ADAM Professional Audio – The Company

ADAM Audio was founded in March 1999 in Berlin. Since then the company has been developing, manufacturing and distributing loudspeakers in the field of Professional Audio.

The development of the X-ART (eXtended Accelerating Ribbon Technology) tweeter based on the 1960's invention of the Air Motion Transformer by Oskar Heil was largely responsible for the company’s founding. Producing sound not with a piston-like diaphragm as is done in most of the loudspeakers that are on the market, but using a pleated diaphragm that is capable of moving the air 4 times faster than the folds themselves are moving was the appealing idea behind it all. The achieved results were intriguing and gave ample reason for moving forward.

A giant leap forward was achieved with the use of modern materials like rare-earth magnets and high-strength diaphragm foils that made new driver geometry possible. New developements arose from the new design concepts that despite all of their innovative approaches showed amazing reliability, sound radiation characteristics, low distortion and high efficiency. With these improvements, a significant improvement was achieved compared to traditional driver technology.

The newly developed tweeter design became the embodiment of a transparent, highly defined and authentic sound that is the most defining development of ADAM's proprietary designs today. With the tweeter driver being made and tested painstakingly by hand in the berlin factory, ADAM’s high frequency driver proves itself to be a rare exception in times of automated mass production. From Berlin, ADAM speakers are delivered all over the world to satisfy the needs of audio engineers and music lovers alike.

At the same time, this technical innovation did define the aim of the young, ambitious company – “to raise standards in audio reproduction noticeably and audibly”. And indeed, the Advanced Dynamic Audio Monitors (ADAM) was immediately in a position to change the game of professional monitoring.

Since then, further innovations have been introduced:

The X-ART principle has been applied to the midrange.
By introducing Impulse Coupling (IC) ADAM was able to find a method to vastly improve the connection between drivers and cabinets.
The new X-ART tweeters and midrange speakers are characterized by an extended frequency range and higher efficiency compared to their predecessors. In order to realize the full bandwidth of the X-ART tweeter of up to 50 kHz, ADAM has developed their own A/B amplifier with a bandwidth of up to 300 kHz which has brought significant improvements to sound reproduction. ADAM now offers a range of unique monitors that receive rave reviews and appreciation from audio experts and audio recording engineers worldwide.

Based on its vast experience in the studio monitor market, ADAM Audio started to enter the HIFI market a couple of years ago. Ignoring the traditional gap between Pro Audio and HIFI, ADAM home speakers followed the consistent goal of their professional relatives: the reproduction of music should be as authentic as possible. This commitment to only the best possible sound was to bear fruit. In a very short period of time, ADAM home speakers have become synonymous with the highest standard in High End listening experiences and have found their way to many of the demanding HIFI and music enthusiasts around the world.

ADAM Audio has 50 employees at the Berlin factory and is represented worldwide through a network of distributers and dealers in more than 75 countries. ADAM has local branches in the USA (Nashville), the United Kingdom and China (Beijing). A growing number of the most famous and prestigious studios around the world own and use ADAM monitors. A wealth of glowing print reviews and a consistent stream of praise across many internet forums prove ADAM monitors as being among the most dependable and desirable audio recording and production tools available.
