Press release | At Rocky Mountain Audio Fest 2019, PS Audio will present our latest state-of-the-art components in the Homestead 2 room at the new Gaylord Rockies Resort & Convention Center.

The demo system will feature the final pre-production prototypes of the PS Audio AN3 speakers. The configuration and driver complement of the AN3 have been completely revised from the prototype shown at Axpona earlier this year. In the latest iteration, all drivers, crossovers, DSP, crossover and amplification were designed by Chris Brunhaver, Senior Loudspeaker Design Engineer at PS, and are custom-built exclusively for PS.

The AN3 features coaxial planar magnetic midrange and tweeter drivers, bespoke midbass coupler and woofer/subwoofer drivers with massive magnet assemblies and state-of-the-art inert cone assemblies,with the subwoofer driven by a built-in 700-watt amplifier. Our own DSP program aids installation in any room. The cabinet has been divided into two assemblies – mid/tweeter and midbass/sub-bass/amp/DSP – for ease of shipping and assembly. MSRP of the AN3 has yet to be determined, but we expect the $15-20k range.

The AN series is based upon the work of our friend and mentor Arnie Nudell, and will eventually include 3 models. The AN3 will be the smallest and least expensive, followed by the AN2 and AN1. The AN1 will be a massive line-source loudspeaker designed as the ultimate expression of Arnie's work, and a fitting replacement for and successor to the Infinity IRS Vs, which have served as our reference loudspeakers for years. There will also be three models of Stellar loudspeakers, designed to emulate the sound quality of the AN series, at lower price-points.

Lead designer Chris Brunhaver will be present to answer questions regarding the AN3s and other upcoming speakers.

We'll also be playing records through the new Stellar Phono Preamp. Lead designer, Senior Analog Engineer Darren Myers will be on hand to answer questions about the unit, which features all discrete FET circuitry, passive RIAA equalization, a massive power supply, and variable loading for moving coil cartridges.
