The A7V is a contemporary 2-way monitor that represents the evolution of ADAM Audio’s award winning A7X. It features a 7” Multi-Layer Mineral woofer and rotatable X-ART tweeter, which is made by hand in Berlin.

DSP-based voicing, equalization and room correction options can be controlled remotely and in real time via the free-to-download A Control software, and updatable firmware allows for new filters and tunings to be implemented over the lifetime of the monitor.

“If a commercial studio wanted to add a pair of nearfields, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the A7Vs. Given my inability to imagine mixing without them, I’m buying my review pair.”

Ryan Morse

“No doubt, the new A7V from ADAM Audio is a worthy successor to the A7X and outperforms it in every aspect – not least thanks to its strong digital ‘heart’. We welcome this new alpha nearfield monitor to the upper class.”

Harald Wittig
Professional Audio

“All in all I am very impressed with the A7V’s. ADAM Audio have built on the success of the A7X and made a monitor that looks and sounds great. They are competitively priced and having the option of running Sonarworks SoundID Reference calibration profiles directly on the monitor’s DSP is absolutely fantastic. […] All things considered, the ADAM Audio A7V’s are an excellent choice of monitor and for what it’s worth I am pleased to say that they have easily found a place on my ‘highly recommended’ list.”


“With the A7V, ADAM Audio has introduced a new ‘industry standard’ speaker that offers more than ‘standard’ in every respect. […] We are dealing with a real price / performance winner!”

Fritz Fey
Studio Magazin

“While its easy to get carried away with all the digital add-ons, one fundamental fact needs to be stated: the ADAM Audio A7V is a great-sounding, high quality monitor.”
