We’ve always been fans of Adam Audio’s studio monitors but their unique folded ribbon tweeter and hand built in Germany approach doesn’t always come cheap so we were well chuffed when they brought out the more affordable F5 and F7 earlier in the year.

Now, it’s Adam Audio’s turn to be chuffed because as well as a blinding review in Sound On Sound magazine, they’ve just won the coveted “Best Studio Monitor” award in DJ Mag’s Tech Awards announced at the BPM show last week.


Big Klaus from Adam had this to say:

“We are absolutely delighted with this award,” said Klaus Heinz, CEO and chief engineer at ADAM Audio. “The fact that DJs from around the world voted for our F5 makes us very proud. It shows us that the decision to offer professional studio technology at a new, lower price point has been a good one. With the new F series, the many talented artists and producers of electronic music are now able to have the same great tools the world’s best producers and mastering experts rely on. The extraordinary clarity of the X-ART tweeter – handmade in Berlin – paired with the powerful bass reproduction of the woofer makes these speakers highly attractive.”

If you get a chance, pop into the shop and hear them for yourself and if you can’t make it into the shop you can order them on the site and you get 14 days if you’re not impressed (pretty sure you will be though)
