ADAM Audio Introduces the New A Series Range of Studio Monitors 

ADAM Audio, a member of The Focusrite Group, introduced their A Series line of studio monitors at this year’s NAMM show. The A Series is the successor of the multi-award-winning and long-time best-selling loudspeakers of the AX Series.

The ADAM Audio A Series delivers highly accurate, transparent sound across a full line of monitors that can be controlled remotely and in real time. Comprising five models, the A4V, A7V, A44H, A77H and A8H are the right fit for an array of professional and home studios — as well as broadcast, fixed-installation, 3D, immersive, and home audio environments. Innovations such as rotatable HPS waveguide technology, and DSP-based room correction and voicings enable users to tune speakers for their room and ears.  

The compact but powerful A4V is best suited to smaller studio environments, while the A7V continues the success story of ADAM’s most famous monitor, the A7X.  With the other three new monitors, ADAM Audio is breaking new ground in this price range: The A44H offers a low-profile alternative to the A7V while delivering similar performance characteristics. With a 19-inch width, the horizontally oriented A44H can sit in a standard rack shelf or be mounted above or below a screen. An advanced successor to the A77X, the true three-way A77H is a loudspeaker that capitalizes on the latest ADAM Audio technologies to deliver a rich, spacious, and enveloping sound. The pinnacle of the A Series, the A8H is also a three-way design with a different form-factor that delivers the extremely accurate and analytical sound required for critical-listening environments.

“Our R&D team has been working behind closed doors for many years to create this 3rd generation A Series line,” says Christian Hellinger, CEO of ADAM Audio. “We have employed best engineering practices, modern materials technology and advanced DSP to create the new A Series, a range of studio monitors that offer stunning clarity and low distortion, utilizing new woofers and midrange drivers. And probably most important for our end customers: the A Series speakers are designed to be adaptable to changing requirements, preferences, and environments. Using the A Control software, you can push advanced filters directly to an embedded platform onboard the monitors to help compensate for imperfect room acoustics. This embedded platform supports filters from industry leading third-party Sonarworks. Using Sonarworks SoundID Reference and a measurement mic, you can calibrate your speakers for a new room or shifting taste. Upgradable firmware allows these monitors to evolve, so customers can continue to capitalize on future innovations from ADAM Audio. An extended five-year warranty offer plus post-warranty support ensure these monitors will continue to perform at their best for many years to come.”

The two-way monitors A4V and A7V will be available for end customers from May, the A44H, A77H and A8H will be available at the end of the summer 2022.
