    Behind the Alpha Series


    First designed and manufactured in a small Canadian town in 1991, the Alpha Series started with the simple idea of creating affordable speakers that were focused purely on performance. With passion and dedication in pursuit of a natural sounding speaker, and by leveraging almost 50 years of research conducted at the Canadian National Research Council, the Alphas are known as one of the world’s most iconic speakers and are still the reference benchmark for entry-level hi-fi speakers today.

    Flexible and convenient


    Just like its smaller brother, the AM3, these powered bookshelf speakers are effortless to set up and use. There’s no amplifier to hook up or apps to download. Streaming your favourite music from your devices is easy thanks to aptX Bluetooth – simply pair and play. Enjoy connecting them to your computer or TV for clear, natural sound. The AM5 even features several sound modes, allowing you to accentuate dialogue, soundstage and more. Vinyl lovers will appreciate the dedicated RCA phono input. Where desired, use the sub output to add a subwoofer for even deeper bass.

    Matched components, unmatched performance


    Leveraging amplification expertise from our sister brands provided the PSB design team the considerable advantage of designing a speaker for a known amplifier. By adding the power of digital signal processing, frequency response, bass extension and output are optimized to a remarkable level of performance. Very few powered speakers share intellectual resources of this magnitude, making the Alpha AM5 a standout in the crowd of powered speakers. A renowned amplifier company and speaker company perfecting the powered speaker is truly a match made in acoustic heaven.

    Simple, timeless design



    Featuring acoustically transparent detachable magnetic grilles in a choice of matte black or matte white finish, the AM5 offers a simple and timeless design that seamlessly blends into any décor. The elegant cabinet design lends itself to a wide variety of placement options, from desktop to bookshelf, or even stand mount.
