CanSons StudioChooses ADAM S5V Main MonitorsADAM Users
The three masterminds behind CanSons, a chic new recording and sound design studio in downtown Barcelona, are obsessed with quality.
Featuring carefully crafted interiors and acoustic treatment, the latest technology and the best in analogue gear, Barcelona’s newest studio marries unrivalled audio quality with enticing aesthetics. A crucial aspect of the studio’s acoustic and visual DNA: a pair of ADAM S5V main monitors.
When planning equipment buys for their new studio, Eloi Caballé Viltró, Arnau Vallvé Socies and Aleix Sans Mauri decided that a first-rate monitoring system had the highest priority. Having learned of ADAM Audio’s excellent reputation, they decided to audition a pair of S5Vs. As the flagship mid-field monitor in ADAM Audio’s award-winning S Series, the S5V provides an unequalled monitoring experience, delivering clarity, a lightning response speed and raw power.
“It was love at first sight […]”
“It was love at first sight and we are already preparing the papers for the marriage,” the CanSons team joked during a recent chat with staff at ADAM Audio’s Spanish distributor, Adagio. “They give us a spectacular stereo image; this is an ultra-defined mono information. We are very happy!” Installation and attenuation were remarkably smooth, thanks to the S5V’s extensive DSP and room management features. “We had to make some adjustments because the speakers were embedded in the wall, and thanks to the internal software it was very easy and the result was impeccable.”
“They are a perfect blend of precision and beauty. The image envelops you, and added to their great definition and depth, the S5Vs make working much more pleasant.”
Asked about their experiences working on the S5V, the three studio owners replied, “We have never had a sub-bass response that was so precise. Usually it’s hard to find a pair of speakers that define the middle zone well, which is where you usually have more trouble. With the ADAM S5V it is finally possible to work the mix well in this aspect. When working with electric basses or synthesizers, we finally hear all the nuances we missed for so long. The highs also stand out for their smoothness and dynamics. They are a perfect blend of precision and beauty. The image envelops you, and added to their great definition and depth, the S5Vs make working much more pleasant.”
