Adam’s ribbon tweeters are what make these stand out from the rest. They provide an intense amount of detail in the mid-range and treble.
Their defining characteristics seem to be a non fatiguing sound combined with phenomenal transparency and a crystal clear mid-range. With other monitors you may be constantly testing your mix on different speakers. With the A7’s it’s one and done, resulting in more time saved.
Honest monitors with a lean bass response and non-fatiguing character.
Similarities & Differences
Both have a similar look and feel.
Both are very durable with solid construction.
Both excel in many of the same genres and situations.
Both have many of the same tonal qualities.
The A7X’s bass, mid-range and treble are all much better than the A7.
The biggest difference is the inclusion of the X-art ribbon tweeter in the A7X’s. It is said to vastly improve the clarity and extension in the treble range. The A7’s tweeter was also much harsher, and more sibilant. What does Sibilant mean?
The stereo imaging with the A7X is also better.
The addition of dual bass ports also improves the bass response for the A7X. Just make sure your room is treated (as mentioned above), or else the added bass may muddy up your mix.
The frequency response of the A7X extends to 50Hz rather than only 35Hz in the A7.
The bigger vocal coil and more powerful amps improve the overall sound quality of the A7X.
The A7X is more revealing.
