ADAM Hifi-Speakers are no-compromise products for the discerning Music lover who looks for the best possible reproduction in his home. Groundbreaking innovation in electro-acoustic transducers, dedicated design works and superior materials are the cornerstones of ADAM Technology.
ADAM studio monitors
ADAM studio monitors are state-of-the-art, no compromise speakers intended for audio engineers who are interested in the truest possible reproduction of their recordings. ADAM monitors have been constructed with one design objective only: to achieve the most realistic sound quality for each speaker in the line. Groundbreaking innovation in electro-acoustic transducers, painstaking design and superior materials are the cornerstones of ADAM Technology. The authentic reproduction of recordings of acoustical events (a frequently discussed and subjective issue) is our yardstick in the unconditional search for the finest product possible. To achieve this goal we combine years of our own musical and acoustic experience and with feedback from the critical 'golden ears' of our professional customers, and double-check the results with the most advanced measurement techniques in order to ensure the finest sound reproduction available at any price. ADAM Audio produces a complete range of both passive and active monitoring systems to suit any given studio environment, from the smallest home/project studios to the most demanding professional environments and applications.
Accelerated Ribbon Technology
The A.R.T. (=Accelerated Ribbon Technology) tweeters and midrange units take a completely new approach in kinematics to move air and improve the quality of music reproduction. Based on the original works of Dr. Oskar Heil, who invented his "Air Motion Transformer" back in 1972, new electroacoustic transducers have been developed that are based on improved layouts and new materials. The membrane consists of a lamella like folded diaphragm whose single folds move according to the alternate current, thus squeezing air in and out. All other loudspeaker drive units, whether they are voice coil driven, electrostatics, piezos or magnetostatics, act like a piston, moving air in a 1:1 ratio. This is undesirable, as the specific weight of air is much lower than that of the driving mechanics. Speaking in terms of electrical Engineering one could say there is a bad match between source and load. The A.R.T. principle achieves a 4:1 velocity transformation between driving diaphragm and driven air, i. e. the air moves in and out four times faster than the folds itself are moving. This superior "motor" is responsible for the enormous clarity and transient reproduction that is to be heard from the A.R.T. drive units. read more about it at the Adam web site.
