Denon DN-508S Reference Monitor
The 220-watt DN-508S provides clear, dynamic sound reproduction for mid- and small-size meeting and presentation spaces. Combining 1-inch silk dome tweeter, a 5-inch woven Kevlar® midrange unit, and an 8-inch woven Kevlar® woofer, it offers a dynamic, wide-range frequency response, even exceeding the performance of speakers found in world-class recording studios.
Well-designed 3-way speakers—like the DN-508S—use a custom high-quality midrange driver specifically intended to cover the critical middle frequencies. Most of the everyday sounds we hear—voices, instruments like saxophone and guitar, naturally-occurring sounds like handclaps, footsteps and slamming doors—are midrange frequencies. Having a driver specifically dedicated to their reproduction maximizes clarity and detail, ideal for situations requiring exceptional speech intelligibility.
The midrange and tweeter are mounted in line with each other (the tweeter is mounted at the apex of the midrange) at precisely the same point in space. Doing so means the sound of the two drivers integrates perfectly, without the audibly-distracting time/arrival distortion of widely-spaced drive units. Instead, our in-line driver design propagates its output in a seamless, uninterrupted time envelope, markedly improving definition and clarity.
