    ADAM Audio's Extended Linear Excursion (ELE) bass drivers and Symmetrical Magnet Assembly (SMA) technology were developed especially for the S Series, and the 12-inch bass driver on the S5V benefits from both concepts, offering a quality of reproduction without equal in terms of accuracy, dynamic range and freedom from coloration. The 4-inch DCH MF driver, with its unique hybrid dome/cone construction, handles the important mid-range information with extreme precision, while ADAM Audio's S-ART folded-ribbon tweeter, handmade in Berlin to the tightest possible tolerances, produces breathtaking highs and ensures the sound field is presented in all of its most delicate, filigree detail.

    The off-axis responses of the treble and mid drivers remain extremely accurate thanks to the addition of high- and mid-frequency waveguides milled from solid aluminium: ADAM Audio's newly developed Mid-range and High-frequency Propagation Systems (MPS and HPS). The resultant stable, wide-ranging dispersion ensures that teams of more than one person can work in the loudspeakers' sweet spot simultaneously, as is often necessary in larger control rooms.

    The S Series' custom-designed DSP optimises the loudspeaker crossovers to create linear responses for the entire range, as well as providing user equalisation and in-room tuning/voicing functions. The DSP also handles the limiter-based high-frequency driver protection, processes the signals from the AES3 digital inputs, and will in time facilitate various expansion options. Software updates can be carried out with ease via the associated USB port, which also allows users to connect computers and control the speakers' DSP functions via a software front-end.

    A Class D 700 W amplifier drives the S5V's bass unit, with further Class D designs providing 300 W and 100 W to the DCH mid and S-ART treble drivers respectively.

    Combining the legendary precision of ADAM Audio's proprietary drivers with the power of the company's amplification, the S5V is a reference monitor for truly discerning audio professionals at work in the most expansive listening environments.

    Newly Developed S-ART Tweeter, Custom Designed HPS and MPS Waveguides
    The S-ART tweeter is the latest iteration of ADAM Audio's renowned accelerated ribbon design, manufactured to much tighter tolerances, and a new custom waveguide has also been produced, milled from solid aluminium, to improve dispersion, projection and imaging, and to widen the sweet spot.

    New Bass Drivers with ELE™ and SMA™ Technology
    Looking at the changes included in the S Series in more detail, the redesign of the bass driver has included the creation, entirely from scratch, of: a new low-mass but highly rigid honeycomb driver cone, a highly efficient, self-cooling linear magnet assembly, a low-loss speaker surround, linear suspension and damping systems, a vented symmetrical voice coil and a new driver chassis/basket.

    These innovations allow the driver to handle more extreme excursions in a linear fashion without experiencing cone breakup, while the ventilation-orientated design minimises power compression. Even the bass reflex tubes and ports have been completely redesigned.

    Taken together, all of these changes make for a more accurate LF driver that can produce higher SPLs, with reduced distortion, and permit listeners to work with raw, uncompressed audio at higher levels for longer without suffering fatigue.

    Groundbreaking DCH™ Midrange Driver
    Looking at the mid-range driver in a similarly more detailed way, the new 100 mm (4-inch) mid-range driver is a dome/cone hybrid design offering the advantages of both dome and cone designs: excellent dispersion characteristics, low distortion, high power handling and a flat response. Many of the innovations designed for the new woofer also informed the design of the mid-range driver, including its new linear magnet assembly, speaker surround, suspension and damping systems, and chassis.

    High Performance DSP Module
    The newly developed, high-power DSP engine is based on the most recent generation of SHARC chips and provides perfectly tuned crossovers for enhanced frequency response, dynamic range and resolution, custom EQ for in-room optimisation, and digital connectivity, along with the potential for future expansion options.

    Fundamental Redevelopment Of Cabinets
    The aesthetics of the range reflect ADAM's heritage as a manufacturer of precision tools in a country renowned for the quality of its industrial engineering – but all aspects of the design are the result of practical considerations. The thick, weighty cabinet construction minimises unwanted vibrations and coloration, and its rounded edges reduce unwanted diffractions.
