Pioneer DJ has released the latest additions to its active monitor speaker line: the VM Series. Built with musicians who are spending more time playing and producing at home in mind, three new products have made their way down the pipeline: the VM-50, VM-70, and VM-80.
The VM Series offers a smooth and sleek look and flexible DSP settings that claim to provide a quality, low-distortion experience for any listener. With the goal of offering clear, accurate sound frequencies and fast responses to make music production and DJing smooth, this release offers a bit of something for everyone with the three new speakers.
Let’s take a look at a few of the series’ key features.
The VM Series speakers come with an array of features worth noting:
- An all-new design that features:
- Hexagonal, 4 mm-thick rigid aluminum front baffles to suppress resonance and reduce vibration to maintain sound quality
- A tweeter protective guard to reduce the risk of damage to the high-frequency diaphragm
- Class D amplifier with 96 kHz sampling DSP
- Low audio distortion & increased sound output
- Aramid fiber woofer cones
- Vortex Bass Accelerator, allowing low-end audio to stay tight
- Constant directivity horn, which works to create a broad, uniform listening space
- DSP control that makes it easy for artists to weak the sound output in order to suit any room the speaker sits in
Price & availability
The VM-50 runs at $169 each, available in either white or black. The VM-70 and VM-80 sit at higher price points – $229 for the 70 (available in black solely) and $289 for the 80 (also in black only). They’ll be up for grabs in stores come early April.
You can check out the new speakers on the Pioneer DJ website. Happy home listening!
