Description :
The TAD TSM-300 are compact 2-way near field studio monitors developed for final mix applications in today’s professional digital studio environment. In keeping with TAD’s speaker design philosophy of accurate sound reproduction, it combines a newly designed single high-frequency compression driver and twin Linear Power response woofers, with a proprietary designed round aperture horn which offers imaging reality not found in conventional style speaker systems. The woofers in TAD TSM-300 are used in a vertical-twin method to make the sound source a virtual point. The primary feature is the edgeless structure, which allows a more accurate reproduction of sound by driving the speaker cone only. With conventional speakers, amplitude range of the cone is restricted within the moving range of the outer edge. In addition, the edge also vibrates to radiate unwanted noise as well as promoting stress deformation of the cone under moderate sound levels. Additional features of the Linear Power Response design include a wider frequency response range and higher power handling. In low frequencies, sound volume is defined by the volume of air to be moved by cone amplitude. With the edgeless Linear Power design, unrestricted movement of the cone is possible to permit high-power input without compromising sound accuracy.

The titanium diaphragm compression driver in TAD TSM-300 utilizes a titanium oxide diaphragm and a phasing plug. Signal conversion loss is eliminated by a precisely adjusted phase plug and edgewise coil directly wound on bobbin. Resonance created at bottom side of voice coil is removed by encapsulating magnetic fluid within the magnetic gap. AFAST-SZ (Acoustical Filter Assisted System Tuning) horn utilizes TAD’s long tradition of AFAST technology combined with a round design which matches the aperture size to the twin woofers. This unique design equalizes directionality of the sound generated which radiates sound from a virtual horn axis. This enables the reproduction of clear, rich sound with highly accurate imaging not found in traditional coaxial speaker designs. With AFAST-SZ technology, acoustic pipes are installed on the horn wall to absorb resonance and to prevent the back and forth shifting problem of acoustic imaging.

The TAD TSM-300 speakers throw a wide soundstage, and providing more detail than most speakers, especially in the high end. The twin woofers combined to produce higher levels of bass than expected from a close field monitor. The quality of lower ranges is very good, with only a small trace of cabinet induced resonance. With extended listening, there is recessed midrange which makes it easy to listen, but could cause mixes to skew towards being mid-heavy, and perhaps a little dull. The speakers have the capability to handle high sound pressure levels. In part due to their horn design (horns can be 20 or more times more efficient than a conventional driver) they are able to play at loud levels without sounding compressed and pinched, since the drivers, especially the high frequency compression driver, operate much further away from their absolute limits. The TAD TSM-300 speakers are an intriguing choice in today’s saturated studio monitor market. They offer a technologically advanced complement of drivers, excellent dynamic capability, and detail resolution that is certainly unmatched in their price range.
