Creates high-quality music through the sound production that makes mutual use of headphones and speakers
Even in this day and age in which many excellent monitor headphones are being sold, there are many elements that cannot be checked by relying only on headphones during music production. However, it is not easy to replicate an environment where you can blast music like when using large-scale monitor speakers. Unlike in the past in which most of the production was done in a studio, it is becoming more and more important to create an excellent monitoring desktop environment at one’s home in order to create high-quality pieces of music. The VL-S3 is a speaker that will be optimal for creating such desktop monitoring environments. It has a 2-way built-in (powered) amplifier monitor speaker pair with a compact size of 110mm x 170mm and a wide frequency response of 80Hz-22kHz.
Delivers clear, rich monitor sounds even during low-volume playback
The size that does not force restrictions on installation location enables VL-S3 to be installed in production environments comprising of a laptop and compact audio interface without a hitch. Not only does this make it perfect for a PC and DAW environment, the VL-S3 also works great in a production environment that utilizes compact MTR, including the TASCAM DP-006. The power amplifier output of 14W+14W is enough for a home environment, and the VL-S3 reveals its true value at low volumes; well-balanced monitor sounds can be provided even at low volume. You can comfortably utilize these speakers even at night or other times when you can’t easily play at full volume.
Equipped with RCA and stereo mini phone jack input
Equipped with a RCA and a stereo mini jack input, the VL-S3 can be connected to many acoustic devices, as well as mobile music players using the separately-sold conversion cable. In addition, an RCA to phono conversion cable is included for sources such as TASCAM audio interfaces and other devices that use a phono output jack.
Recreates a studio-like monitor environment at one’s desktop
The VL-S series has been newly added to the lineup of the already-successful VL-X series, VL-A series, and VL-M series.
The VL-S3 is a new addition to the TASCAM monitor speaker series that meets the needs of the production environment that is constantly changing rapidly. The VL-S3 recreates a monitor environment that matches that of a studio at your desktop, paving a way to a next-level music production.
