Berlin-based ADAM Audio is this month celebrating 20 years since it was founded in March 1999.
The company achieved its breakthrough on the international stage with its ADAM S3A active studio monitor, with many still serving faithfully in renowned recording studios.
The A7 (2007) and A7X (2010) models wrote new chapters in the company’s ongoing success story. Among the latest ADAM Audio products is its flagship S series – the first ADAM Audio speakers to feature DSPs.
In 2018, ADAM launched the T series, providing newcomers on a limited budget with the ‘ADAM sound’. In the same year the company also introduced its SP-5 headphones, a mobile professional monitoring solution.
“We’re very happy and, of course, also a bit proud that our studio monitors have been part of countless music productions over the last twenty years,” commented Christian Hellinger, CEO at ADAM Audio. “It’s a challenge – a wonderful and gratifying challenge – to be part of a creative process and to help artists, producers and audio engineers make decisions by providing them with innovative new technology when recording, mixing or mastering their material.
“Our ART tweeter still reveals details, even to experienced audio engineers, that the listener hasn’t heard before,” Hellinger added. “The X-ART and S-ART tweeters are still made by hand at our HQ in Berlin. But they’re far from being the only ADAM Audio innovation. Years of research and development continue to result in future-oriented technologies, such as our new driver concepts, digital signal processing and software solutions.
“The most important driver for our development was and is our excellent team who are passionate about our aspiration to develop, build and distribute the best studio monitors. Our customers have now trusted us for 20 years, showing us that we’re on the right path.”
To celebrate, ADAM Audio has created a limited white edition of its A7X speakers, in a production run totalling just 20 units. This special version will be available through several channels throughout 2019. One pair will be given to the winner of the company’s Instagram competition while another pair will be auctioned via eBay with all proceeds going to the charity Doctors Without Borders.
