24-bit/96kHz Digital Input for Noiseless Mixing
Built using the same premium components of Roland's DS-90A 24-bit Digital Reference Monitors, the affordable DS-50A's offer a high-quality 24-bit digital input with up to 96kHz capability. Simply connect the DS-50A's to the digital output of your V-Studio, V-Mixer, or computer sound card, and mix your music in an all-digital environment without the added noise inherent in analog cabling.

Powerful 50-Watt, Bi-Amplified Design
The DS-50A's utilize a two-way, bi-amplified speaker design with 50W total power. An active crossover distributes 30W to the 5-inch polypropylene woofer and 20W to the 3.25-inch soft dome tweeter. Combined with a specially designed bass-reflex cabinet, the DS-50A's deliver Roland's exceptional flat frequency response with minimal phase shifts and distortion, while remaining surprisingly powerful for their compact design.
