Simply stunning - Reviews ADAM S3X-V

Motivation:
Accuracy of transient response, quality of the stereo image, depth perception in real mix, beautiful record of serious remain accurate.
Compared to Dynaudio and K & H O300D: far far better in that price range

Usage:
home / project studio mixing and premastering hip-hop and electronica

Config:
Directly connected to the output of a RME Fireface 800

SOUNDS

Very linear frequency response up to 30Hz and treble what subtlety!

Dyanmique very well respected

Stereo bluffing (though better than the K & H Mackie HR 824 ,...)

We are rediscovering its mix, you can actually place the sound sources in space and when working in eq. refers directly when one is on the right / wrong frequency. Surgery!

OVERALL OPINION

Use since about a month

Before I had the buying unnecessary Samson Rubicon R6a, worked on Fostex PM1, Yamaha HS80, Mackie HR824, Dynaudio and Genelec BM12A and Far.
Then I got them in test compared with the K & H O300D (compared to last sound very bad: Soft, fuzzy bass and a big drag, much less precise stereo image, no sensation of depth)

What I like most: accuracy, we know where we go, we hear directly if this is done is right or not either working at the eq or by setting an attack time or release a compressor. ALL means!

What I like least: XLR connectors only (the jack would have been very practical) (but it is something to blame them)

Value for money:
far above its competitors in this price range

I would do this 1000 times without hesitation choice

These speakers have changed my approach in the mix gave me one and my confidence in my decisions. More than a tool, they are an ally!
