The pair of VL-S3BT Powered Desktop Monitors with Bluetooth from Tascam is two-way powered monitors built with a 3" woofer and a 1/2" tweeter. The two monitors are ported and driven by a 14W stereo power amplifier and they can fit almost anywhere as a solution for home studios, dorm rooms, video-editing suites, and more.
A pair of RCA inputs accepts any line-level input, and a stereo 1/4" to RCA cable is also included making it more adaptable to other input sources. In addition, a 1/8" (3.5mm) stereo mini jack is available for playing from smartphones or MP3 players. An included speaker cable is used to connect the active speaker to the passive one. The compact speaker packs a surprising punch for its 4.5 x 6.7" size.
Furthermore, the VL-S3BT has a great-sounding Bluetooth receiver built directly into the speakers for wireless playback from smartphones, tablets, and other devices.
Compact 4.5" x 6.7" Cabinets Fit Almost Anywhere
Even with professional 2-way drivers and rich power amplifier, the footprint is a compact 4.5" x 6.7", perfect on a desktop or next to your laptop computer. There's no need to make space for speaker stands. The compact monitors can fit below many monitors or in crowded machine or server rooms
2-Way System and Bass Reflex Port
With a frequency response of 80 HZ to 22 kHz, every sound is faithfully reproduced – from the body resonance of a bass drum to a tinkling wind chime. The wide response is reproduced by the 2-way system design – consisting of a woofer, tweeter, and the bass reflex port located on the rear of the cabinet
Built-In Power Amplifier with 14 W Per Channel
Designed specifically for desktop systems, the integrated 14 W + 14 W power amplifier provides both powerful, full volume monitoring and well-balanced sound at low volumes. The VL-S3BT work great in areas where excessive volume might be a problem, such as bedrooms, dorm rooms, and apartment buildings
RCA and Stereo Mini Jack Line Inputs
The dual RCA inputs provide a common, compact interface for connecting unbalanced sources. A 1/4" stereo phone plug to RCA conversion cable is included so sources like an audio interface or Portastudio with a 1/4" phone output jack can be interfaced. The VL-S3BT also includes a 1/8" stereo mini-jack input, which automatically shuts off the RCA inputs. Using a standard stereo mini cable, a portable MP3 player, iPad or smartphone can be connected
A Bluetooth receiver is built into the cabinet, making wireless playback possible from a smartphone, computer, or any Bluetooth-enabled device where the reference sound is saved. Bluetooth playback supports aptX and AAC codecs – higher definition and lower latency than the typical SBC codec. So, without any cables, the sound can be compared to the sound in production – resulting in high-definition playback which does not feel wireless. Switching input and pairing can be done using the buttons on the front side of the body
