Roland showed a new line of digital monitors at the NAMM show, the DM-20, DM-10, and DM-2100. These monitors are smaller in size and price compared to Roland's DS-30/50/90 series monitors. All the DM series monitors support 24/96, and have both optical and SPDIF inputs as well as analog RCA inputs. The DM-20 lists for $289 and features a powered two-way bass reflex enclosure with 20 watts of power per side. The DM-20 is magnetically shielded, and has independent transformers and power amps for each speaker cabinet. One of the speakers serves as the master for both, and features volume, treble and bass controls on the front panel, as well as a headphone output. Power switches are also on the front panel. The DM-10 predictably has the same features as the DM-20 but with 10 watts of power per side and minus the independent transformers and power amps per side. The DM-2100 is a 2.1 system, with two 15 watt satellite speakers and a 50 watt subwoofer. It also has digital inputs, and the rest of the features are similar to the DM-20 and DM-10. These monitors, especially the DM-20's, could be well suited for use as computer desktop speakers, near fields in small rooms or home studios, in surround sound systems, and even bookshelf speakers for home stereo systems. As far as surround, it’s fairly common for studios to spend more money on a couple of monitors for L/R, and then get smaller aqnd less pricey speakers for center and the two rears. These could fit that bill in small studios that have an eye on their budget. Availability is later in the first quarter. Albert
