Speaker System Offers Full-Range Performance for an Attractive Price

Montebello , CA (September 28, 2004 ): TASCAM has introduced a new low-cost monitoring solution with the VL-S21. This satellite speaker system pairs two thin speakers with a powered subwoofer for exceptional monitoring performance for home recording and multimedia use. The left and right speakers use NXT technology, which provide wider dispersion, more uniform frequency response and reduced room interaction than traditional technologies, resulting in a professional full-range sound in an astounding package that leaves plenty of space on your desktop.

"Studios keep getting smaller," says Jim Bailey, Product Development Manager for TASCAM. "It's possible to record and mix a studio-quality album on a laptop computer, and customers are demanding studio setups that don't fill a spare bedroom. The VL-S21, with its NXT driver technology, gives you mix-quality performance from a speaker thin enough to nearly disappear on your desktop."

The TASCAM VL-S21 includes a powered, ported subwoofer that provides 5W of power to each speaker and 15W to the subwoofer. The Left and right speakers use NXT technology drivers, which employ a single driver to cover a wide frequency range. This approach improves on the traditional woofer and tweeter design by eliminating the phase cancellation that occurs when using multiple drivers and crossovers. These drivers are also remarkably thin, allowing these stylish speakers to be used at home or in the studio.
