Cheap M-Audio Studiophile DSM2 Studio Monitor (Single)

M-Audio Studiophile DSM2 Studio Monitor (Single)



The Studiophile DSM2 reference monitor is engineered to provide superior monitoring to discerning audio professionals. The design results from collaboration between M-Audio and Digidesign.

The DSM2 monitor features DSP-based crossover management, an assortment of onboard digital EQ controls, proprietary high-grade driver designs, and analog and digital inputs for high-resolution audio up to 24-bit/192kHz. With stunning accuracy, clarity and dynamic range, the Studiophile DSM2 monitor makes world-class reference technology accessible to a broad array of creative and professional environments.

M-Audio engineers worked closely with their counterparts at sister company Digidesign to bring their experience to the Studiophile DSM2 monitor. The powerful onboard DSP engine controls a complex 4th-order digital crossover. It also provides clear and accurate audio imaging by compensating for phase differences between the two drivers at the crossover point?delivering perfect acoustic alignment and exceptional imaging. And as a result of exhaustive tuning and listening sessions, the DSM2 monitor provides incredible tonal accuracy, excellent dynamic range and exceptionally low distortion.

Each component in the DSM2 monitor is customized to deliver outstanding sound quality in a compact form factor. Featuring an exclusive design, the sturdy cabinet is constructed from high-density material with internal bracing that renders it acoustically inert. The tuned bass-reflex dual-sided flared port offers increased SPL with extended bass response and low turbulence, while the carefully matched Class D power amps deliver ample power with low distortion and excellent efficiency. The custom-voiced components ensure hours of accurate listening without fatigue. And the professional analog and digital inputs support studio-grade audio resolutions up to 24-bit/192kHz, revealing every detail that you've created with your digital audio workstation.

Far beyond the industry standards, the DSM2 monitor design endures a severe 100-hour continuous pink noise qualification process, ensuring its reliability in the harshest studio environments. This 100-hour reliability test starts with each individual driver design. Once each driver design successfully passes, the entire assembly is qualified as a system via the same 100-hour process. This highly rigorous design qualification process ensures that the DSM2 monitors will perform at the highest level - for hours on end, every time you turn them on.
