M-Audio Unveils Flagship Studiophile DSM Reference Monitors

Published: Wed August 27, 2008  News Feed

Avid Audio companies M-Audio and Digidesign collaborate to deliver world-class monitoring solution

M-Audio, a part of Avid Technology, Inc. (Nasdaq: AVID), and a leading provider of creative tools for musicians, today unveiled the Studiophile® DSM1 and DSM2 reference monitors with built-in DSP for powerful sound processing.

Developed in collaboration with professional audio DSP technology leader Digidesign – also an Avid company – the DSM series extends M-Audio’s legacy of cutting-edge monitor acoustics, transducer technology and amplification. The collaboration makes world-class reference technology accessible to a broad array of creative and professional environments.

M-Audio engineers worked closely with Digidesign to bring their expertise to the Studiophile DSM series. The monitors feature a powerful onboard DSP engine, which provides clear and accurate audio imaging by compensating 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 optimal monitoring in any environment.

The custom-voiced components ensure hours of accurate listening without fatigue. The professional analog and digital inputs support studio-grade audio resolutions up to 24-bit/192kHz, in order to reveal every detail of music created with a digital audio workstation.

custom low-frequency driver with anodized aluminum cone provides exceptionally low distortion (6.5” on DSM1, 8” on DMS2)

DSP-based EQ and Acoustic Space Controls optimize the monitor for difficult acoustic environments
bass-reflex port delivers controlled extended bass response
