Clear, accurate sound across all frequencies with fast response for DJing and making music .
The active VM-50, VM-70, and VM-80 units produce clear audio with fast-attacking, punchy bass. And, thanks to flexible DSP settings, the speakers can be tuned to suit the characteristics of a room, making them perfect for recreating a club sound when you’re DJing or providing a flat frequency response when you’re producing music in a home or professional studio setting.
Performing from home continues to grow in popularity as DJs livestream sets to friends and fans via online platforms and social media. To recreate the feeling of playing in a club, DJs need high-quality monitor speakers and, because every room reflects sound waves differently, it’s a huge advantage if they can tune the audio to suit the shape and characteristics of the space. Great aesthetics are also important, to help a DJ’s home setup look like the booth in a club.
Leaping forward from the popular Pioneer DJ S-DJX speakers, the brand-new design of the VM series units includes high-quality components and innovative features to deliver pure audio. With flat voicing, Class D amplifiers, and Aramid fiber cones, they accurately reproduce sounds from their original sources, including deep low-end frequencies thanks to the Vortex Bass Accelerator. The fresh design of the 4 mm-thick aluminum front baffle not only looks slick, but also helps to cut out unwanted vibrations. And, thanks to DSP control, you can easily tune the speakers to the room you use them in. Whether you’re working in a compact space at home or a larger, professional studio, you can choose from 16 EQ settings to find the perfect sound for the room.
The Vortex Bass Accelerator also ensures that low-end audio is tight and free from unwanted vibrations, as ribs in the bass reflex port mean that air flows freely from the speaker to deliver pure sound – whether you’re listening to vocals or instrumentals.
The VM series speakers are voiced flat to ensure you hear the natural sound of the music. But every room reacts differently to audio waves. To help you tweak the output and find the sound that’s perfect for the room you’re working in, each VM speaker includes DSP setting.
Reach around to the back of the speakers and you’ll find 2 knobs: Low EQ and High EQ. Without needing to look at the rear panel, you can click the knobs into 4 different positions each, giving you 16 possible EQ settings that are simple to engage. Choose the one that sounds best for DJing or producing music in your home or studio, depending on the shape, size, and construction of the room. For example, if your speakers are positioned near to walls or if you’re working at night, you might want to minimize bass vibrations by switching the Low EQ to Room 1 mode. Or if you find that you’re not getting enough treble, you can boost the highest frequencies by switching the High EQ to Room 2 mode.
The brand-new design of the hexagonal aluminum front baffle brings a fresh look, as well as improved sound quality and durability. It cuts down unwanted vibrations for lower distortion while the tweeter protective guard reduces the risk of damage to the high-frequency diaphragm if you accidentally poke that area. And the Alumite treated brushed texture gives the speakers a professional finish so they look right at home next to Pioneer DJ gear.
