Junior partner in the T Series, ADAM Audio’s affordable line of professional 2-way active studio monitors, the T5V features a 5" polypropylene low-frequency driver that delivers bass extension down to 45Hz, while the company's U-ART accelerated-ribbon tweeter provides pristine highs extended up to 25kHz – quite remarkable for a monitor in this price range. The tweeter's broad, uniform dispersion pattern is assisted by a precision waveguide modeled on the High Frequency Propagation (HPS) waveguide used in ADAM’s premium S Series studio monitors, which provides an impressively wide sweet spot that liberates you from being constrained to a rigid listening position.

Until the new T series arrived, Adam Audio speakers were expensive and found only in pro studios. The T series is a low-cost option that brings their ribbon tweeter tech to the masses. These are the first Adam Audio speakers I’ve had a chance to listen to and they are very impressive. I love the tweeters! They are so much better that domes or horns. It took me two days to learn to like them, but once I did, I’ve become a huge fan.
First, the speakers aren’t midrange-focused like all other 5” monitors I’ve ever listened to. I think Adam is using DSP to flatten out the frequency response and it’s quite different from other small speakers in that they try and give you the whole picture with equal emphasis.
Like all small speakers there isn't much deep bass, but everything else (low mids, mids, highs, super highs) is balanced much more like it would be in a large speaker such as a studio main. Acoustic music sounds intimate, detailed and very clear, missing out on some depth in large percussion due to the small woofer. The very open high end really shines on vocals and acoustic guitar.
Second, the imaging is different, and I like it. Mono sounds are phantom centered, Stereo sounds are wherever they belong and not necessarily tied to speaker location, and everything seems forward. The speakers kind of disappear. Upper-low frequencies sound a bit boxy for my taste and make me look at the woofer, but everything else seems to float in front. On electronic music, sometimes the sound seems right at the ear, like headphones. The sound seems to be reaching out to you rather than you reaching for it.
FOR BETTER OR WORSE:
I listened to several song genres trying to get my ears adapted. These speakers sound great on digitally created music such as EMD and pop. Also, they shine on acoustic records that were meticulously recorded and mixed. Most rock and country sounded great, but a few songs sounded a bit off to me. They show the color and texture of a mix more openly than similar small speakers and if the mix has anything odd about it, you’ll hear it right away.
There is no power indication light on the front! I can’t tell if they’re on or not without going behind my desk to look at lights. I've left them on overnight by accident.
The tweeters are the stars and the woofers are decent but not great, so they did seem hyped sounding when I first tested them. It took me several hours of listening to get used to the extended high frequencies. I ended up getting the larger T7V instead and the bass in those is deep and punchy and balances out the amazing tweeters nicely. If you have the extra money and desk space, the T7V are worth the extra $100 per pair.
I have an M-Audio sub-woofer and struggled to get the T5V to sound right in the bass. That’s the main reason I returned them for the T7V. If you have a sub-woofer, you’ll want it in the center between these speakers. I couldn't do that, and the result was I could notice certain sounds coming from the off-center sub-woofer (not a problem with my Event ALP5 monitors I was replacing). I think it’s related to the higher than normal crossover frequency I had to use.
I don't think you can get a better set of truth-telling 5" monitors at this price. These Adam Audio T5V are perfect for a bedroom studio or a small video edit suite. You can get similar-sized speakers for substantially less, but these are in a different league and not directly comparable in terms of how they sound. The highs are so detailed and open and the frequencies so balanced that you get a much better representation of what you are doing. The tweeters aren't fatiguing, and if you have a quiet room you can monitor at low volume and still hear clearly what’s going on.
I definitely recommend the T5V. I also suggest you consider the T7V if your desk space and budget can handle it. I think they sound more balanced due to having deeper bass. Those are well suited for a serious home studio, small control room, or medium size video edit suite. Both the T5V or T7V sound more high-end than their price would indicate and are a tremendous value.
Now about the speakers. I read a lot of adds before decided to buy one speaker for test and compare the performance with my Bose headphones. I used one channel and switched to the other several times with different kind of music.
Not a good performance. When listened to orchestra I could hear the solo and bass, but the middle range was missing. Just noise!
Switching back to headphones I could clearly distinguish different musical instrument.
Using these for my desktop workstation, and Spotify work sessions have never sounded so good.

Consigue más claridad, mejores agudos, además de una tecnología más actual, los bajos son limpios, aunque algo limitados. Evidentemente, por menos de 400 la pareja, la mejor opción.
