A 3-way speaker that delivers precise and detailed sound, the Adam Audio A8H Left Side is ready to meet the demands of any studio environment! Consisting of a dedicated MLM midrange driver delivering clean sound in a critical part of the frequency range. Also, featuring a rotatable X-ART tweeter and HPS waveguide technology, providing the finest sonic details that remain consistent whether the speaker is positioned vertically or horizontally.
The pinnacle of the A Series, the A8H is a three-way speaker that delivers the extremely accurate and analytical sound required for critical-listening environments. The A8H incorporates an 8-inch resonant Multi-Layer Mineral (MLM) fibre woofer, innovative midrange driver, and handmade precision X-ART tweeter, which together produce an ultra-wide frequency response. Like the other members of the A Series family, the A8H gives you tremendous flexibility for fine-tuning the sound through rotatable HPS waveguide technology and onboard DSP. At home across a full range of audio applications in mid- to full-sized spaces, the A8H is the right choice when you’re looking for the most detailed representation of your audio.
The A Series capitalizes on the transformative power of DSP-based electronics to provide greater tuning precision and better predictability than analogue-only speakers. With firmware that can be updated through an Ethernet connection, over time you can expect to integrate the latest DSP-based capabilities from ADAM Audio—including new filter types and features, plus alternative voicings.?
On the back panel of A Series speakers, you will find four bands of room adaptation equalization: Bass, Desk, Presence and Treble. Each band is adjustable in predefined steps, offering more than 100 tuning options to help compensate for the typical acoustic problems that arise from speaker placement.??
A Control (Real-Time Remote Control)
The DSP-based functionality of all A Series monitors can be controlled remotely and in real time over Ethernet using the free to download A Control software. A Control is available to download for Windows and MacOS in the MyADAM area of www.adam-audio.com for customers who have registered their A Series monitors.?
Once downloaded and installed, you can control multiple speakers at once, precisely adjusting equalisation and delay settings from various listening positions in your studio space. While you work, you can remotely control monitor levels if you’re far from a fader or physical interface. Remote-control capabilities are particularly useful in multi-purpose rooms allowing you to make sure that voicing, EQ, and other settings are all exactly how you want them.
Room Correction & Sonarworks Integration
A Series speakers are designed to be adaptable to changing requirements, preferences, and environments. Using the A Control software, you can push advanced filters directly to an embedded platform onboard the monitors to help compensate for imperfect room acoustics. This embedded platform supports filters from industry leading third-party Sonarworks. Using Sonarworks software and a measurement mic, you can calibrate your speakers for a new room or shifting taste.
Can’t Treat Your Space? Compensate for it.
For many people, acoustic treatment is not an option due to the cost and complexity involved or because they use their speakers in a living room or bedroom. The A Series offers several solutions to address poor room acoustics, from room adaptation equalisation to deal with unavoidable nearby objects, to automated room correction available through the Sonarworks collaboration. Together these technologies can greatly improve the listening experience without the need for costly alterations to your space.
Stay in the Zone with Remote Operation
Much of the embedded technologies found in the A Series can be controlled remotely and in real time via the A Control software application. This means you can focus on your project and monitor adjustments from your listening position without the need to reach behind the speakers to adjust.?
