The new D5 (Direct 5) studio monitors are geared for the recording professional seeking a small (9.75" x 7" x 8.5"), affordable, accurate, well-voiced, reference studio monitor solution. Focused attention was paid to the development details to ensure that they deliver professional sonic performance. These monitors feature an expensive coaxially designed transducer with a 5.25" woofer and a 1" silk tweeter.
The frequency response is 53hz to 20khz. A new cutting edge digital amp with breakthrough performance was designed specifically for the D5. The internal DSP allows for intricate factory adjustments.
The D5 has pro features like a balanced XLR (and unbalanced TRS ) input as well as a boundary selection switch to select the appropriate monitor response for their placement (in a corner, in front of a wall, free standing). No plastic front baffle here, the D5 features an all wood cabinet, including a wood front baffle, for optimum performance. No simple air releasing cutout on the front baffle or cut-out hole in the back here, the D5 features a fully extended 1.75" perfectly tuned front port, providing superior and accurate extended low-end response. And because the port is on the front the D5 can be positioned close to a wall with no fear of the low-end being choked. The coaxial transducer design combined with a steep 4th order crossover delivers a detailed mid-range that allows for clarity in that complex 900Hz - 3 kHz range. Guitars, voices, strings, horns, reverb trails are very clearly and accurately portrayed and any mid-range anomalies that might exist in the source material can be easily determined and addressed. Because of our matched transducer output, mid-range mix elements can be positioned in the stereo field without the fear of being misplaced. The D5’s are optimally pre-set and voiced for ideal instrument translation.
Like the Q Series, the D5 features our Zero-Point Reference™ custom designed coaxial Digitally-Controlled Transducers™ along with internal DSP to provide a consistently matched output with every unit. This allows for accurate no-shift imaging. The DSP allowed pin-point accurate adjusting during the voicing process. The voicing was aided by award-winning recording engineers that referenced their hit mixes for voicing considerations. The final D5 pre-set voicing curve is optimal for mid-range detail. With high-quality components, internal DSP, 100w of power and 103 dB of SPL the D5 deliver a huge bang for a little buck.
