The NSMT PSM Professional Studio Monitor, the Super-Monitor, AKA Pharaoh Saunders Monitor, is a two-way loudspeaker that throws an incredible soundstage and handles dynamics with ease that's on par with most floor standing loudspeakers. It has a very neutral frequency response over its entire operating range. And its bass extension meets the THX standard for subwoofers.

 

From the dawn of the Stereophonic age, two-way monitors have been some of the purest loudspeakers, because of their tonal and timbral accuracy, and because of their imaging and accurate spatial presentation. Well designed two-way monitors provide a special window into a musical soundstage that other designs rarely realize.

 

However, the magic of two-way monitors is often limited by mediocre bass extension and constricted dynamic performance.

 

To solve these problems, we combine acoustic suspension and folded eighth-wave transmission line designs into a single compact cabinet to deliver the spatial, tonal and timbral qualities of the best two-way minimonitors and the bass extension of floor standing loudspeakers.

 

By combining a transmission line design with an acoustic suspension line design the PSM-SE exhibits the best performance qualities of both designs while avoiding the limitations of each. The PSM produces bass that is more neutral, more linear and more extended. And imaging and soundstaging are on par with the very best minimonitors.

 

This innovative cabinet design measures only 7.5 inches wide by 16 inches deep by 24 inches high which allows the PSM to deliver the best imaging, soundstaging, and bass response in the most compact package.

 

No cost is spared in the design and execution of the PSM. Only the highest quality drivers and components are used. The PSM-SE is unshielded and uses an excellent soft dome tweeter and special TPX or black poly woofers. TPX, although expensive, is one of the best sounding cone materials available. The standard PSM uses a shielded poly cone version of the same woofer and the same tweeter.

 

To complement the performance of the drivers, we use the highest quality crossover components, wires, and Superior brand insulated terminals mounted on a stepped terminal cup. Only high quality capacitors and air core perfect lay inductors are used in the crossovers. For internal wiring, silver plated oxygen-free copper is used to the tweeter and multi-strand oxygen free copper is used to the woofers. 

 

The PSM-SE is simply one of the best loudspeakers you will hear.
