Adam Audio S5H Dual Studio Monitor Midfield 3-Way – 10.5 Inch

The ADAM Audio S5H is a Midfield 3-Way Dual Studio Monitor. A powerful main monitor custom-designed for the demanding rigours of reference listening in the world’s most expansive setups.


Designed for horizontal use, S6H features two 10-inch Extended Linear Excursion (ELE) bass drivers.

S5H’s woofers feature ADAM Audio’s proprietary Symmetrical Magnet Assembly (SMA). It guarantees that low-frequency audio remains tightly controlled and free of distortion at all times. The all-important mid-range frequencies are handled by ADAM Audio’s new hybrid DCH. This innovative 4-inch MF driver combines the sonic advantages of cone and dome drivers in a single, one-piece unit.

Together with the S-ART treble driver, the latest widely respected folded-ribbon tweeter now produces tighter tolerances than ever before. The result- powerful but unfatiguing sound with a palpable sense of depth: the last word in high-resolution, natural-sounding audio reproduction.

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

S5H’s DSP optimizes the loudspeaker crossovers to create linear responses, as well as providing user equalization and in-room tuning/voicing functions. The DSP also handles the limiter-based high-frequency driver protection, and processes the signals from the AES3 digital inputs. Furthermore, it 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.


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.
  • MPS™ WAVEGUIDE: the DCH mid-range driver is set into an additional waveguide, the MPS (Mid-range Propagation System). This ensures that dispersion remains wide and smooth even over longer listening distances.

Overall, S5H takes its rightful place as ADAM Audio’s flagship reference monitor: an extraordinary loudspeaker offering audio reproduction to the very highest standards of fidelity.
