ADAM Audio S5V Active Studio Reference Main Monitors (Pair)

The Adam S5V active studio reference monitors are a 3-way front-ported design, optimised for vertical placement in medium to large sized control rooms and spaces. The S5V are an extraordinarily accurate and transparent speaker. They feature Adam’s S-ART tweeter, 4-inch carbon composite mid-frequency driver with MPS waveguide and a 12-inch woofer. The S series are Adam’s flagship range of professional audio monitors, and they all feature digital and analog inputs with custom DSP for managing your speaker settings. Hand-crafted in Germany, the S5V are for critical listening environments.

    • Adam S5V Features:

      S-ART tweeter, handmade in Berlin and manufactured to the tightest tolerances in ADAM Audio’s history:    
      Allows longer operation with fewer signs of fatigue
      Their breakup is prevented by the folded diaphragms, distortions are effectively reduced to a minimum
      Advanced dynamic range due to acoustically effective diaphragm surface that is 2.5 times bigger (compared to a classic tweeter according to the piston principle)

      The air velocity ratio of 4:1 during the sound generation by folded S-ART membrane:    
      Direct, fast response in the high-range even with complex transients

      Newly designed HPS and MPS waveguides, milled from a solid block of aluminum:
      Makes dispersion more consistent and imaging more stable over a wider area
      Reduction of early reflections on the surfaces of, e.g. mixing consoles, desks, etc.

      New midrange driver with one-piece hybrid dome/cone (DCH) design:    
      Offering the sonic advantages of both driver types, with minimal partial resonances
      Partly responsible for the excellent mid-range dispersion characteristics of the S Series, due to improved integration with the treble driver

      Custom-built Extended Linear Excursion (ELE) bass drivers:    
      Accurate audio reproduction at an extremely high resolution thanks to the precision-designed relationship between its low weight, optimized inner damping and highly rigid HexaCone membrane, in conjunction with a basket which has been developed to eliminate unwanted resonance and distortion

      Custom-designed Symmetrical Magnet Assembly (SMA):    
      Allows the voice coil a maximum excursion three times greater than that offered by previous designs, with an extended, symmetrical magnetic field ensuring linear, low-distortion operation
      Power compression effects are prevented by an intelligent self-cooling system

      Vertical 3-way system with 1 x 12” woofer and 1 x 4” DCH midrange:    
      Very high resolution of the stereo image and extremely wide stereo base

      Spacious bass reflex ports on the front:  
      Bass reproduction with very low compression
      Allows positioning close to walls

      Highly efficient PWM ICE Power amplifiers:    
      Low-distortion amplification at both low and high volume levels

      Linear frequency response of 26 Hz to 50 kHz:    
      Unbiased reproduction in a wide frequency band

      Maximum peak sound pressure per pair in 1 m ≥ 128 dB:    
      Powerful, compression-free sound reproduction even at very high sound levels

      Custom DSP engine:    
      Perfect crossovers for optimal frequency response and maximum dynamic range
      EQ options and presets for in-room optimization
      Limiter-based amp protection, AES3 digital inputs and board connectors for future expansion options, together with a USB connector for software upgrades and computer-based control

      Analog XLR input:    
      Optimized for balanced line signals

      Acoustically optimized and weightily constructed cabinets:    
      Reduction of susceptibility to vibrations and unwanted edge-diffraction effect

      2 years warranty with optional extension to 3 years with the registration of the product:
      Full repair service if required for 5 years
