Which Main Monitors for my new Room
1 Attachment(s)
Hi Anybody!
I´m building a Studio and my Room looks like the attached Picture.
I´m searching for a Monitor System and how you can see the room is
30 qm and 3,5m high and the Monitores are build in the wall an should
be positioned horizontly.

My actual Monitor is the ADAM S3A with a Subwoofer.
So do you think it´s Big enough? if yes, how would you put it in the wall? h or v?
if not, what would you buy with a 10000 USD Budget?

I thought about the ADAM S5VA MK II, the Klein+Hummel O 410, and the KS Digital ADM10(maybe to big?)

Thanks for your Help!

The SLS S1065 is a great sounding main monitor for soffit mounting.

They sell for around $3500 each so a bit over your $10000 budget, but if you're considering the Adams, these are still cheaper than those. They are passive so you need amplification for the highs and lows as well.

I heard the prototype of KS digital ADM10. Get them and don´t look back. For my new room at work I finally bought ADM20+Sub because the room is quite large. If it were smaller I´d have bought the ADM10.
In other rooms we have O410 and O300 which are not bad by any means, but the ADM10 play in an other league.
