What customers say about "Key Specs"
Adam Audio T5V 5" Active Studio Monitor
  • The sound is amazing! Very happy. Go Adam Audio!
  • A week ago, I purchased these monitors due to my limited budget. And not for a second regretted. I expected the worst but I was really impressed with quality of this.
  • I’m sitting, listening and thinking - I’m lucky with T5V. They are specially tailored under my ears. Highly recmmend!
  • Coming from a non music maker, and someone who's never fiddled with good audio equipment, these speakers sound out of this world.
  • I usually record and mix electric guitars and do voiceover projects, and these monitors are providing me more than I need. Very happy with purchase pair of them.

  • The cabinets have lots of rounded edges and around the tweeter, also a bit of rounding around the bass port all this adds up to cleaner and more even frequencies.
  • The speakers themselves are absolutely insane, I don't think you could get better quality if you tried.
  • Did a lot of research on budget active monitors. Was choosing between the m-audio bx5 d2. Decided to go for the g3 rokit 5.
  • Very clear. Nice coverage at the bass frequencies and gives a good flat response.
  • They reproduce your music the way it was designed to be heard; Faithfully! Even though these monitors are nuetral, they really handle bass frequencies well for a 5 woofer.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Adam Audio T5V 5" Active Studio Monitor
  • Heavy and sturdy build, and a clean look make these monitors worth at least double what I paid for them.
  • The speaker housing is made of MDF. The walls on the inside are additionally lined with padding polyester. This make the construction prettu safe and solid looking.
  • These are some very decent speakers for their price and their looks. Go on and buy them if you want a set of small speakers.
  • After a lot of time i really understand that a good small monitor can give me all i need. And here are these speakers.
  • They're built very well, incredibly sturdy and have compact design.
KRK Rokit 5 (RP5G3-NA) Powered Studio Monitor (Generation 3) (Pair)
  • Quite amazing speakers.. incredible sound quality, latest hardware inside, intelligent design both electronically and aesthetically, and remarkably powerful too.
  • I am very pleased with the build quality of the KRK RP5 speaker and i will be buying another one.
  • These are much clearer, although they were also quite a bit larger than I was expecting.
  • Love my KRK's! All pros no cons. In white with yellow accents looks superb.
  • It small size is really great as it doesn't take up much real estate on your desk. Would recommend.

What customers say about "Audio"
Adam Audio T5V 5" Active Studio Monitor
  • Crisp, smooth treble response and enough bass to really hear the thump from a kick drum.
  • For a home studio, an important factor is the sound quality. And here ADAM will give odds in detail to any other speakers.
  • The sound quality of the new model has improved markedly in the low frequency region compared to the earlier model Adam F5.
  • They sound natural and "warm". You can hear everything but it does not sound "harsh".
  • Today I listened to the background noise of the amplifiers of Prodipe and Adam. Adam amplifiers have significantly higher background noise from Twitter.

  • For a small size they can fill most small to medium rooms and unlike many speakers the frequency remains the same regardless of volume.
  • I have not taken actual measurements, but my hears are good at detecting any type of noise, and so far I could not hear any noise at all.
  • These are easy to listen to for hours and you do need to fine tune the Hi and Lo EQ knobs to get the best near flat response.
  • These are studio monitors, however I have them at home connected to my decks. The sound quality is brilliant.
  • These speakers are amazing, really great flat sound, super for mixing and mastering.

What customers say about "Features"
Adam Audio T5V 5" Active Studio Monitor
  • If you are looking for pair of new good affordable ribbon monitors (there is cheaper and good monitors but with ribbon tweeters I have not yet come across) this is a right choice.
  • First and in my mind best thing, they do not fatigue ears. They have been advertised that with ribbon tweeters you can work much longer period of times, and they are totally right.
  • Surround sound is wow! I mainly use it for composing piano/strings music and it gives the clarity and richness to a whole new level!
  • They are very high quality and the tweeter is just different from the usual horn tweeters, not only with appearance, but with the qulity too.
  • The T5Vs greatly impressed all who heard them. They are accurate and neutral enough to deserve their professional studio monitor status.
KRK Rokit 5 (RP5G3-NA) Powered Studio Monitor (Generation 3) (Pair)
  • They look amazing between the yellow bass cones and the badge that illuminates when on.
  • They have XLR, 6.3mm Jack, and RCA inputs and have tried balanced and unbalanced which makes no or very little difference in the sound.
  • These really are quality, well built and heavy but sound great, clear punchy basslines and they look amazing too.
  • The sound quality is very good, the design match every single set up and it is worth the money as I don't think I am going to change them for couple of years now.
  • Worth the money. Bags of bass. Very nice clarity. Like the colours.
