ADAM Audio have been keeping busy by recently announcing their new T8V Studio Monitor that has been specifically designed to fit in the high performance and affordability bracket, alongside the T5V and T7V.
The T8V monitor shares many of the same design innovations created for the acclaimed flagship S Series monitor range. The T8V features the accuracy, precise dispersion characteristics, and high dynamic range that has made ADAM Audio one of the frontrunners in studio monitoring.
Furthermore, the T8V houses ADAM’s U-ART Accelerated Ribbon Tweeter along with a newly designed polypropylene symmetrical-excursion woofer that will extend bass to lower frequencies with reduced distortion that was previously not available in this price category.
In addition, the T8V and the rest of the T Series include ADAM’s High-Frequency Propagation System (HPSTM) that yields a remarkably consistent horizontal and vertical dispersion across the whole frequency spectrum, built-in DSP-controlled driver crossovers and equalisation, multi-way analogue connections and finally a Class D amplifier system.
In the words of Christian Hellinger, CEO of ADAM Audio. “The engineering team at ADAM Audio was given a challenge. We asked them for a range of near-field monitors that will fit into tighter budgets without compromising the design standards that made ADAM a fixture in studios around the world. The T Series delivers, with wide frequency response, low distortion, and precise dispersion control in a value-conscious solution.”
The new T8V from ADAM Audio will be available for purchase around the end of May and priced at £239 per monitor. Find out more at the Studiospares website.
