M-Audio Studiophile DSM2 monitors
M-Audio today unveiled the Studiophile® DSM1 and DSM2 reference monitors with built-in DSP.
M-Audio engineers worked closely with Digidesign on the Studiophile DSM series. The monitors feature an onboard DSP engine, which provides compensation for phase differences between the two drivers at the crossover point. The onboard DSP also manages a number of functions that enable users to tailor each speaker to their unique space and placement needs, for monitoring in any environment.
Studiophile DSM1 and DSM2 Features:
* 1” Teteron soft fabric, high-frequency dome with Neodymium magnet and ferrofluid cooling – accurate to 27kHz
* custom low-frequency driver with anodized aluminum cone provides low distortion (6.5” on DSM1, 8” on DMS2)
* onboard DSP manages the complex, 4th-order digital crossover for pristine imaging
* DSP-based EQ and Acoustic Space Controls optimize monitor for difficult acoustic environments
* bass-reflex port delivers controlled extended bass response
* high-density cabinet yields good damping and reduced acoustic interference
* professional digital inputs (up to 24-bit/192kHz): S/PDIF and AES
* balanced analog inputs: XLR and 1/4”
* bi-amplified with Class D power amps: 100 watts (low frequency) and 80 watts (high-frequency)
The Studiophile DSM1 and DSM2 monitors are currently expected to ship in the fourth quarter of 2008 and carry an MSRP of US$649.95 per unit and US$749.95 per unit, respectively. For comprehensive product information, visit m-audio.com/DSM1 and m-audio.com/DSM2.

- The best 8-inch powered monitor speakers for less than 700€ per pair Sometimes you need a couple of big speakers, but can't necessarily afford them. Don't panic! There are some speakers with an 8-inch woofer that can manage the low end quite decently without setting you back more than 700€ (about $800). We haven't tested all of them, but you probably have had (or have) the chance to listen to most of them.
- Setting up your home studio – Part 6 So far we have focused on the room that will accommodate your home studio, its soundproofing and acoustics. The time has come to start thinking about everything that will go inside. Let's begin with the one thing you can't do without: a monitoring system.
- Setting Up Your Home Studio - Part 5 Having a soundproof home studio is very nice. But that's far from enough to make a room ideal to record and mix music. Enter acoustic treatment.
