|First heard at the prolight + sound show 2009 in Frankfurt, Adam Audio's new SX-Series reference monitors feature completely redesigned transducers, drivers and electronics to enable the most transparent reproduction possible. A significant evolution of Adam Audio’s critically acclaimed S-Series, all SX-Series monitors feature the new X-ART ribbon tweeter, which provides 4dB higher efficiency, an increased maximum sound pressure level of 3dB, and an expanded frequency response of up to 50 kHz. The SX Series monitor systems in 2.1 and 5.1 Surround will be showcased at 127th AES, New York City, booth #373.|
Other new components include a low distortion broadband A/B amplifier with 1MHz internal bandwidth, perfectly matched to the X-ART tweeter for a natural, uncolored sound with high resolution, and new Hexacone woofers with more linear excursion to optimize efficiency and accuracy.
The SX-Series consists of six different models ranging from small nearfield monitors to larger midfield monitors. To facilitate operation in any control room situation, the top-line S4X and S3X models are available in both vertical (S4X-V/S3X-V) and horizontal (S4X-H/S3X-H) versions.
Ideal for medium and larger sized rooms, the S4X-H midfield monitor combines the X-ART tweeter with a 5“ HexaCone midrange driver and two redeveloped 9“ HexaCone woofers. Designed for vertical installation, the S4X-V also incorporates the X-ART tweeter, with two 5” Hexacone drivers and a newly developed 12” Hexacone woofer optimized electronically for a bass-reflex enclosure.
The S3X-V features the newly developed 4” HexaCone midrange driver and 9” HexaCone woofer with the X-ART tweeter to reveal the most complex nuances of any program material with an open, transparent response.
Already a popular choice for leading studios worldwide, the S3X-H employs a 4” HexaCone midrange driver for more detail and musical coherence in the critical midrange frequencies, along with two 7” Hexacone woofers that produce a deep, tight bass within the same frequency and radiation pattern.
The compact S2X nearfield monitor utilizes a HexaCone 7”, X-ART tweeter and A/B amplifier combination to produce a powerful balanced sound with surprisingly deep bass for a smaller enclosure.
Embodying high quality sound in a very compact cabinet, the S1X monitor also combines the X-ART tweeter, A/B amplifier and HexaCone woofer driven by premium PWM amplifiers for crystal clear resolution and tight, precise low- frequency reproduction.
The front panel of SX-Series monitors feature sophisticated controls that allow the user to precisely adapt the speakers to the sound room. All SX-models (except the S1X) can be optionally retrofitted with a 24 bit/192 kHz D/A Converter featuring an AES/EBU (XLR) and SPDIF (RCA) inputs as well as an R/L/Mono switch.
