With decades of experience in designing professional sound systems for recording and broadcast studios and venues of all sizes, understands that under-powering is never an option. Serious reference monitors such as the S3V need authoritative power, and ADAM Audio obliges with a powerful proprietary 850-watt PWM ICE Power tri-amplification system. A 500W Class D amplifier drives the S3V’s bass unit, with additional 300W and 50W Class D amps dedicated to the DCH midrange and S-ART treble drivers, respectively. Combining the no-compromise precision of ADAM Audio’s custom drivers with the company’s custom amplification, the S3V is a reference monitor designed for discerning audio professionals and mission-critical applications.
S series monitors were designed without compromise to be high-precision professional reference monitors that flawlessly reproduce any signal presented to their inputs. You can expect outstanding transparency, dynamic response, and flexibility in placement and operation — and an open, natural, and non-fatiguing sonic presentation that will continue to please your ears and allow you to effortlessly make wise decisions throughout lengthy recording and mixing sessions. ADAM Audio's substantial cabinet construction is scientifically designed to minimize undesirable vibrations and their attendant coloration, while its rounded edges reduce diffraction distortion. Generous mathematically sculpted bass reflex ports on the front baffle help deliver bass reproduction with very low compression and allow positioning close to walls.
ADAM Audio: elevating the state of the art
From its 1999 launch in Berlin, ADAM Audio has built a solid reputation among the pro audio cognoscente. A superior speaker system has superior components, and this is one area where the company has a distinct edge. With years of R&D behind each proprietary driver, ADAM Audio's custom driver technology expresses itself in breakthroughs such as their X-ART (eXtended Accelerating Ribbon Technology) tweeter, which is based on a groundbreaking 1960s invention, the Heil Air Motion Transformer — and in fact, was the main impetus for the formation of ADAM Audio. The X-ART tweeter became the key to ADAM's signature transparent, high-definition sound; and the core development of ADAM’s proprietary designs going forward.
Constantly improving their proprietary technologies, ADAM Audio's new S-ART tweeter and DCH midrange driver are designed and manufactured to even tighter tolerances than their predecessors, with higher efficiency and extended frequency ranges. Another enhancement are the newly developed, solid aluminum HPS and MPS waveguides, which improve dispersion consistency and stabilize imaging over a broader area.
Embracing, exploiting, and working with modern materials has allowed ADAM Audio to formulate loudspeaker components that continually elevate the state of the art in studio monitor design. Materials such as rare-earth magnets and high-strength diaphragm foils have increased reliability, enhanced performance, and made possible new driver geometry. As compared with conventional driver technology, Adam drivers deliver optimized radiation characteristics, lower distortion, and higher efficiency. Along with installations in a growing number of top studios, ADAM Audio's monitor range has garnered rave reviews from audio experts and recording engineers worldwide. If you're considering an upgrade to world-class monitoring, you'll be in good company with ADAM Audio monitors.
