“I used the ADAM Audio A7X for a long time, a friend of mine advised them to me as ‘the speakers to have’. The A7X helped me tremendously. Recently, I was lucky enough to go pro in the music business and I wanted to have speakers built for professional use and that match my customers’ requirements. After having tested a lot of brands, I came back to ADAM Audio with the S2Vs.
When I heard them for the first time, I was surprised by their dynamics and I had to lower the volume because they are so loud. As a previous owner of ADAM Audio speakers, I knew about their clarity, but when I came back from the competitors, I found in the S2V the pristine sound that I liked with ADAM Audio (thanks to their famous tweeter), and which had a big influence on my music making and sound design.
The ADAM Audio S2Vs are wonderful without being eccentric. With their efficient compact design, the sound stays clear. This is what I was looking for. It’s very simple: without ADAM Audio, I would not be where I am now.”
