ADAM Audio A5X by MikeTSH
Adam A5X's are surprisingly well build for the price, offering a very narrow body that allows for them to placed discreetly within your studio or room. The 5" woofer is also, design-wise alone, very well made. The outer ring of the main woofer is coated with a plastic, with the cone being very strong. A lot of the time with monitor speakers one of my major fears has been the cone getting damaged in transport; with these I am far more at ease. The gain knobs on the front I was, strange for some, over the moon with. The fact that they snap to the -Inf, 0 and +14dB settings, 7, 12 and 5 o'clock, was incredibly useful, especially in helping keep volumes between the monitors even.
Initially I thought these monitors were extremely bass heavy, however, with some easy modification at the back of the monitors and adjustment of my room's acoustic treatment, these things really came to life. Incredible sound for the price, especially in the mids. I've noticed amongst others at the price point such as KRK's, many monitor speakers tend to suffer from an almost "smile-EQ" kind of effect, scooping out a ton of the mids which is a detriment to any mixing engineer, professional or hobbyist.
Honestly, save your money and buy these monitors if your price point is around £600. The A7X's ARE superior, but honestly, the A5X's are such a small step down from the A7X's, you'd be a fool not to at least consider them.
