Adam Audio S3H Dual Studio Monitor Near/Mid-Field 3-Way – 7 Inch

The ADAM Audio S3H is a Dual Near/Mid-field 3-way Studio Monitor. S3H sets new standards in terms of technical innovation and design.

INTUITIVE MONITORING

Powered by a 500W Class-D amplifier, the dual 7-inch bass driver offers flawless reproduction of frequencies down to 30Hz. What’s more, the DCH, a 4-inch hybrid dome/cone mid-range driver, is powered by a 300W Class-D amplifier. Furthermore, it handles audio above 250 Hz and below 3 kHz. But that’s not all! Its leading-edge hybrid design offering the sonic advantages of both cone and soft-dome drivers in a single, one-piece unit.

Frequencies above 3 kHz are routed to the innovative combination of the S-ART treble driver (each handmade at ADAM Audio’s Berlin factory), the new precision HPS waveguide, and a 50 W Class A/B amplifier. The result of all this innovation is a beautifully transparent three-dimensional soundscape, with an extensive sweet spot.

Optimally configured for use horizontally, the S3H was conceived as a midfield monitor. It can, however, be employed equally well in more compact listening environments. As with all ADAM Audio designs, the sound is punchy but musical, with crystal-clear reproduction of the all-important mid-range.

Features of S3H which appeal to audio professions the most include

  • S3H’s wide-ranging frequency response
  • its power amps’ instantly available
  • plentiful headroom
  • the lack of need for additional subwoofers

These make S3H perfect for anyone looking for a stand-alone, full-frequency active solution for their recording studio. Whatever your preferred output level, the S3H’s vibrant authenticity is a spur to creativity for producers, engineers and musicians everywhere, and its sound remains remarkably unfatiguing, even when working uninterrupted for extended periods.

S3H’S DSP

In addition, the DSP optimizes the loudspeaker crossovers to create linear responses for the entire range. It also provides user equalization and in-room tuning/voicing functions. The built-in factory EQ preset is a unique feature of the S3H’s DSP options. This emulates the response of ADAM Audio’s legendary S3A monitor.

Furthermore, 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. What’s more, carry out software updates with ease via the associated USB port. This also allows users to connect computers and control the speakers’ DSP functions via a software front-end.

STATE-OF-THE-ART TECHNOLOGY

ADAM Audio monitors have earned a worldwide reputation as the preeminent tool for sound engineers based on technological innovations that we’ve established in the field of loudspeaker technology.
  • ELE BASS DRIVER: Custom-built bass driver created specifically for the S Series. Featuring ADAM Audio’s engineering design experience and the latest computer modeling techniques.

  • DCH MIDRANGE DRIVER: A self-developed, groundbreaking one-piece hybrid dome/cone design, offering the sonic advantages of both driver types, with minimal partial resonances.

  • HPS™ WAVEGUIDE: The HPS (High-frequency Propagation System) waveguide ones the dispersion of the speakers to an even, uniform consistency, broad in the horizontal axis but tightly focused in the vertical plane.
  • SMA™ – SYMMETRICAL MAGNET ASSEMBLY: The new magnet assembly in the bass driver. Extends the maximum possible excursion of the electromagnetic voice coil by a factor of three compared to previous designs.
