One of the leading models in Pioneer’s VM-Series, the VM-80 Active Studio Monitor Speaker, has built on the top-rated S-DJX models’ technology, capable of delivering incredible sound quality in an aesthetically pleasing design and a complete feature list. The VM-Series allow users to have full control over their sound with the user-defined DSP settings – optimise the sound to create the best image for the environment you are listening in.
Home DJing has become ever more popular within recent, being more accessible and affordable for many, more enthusiasts have joined the scene and with professionals starting to livestream their performances from home, professional standard sound quality and sleek aesthetics are important for any home setup or studio.
Clear, No distortion Audio
Experience authentic sound with no distortion; the Class D amplifier is capable of wide-bandwidth audio reproduction at 96 kHz sampling DSP. The VM-80 monitor speaker can maintain a consistently higher SPL output than the previous models, although the AB amplifiers have higher output ratings. The Class D amps used in the VM Series are much more efficient than the previous, meaning very little energy is wasted, and therefore less risk of overheating and allows peak output to be maintained.
Aramid Fibre Cone
Pioneer has carefully constructed the VM-80 Active Studio Monitor using choice materials that provide the best possible sound quality and durability to ensure it performs throughout its lifespan. Using the advancements made on their S-DJX series, the VM-Series has used the woofer cone made from Aramid Fibre to further support the monitor’s accuracy and tonal characteristics. Typically, Aramid Fibre is very rigid and lightweight, meaning it can react quickly to vibrations and reproduces select frequencies accurately. The VM-80 can project the sound throughout the room and fill any environment to make the listener feel fully immersed.
The VM-80 Active Studio Monitor features Pioneer’s constant directivity horn, which produces a broad, uniform listening experience suited to any environment. The flat playback frequency is designed to swap over to the tweeter at specific frequencies to create a more balanced, natural response. Every room and environment can have massively different acoustic properties, meaning one setting won’t work for every setup; with easily adjustable DSP settings, you can match the VM-80 to any environment.
Fine-tune Your Sound
The VM-80 features two adjustable EQ knobs on the rear of the unit, controlling the speakers Low and High EQs. Each EQ has 4 different positions it can be set to, resulting in a total of 16 different settings to choose between, meaning you can find the best sound for the right environment. The EQ controls give the speakers more flexibility, allowing for use in many situations; cut the bass and low frequencies from the output to remove unwanted vibrations.
Finished with a modern design and Alumite-treated brushed texture to the exterior of the unit to create clean styling and details that add to the speaker’s character and sound quality; the hexagonal front baffle works to suppress resonance and vibrations from the sound, with the protective guard in front of the tweeter protecting the high-frequency diaphragm.
Vortex Bass Accelerator
The Vortex Bass Accelerator has been designed specially so that the bass and low-end frequencies are tight and produced with no distortion or unwanted vibrations. By channelling air generated through specific vents and ports, the VM-80 can keep low frequencies contained and true to the sound you want to hear.
