2007-10-04 - TASCAM'S NEW VL-A SERIES REFERENCE MONITORS

Montebello, CA (October 5, 2007): TASCAM's latest breakthrough for home recording is the VL-A Series of reference monitors, a value-priced lineup of great-sounding reference monitors. The lineup includes the VL-A4, VL-A5 and VL-A8, which are 4", 5" and 8" two-way reference monitors. Each of the models is self-powered and employs balanced TRS/XLR combination inputs. A deep-cabinet design with bass ports (front-mounted on the VL-A5 and VL-A8) extends the low end beyond similarly-priced units. High and low frequency controls on the VL-A5 and VL-A8 allow the user to tailor the monitors response to their own studio. The LF-S8 subwoofer rounds out the lineup with an 8" ported design to extend the range of the system.

"Ever since the launch of our PortaStudio recorders, TASCAM has been bringing studio-quality equipment to the range of musicians working at home," remarked Jeff Laity, TASCAM Product Manager/Sales Support. "The VL-A Series continues this tradition of value and shakes up the monitor market with striking industrial design."
