(Open Box) Compact size with exceptional frequency response and convenience features.

The similar dimensions and name could make one believe that the ARTist 5 is nothing more than a revamped version of the multiple awards winning A5. Comparing the sound of the A5 to the ARTist 5 however leaves no doubt that the ARTist 5 is much more than that.

Just like all other models of the ARTist-Series it features the proprietary X-ART tweeter. The very data of this technology shows that it is at the forefront of what tweeters can accomplish. Numerous listening tests have confirmed this.

A 5.5 midwoofer reproduces the frequencies below 2.5kHz. The diaphragm is made from Carbon fiber/Rohacell/Glass fiber. This material with minimum weight and maximum rigidity prevents break up resonances, resulting in an outstanding dynamic behaviour and impeccable sound characteristics.

Convenient: the stereolink
The stereolink that the ARTist 5 offers, enables the control of the overall output level of both speakers through either one of the two volume knobs according to how they are connected.

It redefines the more familiar master-slave-configuration because each speaker can be in control of the overall volume. This allows for an easier set-up and change of the set-up. Just connect the source to one speaker, then this speaker to the second and the system is ready to go.

Universal: a wealth of connections
The brand new ARTist series does not only fascinate due to their compact dimensions and beautiful design but also “ as you would expect from ADAM Audio “ their superior sound quality. On top of that, this models offers a multitude of inputs.

The ARTist 5 has no less than four different inputs: RCA (Cinch), XLR, a 3.5 mm mini stereo jack and an USB port. This multitude of possible inputs allows the ARTist' to connect to just about any analog or digital music source.

    Comments about Adam Audio Artist 5 multimedia powered monitor:

    I've always wanted the AX7's. Thing is, they are expensive. MF had the Artist 5 series entered into the Stupid Deal of the day and I thought for 55% off I'd better give them a try.

    I have owned the pair of Artist 5's for 2 months. Every time I push sound through them I am awed. Every speaker I've ever owned now sound like tin cans! Amazing stuff! I find mixing with them a sheer delight. When I play back through bigger and smaller systems everything translates well.

    They seem tough, they look beautiful (I have the black pair) and I think I am going to enjoy these monitors for many year to come.

    If I could change one thing it would be the minijack connectors on the front of the speakers. There is one jack on each speaker (which is cool!), you would need a Y connector to use both speakers in stereo if you wanted to use a portable device to play back through them. I think it should be made so when you plug into either speaker it would activate both sides in stereo.

    I have a small East Village music studio where I specialize in recording rock, blues and pop music. I also do a lot of spoken word and voice over. Monitors are important to me.

        They add great sound to 80" TV. Not surround but excellent stereo.
