Reading the article I was quite surprised that a veteran reviewer like Fremer had not ever heard of Adam.
I've had my eye on Adam for a few years now, exciting products top to bottom,....especially at the top. Saw a recent pic of Adam near-fields being used at the phenomenal Massenburg's/Blackbird room. Although their 21" sub is geared more for studio work and music,... than the demands of high excursion HT material, you gotta love a mfr offering an active 21" sub just because.
Also, I've heard a lot of large format mains, however I've never had the pleasure of hearing Adam's big mains below;
Their big line arrays would be quite the treat as well;
I've been tossing around some new near-fields myself. There's a market that off the chart competitive. Superbly performing products, at extremely high value prices. It is amazing what's availed to us if you wanted a small active two way. Whether it's Adam, or another mfr like KRK, JBL, Yamaha, and others,......the active/dsp contoured small near-field market is amazing for as little as $500 a pair. Hell, even hard core Behringer haters love them some Behringer 2031's,...a steal at under $200 apiece!
Sorry for the OT
