What is the difference between a good pair of hi-fi speakers and true studio monitors? Two things. First, hi-fi home speakers exaggerate the lows (and often the highs) to create maximum impact. This can be fun to listen to but it's seldom accurate. Studio monitors are very accurate to insure a real reproduction of what is actually being recorded. And second, monitors must be very transparent sounding. This allows you to effectively mix parts of the music like vocals, bass, and even reverb trails without each part colliding with another. Well, you have just described the sound of the new Samson Resolve Series Studio Monitors.
The Resolve 65a are a pair of very accurate powered studio monitor (biamped -75 watts LF and 25 watts HF) which features a custom designed 6.5 inch bass driver coupled with a butter-smooth 1 inch titanium dome tweeter. The active internal crossover features a midrange contour control that allows you to select from clinically accurate, to midrange boost, to hi-fi. The Resolve 65a also features fully shielded drivers, XLR, 1/4" and RCA connectors, and a front ported, tuned cabinet for enhanced bass response and flush wall placement.
The Resolv 65a active monitors sound full and balanced with an uncompromised transparent midrange, leaving room to accurately mix vocals, snare hits and reverb trails. The Resolv65a features 6.5 inch copolymer butyl surround Woofer, a 1 inch titanium diaphragm, neodimium magnet with ferro-fluid cooled tweeter and gold plated binding posts all mounted in a ported tuned cabinet. In addition, the Resolv65a utilizes a midrange contour control. In the nominal position, the Resolv monitors are clinically accurate, but by dialing in the control, you can tailor the frequency response from hi-fi to an aggressive midrange, emulating some of the classic near field monitors.
Each unit is powered by a dual power amp, (75 watts low and 25 watts high) perfectly matched to the drivers. The active crossover allows precise control of the crossover frequency.
Samson: A Passion for Innovation
Now a world-leader in music products, professional audio and sound contracting equipment, Samson Technologies was founded in 1980, when a couple guys started designing and manufacturing low-cost 49 MHz wireless microphone and instrument systems in the back room of a music store.
The original wireless products offered reliability at prices unheard of at the time. These systems were quickly accepted by performers and musicians at every level of the music industry. It would prove to be the beginning of what was to become one of the most significant professional audio technologies of our times.
Over the years, Samson has pioneered a number of technical breakthroughs in wireless such as the incorporation of dbx Noise Reduction, synthesized wireless with selectable frequencies, the first 19-inch rack-mount receiver, Microprocessor-controlled True Diversity (dual receiver) designs and cost-effective UHF wireless for live sound applications, system contracting and video.
Today they are an industry leader with three distinct brands: Samson, Hartke and Zoom. Over 350 products designed and distributed by Samson are sold in 106 countries throughout the world.
