ADAM Audio has introduced the A5/Sub7 loudspeaker system for home, studio and desktop computer applications, and will be showcasing it at the upcoming Winter NAMM show in January (2010) in Anaheim.
The compact A5 uses the same ADAM proprietary transducer technology (ART) and the same woofer sandwich construction of carbon fiber and Rohacell as the larger A7 monitor.
Built-in amplifiers in the A5 with 2 x 25-watt powering capability control the drivers directly. A panel on the rear side features numerous controls to adapt the loudspeaker to the specific room acoustics or personal preferences.
The A5 features both balanced (XLR) and unbalanced (RCA) inputs, and Stereo-link, an exclusive technology of the A5 provides two additional inputs and outputs for the second stereo channel so the user can adjust the volume of both loudspeakers with one control only.
Desktop/table stands are available that have been particularly designed to optimize the loudspeaker’s acoustics. Designed to complement the A5 and A7 monitors, the Sub7’s small footprint allows for easy placement in small spaces.
The front panel features two motorized potentiometers to adapt the input level and crossover frequency settings for optimum performance. These pots can also be controlled with an included wireless remote control, allowing users to optimize sound reproduction from the user’s ideal listening position.
The Sub7 is equipped with both balanced (XLR) and unbalanced (RCA or Cinch) input and output connectors and numerous controls. A 0/180-degree phase switch and a switchable 85 Hz high-pass filter helps in finding the best settings for an ideal sound and performance.
The low frequency response of 31 Hz (-3 dB point) enables the subwoofer to reproduce a register of even this range in a highly authentic manner.
ADAM Audio will be at booth #7119 at Winter NAMM.
