Product Description

M-Audio Studiophile DSM1

 reference monitor is engineered to provide superior monitoring to discerning audio professionals. The design of M-Audio Studiophile DSM1 results from collaboration between two powerhouse companies in music technology: M-Audio, the top U.S. manufacturer of reference monitors, and Digidesign, the industry leader in DSP technology. The DSM1 monitor features DSP-based crossover management, an assortment of onboard digital EQ controls, proprietary high-grade driver designs, and analog and digital inputs for high-resolution audio up to 24-bit/192kHz. With stunning accuracy, clarity and dynamic range, the Studiophile DSM1 monitor makes world-class reference technology accessible to a broad array of creative and professional environments.

Redefining the World-Class Near-Field Monitor

Over the last 20 years, M-Audio has achieved critical acclaim across diverse lines of music production tools. We attribute much of this success to the fact that each product group operates like a small boutique shop within the organization. The Los Angeles-based engineering team that designed the industry-leading Studiophile line applied their expertise to the DSM drivers, power amps, cabinetry and electronics. Along the way, they worked with top recording engineers and producers to refine the Studiophile DSM monitors for optimal performance.

Powerful DSP

M-Audio engineers worked closely with their counterparts at sister company Digidesign to bring their experience to the Studiophile DSM1 monitor. The powerful onboard DSP engine controls a complex 4th-order digital crossover. It also provides clear and accurate audio imaging by compensating for phase differences between the two drivers at the crossover point??delivering perfect acoustic alignment and exceptional imaging. And as a result of exhaustive tuning and listening sessions, the DSM1 monitor provides incredible tonal accuracy, excellent dynamic range and exceptionally low distortion.

Best-in-Class Drivers

To ensure the greatest sonic clarity, the Studiophile DSM1 monitor features a custom-designed, 6.5-inch anodized aluminum cone woofer that actively reduces distortion by pushing the break-up mode out of the pass band for maximum low-frequency detail at any volume level. The 1-inch ferrofluid-cooled tweeter is made of a soft Teteron dome, which strikes the perfect balance between efficiency and damping to produce a controlled high-frequency breakup out to 27kHz. The drivers and their carefully matched power amps provide a wide 42Hz - 27kHz frequency response and outstanding dynamic range, ensuring that you hear an accurate representation of your audio at all volumes.

Tailor the Speaker to Your Room

Your listening environment and speaker placement greatly impact monitor performance. To ensure optimal monitoring in your studio, the onboard DSP also manages a broad range of customizable performance filter settings that allow you to tailor each speaker to your room. DSM1 offers DSP-controlled high and low frequency roll-offs along with an assortment of EQ settings, from Acoustic Space to Q, to help optimize the speaker for placement within even the most difficult acoustic environments.

Strategically Integrated Design

Each component in the DSM1 monitor is customized to deliver outstanding sound quality in a compact form factor. Featuring an exclusive design, the sturdy cabinet is constructed from high-density material with internal bracing that renders it acoustically inert. The tuned bass-reflex dual-sided flared port offers increased SPL with extended bass response and low turbulence, while the carefully matched Class D power amps deliver ample power with low distortion and excellent efficiency. The custom-voiced components ensure hours of accurate listening without fatigue. And the professional analog and digital inputs support studio-grade audio resolutions up to 24-bit/192kHz, revealing every detail that you've created with your digital audio workstation.

Uncompromised Reliability

Far beyond the industry standards, the DSM1 monitor design endures a severe 100-hour continuous pink noise qualification process, ensuring its reliability in the harshest studio environments. This 100-hour reliability test starts with each individual driver design. Once each driver design successfully passes, the entire assembly is qualified as a system via the same 100-hour process. This highly rigorous design qualification process ensures that the DSM1 monitors will perform at the highest level??for hours on end, every time you turn them on.
