These S3X-H monitors were part of a studio build that went on too long. So long that construction delays led our customer to eventually trade them in for the new S3H model. So these are unopened from purchase, and priced to go!
Additionally, we have installed brand new Digital AES/EBU, SPDIF input cards to sweeten the deal.
The S3X-H is the most successful model of the SX-Series as the highly evolved successor of ADAM's very popular S3A.
Designed as a three-way speaker, it includes two horizontally arranged 7.5" bass drivers, one 4.5" midrange speaker and the characteristic ADAM X-ART tweeter. The cone woofers are driven by three powerful 250 Watt PWM amplifiers that enable the S3X-H to provide amazing dynamic bass performance. Even if they are classified as midfield monitors due to their power capabilities, S3X-Hs are also ideal for reproducing spatial depth at shorter listening distances.
The top-class X-ART driver produces brilliant and transparent high frequencies. The three-dimensional spatial imaging and rapid, powerful midrange/bass response make the S3X-H extremely musical, dynamic and colourful. The S3X-H also provides clear representation of minimal changes in your mix and the corresponding sonic consequences. Long working sessions with the S3X-H are not fatiguing to the ear. Quite the contrary: the authenticity and brightness of this exceptional monitor enhances the creative process of musicians and producers around the world.
"The S3X-H convinces all along the line. ADAMs new member is all but just an improvement of a successful monitor. With a new loudspeaker design and painstaking tuning it is a first-class control tool in any studio. From now on, the monitor reference in the Professional Audio Studio is called S3X-H."
