PSB Platinum T8: $6999 / pair
Reviewer : John Atkinson review excerpts

"All through my auditioning of the Platinum T8, I kept losing sight of the fact that this speaker costs a hair under $7000/pair, making it an appropriate choice for readers who want superb sound quality at a relatively affordable price."

"...a pair of PSB Platinum T8s will rock you, whatever your tastes in music."

PSB Image B25: $449 / pair
Reviewer : Robert J. Reina review excerpts

"In my first listening sessions, it soon became apparent that I was hearing several things in the Image B25's midrange that I'd never heard from a bookshelf speaker at this price, or from any PSB speaker at any price. The entire midrange was dead neutral, liquid, and holographic—but when this was combined with an extraordinary level of detail resolution, perfectly articulate transients, and a broad, continuous, organic presentation of the entire dynamic envelope, the overall sonic picture inspired me to strip-mine my music collection for well-recorded acoustic instruments."

"I can't recall a single area where that older, more expensive speaker outperformed the Image B25—it impressed me in many areas and let me down in none. I can't think of a single other speaker for less than $500/pair that outperforms the PSB Image B25. Congratulations, Paul!"
