Product Description

Adam Audio A5X builds of the success of the highly regarded A5 studio monitors...however, this is more than just an updated model and a quick listen will testify that the A5X has far more to offer the music professional. Its' compact size makes the A5X the perfect choice for studio environment where space may be limited, whilst its' high-quality build and impressive specification help to ensure that sound quality is never compromised

Adam A5X incorporates a 5.5" (Basket) driver which provides an impressive output level while maintaining clear and accurate sound reproduction across a wide frequency range. Like the larger models in the series, the mid-range diaphragm is made from Carbon fiber/Rohacell/Glass fiber. This material, with minimum weight and maximum rigidity, prevents break up resonances resulting in an outstanding dynamic behaviour and impeccable sound characteristics.

Like all other models in the AX series, the higher frequencies come courtesy of an X-Art tweeter, a testament to ADAMs' dedication to sound quality and a guarantee of crystal clear music reproduction. X-Art isn't just a fancy name, the technical data on these tweeters speaks for itself and is backed up time and time again in listening tests. Great drivers are nothing without great amplification which is why the ones in the A5X are powered independantly by two 50w built-in amplifiers using only components that meet Adam Audios' exacting standards.

ADAM A5X feature the exclusive (and incredibly useful) 'Stereolink' feature which Adam Audio have chosen to incorporate into their smaller AX monitors to aid versatility in small working environments and when a mixer isn't used. This is accomplished by a pair of additional RCA connections that allow for a bypass of the second stereo channel to the other speaker. This new technology connects two A5X speakers in such a manner as to allow the user the option to control the overall stereo volume of the system from either speaker's gain control. This makes the A5X a natural for "mixer-less" desktop applications where overall system volume needs to be adjusted easily.

Despite its' compact size, the A5X is capable of an impressively wide frequency range, going down as far as 50Hz, this is partially thanks to the dual-ported design where the bass ports on the front allow for compressed air to move more freely giving a more 'unrestricted' bass sound. The front panel also has power and gain controls while the rear panel includes a tweeter gain control as well as balanced (XLR) jacks and unbalanced (RCA) jacks, allowing for greater connection flexibility. There are also two M6 (6 mm) metric screw threads for stand/wall mounting.

Adam Audio A5X were recently rated 10/10 by Stereo magazine who said ; "A sparkling and lively desktop monitor with an open, powerful character. Good filters and practical ergonomics as well as useful equipment make ADAMs A5X an ideal partner in multimedia nearfield sound."
