The Perfect Piano to exceed all Expectations
Adding the joy of a piano to your home? Searching for an accurate and reliable instrument? Need a convenient keyboard for some serious practice? Compact and cost-effective, the Korg B1 Digital Piano is the right choice for all your piano needs. The streamlined design delivers the key features most important to any pianist: an authentic keyboard touch, superior sound and effortless ease of use. And unlike other pianos that may be stripped-down versions of existing models, the Korg B1 Digital Piano stands alone in its class; designed from the ground up using cutting-edge technologies to exceed all expectations. For those who are just starting and for those who want to start again, they invite you to experience the Korg B1 Digital Piano.
Innovative Technologies Deliver Full-Range Fidelity and Enhanced Low-End Response
To achieve the deep, rich tones of an acoustic piano within its compact body, the B1 Digital Piano relies on Korg's servo-assisted MFB technology, a pair of full-range speakers, plus a passive radiator. Together, these elements reproduce the rich resonant tones that emanate from the large body of an acoustic piano, with particular attention paid to the low-frequency range.
MFB (Motional Feedback) Technology:
The built-in speaker system is equipped with MFB technology. This active servo system controls the movement of the cone, allowing low frequencies to be reproduced with minimal distortion. In use, the movement (velocity) of the speaker cone (vibrational surface) is detected and a signal that compensates for the mechanical response of the speaker and speaker chamber is returned to the amp (feedback). This Motional Feedback technology allows the system to achieve ideal frequency response and permits the low-frequency range to be reproduced accurately; any coloration of the sound caused by the speaker enclosure is immediately corrected. This well-regarded technique reinforces the low-end response-particularly with small speakers-and can also help to compensate for the room acoustics.
Eight Expressive and Highly-Detailed Instruments Sounds
As with all digital pianos, the Korg B1 uses sampling technology (multiple digital recordings) to capture and recreate the rich, vibrant tone of an acoustic piano. As sampling technology has continued to improve-and as digital memory components have become more abundant-the Korg B1 Digital Piano is able to deliver a more accurate, authentic and expressive sound than instruments of just a few years ago. In addition to capturing the enormous tonal range of a grand piano, the meticulously-sampled sounds created for the B1 Digital Piano also reproduce the sympathetic string vibrations and damper resonances that give the piano its character.
Three flavors of acoustic piano are provided; the B1 Digital Piano also provides two electric pianos, a harpsichord and two organ sounds-each delivered with precise realism. This generous set of frequently-used sounds allows any player to expand their repertoire to cover many musical genres. The dedicated PIANO PLAY button instantly recalls the Concert Grand Piano sound.
The B1 Digital Piano is equipped with Korg's NH (Natural Weighted Hammer) keyboard action. This Natural Weighting provides a heavier touch in the lower registers, transitioning to a lighter touch in the upper regions-just as on a traditional piano. The dynamic response of the keyboard can be set to match the playing style of any performer.
The efficient design of the B1 Digital Piano encourages you to enjoy playing and minimizes distractions. Sleek and streamlined, the compact body houses the built-in speaker system, yet weighs only 26 lbs. (11.8 kg.) allowing for east transport-if needed. The depth barely exceeds 13 inches (336 mm), making the B1 Digital Piano extremely agile and versatile when it comes to placement. Available in either Black or White, the B1 Digital Piano can complement any decor.
Improved Music Rest
The music rest of the B1 Digital Piano features a page retention pocket that keeps music pages and folios from turning unexpectedly during performance-printed music up to 10 mm (approx.) in thickness can be accommodated. This thoughtful addition allows you to concentrate on your playing.
For a more permanent and tasteful addition to your playing environment, consider the matching STB1 stand. Available in black (STB1BK) or white (STB1WH), this stand places the B1 Digital Piano at a standard keyboard height for comfortable playing. For the demanding pianist, the Triple-Pedal unit (PU-2) provides all of the pedals of the concert grand piano. Matching cushioned benches (PC-300; JS-SB100) are also available. All options are sold separately.
Rugged Damper Pedal
The metal damper (sustain) pedal provided with the B1 Digital Piano provides a reassuring stability and a great feel underfoot. While the single damper pedal is ideal for many pianists and performers, an optional three-pedal unit (PU-2: separately sold accessory) is available for the piano purist.
By activating the Partner Mode, the keyboard is effectively split into two side-by-side keyboards-each pitched in the same range. This allows the student and teacher (or parent and child) to play the same passages at the same time-the perfect way to learn a difficult lesson. In a classroom setting, two students can share a single instrument.
The Concert piano series is Korg's new standard in piano performance. It is designed to provide the same enjoyment, sound, playing feel and musical experience as experienced in a concert hall.$329

Professional 2-way Studio Monitor with Kevlar Cone and Biamped Design
The VL-S5 is the successor of Tascam's popular range of high-quality studio monitors like the VL-x5. Designed for the needs of home studios, it works well with audio interfaces such as the US-2x2 and US-4x4.
The design of the VL-S5 creates a high-resolution stereo monitoring system in any environment; You immediately notice the seamless, natural response delivered by the Kevlar woofers and 1" silk dome tweeters. Each component is driven by a separate amplifier and a crossover frequency of 3.2kHz maximizes the efficiency of both drivers while moving phase issues out of the critical midrange. The system delivers even frequency reproduction from 60Hz - 22kHz.
Balanced input connections reduce noise and interface with professional components. For reliable mix playback at an affordable price, there's no better choice than Tascam's VL-S5 studio monitors.
High-strength Kevlar LF cone and 1" Silk HF driver for superior, natural response
In the music production process, it is imperative to hear the audio quality of your tracks as purely as they were recorded. The VL-S5 system responds quickly to audio transients with high-quality driver components. The high-strength, heat-resistant Kevlar cone combined with the 1" silk tweeter faithfully reproduce every nuance of the original recorded track.
The Kevlar cone reproduces the full frequency spectrum without distortion. Softer materials used in other monitors can bend and deform during playback, giving you an inaccurate idea of what your mix actually sounds like. The silk dome tweeter provides accurate high end playback without the harsh, fatiguing sound typical of metal-domes designs.
LF 40W and HF 30W Bi-amplified Power
The VL-S5 is built with transparent audio quality in mind. Each component is driven by a discrete amplifier for the cleanest possible playback. Separate driving amplifiers also eliminate any possible electrical interaction between components - which could degrade performance.
The crossover frequency of 3.2kHz was selected after extended listening tests to ensure that seamless response is achieved. Many monitors place their crossover frequency lower around 1-2k, allowing them to use less expensive components, but this causes phase distortion in the midrange where guitars, vocals and other critical mix elements lie. The high-quality Kevlar driver allows Tascam to set the crossover higher without distortion for truer reproduction of rock, hip hop, EDM, acoustic or any other music genre.
Balanced XLR / TRS input for Low Noise Connection
Electrically balanced audio connections reduce noise when interfacing audio components, especially when cable lengths are long. Noise can come from other components in the signal chain, the electrical supply to audio components, room lighting and other sources. Noise can get mixed with signals during transmission between components on a cable and a balanced connection can reduce or eliminate this noise. To correctly identify whether noise is caused by a previously recorded music track or the environment, noise must be excluded from the monitoring environment.
Magnetically shielded design allows safe placement near personal computers and video monitors
The VL-S5 is shielded to prevent magnetic lines of force from affecting sensitive components nearby. The highly-efficient VL-S5 speaker has a powerful magnet. With magnetic shielding, it can be installed near devices which can be affected by magnetic force - such as computer displays, hard drives and other computer components.
