TASCAM Professional Studio Monitors VL-A5's for $135 brand new - (For the pair): http://www.proaudiostar.com/tascam-vla5-powered-monitors-b-stock.html

 

Mine came in last week and I've got them set up on my desktop:

 

 

 

These originally retailed for $180 each and were a pretty good bargain even at full retail......but for $135 for the pair!

 

Some specs:

Frequency Response (1 W @ 1 m) +/-3 dB 45 Hz ~ 22 kHz

Axial Sensitivity (dB SPL, 60 W @ 1 m) 103

LF amplifier power (RMS) 60 W

HF amplifier power (RMS) 30 W

LF driver 5.25 inch

HF driver 0.75 inch soft silk domes

Crossover frequency 3 kHz

HF control +/-1.5 dB 3 kHz / 8 kHz (DIP type switch)

LF control +/-1.5 dB 150 Hz / 800 Hz (DIP type switch)

Low-cut frequencies 40 Hz / 500 Hz (12 db OCT)

System Configuration 2way near-field

studio reference monitors

T.H.D 0.01 % (40 W 1 kHz 8 ohms)

Input connectors One XLR / TRS Combo

Input Level 200 mV 10 k ohms

Power requirements 100 V ~ 120 V (50 Hz / 60 Hz) or

200 V ~ 240 V (50 Hz / 60 Hz)

Cabinet MDF

Color Dark black wood

Dimension (W x H x D mm) 198 x 291 x 290 (3.9 x 11.4 x 11.8 in.)

Weight 7 kg (15.43 lbs)

 

And most importantly they sound amazing (especially for the price). I do not have mine paired with a sub woofer and after spending a little time with them I really do not see the need to do so. As you can see from the pic I have them set up very close and aimed right at me. The music sounds like it's radiating right out of my computer screen. At 90 watts each they can go loud.....very loud.

Looks like they have been discontinued. That might be some of the last stock available.

If you want to share the deal with people, you might post in the Deal Discussion thread: http://www.head-fi.org/t/692119/the-deals-discussion-thread-read-the-first-post

Yes they have been discontinued. I did post this in the deals thread but being speakers and not headphones I thought it might be better served here.

These are truly amazing for the price. Which is why I'm posting. There probably are not many left and these do come brand new sealed in their original packaging.
