      I score music for television and had used the older A7's for 3 years. It was time to upgrade so after reading great reviews on the newer A7x's I ordered a pair.

      The low end definition is translating perfectly to the mix stage and the new tweeter's in the A7x's are really sweet without coloring the sound whatsoever.

      I bought a pair of these a few years ago. I loved the sound but the woofers started going out and breaking up with lower frequency. I called Adam USA and could not get replacement speakers. I now own 2 $600 paper weights. It's hard to believe that Adam is a professional company.

        Comments about Adam Professional Audio A7X 7" 150W Active 2-Way Studio Monitor (Single):

        These are hands-down the best near-field monitors I've ever heard. As soon as I got them, I hooked them up to my Saffire and put Steely Dan's Aja on blast. Without so much as a minute of burn-in, I heard things I've never heard before in a recording I've heard thousands of times over decades. The depth of field on these things is truly three-dimensional, and the rough low-mid area that troubles a lot of near-fields is crystal clear.

        I run a small mix/master studio out of my house specializing in indie hip hop and electronic music, both of which have a lot of low-end information that can easily muddy and overpower a mix on an inferior system. With my previous setup, Yamaha HS5s and KRK Rokit 8s, I had to continually check mixes in earbuds, on laptop speakers, in cars, and on consumer systems, regularly finding mix irregularities I blamed on an untreated room. My very first mix on the A7xs sounded exactly the same on all the subsequent systems I tried it on, which marks the first time in my life as a producer/engineer I can remember having such a spot-on first pass of a mix.

        If you're considering the 5-inch version or even the ADAM F-series, step up your game and get these bad boys. They are the definitive best in class, blowing away similar priced monitors from Genelec, Focal and KRK. Also get the extended warranty.

          Comments about Adam Professional Audio A7X 7" 150W Active 2-Way Studio Monitor (Single):

          Ordered a pair of these in October, but they were on continual backorder and didn't arrive until a week ago. Having given them a chance to break in a bit and get used to the sound, I feel a bit more qualified to review them. For over 10 years, I'd been mixing on some decent monitors and was very familiar with their response. I'd moved into a new studio space and the backorder time allowed me to familiarize myself with the new room on well known monitors, a very good thing in retrospect. When the A7X's finally arrived, I plugged in one to compare with the existing monitor. The difference was remarkable. While the first monitor had a warm and pleasant low end response, the Adam seemed utterly transparent throughout the frequency spectrum. Its lows are tight and punchy, but not over emphasized, while the highs put the other monitor completely to shame. With a reputed frequency response approaching 50 kHz, the high end sparkles with detail and yet seems easier on the ears during sustained listening. In a word, they sound truthful, exactly what one requires in a quality near field monitor. Also, setting them up for optimal coverage in the sweet spot took a fraction of the time spent aligning the other monitors. So far, am happy with the purchase and it was worth the wait. Will experiment by tackling some remixes of recent work this weekend and expect to hear substantial improvements.

          Comments about Adam Professional Audio A7X 7" 150W Active 2-Way Studio Monitor (Single):

          I sought to build a simple yet extremely accurate stereo. OPPO Blu-ray 105, Alpha-Core Tourmaline Copper XLR cables and these monitors.

          This set-up does not miss "a beat".
          If it is on the disc, this set-up presents it.
          Do not let the size deter you... and I listened to the A8X's... too much bass; These A7X's ... I now further understand why these have won soooo many awards. These are really, REALLY that good of a monitor.

          I appreciate the listening room at B&H.. because I compared monitors which cost far more... yet these do not accurately display/present the music...all others were either...
          1. veiled... meaning it sounded like something was covering the speaker
          2. Distortion... the sound was not completely clear and distinct as on the disc
          3. Missing... you know what should be there, yet the monitor could not produce it.

          Not an issue with the Adam 7X's.
          Now, I have to note... cables have a bunch to do with all the signal coming from the DVD to the monitors... with the Alpha-Core... this will never be an issue; these present all with extremely minimal signal lost.

          I was worried about the speakers meaning tin on the bottom end.... NOT!
          The A7X's present bass... all the way down!

          One could spend more.. yet why?
          The only monitor that i think could beat the A7X's are the Event Opal Nearfield Monitors...
          at double the price. One would have to A/B them... with a music disc that they know!
          Don't waste your time... unless you just want something less truthful.

                      I was first introduced to Adam monitors at my previous production position by the head audio engineer. I knew when it came time to upgrade my home studio, Adam monitors were at the top of my short list. I debated on whether getting the Adam A5X models with a subwoofer or just a pair of the A7X. Because my home studio is small with untreated walls I opted in favor of a pair of A7X and no subwoofer. Absolutely no regrets. These things sound so amazing! Plenty of low end. This is one of the single best investments I've ever made for editing HD video. How good are they? My old monitors will soon be listed for sale.

                          Comments about Adam Professional Audio A7X 7" 150W Active 2-Way Studio Monitor (Single):

                          I had some experience with the earlier generation Adam A7. The new A7X model features some very nice improvements. Where the old A7 seemed to be a little subdued in the 40hz range, the A7X goes down to 40 without difficulty and shows signs of audio as low as 28-30hz.

                          It is hard to beat the ribbon tweeters for clarity and stereo imaging.

                          While I do tracking in a pro studio, I purchased a pair of A7Xs for my home setup where I can do editing and basic automation. I am tempted to take these speakers into the pro studio and try some detailed mixing. They are portable and just the right size for me.

                          I did extensive research before making any decision regarding audio monitors.Finely taking all data and reviews under concideration including listening to other monitors I did purchase Adam A7X. And I'm 100% satisfied, this monitors are simply the best. If come to audio sound quality a second to none. I give 5 stars to this product but they deserved 10 stars.

                          Balanced but with plenty of bottom end, these monitors rock. I use them at home with Ableton Live and Reaper and they sound solid all the way through the frequency spectrum. The ribbon tweeters make the high end especially smooth and they have a nice, wide 'sweet spot'. Buy these.
