carimbabar's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Balanced and effective"

I was seduced by the idea of ​​the ribbon tweeter, and the vents in the front, because I already knew that I might find myself working in a very small room.
I use it in monitoring, for models and even for discs intended for marketing.
They are active and do not require amp output cable on the sound card, and presto! In my case it is a Reverend Fireface.


There are so many speakers monitorings and more human ears to appreciate ...
I leave you with curves and other graphics, and speak in subjective terms, mine.
They are only worth what they are worth, but are sincere.
The sound is clear, highlights mixes and offers a good stereo image if indeed, that they have properly. Vents are practical in the case of cramped rooms, to prevent low back and forth to do the wall at the rear thereof.
Refunds dynamic seem to me rather not too bad, I listened to acoustic jazz, a guitar / vocal folk / rock (Johnny Cash), hip-hop (Q-Tip), and a piece of NERD and my mixes characters to find my way.


I've had a year and a half, soon, and before I had entry-level models: Tapco, M-Audio. It goes without saying that they sound much better, more accurate and broader in the spectrum. Store, I tried models in the same price range, with Adam, Focal, Mackie, or Yamaha. I had some hesitation with MSP5, fairly widespread, and on which I had quite the opportunity to work. I was looking for speakers offering not sound HIFI, which would be an error monitoring, but I wanted to work in good conditions, sometimes long hours, day and night without straining my ears, sometimes low and with a sound with relief!
I love the ribbon tweeter, which does not tire despite long hours of listening, and offer made quite natural on vocals and strings, in my opinion.
Are serious enough back, but hey, on such small speakers, it was obvious.
I did not have the budget for A7X, maybe I will opt for a low box later.
The value for money, not seem too bad to me.
I think I do it again this choice, they suit me well, they are reliable, and if we ignore some low light, you can work and time!
Otherwise, we love and sacrifices his ELP for the model above.

FreddoOumpapa's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Negatively amazed! Not without box!"

I was looking for small correct and properly assessed for the home studio monitoring speakers: mix adjustment and stamps.


Frankly, great!
Except between 40 and 75 Hz (roughly the first octave of a 4 string bass) where the speaker produces a wind noise instead of sound, even at medium volume. As if a scotch vibrated to the rhythm of boomer, boomer with, but suddenly, it's the sound of air that vibrates instead of the sound of the bass sound. So, impossible to work on the tone of the bass.
I said that this place, despite the size of the woofer can deliver bass quite correct but, then, with this defect, which is unbelievable considering the price of the object and the reputation of the brand. That's why I titled my review with the term "stunned".
This speaker is able (except the default) to me to deliver the right amount of bass to move from one box to the mix and work on sounds. But it makes noise in the bass instead of the sound. And therefore unusable for that. I do not believe it!

For the rest, this is a very good speaker that can produce a powerful and pleasant sound (maybe too much so??).


I have not had time: Back in toto before 30 days and return in a few days, return shipping costs deducted (15 euros for lot 2 speakers). Fortunately, I had good care packages.
So, my assessment on their site no longer exists: the logic should reside in the fact that evaluation is only possible if we have the product and not in case of return. Conclusion: The assessment system foo does not take into account the views on any returned product. Shame!

It was my first monitor speakers model.

So no A5X without their recommended box. And in this case, the result should be really bad since the filter will cut the offending frequency on satellites. But not to the 2.1 I wanted to lead me. So, starting in 1000 and not 666 euros at current prices in toto.

So I put 5/10: it would surely 8 or 9 with a box. Zero but without box.

Faroe Islands's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Very useful tool"

I needed a pair of monitoring speakers relatively inexpensive to finish mixing my last album.
After taking notice of nbreux departure and others, I chose this model for their righteousness, their size, price.

I use it mainly for mixing and monitoring when I'm recording. They are in a room non-smoking area, directly on my work plan.

The sound comes out of a RME FF400 connected to a table Samson.


Overall, they are fairly neutral, but a little tired in the low, it must be taken into account in the mix (the bass do not show much, we can fix this by adding up to 2dB for part of the spectrum but I am not using this).

However in the middle of the spectrum (well, in medieum and high-medium) and everything is sharp.

Dynamic I find it both great compared to what I used before, and a little disappointing. You lose a lot of precision in the most intense passages. However, to use force, I adapt ...

Very good stereo image, notwithstanding that they are close together (my home-stud is not a cathedral, unfortunately).


Purchased in March 2012 and used daily since.

I tested KRK, the Yamaha HS80 and MS10, M audio BX5, and Mackie (I forget which) and ICON. And then I let myself be guided by more experienced users than I ultimately trust the ADAM.

+ The size, neutrality, perfect size for my space, beautiful little face, nice accuracy above 200Hz.

The -: means anything below 75Hz, fragile membranes (and that's a BIG BIG MINUS).

Price / quality ratio pretty good, but I will not repeat that choice, I would take qqchose of beefier with better coverage of the spectrum. In reality, they are very good speakers to learn a shallow monitoring.
