I use these mostly for metal music and some electronic stuff etc. I have had these monitors about 4 months. Good time to write review.
I always was intrigued by Adam monitors ( I had null experience with ribbon monitors) , till now Adams have been little out of my price range. First I was going for Tannoys for my new monitors but Adam in this price range, I had to have these. Where I live there is not much opportunities to listen before buying so all monitors I have bough, I have bought based on reviews so I hope this helps you to decide. I am mostly home recording-song writing enthusiast. I have done it also professionally for some time but as soon as the fun part was gone and I decided to keep it more as a hobby and fun. I use pair Adam T5V in my home, no special room treatment etc. Recording, production, composing etc. you name it. In the past I have had Behringer, Yamaha and M-Audio monitors. So far Adam T5V have been the best ones. I do not know much of monitors, I just have bought the ones I could afford and felt decent monitors. So why Adam T5V are good IMHO. First and in my mind best thing, they do not fatigue ears. Yes they have been advertised that with ribbon tweeters you can work much longer period of times, and they are totally right. I have done long session 8-10 hour sessions and ears are not tired. With other monitors I have had, 8 hour session was already kind a pain. Second thing, they sound natural and "warm" ( I apologize if this is not right term but that one comes to mind). You can hear everything but it does not sound "harsh" if I am making any sense :). I do not have any experience with these monitors with dance/rap/ etc music with very deep bass so I cannot comment on that but If you are into rock/metal/ambient stuff, these work very well. Perfect for home or small studio. So if you are looking for pair of new good affordable ribbon monitors (of course there is cheaper and good monitors but with ribbon tweeters I have not yet come across) you cannot go wrong with these.
