Model Description:
Stereo Micro Monitors with Digital Input

Model Details

The Roland DM-20 active nearfield monitors are an interesting hybrid: a magnetically shielded pair of 2-way stereo speakers, sporting 20 Watts each of amplification, equipped with analog and digital connectors, designed in service of the often neglected desktop multimedia and personal desktop digital workstation markets.

The DM-20's, which are specifically designated as Left and Right channels, feature optical and coaxial digital inputs and 24-bit D/A conversion, separate 1/4" and RCA line inputs for dual analog or analog and digital source monitoring, and complete front panel tone and volume controls, all located on the Right channel speaker. Both the Right and Left channels provide front panel power switches, and the 1/4" stereo headphone output is also located on the Right speaker's front panel.

Conversely, the rear panel of the DM-20's Right channel contains all the audio inputs, both analog and digital, a sort of set-and-forget simplicity appropriate to the applications these speakers seem designed for, and minimizing clutter of valuable desktop real estate.

While recommended by Roland as an inexpensive yet technolgically advanced monitoring solution, for use with a varity of that company's keyboard and digital multi-track workstations, the DM-20's, with such versatile connectivity, should work well with any desktop multimedia recording and production setup, and look good, too.
