A77X getestet von Pro Audio Review


Berlin, 28. Juli 2012

ADAMs horizontaler Nahfeldmonitor, der A77X, der die AX-Serie professioneller Studiomonitore komplettiert, zieht mehr und mehr Aufmerksamkeit auf sich. Rob Tavaglione vom Online-Magazin Pro Audio News / Pro Audio Review testete den A77X-Monitor im Juni 2012. Lesen Sie hier im Folgenden das Fazit im englischen Original.


Despite an awkward start on my part and given enough time in use, the ADAM Audio A77X won me over. This powered monitor is nicely frequency balanced, thoughtfully designed, capable of loud performance and factory guaranteed for five confidence-boosting years.

In my carefully weighed opinion, they could use some magnetic shielding, are a bit hard to break in, are slightly “highs forward,” a little uneven in their dispersion patterns, and could throw a little more evenly for mid-field monitoring. Conversely, I believe the A77X disperses nicely for a single listener application; centered in the sweet spot, they excel in the nearfield and have the richest low-mids and most delightfully bouncy bottom end of anything I’d dare to call “highs forward” monitors.

At approximately $2,800 per pair, the A77X is certainly not a budget monitor; they are destined for professional use. Yet for the market, I believe they are ideally priced, as the quite-similar Adam SX-Series S3X-H (with identical drivers and same horizontal config as the A77X) are priced at approximately $7,000 per pair. I’ve listened to the S3X-H monitors, too, and I find the A77X to be its impressively affordable alternative.
