ADAM Audio has announced the introduction of the S Series, a new range of nearfield, midfield and main studio monitors for audio recording and production professionals.
The third generation S Series range features new woofer and mid-range driver designs as well as the debut of the S-ART tweeter, a more precise version of ADAM’s X-ART tweeter with accelerated ribbon design.
The S Series is comprised of five models of increasing size, the S2V, S3H, S3V and the largest-of-the-range S5V and S5H.
New features created specifically for the S Series include highly efficient long throw Extended Linear Excursion (ELE) woofers; one-piece DCH dome/cone hybrid mid-range driver for greater dispersion, low distortion and high 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 latest generation of SHARC chips — which provides crossover optimisation, voicing options, and digital connectivity.
The cabinets of the entire S Series line are constructed from thick, vibration resistant material to reduce unwanted resonance and colouration even at high listening levels. The design also features large-radiused rounded edges, which help to minimise unwanted edge-diffraction effects.
"Under its new management, ADAM Audio has re-energised every aspect of the company, and our R&D team has been working behind closed doors to create this third generation S Series line,” said David Angress, chairman of ADAM Audio. “We have employed best engineering practices, modern materials technology and advanced DSP to create the new S Series, a range of studio monitors that offer stunning clarity and low distortion, utilising new woofers and midrange drivers and the S-ART tweeter — an even more precise version of ADAM Audio’s famous hand-built tweeter.”
The S Series line will be available in February 2017.
