Excerpt: The ADAM A5s feature RCA and XLR inputs and linkable volume controls on the front. ADAM Audio is known for its studio and consumer speakers, all of which use its ART (Accelerating Ribbon Technology) folded ribbon tweeter.
Excerpt: T he Adam A5 is not an audiophile loudspeaker. Now before you died-in-the-wool audiophile-types stop reading, in perhaps a massive error of quick judgment, the Adam A5 recording studio monitor is so good that every audiophile should go right out and hear these amazing units.
Excerpt: More news out of Frankfurt as ADAM Audio announces their new A5 powered monitor and Sub7 powered subwoofer both expanding the A series and complimenting it with a sub that will extend the low frequency reproduction range down to 30Hz.
Excerpt: T he drive units in the A5 are very similar to the A7’s. The woofer has the same sandwich construction of carbon fibre and Rohacell, but the woofer diameter has been reduced from 6.5 inches to 5. The ART tweeter/midrange unit is even more interesting.
Summary: Die Monitore des Berliner Herstellers Adam, denen wir uns in diesem Test gewidmet haben, zeigen eindrucksvoll, dass sich auch für den Heimanwender der Blick über den Tellerrand von herkömmlichen PC-Lautsprechern lohnt.
Pros: sehr feinauflösender, transparenter Klang, erstaunlich voluminöser Bass, tadellose Verarbeitung
