ADAM Audio A7x

The A7X is ADAM Audio’s best selling nearfield monitor. It is one of the most balanced and versatile speakers currently on the market. The X-ART tweeter produces detailed, uncompressed highs and upper mids without being tiring over long listening periods. Despite its compact housing, the bass response is powerful and precise.

The tweeter is driven by a 50 Watt A/B amplifier and the bass/mid-woofer by a 100 Watt PWM amplifier. This achieves a very clean and nuanced reproduction of the midrange frequencies with a seamless transition in the crossover from the 7″ woofer, which operates in the range of 42 Hz to 2.5 kHz, towards the X-ART tweeter.

The A7X‘s ability to exactly reproduce every sonic detail no matter how small, its translucent sound image, tonal depth and stereo localization inspires music producers and explains why it is by far the most reviewed and award-winning monitor in recent years.

“A great sounding set of monitors that will help improve your mix craft.”


With the first beats after connecting the A7X to my Mackie Onyx mixer I realised that this speaker not only complies with the requirements of a daily studio routine but also does sound absolutely fabulous. (…) This speaker played so easy, airy and freely that it was a pleasure listening to it.


I expect the ADAM A7X to dominate the conversation for a long time to come.

Seldomly you get so much sound in this price range. Congratulations to ADAM. Mission accomplished.


I personally loved the A7X monitors from the minute I took them out of the box! They are very accurate and have a flat response, a lovely detailed sound and they will not break the bank, but should provide you with an accurate mix.

Tony Long

The A7X from ADAM Audio wins the race a long way ahead of the rest.

Sound & Recording: Top 5 Studio Monitors

„During the listening tests, the A7X produced wonderfully clear treble frequencies. Its tone was brilliantly balanced with strong impulse production and a bass response as deep as an abyss. The bass frequencies remained stable even at high volumes, and the overall sound didn’t become wearying even after longer listening sessions.“
