ADAM Audio A77X Studio Monitor

ADAM A77X

The A77X is a horizontally designed monitor that combines all of the technical innovations in the AX-Series. Due to its powerful, compression-free sound reproduction and excellent radiation characteristics, it is suitable both for nearfield and midfield monitoring.

The special feature of the A77X is its 2 1⁄2-way system. Both 7” woofers start to work together at 38 Hz and at 400 Hz one woofer fades out and only the second woofer continues to operate in the midrange up to 3 kHz. This prevents interferences and possible phase cancellation in the critical midrange. Even though frequency transitions and potential distortions lie outside these areas, the human ear is particularly sensitive to midrange frequencies.

Especially noteworthy in the A77X is the extremely wide stereo foundation and brilliant stereo imaging. Treble and mids are reproduced with three-dimensional realism and the lows are, as expected from a double woofer design, massive without compromising on precision.

STATE OF THE ART TECHNOLOGY

ADAM Audio monitors have earned a worldwide reputation as the preeminent tool for sound engineers based on technological innovations that we’ve established in the field of loudspeaker technology.

Approved BY OUR PROFESSIONAL COMMUNITY

So there we have the ADAM A77X: an extremely able active monitor that´s capable of accurately reproducing frequencies from 38Hz to 50kHz in a seemingly effortless manner, even when being run at some pretty serious levels. This all comes with a price tag that actually represents very good value for money, given the level of performance that the ADAM A77X delivers.

Of particular note was the outstanding stereo imaging and enormous sound stage the A77Xs present. The Adam A77Xs are an outstanding monitoring solution.
Guy Harrison
Audio Technology Magazine
Mixing on the A77X was a pleasure because they didn´t cause fatigue during long sessions and they have no trouble resolving complex mixes. (...) If you are considering the purchase of a pair of monitors in this price range, you really need to hear the A77Xs. They combine all the attributes required for a studio “main” monitor: They can play plenty loud, maintain linearity at a wide variety of volume levels, reveal sufficient information such that they can be trusted for a tracking session, and mixes that are made on them translate well when heard outside of the studio.

I like the A77X a lot and they make a refreshing change from the usual mid-priced nearfield speakers.

Features & Benefits

Product Feature
Benefit to the customer
X-ART tweeter, handmade in Berlin
  • Allows longer operation with fewer signs of fatigue
  • Their breakup is prevented by the folded diaphragms, distortions are effectively reduced to a minimum
  • Advanced dynamic range due to acoustically effective diaphragm surface that is 2.5 times bigger (compared to a classic tweeter according to the piston principle)
The air velocity ratio of 4:1 during the sound generation by folded X-ART membrane

Direct, fast response in the high-range even with complex transients

In-phase, simultaneous operation of the woofers below 400 Hz
  • Dry, unstrained reproduction of the low-range
  • Critical center area is played by a single driver without interference
Ultra-light but extremely dimensionally stable woofer material (Carbon/Rohacell/Glass fiber)

Excellent transient response even at high sound levels without breakup of the diaphragm

Unique, horizontal 2.5-way system with 2 x 7" woofers

Very high resolution of the stereo image and extremely wide stereo base

Spacious bass reflex ports on the front
  • Bass reproduction with very low compression
  • Allows positioning close to walls
