ADAM Audio A5X Powered Monitor excels at nearfield monitoring. Equipped with the X-ART(eXtended Accelerating Ribbon Technology) tweeter and a large (5.5") midwoofer, double bass reflex tubes, a 50W A/B amplifier for the tweeter and a 50W PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) amplifier for the midwoofer, a gain for the high frequencies (+/- 4dB) and two shelf filters for the high and low frequencies. Stereolink connects two A5X speakers in such a manner as to allow the user the option to control the overall stereo volume of the system from either speakers gain control. A wealth of truly outstanding reviews and many awards helped to establish the original A5 speaker as one "of the best small monitors" and a "great choice for the small studio." (Future Music, 01/2009). The similar dimensions and name could make one believe that the A5X is nothing more than a new version of the A5. A quick listening however leaves no doubt that the A5X is much more than that. Like all other models of the AX-Series it features the proprietary X-ART tweeter. The very data of this technology shows that it is at the forefront of what tweeters can accomplish. Numerous listening tests have confirmed this. A 5.5 in. Midwoofer reproduces the frequencies below 2.5kHz. The diaphragm is made from Carbon fiber/Rohacell/Glass fiber, which is the same composite structure shared in the next two bigger models. This material with minimum weight and maximum rigidity prevents break up resonances, resulting in an outstanding dynamic behavior and impeccable sound characteristics. Stereolink A very handy and exclusive feature found in the two smaller AX monitors is the Stereolink. This is accomplished by a pair of additional RCA connections that allow for a bypass of the second stereo channel to the other speaker. This new technology connects two A5X speakers in such a manner as to allow the user the option to control the overall stereo volume of the system from either speakers gain control. This makes the A5X a n...
