Kent, UK (December 12, 2003)–From the design house of John Oram, Trident Audio has released the new LS101 Near-Field Monitor Speakers. The Trident LS101 is a high quality monitor featuring two 5″ low to mid drivers and one 1″ dome tweeter. The design features a magnetic screen built into the cabinet to shield speaker magnetism from nearby computer monitor screens, a feature befitting the DAW user working in restricted studio space.
The power handling capability of the monitor is 50 watt RMS at 4 ohm and the dual gold plated speaker terminals allow for bi-wiring. The cabinets are finished in cherry wood veneer, measure 17″ by 12″ by 7″ and weigh 20 pounds. The frequency response is from 30Hz to 22kHz with a very low distortion rating. The LS101s can be utilized in both stereo nearfield and surround applications and are currently available for a retail price of $799 per pair.
