ADAM Classic Pencil MK3

This smaller sister of the Column uses most of the same drivers as the Column MK3. While the new X-ART tweeter, driven by ADAM’s own A/B amplifier, makes even the most subtle details of the high range hearable, the low range shows impressive power accompanied by outstanding accuracy.

In combination with the materials and drivers, the main reason for this impressive power is the distribution of the frequencies in the two woofers. One of the two woofers acts as a full-range driver with the second woofer joining it only below 150Hz. This unusual approach effectively doubles the area and power of the low frequency woofer.

Despite the slim and elegant appearance, both the Column and the Pencil astonish even the most experienced listeners with both their subtle resolution and powerful deep bass.
