Adam Audio S5V Studio Monitor Midfield 3-Way – 12 Inch

The ADAM Audio S5V is a Midfield 2-Way Studio Monitor. Designed for medium-sized and larger studio control rooms.

ADAM AUDIO S5V

The S5V main monitor offers all the raw power studio professionals would expect from a reference speaker of its class. Not only this, but it also reproduces full-bandwidth, high-resolution audio with complete accuracy and clarity.

ADAM’s Extended Linear Excursion (ELE) bass drivers and Symmetrical Magnet Assembly (SMA) technology were developed especially for the S Series. The 12-inch bass driver on the S5V benefits from both concepts. As a result, offering a quality of reproduction without equal in terms of accuracy, dynamic range and freedom from colouration.

The 4-inch DCH MF driver, with its unique hybrid dome/cone construction, handles the important mid-range information with extreme precision. Meanwhile, ADAM’s  S-ART folded-ribbon tweeter produces breathtaking highs. Furthermore, it ensures the soundfield is presented in all of its most delicate, filigree detail.

BUT THAT’S NOT ALL!

With S5V the off-axis responses of the treble and mid drivers remain extremely accurate. This is thanks to the addition of high- and mid-frequency waveguides milled from solid aluminum: ADAM Audio’s newly developed Mid-range and High-frequency Propagation Systems (MPS and HPS). The resultant stable, wide-ranging dispersion ensures that teams of more than one person can work in the loudspeakers’ sweet spot simultaneously, as is often necessary in larger control rooms.

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. What’s more, 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.

And, with S5V, 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.

In addition, a Class D 70 W amplifier drives the S5V’s bass unit. Further Class D designs provide 300 W and 100 W to the DCH mid and S-ART treble drivers respectively.

STATE-OF-THE-ART TECHNOLOGY

ADAM Audio monitors have earned a worldwide reputation as the preeminent tool for sound engineers. This is due to their technological innovations 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.
  • HIGH PERFORMANCE DSP MODULE: The high-performance DSP engine was developed especially for the S Series and implements perfectly tuned crossovers, guaranteeing optimal frequency response, and a dynamic range greater than that offered by traditional analog crossovers, with no loss of resolution.
