Pioneer DJ is launching the RM Series coaxial active reference monitor speakers for professional studio use.
The RM-05 and RM-07 speakers promise a high SPL and a neutral sound with clear separation across the frequencies, suitable for near-field studio monitoring of high-res sounds. The RM Series’ uses a coaxial driver unit from Pioneer pro-audio brand TAD, placing the woofer and the tweeter on the same axis to ensure a truer response across the frequencies.
The aramid fibre woofers and front-loaded bass reflex system with grooved ducts promise a clean bass, while the aluminium hard domed tweeter is designed for delivery of frequencies of up to 50 kHz. The rigid die-cast aluminium cabinets are engineered for a high-quality aesthetic and sound, featuring curved contours to eliminate resonance and a proprietary acoustic tube utilising Pioneer’s AFAST technology to reduce standing waves that can produce a muffled response in the low to mid ranges. The speakers also feature a three-band EQ and multiple inputs.
The studio monitors will be available from June 2015 at an SRP of €549 (RM-05) and €729 (RM-07) per speaker, including VAT.
