Sound On Sound travels to Berlin to see how Adam's studio monitors are assembled
The common element in all Adam Loudspeakers is their Air Motion Transducer (AMT) tweeter, sometimes referred to as a folded ribbon. However, as soon became evident, the AMT has little in common with a conventional ribbon tweeter and offers a number of practical advantages. It is a time-consuming part to build, especially as each one is hand made in Germany, but it is responsible for the tonal character of the whole Adam range, from their smallest project studio monitor to their high end mastering systems. Paul White takes a look behind the scenes.
