"F5 5"" Powered Studio Monitor". "ADAM Audio monitors are found in top recording and post production studios all over the world, and now take their extensive knowledge of studio speaker technology and have created a more affordable entry line of monitors. The F5 is the smallest of the near field monitors in the F-series and has been designed for listening environments with somewhat limited space. Tweeter The F models feature a newly designed version of ADAM' highly acclaimed ART tweeter. Slightly smaller than the X-ART tweeter, it is the next step in this continuous evolution in tweeter design. Midwoofer As the name suggests, the F5 sports a 5A woofer made from carbon and paper and a 25mm voice coil. Despite the size of both the woofer as well as the cabinet, the F5 is capable of an astounding deep yet tight bass response. Controls Several controls to adjust the monitors to the environment are located on the rear panel: two room EQ' for both the high (>5kHz) and the low (<300Hz) frequencies as well as a volume knob (-EA3/4 to +6dB)."

I grew up listening to records of Stan Getz, Louis Armstrong, Clapton, Page, etc. I memorized every nuance of every song, I knew how they're supposed to sound. Then I graduated to CDs in the 90s when the record player wasn't an option, and the inherent loss of depth that comes with the format. I'd find myself anticipating the next note, or tone, and being disappointed when it fell short.
I'm quite passionate about quality sound, in whatever I do, be it my car, my headphones, or my work/movie speakers. I set up audio systems for fun, because I love getting everything dialed in *just so*.
That said, I put up with a set of ginormous JBL floor speakers from the 90s wired up to an equally antiquated all in one tower. They were horrible, muddy bass at best, no highs, and flat midbass that was very prone to clipping at moderately high volumes. Saved up some money and picked up a pair of these F5s and a Vamp Verza VModa DAC/Amplifier, along with some decent cabling and connectors. My phone can play 24bit FLAC files, so with some good source files routed through the DAC into these F5s, the sound that comes out just makes people stop and listen. The guitar notes from the Chili Peppers or Santana, the percussion from DMB, the saxophone from Getz, the cello from 2Cellos, the reproduction is incredibly well balanced. Songs sound the way they should, full, not missing any highs or lows.
The setup out of the box is straightforward, and I've had both speakers at roughly 60% for 8 hours straight and the back panels on both were only moderately warm to the touch. I mention this because it has temperature warnings silk screened on said panel, given that one of these things costs the same as a Sony 5.1 setup from Walmart, I don't beat on them. YMMV.
I'm just getting started with my system, but I'll look to Adam Audio first when I go to expand.
If you're on the fence between Adam and another brand, do it, you'll be happy.
I decided to augment these with a Dayton Audio Sub-1000 subwoofer, which rounds out this system perfectly. (This is one of the great speaker bargains around. For $119 at Parts Express, you can't go wrong.)
