Samson’s Resolv SE5 2-Way Active Studio Reference Monitor offers a redesign from the classic Resolv A-Series monitor, with more accurate sound reproduction and a stylish new look.

Resolv SE5 utilizes the latest innovations in speaker engineering, giving you superb stereo imaging for recording, post-production and other multimedia applications.

Optimized for accuracy
Producing 70 watts of power, Resolv SE5 includes a dedicated power amp and electronic crossover that provide accurate tonal balance. The new 5-inch woven carbon fiber woofer provides tight and controlled low frequency response, while its 1.25-inch soft dome tweeter gives the high frequencies a true, natural sound without unwanted resonance. Resolv SE5 also includes a 4-position high frequency lift control that allows the monitor to be optimized for different mixing environments, and is AV shielded for operation near CRT monitors and other sensitive electronics.

Finished strong
This new-look enclosure is constructed of solid MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard) and feature an elegant finish on the front panel. Inset into the panel is a sleek, time-aligned waveguide that allows for a wide listening area with minimum diffraction. In addition, its slotted front ports with rounded inner edges help reduce port noise at high SPLs.

Record with Resolv
A pair of Resolv SE5s is the perfect monitor setup for any recording studio. Tracking vocals, instruments and sound design elements are a breeze with these pro-level monitors, as you’ll be able to hear every nuance with impeccable precision and make adjustments for the best possible performance. In the end, Resolv SE5s will help you get the sound you want from the start and save you valuable time in post-production.

Mix and master
When you’re finished recording, the audio reproduction capabilities of a Resolv SE5 monitor system enables you to mix and master tracks that will sound great on a wide range of playback systems. Designed to help you producing smooth, even mixes, each Resolv SE5 features a wide frequency response, well-balanced speaker and control for optimizing the system for different mixing environments. The results will always be a solid representation what your song will sound like on record.

Perfect for playback
With Resolv SE5s, you’ll bring the experience of playing back your audio projects to a whole new level. Whether you’re listening back to music recordings or viewing multimedia productions, the audio will sound crystal clear and full of dynamics when pumped through these monitors. And above all, a Resolv SE5 monitor setup gives you the playback accuracy you need to experience all your recordings exactly the way they were designed.

With a stylish elegance and precise engineering, Samson's Resolv SE5 active studio reference monitor will produce audio playback with sparkling clarity and definition to complement any recording space.

    I use these little powerhouse monitors for computer speakers, for practice and just as a great pair of portable speakers i can take almost anywhere. Light, loud, clear and portable. Little package packs big sound. I am a staff reviewer at Sam Ash Music.

    Comments about Samson Resolv SE5 2-Way Active Studio Monitor (Single):

    70 watts! These monitors have a very natural sound, and has an HF attenuator to adjust frequencies, depending on the room you're mixing in. My old monitors had the "on switch" in the front, and I don't understand why all monitor manufacturers don't adopt this ingenious feature. Still, the main focus should be the sound, and these monitors sound great!

      This monitor provides a clear and balanced refelection of any audio played through it, works well in a mono and stereo format. They would also work great in a home theatre setting. I've used these with garage band to mix my demos and find them well suited for my needs. Great monitor for beginners to home recording.

        Comments about Samson Resolv SE5 2-Way Active Studio Monitor (Single):

        The RE Series of studio monitors are a great option for the budget conscious recording engineer.

        The come complete with a Kevlar Cone and a relatively flat frequency response, to allow for long term, flat and loud playback.

              Comments about Samson Resolv SE5 2-Way Active Studio Monitor (Single):

              The Resolv series is Samson's best selling monitor line, and these little 5-inch monitors pack a PUNCH. The clarity and accuracy is unrivaled in other monitors in this price range, and they provide as much low end as most 6" monitors will. The carbon fiber cones are extremely durable, and you should never worry about blowing these through normal wear and tear. Additionally, they are relatively light weight, making them perfect for the mobile studio. The only drawback is that they only have 1/4'' plug ins, but that is fairly common with 5" studio monitors. And for only $124.99? WHAT? This deal is amazing, and so are these monitors.

                Comments about Samson Resolv SE5 2-Way Active Studio Monitor (Single):

                I was surprised by the punch from the low end. Most of the monitors in this price range have either severely muddy low end, or none at all. A pair of these monitors can get you a great mix, without a huge price tag.

Great bass response with a smooth midrange make these monitors great for mixing and tracking in your home studio or proving the sound for your home theatre setup as well.

                    This single monitor is great in pairs but also works wonders in a 5.1 surround sound system. With 70 watts of power it will handle everything you throw at it. I am a sales associate @ Sam Ash Ontario.

                        Very nice reference monitors for mixing.
                        Surprising clarity in the bass.
                        My mixes are sounding much better after using these.
                        Highly recommended.
