    Adam Professional Audio A8X reviews

    A8X 8.5" 200W Active 2-Way Studio Monitor (Single) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent speaker I bought a pair during 2014 Holiday season here. I was shopping for good sound speakers for a while and actually listened to Yamaha HS8 in @. After the wonderful holiday discount, Adam is still twice as costly as Yamaha's. But boy, the sound! I'm glad I didn't buy Yamaha earlier. The money is well spent on Adam. I'm not a musician. I simply need active speakers to listen to music, mostly classic and vocal and some pop/jazz/country, basically everything except heavy metal or hiphop. I adjusted the low and high in the back and put them on good stands behind my desk and put my head at the sweet spot per instructions, then the clear and full spectrum sound just keep flowing in straight to my soul. I had B&W DM603 floor standing speakers before. I also have Sennheiser HD600 headphone (which I paid over half a grand a few year back). I feel that Adam is the most clear sound in both high and mid, for both instrument and human voices. Adam's low easily beats both. Front base port probably helps a bit here. It's not just the quantity, it's more about the quality of the base - very clean zero distortion base that simply surrounds me all over when listening to well recorded music. People say studio monitors are flat so may not be suitable for normal music listening. Well, comparing to B&W, I like this pair better. I never feel they add to or take away anything from the music. In fact, I start to notice some music details that I didn't know existed before. I like Yamaha HS8 too, especially its warmer rendition of human voices. But overall Adam's clarity/cleanliness throughout the sound range easily set itself apart.5 stars indeed.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cool focused technology! As a major label producer / mixer for artists, films and TV. I took a chance on these ADAM's as I was really intrigued by their new tweeter system. It really reduces ear fatigue and still delivers ultra accurate sound rep. The stepped rear EQ controls are excellent for fine tuning these monitors for your studio and needs.
