Affordable 24-bit/96kHz Monitoring!

The DS-30A 24-bit Digital Reference Monitors are the most affordable way to add pristine 24-bit/96kHz digital monitoring to your studio. These ultra-compact monitors utilize a 30-watt bi-amp design with custom crossover circuitry to deliver crystal-clear sound and flat frequency response. They're the perfect match for Roland and BOSS digital studios, or for any application where a smaller monitor is needed without compromising sound quality.

  • - Ultra-affordable powered nearfield monitors with flat frequency response
  • - 24-bit/96kHz digital input; balanced XLR/TRS input for analog applications
  • - 5” foamed polypropylene LF driver and 1” soft dome HF driver; magnetically shielded
  • - 30W bi-amplifier design with active crossover for minimal phase shift and distortion
  • - Adjustable input level, low frequency and high frequency trims
  • - Convenient front power switch

Give Your Studio the Digital Edge

Whether recording with a stand-alone workstation or a computer-based system, your mixes are sure to benefit from owning a pair of digital reference monitors like the DS-30As. In fact, they're so affordable, there's no reason you shouldn't be listening to your mixes the way they were meant to be heard: in pure 24-bit/96kHz quality without the line-loss or hum of analog cables.

30 Watts of Bi-Amplified Power

While compact in size, the DS-30As still sound impressive thanks to a 30-watt bi-amped design. Roland's custom crossover circuitry distributes 20 watts to a 5” polypropylene woofer and 10 watts to a 1” soft dome tweeter. The result is super-flat response with minimal phase shift and distortion. There's never been a better time to step up to digital monitoring!
