Powered Studio Monitor with 5" Kevlar cone
The VL-S5 is a powered studio monitor and a succeeding model to the VL-X5 TASCAM studio monitor which has met with rave reviews due to its high-quality sound. The main speaker unit is equipped with woofer units developed with Kevlar materials that produce an excellent response and clear sounds thanks to the materials high strength.
This model has been discontinued.
Biamped design that drives woofers and tweeters through their own designated power amplifiers
The silk tweeters split by 3.2kHz crossover circuitry contributes to the delivery of a high-resolution monitoring environment. The all-encompassing biamped design drives woofers and tweeters with their own amplifiers, exhibiting excellent performance over low to high frequency sounds. Even the frequency response boasts a wide range, spanning 60Hz-22kHz.
XLR/TRS balanced-input that supports reduced-noise connections
The VL-S5 supports balanced input which is integral to the construction of a monitor environment with reduced noise. As such, it allows a balanced connection compatible with TASCAM music production devices. Furthermore, the employed design matches TASCAM music production devices, including the US-2x2. The VL-S5 matches perfectly with TASCAM products, and will deliver a music production environment with higher quality.
High-strength Kevlar LF cone and 1" Silk HF driver for superior, natural response
The Kevlar cone reproduces the full frequency spectrum without distortion. Softer materials used in other monitors can bend and deform during playback, giving you an inaccurate idea of what your mix actually sounds like. The silk dome tweeter provides accurate high end playback without the harsh, fatiguing sound typical of metal-domes designs.
LF 40W and HF 30W Bi-amplified Power
The crossover frequency of 3.2kHz was selected after extended listening tests to ensure that seamless response is achieved. Many monitors place their crossover frequency lower around 1-2k, allowing them to use less expensive components, but this causes phase distortion in the midrange where guitars, vocals, and other critical mix elements lie. 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 for Low Noise Connection
Magnetically shielded design allows safe placement near personal computers and video monitors
