Master Reference



This newest edition of the legendary PBN Master Reference has reset the bar for excellence. Balancing startling power with nuanced detail, it unleashes majestic orchestral salvos while delicately rendering the most subtle passages. Its twin 18” auditorium-grade subwoofers effortlessly deliver deeply felt low-end bass, while the two 10” mid-woofers provide flawlessly textured mid-bass “crunch”. The full driver complement includes the world’s finest pair of mid-range drivers and an exemplary tweeter. In sum: its suite of seven audiophile-quality speakers are so precisely harmonized that the resulting aural presence is perhaps the most palpably real yet achieved. If you desire dimension, presence and “truthfulness” on a scale capable of filling a listening hall, you have now found it.

Each Master Reference speaker includes a built-in amplifier designed to work seamlessly with the drivers. The 2.25”-thick front baffle is made of select planks of solid maple – arguably the best hardwood for audiophile cabinets. Every cabinet is handcrafted with your desired veneer and finish, or customized with piano-gloss airbrushing. Inside each speaker is a brilliantly interlocked series of chambers designed for optimal sound dynamics and immersion, while erasing distortion.

In total, the Master Reference Loudspeaker is seven feet of the finest combination of acoustically engineered speakers, unparalleled circuitry and Old World-quality cabinetry. There are many who aspire to being the best...but when you audition the Master Reference, you know you are in the presence of a master.
