Kevlar LF Cone and 1'' Silk HF Driver
The VL-S5 monitor responds quickly to audio transients with high-quality driver components. The high-strength, heat-resistant Kevlar cone combined with a 1'' silk tweet faithfully reproduce every nuance of the original recorded track.
The Kevlar cone reproduces the full frequency spectrum without distortion. Softer materials used in other monitors can be and deform during playback, giving you an inaccurate idea of what your mix actually sounds like. The silk dome tweeter provides an accurate high end playback without the harsh, fatiguing sound typical of metal-domes designs.
LF 40W and HF 30W Bi-amplified Power
Built with transparent audio quality in mind, each component is driven by a discrete amplifier for the cleanest possible playback. Separate driving amplifiers also eliminate any possible electrical interaction between components, which could degrade performance.
The crossover frequency of 3.2kHz was selected after extended listening tests to ensure that seamless response is achieved. The high quality Kevlar driver allows Tascam to set the crossover higher without distortion for truer reproduction of rock, hip hop, EDM, acoustic or any other music genre.
Balanced XLR / TRS Input
Electrically balanced audio connections reduce noise when interfacing audio components, especially when cable lengths are long. Noise can come from other components in the signal chain, the electrical supply to audio components, room lighting, and other sources. This noise can get mixed with signals during transmission between components on a cable, and a balanced connection can reduce or eliminate this noise.
Magnetically Shielded Design
The VL-S5 active studio monitor is shielded to prevent magnetic lines of force from affecting sensitive components nearby. The highly-effective speaker has a powerful magnet. With magnetic shielding, it can be installed near devices which could be affected by such a large magnetic force; such as computer displays, hard drives and other computer components.
