Selling a pair of PSB SPEAKERS CENTURY 600I FLOORSTANDING SPEAKERS. All drivers in excellent condition, cabinets have a few small issues that can be easily touched up. Grills are good and both PSB badges are intact.
These come from a period when PSB was turning out world class speakers. Because they were in effect heavily subsidized by the government through the use of NRC labs and equipment, they provided performance completely out of line with their price point. Combined with the fact these were made in Canada when the competition had to pay for shipping from the US or the UK they offered far better value than the imports.
The PSB 600 retailed for $699/pr and they could easily take on imported speakers up to $1200/pr and beyond. I used to sell these when they were current and we found out these were Paul Barton's favorite in the lineup.
As you can see in the pictures these are quite slim but deep, so they are a good size. They are also quite heavy. The cabinets are massively braced. You can just make out the screws holding the three sets of braces on the back, in addition to the other screws used to hold the recessed back panel which makes for a very inert assembly. Nice gold plated, 5 way binding posts are used.
