Adam Audio has debuted the S Series, a new flagship range of nearfield, midfield and main studio monitors for audio recording and production professionals.
Adam said the new audio monitors represent the latest engineering innovation, modern materials and advanced DSP technology.
The third generation of the S Series line, the new speakers introduce the S-ART tweeter, a more precise version of Adam’s X-ART hand-built tweeter.
The S Series has five models of increasing size, the S2V, S3H, S3V and the largest-of-the-range, the S5V and S5H.
Innovations created specifically for the S Series include new long throw Extended Linear Excursion woofers; one-piece DCH dome/cone hybrid mid-range driver, lower distortion, higher power handling, newly designed waveguides for the tweeter (and the mid-range driver on the largest models) and a high-power DSP engine, based on the very latest generation of SHARC chips.
The SHARC chips provide crossover optimization, a voicing option and digital connectivity — providing expansion potential.
The cabinets of the entire S Series Line are constructed from thick, vibration resistant material to reduce unwanted resonance and coloration, even at the highest listening levels.
The design features rounded edges, which helps to minimize unwanted edge-diffraction effects. The finish of the S Series line is built to offer extra protection to withstand the stresses and strains of daily life in a recording environment.
The S Series line will be available in February.
