Adam Audio are established as one of the top choices in professional studio monitors, a position reinforced by a recent string of awards going to Adam monitors.
ADAM A77X wins SOS Award
Just a few weeks ago, we published that the Adam A7X won the DJ Tech awards, and now two more Adam monitors have also won other prestigious awards! The A77X monitor has received the award for Best Studio Monitor for the 2016 SOS Awards, during this year’s Winter NAMM Show in Anaheim, CA.
The CEO at ADAM Audio, David Angress, said:
“We are very pleased to accept the Best Studio Monitor Award for the A77X, and are flattered that ADAM Audio monitors have been recognized once again by the readers and editors of Sound On Sound for their contribution to the professional audio industry."
The A77X is a horizontally designed monitor that combines all of the technical innovations in the AX-Series. Due to its powerful, compression-free sound reproduction and excellent radiation characteristics, it is suitable both for nearfield and midfield monitoring.
The special feature of the A77X is its 2 1⁄2-way system. Both 7” woofers start to work together at 38 Hz and at 400 Hz one woofer fades out and only the second woofer continues to operate in the midrange up to 3 kHz. This prevents interferences and possible phase cancellation in the critical midrange. Even though frequency transitions and potential distortions lie outside these areas, the human ear is particularly sensitive to midrange frequencies.
ADAM S3X-H wins MusicTech Silver Award
The top-of-the-range Adam S3X-H monitor won the MusicTech Silver Award in the "Highly Commended Monitors" category. If you have the cash, these are the ones to splash it on, and they beat some solid competition to win the ‘highly commended’ Gear Of The Year poll.
The S3X-H is the most successful model of the SX-Series, as the highly evolved successor of Adam's very popular S3A. Designed as a three-way speaker, it includes two horizontally arranged 7.5" bass drivers, one 4.5" midrange speaker and the characteristic ADAM X-ART tweeter. The cone woofers are driven by three powerful 250 Watt PWM amplifiers that enable the S3X-H to provide amazing dynamic bass performance. Even if they are classified as midfield monitors due to their power capabilities, S3X-Hs are also ideal for reproducing spatial depth at shorter listening distances.
According to Huw Price, from MusicTech magazine: “These Adams deliver the forensic detail, imaging accuracy, transient response, wide frequency range and flexibility needed for top-end professional monitoring. They can go extremely loud – but, most importantly, they’re very enjoyable to listen to.”
As all of those awards show, you can't go wrong with ADAM!
