Versatile Sound: the DM-40 Desktop Monitor Speakers Designed for DJs and Producers

April 4, 2016 by Mobile Beat

dm-40-monitor-speaker-angle-nTorrance, CA (March 31, 2016): Create a versatile home set-up with the DM-40 active speakers from Pioneer DJ – the desktop monitors that produce a rich, balanced sound fit for DJing, producing and general playback.

The compact DM-40s are packed with high-quality speaker technology from Pioneer’s pro-audio sub-brand TAD[i] and its BULIT Series studio monitors, including a front-loaded bass reflex system to deliver a tight bass kick you’ll feel. Additionally, the soft dome tweeters with DECO[ii] convex diffusers produce a 3D stereo sound and a wide sweet spot so DJs  can enjoy a clear, energetic sound whether they’re sitting to produce, standing to DJ or listening to music from a smartphone.

With a choice of inputs – RCA and stereo mini jack – users can easily connect the speakers to their own DJ or production kit, making the DM-40 a versatile system ready for any home set-up.

The DM-40 will be available from June 2016, with a retail price of $149.00 per pair.

Watch the DM-40 introduction video and see how DECO technology can create a 3D sound in any set-up.

1.     Front-loaded bass reflex system with grooves for an uninterrupted, rich bass

The DM-40s’ 4-inch fiberglass woofers output bass from the front, and the bass ducts feature grooves to reduce air friction – so you’ll feel a tight, punchy bass even if you put the speakers close to the wall.

2.     Soft dome tweeters with convex diffusers deliver a 3D high frequency sound

The ¾-inch soft dome tweeters are fitted with convex diffusers that use DECO technology from TAD Labs. The diffusers channel high frequencies left, right and up – so users can enjoy a wide sweet spot and 3D stereo sound wherever they sit or stand.

3.     Class AB amp and time alignment ensure balance across the frequencies

The tweeter and woofer are carefully positioned to eliminate crossover and ensure a well-balanced response across the frequencies, while a Class AB amp ensures perfect clarity with low-distortion and no loss of quality.

4.     Curved front edges reduce resonance for a clean sound

The cabinet’s curved front increases its rigidity and reduces external diffraction – not to mention, it looks sleek in any home set-up.

5.     Other features

·         Volume control dial is on the front panel for ease of use

·         RCA and stereo mini jack inputs

·         Headphone output
