stompboxjon's review"Clean sounding monitors"

The ADAM Audio A7X is a powered monitor that is not only affordable but it has a great sound. You can do just about anything with these monitors from mixing and mastering to listening and creating with them. Each separate driver on these monitors has its own control, on the front of the monitor there is a power switch and a volume knob. On the back of them there are controls for high frequencies and filters for low frequencies. You can use these monitors with RCA cables or XLR cables.


I first heard about the A7X when I was in Guitar Center just looking around, I started looking the section where the monitors where and heard these. I was not there to buy monitors at the time but there was no doubt that these stuck out to me. About two weeks later, I went back and purchased them.


The sound is very flat, and they are perfect for mixing and mastering. The only complaint that I would have with them is that the bass is not thick enough for me. To everyone else they may be perfect but I like to have more bass in my monitors (even when mixing). But that is not the big of a deal because I have not heard many studio monitors that have a good bass response without having a sub hooked up.
These monitors are affordable and sound great right out of the box on all types of music. They have slanted corners on both sides to help with reflections making them great for near field monitoring applications. The tweeter is 50W and the mid woofer is 11W. I have been using these monitors on different projects since the winter of 2010 and they still sound great and look brand new. ADAM also offers great protection plans and warranties for a great price.

ouatshaout's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

I worked with at a friend's, the tweeter is demonic ...


The curve is fairly neutral, maybe a slight lack in the lower midrange or it's my hearing who can also play. The bass is fairly accurate and true, really do not hesitate to adjust slightly upwards. I left Yamaha HS80 M or I used to mix in the bass, with adam, this is the day and night, it took me back to my marks. Stereo image very good, you just bother to mix well. These speakers have great potential not necessarily simple to operate. But when it sounds ... it's on a big mac system.


I use it for 6 months, and after a slight adjustment period, it is a marvel. Value for very good price, this is an excellent intermediary between an entry-level and "pro" stuff.
In fact, for the moment, I really do not see the necessity to pay more. These speakers are small gems.

isasimon's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Excellent investment - 9 -"

Unbeatable value for money, I use this one for the studio mixing, sound design and music creation.

Its main support I have not been disappointed! After more than two years of use.


The frequency curve is sufficiently neutral?
The stereo image is good?
The sound is clear and precise on the spectrum?
The dynamics are respected? ...

I answered yes to each of these questions, the advantage is that two additional settings at the rear allows for better management of the space in which we work.


I would do this choice without hesitation!

pako3335's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Very good product."

-The sound qualitée! (As low as acute!)-For my home studio in mbox pro.


Very good rate and great dynamic! Made super clean.


Past year.

No one ...

The price ...

But I would do this choice without hesitation.

Adrien_mix_you's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Wouhouuu!"

everything you need!

power button in the front! yeah!
adjustment of volume in the front also

Sufficient connectivity XLR, RCA.

SETTINGS High Shelf, Low Shelf and Twitter level at the rear to correct defects such as sound parts


Accurate, neutral, spaced powerful Punchy ..




More seriously, if you want to spend good monitor speakers to 1000 € the pair (a little less even bought Bundled with Thomann on foot € 980 I think) they are perfect, they are the best for this budget.

exotica's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Fantastic"

I wanted studio monitor adapting to the place where I make music room 17m2, I use it for mixing and listening to CD, I have connected to a Yamaha AW 2816 (shortly I would pass on an audio interface).
So on these points that is exactly what I expected.


Yes it sounds neutral.
The dynamic is very good.
Listening to Beethoven's 9th close your eyes and you have the Berlin Philharmonic in front of you.
The stereo image is perfect. It is wide is accurate.
The sound is clear is clear. Perfect for mixing hears everything that is happening.
The small retail, small saturations and especially to correct any defect means.
You can spend several hours on it without straining your ears.
Perfect for Rock, Soul, Funk, Jazz and even classical, to what is hip-hop or electro those who want big bass worthy of a dance floor may need to take the sub -woofer, I feel the need to.

To monitor are perfect for mixing or listening, it generates a max low or high volume, without becoming mush.

These are the corrections I made.
A filter to cut some small infra-low risk of saturation.
Slight increase in the low mids.
I also down a bit high frequencies directly on the A7X.
It took 5 minutes
The sound of these monitor are amazing, you can go for without thinking too much you will not be disappointed.


I use them for a month and it gives me the highest customer satisfaction, I can mix my improved significantly.
Yes I had Yamaha MSP-10, Tannoy, the Alesis (it burned out after 3 weeks).
These are Adam that gives me the most pleasure and are less expensive than I had. (Go figure).
So yes I remake this choice, but I recommend them to anyone.

Season)'s review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Very nice purchase"

I was looking for studio monitor with a very good price / quality ratio.
My main criteria were the accuracy of course, but also aesthetically pleasing sound (all speakers are not for all ears) and longevity.

These speakers were recommended to me by several friends who have a good level in mix / mastering. I went to a specialty store, I tried 5 or 6 pairs of speakers during 2x2h, and I eventually went home with them.

At the config, they are plugged into a computer music environment on a Focusrite sound card. The aim is initially looking for her, and then mix / mastering.


Excellent response, crystalline highs (the ribbon thank you), good dynamics and stereo imaging with a very good record.

Note a slight shrinkage of the low frequencies, this is not a surprise, but nothing really embarrassing for me. Know your speakers to be able to mix properly with, and it does not happen in two weeks.


I use them for about a year now.

I would not compare, it's my first studio monitors, and separate rapid tests with friends or in store, I have not had the opportunity to make a real comparative review.

Still, only after the fact, that I will ever choose without hesitation the quality / price ratio for this range is undoubtedly one of the best on the market.

eferalgant's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" real speakers to work!"

having made a school or in addition to its main studio (equipped with Adam S3A) tt the boxes were equipped with adam a5 I quickly realized the difference in clarity with my prodipe pro5 I had then to age . After being able to compare the three models in the AX Series my store was chosen on the model "7" which provided enough power and the model was the most balanced of the range (too low on A8X and not enough on A5X). 2 weeks after this test I found an ad near me selling the pair 600 euros so I did not hesitate!

I use them with a Digi002 for recording, mixing and mastering at times.


to be honest it took me several months to really know them and master them. I mixed for 2 years on their default malgrès prodipe and I knew them so much that I adapted my mix accordingly. The Adam are quite neutral although the treble bcp stand out more than any system lambda (tape) my first exports were missing so often cymbals, it is the same for low, I recommend a sub to control time time what is really going to 30/40/50hz.

stereo image is excellent, the sound is very clear, we understand quickly what is wrong in the mix. Provided the sound is not "cold" or "sterile" and they are very pleasant listening.


10 months of use, after a rough start I am very happy, I can go further in my mixes with the prodipe. The price / quality ratio is very good. I have not had the opportunity to test other speakers in this price range but I think it is a purchase with no surprises. I would do the same choice if I test out the focal solo6be or a pair of Genelec in the same price range, just out of curiosity.

Side Key's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" The sound ADAM"

-What characteristics have motivated your choice?
The reputation of the brand. I knew someone who had a pair of A5 which I fell in love at the time.
So I decided to take the step in 2010 with the new arrivals to know A7X.

For what purpose?
Mainly for mixing, mastering and post production video.

What configuration? ...
Connected via an RME FireFace800 TRS outputs with XLR connector.


The frequency curve is sufficiently neutral?
Serious. These speakers are very neutral and accurate.
The first listening may seem "gaudy" and uncomfortable with the ribbon tweeter but we made it fast enough.
To overcome the problem, I reduce it to a few decibels the volume of the tweeter in order to have a more natural (less plastic). Otherwise it has a good chance that your mix / master sorely lacks treble

The stereo is good?
Excellent. I am a composer and arranger of the song in any kind. I love tweaking "bassline" with NI massive and it is at this point that one realizes that the quality of the boxes. Playing on different phases of oscillations becomes a breeze.

The sound is clear and precise across the spectrum?
More accurate you die. Any default mixer is audible. Something unlikely with a pair of yamaha ... They are very analytical which can disrupt your first mixes.

The dynamics are respected? ...


How long you use it?
I ordered my pair of A7X the first month of the official release.
Ie 2 years now.

What is so special that you love the most, least?
- The sound and crystal clear
- The surgical precision
- The setting of the volume and power switch on the front
- The ribbon tweeter / the cone carbon and fiberglass
- The Look
The least
- No digital input

Did you tried many other models before buying it?
Serious. Mackie, Tannoy, Focal, Fostex ...

How would you rate the quality / price?

With experience, you do again this choice? ...
Yes your eyes closed. Although I buy a pair S3X-H
The Dark Judge12/31/2011

The Dark Judge's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" 100% satisfaction - I love"

Discovered during the SATIS 2009, I could not part with my NS-10 ... but this year I finally made my decision.

honeycomb ribbon tweeter mounted by hand, massive body and releasing two évenst enough bass for my room, I am pleasantly surprised at not having to pay more than 1 dB bass and the treble 2dB .

Sufficiently large to avoid having to place a silicone grip underneath, the finish is the appointment. Button on / off and volume front, to combine the simplicity and performance effectively.


I left my vinyl turn of Mozart's Requiem for 3 days with a volume that is placed before the 75% max ... on each speaker. Next sound card I left the volume to 30% on my Audiobox 1818VSL ... and there, I do have a confession to make: it's breath away !!!!!!!!!

Well, spent three days running minimum, I started to listen a few pieces and open a few projects in Reason or Cubase ... I like it very much to hear a sound as clean and fine. The detailed high frequencies is really surprising and I do not even explain what the media tell me ... for those familiar with the NS-10, they know I have to change the world ... even if the NS-10 speakers are that it is imperative to have and master mix to ensure that all happen.

Honestly, even music lovers should buy these speakers, which are worth less than the pseudo Hi-Fi quality but give her a power and quality and with a return far exceeding the JBL, BOSE or the other out CABASSE price ...

Dynamic side, all my components and what I hear seems to be refunded 100% of what is original ... when the stereo is perfect.


3 weeks of use now and I know that I regret a single thing:

not having bought sooner!
