These new flagship two-way active digital reference monitors from Roland come in three sizes: The DS-5 is a 45-watt, 5-inch two-way system; the DS-7 is a 60-watt 6.5-inch two-way system; and the DS-8 is a 120-watt, 8-inch two-way system. Each model exhibits excellent stereo imaging and a consistent 'flat' frequency response in near field listening environments. The 24-bit, up to 192 kHz digital specification produces a smooth response for less chance of ear fatigue during extended critical listening sessions. According to Roland "deliver superb sound quality with precise imaging and low coloration. Ideally suited for professional, project and home studios, fixed and mobile broadcast facilities or any other recording environment where professional sound quality and accuracy are essential during playback, the DS Series monitors produce a rich sound field with a desirable fully spatial characteristic for critical monitoring environments." An XLR input is provided for AES/EBU compatibility and coaxial/optical jacks for integration into digital recording and workstation environments such as Roland's VS Series Digital Workstations. The efficient heat sink power amplifier is fully compatible with new IEC60065 safety standards. The power switch is built into the front panel for power On/Off convenience. A newly designed shielded cabinet helps eliminate interference in TV, radio and other recording environments where speakers are placed in close proximity to video monitors and computer screens. We don't have thr pricing information just yet, but will update you as soon as we get it.
