Fans of Canadian speakers, myself included, will rejoice in PSB’s new line of Synchrony speakers. The B600 bookshelf model sports a simple and elegant look with all new drivers, a milled aluminum front baffle, special feet from ISO Acoustics, and a carefully engineered cabinet; that all combine to deliver premium sound, high performance and excellent value. Designed by Paul Barton at Canada’s famed National Research Council labs, it represents the next evolution in a storied line of speakers.

A pair of these lovelies, along with stands, just showed up at my door finished in satin walnut veneer. The cabinets seem almost solid, they’re so well-damped, yet the speakers are surprisingly light, just 23 pounds apiece. I assembled the heavy metal stands and noted that the B600s have very large feet, not the stuck-on furniture pucks one usually sees, but a nice set of rubber isolators.

Initial impressions are very positive. The B600s deliver an impressive amount of bass for their size and just playing a few tunes while walking around the room shows they have a tremendous dispersion and a wide sound stage. The sweet spot is large enough to accommodate at least four people sitting on a couch. It’s clear these speakers are equally suited for intimate listening sessions or for entertaining a group of friends at a party. They rock and caress music with equal dexterity.

I look forward to spending many hours listening to the PSB Syncrony B600s over the next few weeks. My full review will be published here soon.
