The smallest big sound ever...
With the ARTist 3, ADAM Audio present their smallest monitor to date, making it perfectly suited for all environments where space is limited but sound shouldn’t be constricted. The ARTist 3 combines minimal dimensions with the much acclaimed ADAM sound quality, by using the X-ART tweeter for the higher frequencies. A guarantee for crystal clear music reproduction. Countless studios around the globe are already using the X-ART technology in their ADAM monitors and treasure the market leading precision and clarity these speakers offer.
A 4.5” (basket) driver handles the lower registers. A diaphragm made from carbon fiber, a material that is very light but very stiff, delivers colouring-free sound. Two built-in 25 Watt amplifiers power each of the drivers directly.
The back offers two M6 screw threads for attaching a wall holder and furthermore a controller for fine tuning the high-frequency levels.
Convenient: the stereolink
The stereolink that both the ARTist 3 and ARTist 5 offer, enables the control of the overall output level of both speakers through either one of the two volume knobs according to how they are connected.
It redefines the more familiar master-slave-configuration because each speaker can be in control of the overall volume. This allows for an easier set-up and change of the set-up. Just connect the source to one speaker, then this speaker to the second and the system is ready to go.
"Both (ARTist 3 and ARTist 5) speakers sounded very good while listening. With their high precision sound even encoding artefacts in mp3’s were rendered audible." (c't 13/2011)
Universal: a wealth of connections
The brand new ARTist-series does not only fascinate due to their compact dimensions and beautiful design but also – as you would expect from ADAM Audio – their superior sound quality. On top of that, both smaller models offer a multitude of inputs.
Both the ARTist 3 and ARTist 5 have no less than four different input sockets: RCA (Cinch), XLR, a 3.5 mm mini stereo jack and a USB port. This multitude of possible inputs allows the ARTist’s to connect to just about any analog or digital music source. These speakers are proof that: Size doesn’t matter.
