Numark announced plans to
introduce a new series of monitor speakers for professional DJ
applications, starting with the premium M80 model. The Numark M80 is
a high performance speaker system designed for booth monitor
applications, featuring tough construction to stand up to wear and
tear in mobile and club applications plus superior fidelity for
accurate booth control.
The M80 is a self-powered,
bi-amplified speaker system w/active crossover, rated at 130 Watts
System or 65 Watts per speaker (45W LF, 20W HF RMS power), with
20Hz-20kHz Frequency Response and easily accessible Gain, Bass, and
Treble controls located on each speaker. The M80 also features
magnetically-shielded drivers for reliable performance near other
electronic equipment, enclosed in a multi-positional cabinet design
for horizontal or vertical setup. The cabinet accommodates standard
mounting brackets (not included) for permanent installation. Rounding
out the set of professional features are RCA and 1/4" TRS
balanced input connectors.
Numark CEO John E.
"Jack" O'Donnell commented, "Our team of design
engineers, who are also professional DJs, recognized the opportunity
to create a monitor speaker specifically for DJ applications. They
knew that a winning design would stand up to club and mobile
applications better than traditional monitor designs for studio
applications, and would sound great. With the M80, they have
delivered on all counts."
The M80 speaker will start
shipping in February, 2003, and have an estimated street price of $299.00.
