Tascam has released a new professional studio monitor at NAMM 2015. The VL-S5 powered 2-way monitor employs a 5” curved Kevlar cone with a high-temperature voice coil and damped rubber surround and a 1” silk dome tweeter, which produces crisp highs without the fatigue of metal components.
The active, bi-amplified power section produces 70W per side – 30W to the highs and 40W for the low end. Other features include balanced and unbalanced XLR and 1/4” inputs with a trim control while a large rear port extends the low end frequency response from 60Hz to 22kHz. The VL-S5 is also shielded to prevent magnetic lines of force from affecting sensitive devices such as computer displays, hard drives, and other computer components.
