ADAM’s S2V could be the ultra-revealing versatile nearfield monitor your recording setup is crying out for. John Pickford puts a pair through their paces
£1,499 EACH

Contact ADAM Audio, |

Over the years, I’ve heard several models from ADAM’s extensive range of monitors, yet the S2V – smallest in the company’s flagship S series – is the first model I’ve fully reviewed. The pro-audio market has been swamped with active monitors employing ribbon tweeters, so it’s great to finally audition a pair from the company that first brought this design concept to my attention. ADAM is a German company founded in 1999, its name an acronym for Advanced Dynamic Audio Monitors. Its products have earned an enviable reputation within the studio industry, with top-of-the-range models being used by such demanding organisations as Abbey Road Studios and the BBC. The smallest of ADAM’s S series, the S2V is a two-way nearfield design featuring a 7-inch (178mm) woofer coupled with ADAM’s S-ART ribbon tweeter, each powered by its own amplifier. The cabinet has rounded edges – to minimise edge-diffraction artifacts – and twin front-firing bass-reflex ports, aerodynamically designed to eliminate turbulence-induced colourations. A bespoke DSP engine offers a range of user-adjustable, storable parameters to optimise the monitoring system for your room.

About MusicTech

We’re very excited to reveal our new-look issue, which is on sale from Thursday 19th October, and we’ve gone the extra mile to give you something really special. Building up the courage to share your tracks over the internet is one thing, but performing them live is something else entirely. That’s where our cover feature, From Studio To Stage comes in. With 7-pages of expert advice from Matin Delaney you’ll be gig-ready in no time. Elsewhere in the mag we chat with Emre Ramazanoglu, who’s body of work includes several 2017 movie soundtracks as well as some of the biggest pop releases in recent years. Additionally we present our 10 tips to speed up your computer (without buying a new one), a retrospective on the Roland SH-101 and 6 reasons to buy more gear (as if you needed any). This and so much more in the new-look issue of MusicTech magazine.
