

The A215-M uses a D’Appolito configuration of 2 woofers, one above and one underneath the tweeter which creates a point source system with reduced dispersion on the vertical plane.

This is typically well suited for mastering rooms or living rooms where reflection on floor and ceiling are best when minimised.

Expand the bottom end

Technically, the A215-M does not need a supporting subwoofer. It already reaches low enough to be rightfully called a full-range system. However, by adding a Sub A125-M or Sub A225-M, not only do the low frequencies benefit from the added power, but midrange clarity can also be further enhanced.
The addition of a subwoofer might not dramatically change the performance of the A215-M, but it will let the system as a whole perform at its best.
