I’m a recovering audiophile😂 the best thing ever did, was stop being one. When I look back at the money I’ve spent because I was continually disatisfied, it makes my eyes water. Then I discovered studio monitors, and I was done. My setup is now Focal Alpha 65’s with a Yamaha WXC-50 streaming preamp. Maximum inputs, streaming, and a speaker that goes clean down to 40hz. Bass and treble controls on the back, mean I can tune the sound to the room. (Audiophiles will say “oh no, you can’t have those it upsets the purity of the sound. Bollocks😂) Bear in mind, I’m in a near field situation. I turfed all my records, record player, Stax gear, etc. Files I use? AAC off Apple Music. Only costs me $11 a month. Tidal? Once you drop the audiophilia, it’s quite liberating for your mind, and your wallet. My system comes in at $1299 AUD and my OCD has disappeared 😂😂 Yes, that’s a Nintendo Switch. And an IKEA cabinet. That cost me $139 (cheaper then a hifi shelf😂) and the Focals sit on $8 Bunnings decking isolation pads😉

Item: ADAM A5 Active Monitor (PAIR) Location: Sydney Price: $500 Item Condition: Good (There are some minor chip and sticker peeling from age) Reason for selling: contemplating to upgrade Payment Method: Paypal As a GIFT or please add 3% surcharge, Bank Deposit Extra Info: Comes with the power cable, Manual and stereolink cable (RCA cable) Pictures: See attachment Just wondering if anyone is interested in an Adam A5 Active Monitor that i bought sometime in 09. These monitors are not sold as matched pair (seller told me no such thing as matched pair for this speaker) so they might not be tightly matched together as with Hi-End hifi speakers but they sound the same to my ears. I bought it mainly becase of the ART tweeter which is what made them famous for its detailed yet smooth sound. Item is currently used as my desktop speaker but i am contemplating of letting it go in order to get a bigger bassy sound speaker for gaming purpose hence the EOI. Note that these are Active speaker and while each of the speaker has a built in volume control on them i recommend you use them with a preamp device to control your volume to lessen the hassle of controlling the volume of each speaker. While there is stereolink feature i would suggest not to use it as it reduces sound quality as per reviews on the net. The power switch is at the front of the speaker which i find beneficial for consumer use when compare to most monitors where they have them at the back. These are said to be the smaller version of Adam A7 which is a very popular home Studio monitor. A review from fellow SNA member can be found here http://www.stereo.ne...__fromsearch__1 Postage is $30 for Sydney $40 for Melbourne/Brisbane Unfortunately pickup is not available since lately i am mostly busy at work and away from home most of the time. General Informaton about the A5 (More information about the Adam A5 can be found also in the attached PDF brochure): The most compact ART of ADAM Built on the heritage of ADAM Studio Monitors, which are employed in many of the most renowned recording and sound studios around the world, the new compact A5 brings the same breakthrough ADAM loudspeaker technologies to multimedia applications such as desktop recording, broadcasting, gaming, home theater and surround applications. The A5 uses ADAMs proprietary tweeter transducer technology (ART) and a smaller version of the same Rohacell woofer found in the most popular ADAM Studio Monitors. The A5 provides out-standing sound quality unprecedented in a speaker of such small size. Amplifiers and controls Two built-in 25 Watt amplifiers power the drivers directly. The front of the A5 sports dual ports for surprising low frequency response down to 55Hz, metal grills for durability, as well as power and gain controls. The rear panel includes balanced (XLR) jacks, unbalanced (RCA) jacks, and a host of EQ controls to tailor the sound to suit room acoustics or personal taste. Stereolink The A5 employs a new development by ADAM called Stereolink. This new technology connects two A5 speakers in such a manner as to allow the user the option to control the overall stereo volume of the system from either speakers gain control. This makes the A5 a natural for "mixer-less" desktop applications where overall system volume needs to be adjusted often and from a single control. Optional subwoofer and table stands (NOTE: These OPTIONAL items are not included in the sale since i did not buy them) ADAM Audio also offers a new subwoofer, the Sub7, which has been specially designed for the A5. Despite its rather small footprint, the Sub7 is capable of extending the reproduction of an A5 system down to 31Hz. In addition, there are optional desktop/table stands available that have been designed to optimize the acoustics of the A5. Adam_Audio_A5_Brochure.pdf A5_ReviewSelection_engl_dt.pdf
