More than 30 glowing reviews, numerous awards, and countless dedicated fans made the A7, the predecessor of this new model, a true legend in near-field monitoring. Now, the legend continues with the A7X: All drivers, all amplifiers, as well as the cabinet have been revised, resulting in a speaker that claims nothing less but to be a new benchmark in near-field monitoring.Driver technology The first aspect that distinguishes the old from the new model is the X-ART tweeter. The X stands for eXtended frequency response and thus for one of the features of the Accelerating Ribbon Technology that has been drastically improved: the frequency response. It now extends all the way up to 50kHz. In addition, the X-ART tweeter has a higher efficiency and higher maximum sound pressure levels.The perfect integration with the lower frequencies has been achieved with a newly designed 7 midwoofer. It has been redesigned with a much bigger voice coil (1.5) and is driven by an amplifier with twice the power compared to its predecessor. This combination produces an amazing sound and pressure levels with an almost distortion-free musical reproduction.Amplifiers / controls Each driver has its own dedicated amplifier. A 50W A/B amp is responsible for the X-ART tweeter, while the midwoofer is being driven by a 100W PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) amp. The front panel includes a power switch and a control for the volume that retains the volume setting independently from the on/off switch.On the rear panel of the A7X are several additional controls: a gain for the high frequencies ( 4dB) and two shelf filters for high and low frequencies. To ensure greater compatibility, there are both XLR (balanced) and RCA (unbalanced) connectors.X-ART Technology The X-ART (eXtended Accelerating Ribbon Technology) tweeters and midranges incorporate a new approach to the Air Motion Transformer concept originally developed by Dr. Oskar Heil. ADAM Audio has improved upon this splendid idea utilizing superior geom

I'm coming from a pair of Yamaha MSP5s. The MSP5s were pretty adequate. I did some mixing and audio production on them, but they're also my main displays for everything from gaming to listening to music while working on non-musical tasks. I had real problems with mixes done on the MSP5s sounding wrong on other speakers.Sometimes tinny, sometimes bass heavy, always flat. Shooting the A7X next to those is like getting out of a Ferrari and into a Volkswagon. It's just an entirely different caliber experience.
How? Both are capable of putting out really amble bass in the room where I listen. The biggest difference is in bass resolution. Below 120Hz or so the Yamahas get muddy. They make the sound, they get some energy into it, but they just drone. You may not notice it until you get something capable of actually resolving in those frequencies. The A7X are much cleaner. Even in low frequencies they have a crisp and clear sound response.
There's something I can't really quantify about the new speakers too. Imaging is incredible. The sound field I find myself in is really wide, and incredibly immersive. I don't feel like I'm listening to speakers, they really vanish behind their own power. It's really amazing. The other thing is fatigue. This one I don't understand that well either, but I've definitely noticed that I get fatigued listening carefully for long periods of time on any lower quality display, whereas on great displays that fatigue takes much longer to set in. I've get to get truly fatigued on these displays, which probably means I simply haven't had a long enough session with them, but for 8 straight hours I can listen with no problems.
Are these the best speakers in their price category? Who knows. I didn't take the time to shoot them against Mackies and Genelec or any of the other major nearfield names. However after waiting to get really good nearfields for 10 years and working on middle-range nearfields, the difference is night and day. The sound is cleaner. Simply cleaner. So very clean. You will read reviews where people say they heard things in music they've never heard before. It's true. I hear things in music I wrote that I never heard in the recording on my old monitors. The A7X is incredible.Shoot it against your favorite brand if you want to tweak every parameter, but for clarity in small rooms these things absolutely do everything I could ask and more.
What I absolutely LOVE about these monitors is that you don't need an equalizer. So many different speakers I've owned over the years required some shaping of the signal to get it to sound decent. Even my Paradigm Studio 100 v5, Sub 12's and CC-590's on my home theater need a bit of help -- out of the box, with no fiddling of the controls on the back, they sound superb.
I would totally buy them again without hesitation.
*edit* Had a small issue with the appearance of one of the tweeters, wasn't sure if it would affect the sound, so I contacted Adam Audio, fired off a couple photos and they sent me a FedEx return label. A week or so later I had a perfectly repaired speaker back in my possession. Communication all the way from beginning to end. I LOVE this company!
Cons: A bit pricey! However, the customer service at the marketplace reseller (Alto Music) was simply exceptional! Way to go Sara!
