3-way active studio main monitor

 

Designed for medium-sized and larger studio control rooms, the S5V main monitor offers all the raw power studio professionals would expect from a reference speaker of its class, but also reproduces full-bandwidth, high-resolution audio with complete accuracy and clarity.

ADAM Audio’s Extended Linear Excursion (ELE) bass drivers and Symmetrical Magnet Assembly (SMA) technology were developed especially for the S Series, and the 12-inch bass driver on the S5V benefits from both concepts, offering a quality of reproduction without equal in terms of accuracy, dynamic range and freedom from coloration. The 4-inch DCH MF driver, with its unique hybrid dome/cone construction, handles the important mid-range information with extreme precision, while ADAM Audio’s S-ART folded-ribbon tweeter, handmade in Berlin to the tightest possible tolerances, produces breathtaking highs and ensures the soundfield is presented in all of its most delicate, filigree detail.

The off-axis responses of the treble and mid drivers remain extremely accurate thanks to the addition of high- and mid-frequency waveguides milled from solid aluminum: ADAM Audio’s newly developed Mid-range and High-frequency Propagation Systems (MPS and HPS). The resultant stable, wide-ranging dispersion ensures that teams of more than one person can work in the loudspeakers’ sweet spot simultaneously, as is often necessary in larger control rooms.

The S Series’ custom-designed DSP optimizes the loudspeaker crossovers to create linear responses for the entire range, as well as providing user equalization and in-room tuning/voicing functions. The DSP also handles the limiter-based high-frequency driver protection, processes the signals from the AES3 digital inputs, and will in time facilitate various expansion options. Software updates can be carried out with ease via the associated USB port, which also allows users to connect computers and control the speakers’ DSP functions via a software front-end.

A Class D 700 W amplifier drives the S5V’s bass unit, with further Class D designs providing 300 W and 100W to the DCH mid and S-ART treble drivers respectively.

Combining the legendary precision of ADAM Audio’s proprietary drivers with the power of the company’s amplification, the S5V is a reference monitor for truly discerning audio professionals at work in the most expansive listening environments.
