The A7X is ADAM'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 the last recent years.

I was looking to upgrade the monitors of my fairly small control room. I was looking to get cleaner bass, truer mids and sweeter highs, while retaining the most perfect stereo imaging.
A7Xs are said to be amongst the top dogs in this price point, or at any price point if you ask me. Those nearfield monitors will just bring truth to your monitoring. To me, they're not hyping highs, but rather making them really clear, honest, and non-fatiguing at the same time. Low frequencies are really tight and if they're not, I'd be obliged to blame your room treatment. Mids are dead clear, which is so important and so overlook in many monitors.
After some use, you will come to one conclusion: they are not the most exciting monitors to listen to, they are not there to make your mixes sound good, and nor will it make it pleasant on any sources. This is because those monitors aim to tell you the truth and they are pretty good at that.
