The Alpha iQ Streaming Powered Speakers with BluOS make it easy to enjoy PSB’s signature “True to Nature” sound from your favorite streaming services and legacy sources—without cable clutter. The two speakers have 180W of built-in amplification and a network streamer based on the award-winning BluOS multi-room music platform. Plug the speakers into power outlets, then connect the Alpha iQ to your home using the friendly BluOS Controller app. Now you can play music from more than 20 streaming services and share that music over your home network with up to 63 other BluOS-enabled components. In addition to Apple AirPlay 2 support and Bluetooth connectivity, the Alpha iQ has inputs for a wide array of sources, so you can connect a turntable, TV, disc player, and game console.
Comprising two wireless bookshelf speakers with built-in amplifiers, PSB’s Alpha iQ is an all-in-one audio system for the streaming age. There’s no need to clutter your living space with speaker cables. The left and right speakers communicate via a wireless link that can cover most rooms in an average-size home without delays or latency, so music stays synched and clear regardless of speaker placement.
The BluOS network streamer provides access to more than 20 streaming services, including several that offer lossless and high-resolution audio, such as Amazon Music, Deezer, Idagio, Qobuz, and Tidal. The Alpha iQ supports Apple AirPlay 2, so you can stream audio from any app on an iPhone, iPad, or Mac. Spotify Connect and Tidal Connect are also supported, so you can cue up music in the apps for those services then transfer playback to the Alpha iQ.
The Alpha iQ has an audiophile-grade DAC that supports high-resolution audio resolution to 24-bit/192kHz, and has full MQA decoding and rendering capability for high-res streaming from Tidal. BluOS also gives you access to hundreds of Internet radio stations around the world, including Radio Paradise, which offers four stations with MQA-encoded hi-res music.
You can listen through the Alpha iQ alone or share your music over your home network with as many as 63 other BluOS-enabled devices.
