"Perfect "

ADAM Audio A8XPublié le 03/03/13 à 14:37
The ADAM A8X has the power and quality of sound that any engineer could ever want to work with. I have used these about 10 or so times so far and each time I use them I get a great mix and a master. The highs are very clean and crisp; the lows are amazingly clean and crisp no matter the volume or acoustic setting. The bass is very deep and tight, I am able to hear that very low frequency bass that I like to use just to add some thickness to the mix. In most monitors I cannot even hear the bass that is that low because the frequency range cannot handle it but that is not a problem with the A8X.

SOUNDS

The A8X are more expensive than what I thought they were going to be, after seeing the price of them I don’t think I would ever purchase them for my home studio or set up. I am actually looking for a pair of used ones in good condition.

OVERALL OPINION

These monitors have large bass reflex tubes and XLR/RCA connectors. The tweeter is 4 inches and has a velocity ratio of 4:1. There is a control panel with high shelve, low shelve, and tweeter gain. The A8X has a crossover frequency at 2300 Hz and an input impedance of 30 Kohm.
The precision and quality of these speakers in build and in sound is amazing and it is not hard to tell why they have been best selling monitors all over the world. If I had the money I would purchase these right now, but I am looking to get a used pair very soon. I have used other products from ADAM and they always have great quality products and customer support. Though the price is high, after using them many times I think it is ok to charge that much for them because they could be the last pair of monitors anyone would ever need.

" Very very good monitor"

After working on Yamaha HS80M which for me are inaccurate in the low end and low mid, I turned to Adam and A8X A8x why not A7x or A77X? because according to my area which is governed 25m2 I needed midfields monitorings which can descend to at least 38Hz and fill the sound space of my room and have a good performance. My usage is facing a work studio recording and mixing and mastering. I mix all of it.

SOUNDS

The great debate of the neutral curves or not! Be aware that all manufacturers will sell so-called neutral pregnant, yes anechoic chamber or in an acoustically treated room. My board is processed and despite its the first commissioning of adams A8x I had an excess of serious like......

SOUNDS

The great debate of the neutral curves or not! Be aware that all manufacturers will sell so-called neutral pregnant, yes anechoic chamber or in an acoustically treated room. My board is processed and despite its the first commissioning of adams A8x I had an excess of serious like tissues present on the tweeters. First steps to address this problem is to put a cd that you know very well frequentially speaking. Then adjust your speakers, then yes some will say it's sad to feel the response curve for monitoring sound called "neutral." But I reply that no monitoring is a neutral choice of monitoring is related to the couple "+ room monitoring" or as you SIXTI the curve of your speakers will change so you will have to edit it. So to return the setting after finding the right setting so here I stayed on the "buttocks" beautiful sound is balanced. After mixed on Adam A8x I can move on any system and I find everything I have heard on my Adam A8x. After A7x are great too can be a serious recurrence artificial around 42 hz remains my great for smaller rooms and the A77X for me have nothing to envy to A8x if not be larger speakers midfields.

OVERALL OPINION

I use them for 1year.
Goodies: beautiful acute not aggressive, a good dynamic, beautiful balance once settled.
Cons: A slight depression around the media, but nothing crazy
The value for money is very good I think to start work very bine sound you have to put in at least one thousandth of Monitoring.
I remake that choice without a doubt.

" very good monitors"

they must be run in 5 to 6 hours to get the max

SOUNDS

some say they lack the medium / medium high but they produce a lot of serious acute and extreme, you just refine from the local through the settings in the back, and after it became dangerous everywhere.
impressive stereo image

OVERALL OPINION

I have Dynaudio BM5A: dug in the medium, hard to mix with a prod ...
Genelec 8040A: Stereo speakers ...
adam bm7X and just before: very hard in the medium (a little yoghurt pot), tiring, grave just a little.
between 7x and 8x, there's no picture, 8X drive the 7 of all registers. (and fortunately for that matter) ...

My choice was versatile speaker: That is, both for the mix but also in music listening as a hi-fi. On these two terms it meets the criteria with some gusto. You will hardly find a price / quality / power as well.
I use an EMU 1212m with making his job very well for the price.


SOUNDS

Manufacturer figures do not lie:
they go down incredibly well in the bass (without a sub either, and maintaining good precision) and the highs are extremely clear. A peculiarity of its speakers is probably their directivity: The stereo image is really well respected. any mix moves with breathtaking ease, but be careful to observe the famous "triangle".

A peculiarity of its speakers is probably their directivity: The stereo image is really well respected. any mix moves with breathtaking ease, but be careful to observe the famous "triangle". Nevertheless, this image disappears as soon as you place the speaker 3m ear which is not necessarily a good point. It is therefore between near and Mields field.
There are two things to note really, but then very restrictive. Wheezy see a medium and also reduces performance of low volume low (due to membrane Rohacell) that does not help the poor medium for these speakers. So if the snare does not sound not worry, it's normal here ...

They are not flat at all, indeed that is what I wanted. Already with a medium average and also with a serious boost and a high medium that I would call aggressive so it oppresses the ear. At some point we feel to have a filter car-audio loudness when listening to electronic records, which flatters the ear well when listening to music quietly.

One last item dark, it goes down to 40hz but in fact I found that if you put it something more serious than it will, it will tell you! Let me explain: I had the experience to do some mixes for some short film by putting infrabass. Well you hold, you can easily slammed the pregnant if you stuck him in a 30hz serious hard enough (no stronger than a different atmosphere, either), they are also a sound that can be scary! . In short, it's not very serious, we take care to put a filter Be yourself (I put my cup in the bottom of the Patchmix emu).


OVERALL OPINION

I have been using 3 / 4 month. I've tried (for loan) pretty young model like rock and vxt krk series, or even small Yam or higher-end model in Dynaudio (BM5A and 6 ...) and so on and the best.
Brief.
Actually I have consumed not heard much before buying. I liked it Desuite. As stated above the value for money is one of the best on the market that range.

By knowing its flaws (which I tended to exaggerate a bit without being too extravagant in) mix everything happening in honest terms. Again I would point out that their performance is not great. Do not model in a small room to hear everything as though it must push the volume pot! ! IT IS NOT PREGNANT NIERFIELD!

I recommend always having a listening alternative with his pregnant because of their response rather flattering.

The choice would be to redo recess, view price and spec, you close your eyes on those "small" defaults.

In conclusion: this is good pregnant with their defects
_ Performance
_ No medium
_ Too serious and high-medium
And quality
_ Powerful (good dynamic background noise barely noticeable)
_ Stereo extraordinary
_ Strong
_ The filters at the rear part well balanced enclosure
