Adam ARTist 5 Black (Single) Product Description

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 both the ARTist 3 and ARTist 5 offer, 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, both smaller models offer a multitude of inputs.

Both the ARTist 3 and ARTist 5 have 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’s to connect to just about any analog or digital music source.
