Ps audio aspen FR 30 Loudspeakers

Having bought several upper end products from p.s audio in the past such as their flagship dac   Parts quality inside were Average at best.   I am looking at New Loudspeakers and having over 40 years in audio and owning a Audio Store  to me a 🚩 flag is when you won’t should the Critical Xover inside which is the ♥️ orthe 🧠 of the speaker ,  at $28,500   The speaker should be shown inside and out , and if a company uses the term proprietary drivers or Xover parts ,that means nothing special I except the lofty $$ price tag.  Having modded Loudspeakers for myself and others for over 20 years ,know first hand most mags  take many cost cutting short cuts . It’s up to the mfg to Prove to the buyer they are worthy,Especially a totally new item , they specialize in electronics ,Not Loudspeakers .  Unless you can see everything about the drivers, and Xover and parts quality ,then most likely parts are made in China or close to it ,in reality less then $8k into the total build ,  look at a Wilson Sabrina ,Magico, B&W , they all disclose their build designs . Just ge careful, if you can’t see all your answers, they buy with ⚠️ Caution ⚠️ 


"proprietary drivers or Xover parts" just means they (PS Audio) made them. Not that big of a deal.

I don't believe most any "audiophile" company are using quality parts.  There are few that use the finest in speakers in crossovers which need fast response such as Audio Note, Audyn, Dueland, Mundorf, Goertz, Jantzen and others.  The PCB boards are garbage for most also.  GR-Research has made the high end look like a mockery of slap together products.  PS Audio is the same.  Margins are the only interest and product ingenuity has stalled in audio with rare exception.  Drivers are already made, or to order, crossovers are the worst of the worst and advancements in active systems is almost dead save companies such as ATC and few others.  Sadly, PS Audio is a failure in high fidelity as it is in for maximizing profits.
