Supreme monitoring with ADAM Audio.

The pinnacle of the A series, the ADAM Audio A8H is a three-way speaker that delivers the extremely accurate and analytical sound required for critical-listening environments. The A8H incorporates an 8" resonant Multi-Layer Mineral (MLM) fiber woofer, innovative midrange driver and handmade precision X-ART tweeter, which together produce an ultrawide frequency response. Like the other members of the A series family, the A8H gives you tremendous flexibility for fine-tuning the sound through rotatable HPS waveguide technology and onboard DSP. At home across a full range of audio applications in mid- to full-sized spaces, the A8H is the right choice when you’re looking for the most detailed representation of your audio.

With five models of varying dimensions and specifications to choose from, finding the right speaker is simply a matter of taste and understanding the acoustic requirements of your space. For added flexibility when it comes to speaker positioning, the rotatable HPS waveguide means each speaker can be used in a horizontal or vertical position with minimal compromise in sound quality. Room adaptation options directly on the backplate of the monitor help address common speaker placement issues, such as bass overrepresentation caused by nearby walls and surfaces.

Superior audio performance

Every aspect of the A series’ design, material and components contributes toward exceptional sound quality and improved output when comparing similar models of the preceding AX series.

The combination of Class-D amplifiers used in A series woofers, and the Class-AB amplifiers found in the tweeters deliver impressive SPL across the range and an ultralow frequency response. The use of digital signal processing enables the more advanced features found in the A series.

All A series speakers come equipped with an X-ART tweeter enclosed in a tailor-made HPS waveguide. The high quality of the tweeter materials, folded by hand in Berlin, combined with the precise propagation control of the waveguide, results in superior dispersion of high frequencies over short and long listening distances.

A series woofers are constructed from multiple layers of mineral stone fibers baked together to create a lightweight but highly stable material that helps eliminate partial vibrations and other sonic impurities. By combining that material with a new magnet system, A series woofers produce high output with low distortion, delivering a clean sound for low-end material.

The elegant design of A series cabinets also contributes toward superior audio performance. Specifically, the cabinets have deeper beveling to minimize diffraction, and thicker baffle walls that reduce vibrations within the enclosure. In addition, a flared-port design reduces port noise compared with AX series speakers by optimizing airflow.

Truthful mixing

The A series features two selectable voicing options found directly on the back panel of the monitors. "Pure" is a highly accurate and neutral-sounding option. This is a super flat setting, offering an honest representation from your speakers and making it ideal for mixing, mastering and critical listening applications.

Sound with character

The A series also offers the characterful and present sound you would expect from ADAM Audio. "UNR" or "Uniform Natural Response" is a dynamic, natural-sounding voicing that is selectable on the back panel of the monitors. Its design stems from a variety of iconic ADAM Audio legacy products, including the preceding AX series. It lends itself to production, composition and songwriting as its engaging sound can give you more room for creativity and flow. It is also a great option whenever you want to use your speakers simply to enjoy some good music.

Compensate for less-than-perfect acoustic space

For many people, acoustic treatment is not an option due to the cost and complexity involved or because they use their speakers in a living room or bedroom. The A series offers several solutions to address poor room acoustics, from room adaptation equalization to deal with unavoidable nearby objects, to automated room correction available through the Sonarworks collaboration. Together these technologies can greatly improve the listening experience without the need for costly alterations to your space.

Save space with mounting options

The A series cabinets were designed with mounting in mind. All models feature four M8 threaded screw holes in a rectangular pattern.

Stay in the zone with remote operation

Much of the embedded technologies found in the A series can be controlled remotely and in real time via the A Control software application. This means you can focus on your project and monitor adjustments from your listening position without the need to reach behind the speakers to adjust.

Future-proof feature set

Software and firmware played an important role in the development of the A series and will continue to do so long after the launch of the speakers. With the Ethernet connection you can expect to integrate the latest DSP-based capabilities from ADAM Audio, including new filter types and features, plus alternative voicings, meaning your A series monitors will continue to deliver the best sound possible for many years to come.

Beyond stereo applications

The A series features a variety of input options, mounting possibilities and sound adjustability, making it suitable for multichannel and surround applications.

Free up processing power

ADAM Audio and Sonarworks have worked side by side to deliver an innovative integration running directly on A series monitors. This negates the need for an additional DAW plug-in, simplifying workflows and ensuring that your studio monitors are always optimally tuned, regardless of the audio source or type.
