About the Product
The A77X, due to its outstanding features, might become a true game changer: Equipped with the same advanced technologies as the A7X, it therefore is very similar to the two-way speaker.
With its power and radiation characteristics, the ADAM Audio A8X Powered Monitor is suitable for both near-field and midfield monitoring. With a price/performance ratio that could hardly be better, this monitor is a perfect entry into these monitoring fields.

What customers say about "Key Specs"
Adam Audio A77X Powered Studio Monitor
  • The overall balance is outstanding I highly recommend these speakers.
  • I bought both monitors and they sound amazing. Very clear, wide stereo image and enough bass to feel it.
  • The monitor is very good quality. Corresponds to the description. I recommend this.
  • I dont think a Sub is needed with these but of course this is a personal preference.
  • This is a great monitor but unfortunately their have been component issues with the Adam A series.
Adam Audio A8X Powered Studio Monitor
  • I listen to primarily dance music so bass response is very important to me, and these are fairly impressive.
  • With jazz walking bass, every note is pronounced and very even. Blown away at what I heard. Installed at recording studio along with a full Danley system.
  • I have never felt that my mix was delivering something that they could not produce. Very revealing.
  • I just say that these bad boys are sturdy, thick, and destructive in all the right ways.
  • For a price ADAM beats most of the competitors in this price range.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Adam Audio A77X Powered Studio Monitor
  • I am a huge fan of good active three‑way loudspeakers. It's perfect size and weight.
  • Amazing sound and perfect for my room.
  • This is a handy little speaker with amazing sound.
  • Good size for me, perfect in my room, i recommend this studio monitor, thanks!
  • Adam A77X set, too big for simple monitor for this price.
Adam Audio A8X Powered Studio Monitor
  • Workmanship and design is, just as expected from ADAM, top-notch quality.
  • The A8X as monitors seemed massive. But this affects to the audio quality in a good way.
  • I am as mix engineer very happy because 38 Hz from this sized box is quite a feat.
  • In compare with oldest Adam model A8X looks Big & ugly, don't know why, probably the tweeter-woofer size ratio.
  • I think the A8X is "too big", the woofer makes the tweeter look "too small" disproportionate.

What customers say about "Audio"
Adam Audio A77X Powered Studio Monitor
  • I bought both monitors and they sound amazing. Thanks!
  • The ports are front facing so you have a true fullness to the bass resonance.
  • The overall balance is outstanding I highly recommend these speakers.
  • When you mix-down a song your high frequencies will not sound the same on other sources (other monitors, radios, iPods etc.).
  • With the monitor plugged in on a stand away from any source the noise/distortion still existed.
Adam Audio A8X Powered Studio Monitor
  • They are very smooth especially from 1-6kHz. I can't hear much above that. And I am satisfied with this speakers.
  • They are give an absolute transparent reproduction of the high frequencies, a good midrange and an excellent pulse fidelity in the lower frequency area.
  • A8X perfectly shows its abilities as a very capable nearfield monitor. I am satisfied with product!
  • Speakers has much better sound for drums, if you Mix & Master Drum Oriented music the A8X is for you.
  • While listening to opera, primarily female sopranos, the definitive fundamentals were not as pronounced.

What customers say about "Features"
Adam Audio A77X Powered Studio Monitor
  • I like this stuff, it looks like the stuff of my favorite home monitor. i recommend this.
  • I was told that X-ART tweeter is very good and of high quality, especially 7'woofers.
  • It's also great to have all the controls on the front of the monitor instead of having to reach around your equipment.
  • The stereo image is open with a lot of depth. You can hear and isolate frequencies effortlessly.
  • I had to return these monitors after the "A" monitor began to produce noise, crackle and distortion.
Adam Audio A8X Powered Studio Monitor
  • These speakers really have clarity throughout the spectrum.
  • These monitors are outstanding. With the addition of acoustic treatment opened my ears to all of the things going on in the mix.
  • These monitors with "X-ART" tweeter do sound different than conventional dome tweeters or horn-based transducers.
  • I like the extended bass response, it really fills the room. You can feel the air coming out of the dual front ports.
  • It doesnt have the tweak knobs on the back to compensate for room acoustics.
