Roland Introduces DS Series Digital Monitors
April 2, 2004
Roland's new flagship DS-8/-7/-5 two-way active digital reference monitors are suited for professional, project and home studios, fixed and mobile broadcast facilities.
There are three models in the DS Series line. 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 a "flat" frequency response in near field listening environments and accepts 24-bit, up to 192 kHz digital inputs.
An XLR input is provided for AES/EBU compatibility and coaxial/optical jacks for integration into digital recording and workstation environments.
The efficient heat sink power amplifier is fully compatible with new IEC60065 safety standards. The power switch is built into the front panel for 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.
