Product Description

Product Ref:vls3bt

The Tascam VL-S3BT brings great-sounding compact studio monitoring to the price of a set of headphones. The two-way powered monitors include a 3-inch woofer vented by a bass reflex port on the rear to create a surprising punch.

A pair of RCA inputs accept any line-level input signal, and a stereo 6.3-mm to RCA cable is included to connect to the jack outputs of your mixer or audio interface. Also available is a 3.5-mm stereo mini jack for playing from smartphones or MP3 players.

An efficient stereo power amplifier with 14 Watts per side drives the two monitors. The compact, ported cabinets fit almost anywhere and are ideal for home studios, dorm rooms, or video editing suites.

The VL-S3BT has a high-quality Bluetooth receiver built in for wireless playback from smartphones, tablets, and other devices.

Compact cabinet fits almost anywhere
Even with professional two-way drivers and rich power amplifier, the footprint is as compact as 110 mm x 170 mm - perfect on a desktop or next to your laptop PC. 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.

Wide Frequency Response of 80 Hz to 22 kHz
Even though they're priced like standard PC desktop speakers, the VL-S3 provide professional monitoring quality. 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 two-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 watts per channel
Designed specifically for desktop systems, the integrated 14 W + 14 W power amplifier provides you not only powerful, full-volume monitoring, but also features well-balanced sound at low volume.

The VL-S3 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 with unbalanced sources. A stereo 6.3-mm phone plug to RCA conversion cable is included for sources like an audio interface or Portastudio with a phone output jack can be interfaced.

The VL-S3 also includes a 3.5-mm stereo mini input jack, which automatically shuts off the RCA inputs. Using a standard stereo mini cable, a portable MP3 player, iPad or smartphone can be connected.

Bluetooth Playback
aptX®/AAC codecs for low latency and high definition

A Bluetooth receiver is built into the cabinet, making wireless playback possible from a smartphone, PC, 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 of the body.
