Digidesign introduced a new family of Reference Monitor Series (RMS). Developed jointly with PMC, the new bi-amplified RMS monitors unite Digidesign’s expertise in digital audio with PMC’s loudspeaker legacy.
The Digidesign RMS monitors use a 48-bit, fixed-point DSP engine for various tasks including EQ settings, trim level, the unique Bass Port Emulation, and two-way digital crossover with steep filters that ensure virtually zero phase shift. Each driver is powered by an analog-controlled Class D amplifier, which can sense the loudspeaker voltage directly and provide an accurate frequency response regardless of the reactive load presented by the transducers. Amplifier performance is further enhanced with a linear power supply, which provides two times the peak current headroom and better noise isolation than switch mode designs.
Both models feature a 1-inch ferrofluid-cooled HF driver with 50w amp. RM1 has 5.5-inch LF driver with 80w amplifier and RM2 6.7-inch LF driver with 100w amp. Inputs include balanced analog (XLR) and digital up to 96kHz (AES3 XLR and RJ45).
