ADAM Audio ADAM A77X Powered Studio Monitor
In some set-ups it can be advisable to use a horizontally designed speaker rather than a vertical one. Until now, such monitors were only available within the SX top line.
The A77X, due to its outstanding features, might become a true game changer: Equipped with the same advanced technologies as the A7X, it therefore is very similar to the two-way speaker. The A77X, however, distinguishes itself by much higher, compression-free maximum sound pressure levels and dynamics. Due to its power and radiation characteristics, it also is perfectly suited for both near- and midfield monitoring.
Like all models of the AX series, the A77X features the ADAM proprietary X-ART tweeter. The ‘X’ stands for ‘eXtended frequency response’ and thus for one of the features of the Accelerating Ribbon Technology that has been drastically improved: the frequency response. It now extends all the way up to 50kHz. In addition, the X-ART tweeter has higher efficiency and higher maximum sound pressure levels.
The two 7” woofers are identical with that of the A7X. With their large voice coils (1.5”) and powerful amplifiers, they are capable of both very high maximum sound pressure levels as well as very deep registers. The woofers do not cover the same frequency bands: while both of them are responsible for the (sub-) bass frequencies up to about 400Hz, only one of them reproduces the midrange. This prevents interferences between the two drivers.
Amplifiers / controls
Each driver has its own dedicated amplifier. A 50W A/B amp is responsible for the X-ART tweeter, while the bass-/midwoofers are driven by a 100W PWM amp each. The front panel includes a power switch and a control for the volume that retains the volume setting independently from the on/off switch.
The rear panel features several additional controls: a gain for the high frequencies (± 4dB) and two shelf filters for high and low frequencies.
To ensure greater compatibility, there are both XLR (balanced) and RCA (unbalanced) connectors.

High end studio monitors
I basically purchased my KRK's first wanting a decent pair of monitors I could use with electronic music, but found they were not brilliant at reproducing the sounds I wanted from my classical based music (which is my main type of music), the KRK's were also not brilliant for stereo mastering, so I did my research and bought a pair of Adam A77X's, I found these have been invaluable for mastering and getting my orchestral sounds to sound exactly on the ball. I found that they work better mounted on stands and not on my studio desk, with sound proofing studs and matting (which I see alot of people do), but this is down to personal preference. I know there are not the cheapest of monitors, but a year on they have basically paid for themselves, and I find them excellent for productions where I've got a lot of tracks and need to hear absolutely everything within the mix, I find the bass response is very good also (I see alot of people complaining about this and buying the separate subwoofer to go with these speakers, but I found its not the case, but again this is personal preference and I guess if I were to produce Dubstep or Drum and bass it may be a good idea).
I got these on sale at around £600 a speaker, which looking on the net now is a very good price for them and are much better than my KRK's and my previous KEF reference speakers. But I use my Heco Lab 2 reference speakers for final playback, so don't use the adams for this purpose, but I guess you could as they are not too coloured and have a very good frequency response, unlike the KRK's which I now find add to much to colour to the mix and comparing the adams sound very refined.
