Product Description

Considering investing in a pair of studio monitors? Ask a pro audio engineer, and chances are you'll hear the name "Adam." Adam studio monitors have long been associated with incredible accuracy, premium components -- and, ever since the hugely popular A7 model, a price within reach of mere mortals. The Adam A7X makes notable refinements to the A7, with extended-range ribbon tweeters and re-engineered bass drivers for a more three-dimensional, focused sound. More than just a deserving successor to the A7, the Adam AX7 is a dramatic improvement on the original. If you're considering studio monitors of this caliber, you'll find Adam monitors live up to their name in every respect.

Adam's Trademark X-ART Ribbon Tweeters

Like its predecessor, the A7X incorporates one of Adam's instantly recognizable folded-ribbon tweeters. These distinctive high-frequency drivers don't just look good; with no heavy voice coils to them weigh down, Adam's tweeters push air four times more efficiently than traditional domed designs. An update to the ART (Accelerating Ribbon Technology) tweeter found in the original A7, the X-ART folded-ribbon driver extends the A7X's top end up to 50 kHz. The "X" in A7X stands for "extended frequency response" -- and for you, it means flatter phase response, longer sessions without listening fatigue, mixes that "breathe" more naturally.

Effortless Low-End, No Sub Necessary

On the "low" side of its 2.5 kHz crossover, the AX7 sports a 7-inch bass/mid driver with a Rohacell/carbon-fiber cone -- which is much more rigid than the typical paper or plastic-polymer variety, while still remaining lightweight. Driven by a beefy 100-watt Pulse Width Modulation amp, this woofer delivers twice the mid- and low-range power of the already-substantial 50-watt A7. Two front-firing bass ports extend the clear, precise low end without overhyping your bass, while the rear control panel allows you to compensate for speaker placement with a 300 Hz shelving filter adjustable to +/- 6 dB. With 100 watts of dedicated power behind a low end that reaches down to 42 Hz, most users won't need to install a separate subwoofer.

German Engineering

As truly professional reference monitors, every Adam A7X is rigorously tested in the Adam Audio factory in Berlin, and it's clear their engineers have considered every detail. For your convenience, a master gain control is located on the front panel of the A7X, right next to the power switch. If you've ever had to play Twister just to turn on or turn up your monitors in a studio setting, you'll immediately appreciate this design. You'll also find both RCA and XLR inputs on the rear panel.

Features:

- Update to the popular A7, with extended frequency response and more power
- X-ART tweeter delivers stunning high-end response up to 50 kHz
- Redesigned 7-inch mid/low driver with a 1.5-inch voice coil
- Biamplified design: 50-watt tweeter amp, 100-watt mid/low amp
- Front-panel power switch and gain control
- Rear-panel +/- 4 dB high-frequency gain control
- Rear-panel +/- 6 dB shelf filters for >5 kHz and <300 Hz
- XLR and RCA inputs
- Adam's 5-year warranty

Professional engineers and industry publications have been nearly unanimous in their praise of the Adam A7X. Whoever said "You don't know him from Adam" was definitely not talking about reference monitors. More than just a deserving successor to the A7, the Adam A7X is a dramatic improvement on the original.

Product Description

The predecessor to the A7X, the A7, became the most famous of all ADAM monitors in a very short time. Not only has it been reviewed over three dozen times with outstanding results, it has also received numerous awards. The A7 quickly gained mass appeal, praised in many of the world's largest internet forums. Still today, the A7 are the reference monitors in many smaller studios.

With the A7X, ADAM Audio proudly presents the evolution of a legend. It takes everything that made the A7 such an outstanding speaker to a higher level.

Driver Technology

The first aspect that distinguishes the old from this model is the X-ART tweeter. The 'X' stands for 'eXtended frequency response' and thus for one of the features of the Accelerating Ribbon Technology that has been drastically improved: the frequency response. It now extends all the way up to 50kHz. In addition, the X-ART tweeter has a higher efficiency and higher maximum sound pressure levels.

The perfect integration with the lower frequencies has been achieved with a designed 7" midwoofer. It has been redesigned with a much bigger voice coil (1.5") and is driven by an amplifier with twice the power compared to its predecessor. This combination produces an amazing sound and pressure levels with an almost distortion-free musical reproduction.

Amplifiers / Controls

Each driver has its own dedicated amplifier. A 50W A/B amp is responsible for the X-ART tweeter, while the midwoofer is being driven by a 100W PWM amp. The front panel includes a power switch and a control for the volume that retains the volume setting independently from the on/off switch.

On the rear panel are several additional controls: a gain for the high frequencies (+/- 4dB) and two shelf filters for high and low frequencies. To ensure greater compatibility, there are both XLR (balanced) and RCA (unbalanced) connectors.

5 out of 5 (32 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
"Upgraded from an older pair of used Rolands"
Sound: I am not a professional producer. These are for my in home DAW. I am very pleased with them and I am sure these will be the last monitor speakers I ever have to buy. Feature: Very simple to operate. I like the On/Off switch being on the front instead of the back like my pair of Roland monitors. Quality: VERY well made. Value: They are pricey but I think worth the costs as they will last me decades. Manufacturer Support: No opinion yet as they are new.
