The new Classic Series Mk3: Highest Fidelity
Soon after the introduction of the first series of the Classic speakers, they became well known as a glamorous way to enjoy the unique sound of the professional ADAM studio monitors. There are four main reasons for their success: The series is well suited for most room sizes due to the elaborate model concept; these speakers can be used in both stereo and multichannel applications; the attractive fine-furniture finishes; and the option of either active or passive designs.
Now, the third generation of the Classic series profits from technological improvements and new materials of the award winning high-end TENSOR series. The ADAM proprietary ART transducers, already a legend in professional studios and used in the older Classic series, give way to their successors, the new X-ART transducers. The new lower midrange drivers and woofers match the ones used in the ultra high-end TENSORs series. In addition, the bigger Classic MK3 models are equipped with new base plates and spikes to improve the decoupling from the floor.
Another new feature found in the active Classic MK3 speaker is the A/B amplifier, which has been designed by ADAM to perfectly complement the X-ART tweeter. This amplifier ensures that one of the outstanding features of the tweeter, its frequency response up to 50kHz, can be realized with no limitations.
With a height of well over 120 cm (48"), the Column is the towering model of the Classic range. Designed with the new X-ART midrange the Column MK3 now has better resolution than the previous model using the outstanding ART midrange.
Also, the Column features the X-ART tweeter combination with the brand new ADAM designed A/B amplifier. This truly unique ‘motor/driver-combination’ is nothing less but a guarantee of the best possible resolution and airiness in the high frequencies.
Furthermore, the Column carries two new HexaCone woofers, each driven by a 200 W PWM amplifier. The extremely light and stiff material of these woofers prevent break up resonances and thus contribute to the precision of the bass.
