ADAM Audio T8V

The T8V is an affordable, professional 2-way powered studio monitor with an 8˝ woofer and ADAM Audio’s latest addition to the T Series. Designed around the same technology, features and build quality as its smaller siblings, the T8V provides best-in-class characteristics and sound performance.

The T8V impresses with a multitude of features that bring real benefits to the user: The U-ART tweeter’s 4:1 velocity transfer ratio, in combination with the new Class D amplifiers’ high dynamic range, yield respective max. peak SPL of 118 dB per pair. The tweeter, which extends up to 25 kHz, works as a team with the HPS Waveguide. This allows an optimal radiation of the high frequencies, which means the advantage of a more controlled, larger usable sweet spot during monitoring. With a bass extension down to 33 Hz, the T8V is especially suitable for users who produce bass-heavy music.

The T8V is the perfect studio speaker for those who have always wanted to work with an 8“ monitor from ADAM Audio, but where budgets have been insufficient. The 5-year warranty gives users additional security and the certainty of having purchased a quality product.

"For about 600 Euros you get a pair of nearfield monitors that shine with a good and well-founded bass response on the one hand, but also with a precise reproduction of the stereo image."
Simon Kramer

"Stellar performance for the money. Lovely ribbon highs and smooth punchy deep bass. Pleasing to listen to and a reliable reference for translation to other playback systems."

"The precision and definition of this tweeter is amazing and unequaled within this price range. More and more manufacturers use AMT technology, but ADAM Audio is still in the top class. With the T-Series this technology is finally affordable."
Marnix Bosman
Interface Magazin
"The T8V monitors provide enough bass to feel in your chest—the SPL here is quite impressive. If you have a larger room that requires a loud and clean output, these deliver just that."
