Adam A5X

Near-Field Monitors


    A History of Excellence: A- and SX-Series

    The A5 and the A7, our critically acclaimed models, have won a string of awards and received four dozen glowing reviews in the worlds top magazines. They were equipped with the ADAM proprietary Accelerating Ribbon Technology and quickly became the benchmark for nearfield monitoring at a relatively low price point, while the high end S-Series could be found in major studios around the world.

    ADAM introduced a new top line of studio monitors, the SX-Series, at the Prolight & Sound (Frankfurt, Germany) and at the AES (New York, USA) in 2009. Now ADAM Audio proudly presents a similar evolution to the A series, the AX series. The new A5X and A7X are joined by two new models, the A3X and A8X. All models of the new AX-Series now profit from the technological improvements found in ADAM's top line monitors.

    The New Models: AX-Series

    The changes made to the A5X and the A7X are not simply developments but a fundamental revision of the A-Series. ADAM Audio took all aspects of the performance of the original A-Series and overhauled and improved them.

    One of the main improvements of the top line monitors SX-Series, the X-ART tweeter, now replaces the ART tweeter in the new AX versions. The X-ART tweeter features an even higher efficiency and maximum sound pressure level as well as a frequency response up to 50kHz. All woofers and amplifiers have also been reengineered from scratch, featuring larger voice-coils and amps with twice the power for higher linear excursions and more output. Last but not least, the cabinets have been redesigned, all models sport two bass reflex ports.

    Finally, two completely new models complement the AX-Series. The A3X is now ADAMs smallest monitor ever, and the larger A8X opens the door to midfield monitoring and is the top of the AX line.


    The original A5

    The small A5 managed to make itself a big name in both professional environments as well as in computer or desktop applications. A wealth of truly outstanding reviews and many awards helped to establish this speaker as one “of the best small monitors” and a “great choice for the small studio.” (Future Music, 01/2009).

    The new A5X

    The similar dimensions and name could make one believe that the A5X is nothing more than a new version of the A5. A quick listening however leaves no doubt that the A5X is much more than that.
    Like all other models of the AX-Series it features the proprietary X-ART tweeter. The very data of this technology shows that it is at the forefront of what tweeters can accomplish. Numerous listening tests have confirmed this.
    A 5.5” Midwoofer reproduces the frequencies below 2.5kHz. The diaphragm is made from Carbon fiber/Rohacell/Glass fiber, which is the same composite structure shared in the next two bigger models. This material with minimum weight and maximum rigidity prevents break up resonances, resulting in an outstanding dynamic behaviour and impeccable sound characteristics.


    A very handy and exclusive technology found in the two smaller AX monitors is the Stereolink. 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 A3X 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 A3X a natural for “mixer-less” desktop applications where overall system volume needs to be adjusted easily.

    Controls and Connectors

    The front of the A5X sports dual ports for surprisingly low frequency response down to 50Hz. The front panel also has power and gain controls. 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.

    Review: "The A5X: a superb impression."

    "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." (Stereo, 10/10)
