Samson Resolv A5 Active Studio Monitors – Pair
With a complete redesign of Resolv reference monitors, Samson has combined precise engineering and the highest-quality components with an elegant new cabinet design, providing extremely accurate monitoring for recording studio, post-production and other multimedia applications.
The New Black
Starting with the cabinet, we used a piano black lacquer finish on the front panel. Inset into this panel is a sleek, time-aligned waveguide for the speaker components, allowing minimum diffraction. We also rounded the inner edge of the tuned low frequency port to reduce turbulence at high listening levels.
There are a number of advantages to Resolv active monitors. With dedicated power amps and crossovers that are custom-designed for their speakers, Resolv’s high and low frequency drivers produce only those frequencies for which they are most efficient. And that means optimized performance for every application.
The High and Low
Professional features are abundant on our new Resolv series. Their new woven carbon fiber woofers provide tight and controlled low frequency response, while their silk dome tweeters deliver smooth, sweet highs. Cooler operation means no harmonic distortion, so Resolv includes an external heat-sink, ferro-fluid cooling and a ventilated ceramic motor structure. We’ve also included a four-position high frequency lift control for customizing to your mixing room. And of course, Resolv monitors are AV shielded for operation near computers.
The Finest Componentsa
For critical listening, the highest quality speaker components are found on our new Resolv monitors. The Resolv A5 delivers 70 watts with 50 watts used on the low frequency driver and 20 watts on the tweeter. Its 5-inch woven carbon fiber woofer reduces inner cabinet reflections from passing through the cone material and mixing with the waveform coming off the front of the speaker. The absence of acoustic transfer results in a clean low frequency sound without low frequency smear. The Resolv A5 also employs a 1.25-inch silk dome ferro-fluid tweeter, which gives the high frequencies a true, natural sound without false harmonics that can be created by other types of tweeters.
With their stylish elegance and precise engineering, Resolv reference monitors complement your recording space and render an accurate mix that instills total confidence in your final production.
Architect’s & Engineer’s Specifications
The Resolv active studio monitors from Samson shall come in 3 sizes. The A5, A6, and A8. The Resolv A5 shall be bi-amped with 50 watts on the low frequency driver and 20 watts on the high frequency amplifier.
