The Adam Audio A44H is a two-way Nearfield/Centre Speaker Monitor that features two 4-inch long-throw woofers designed and made using Multi-Layer Mineral (MLM) fibres (same as what you would find on other A-Series speakers) and Adam Audio’s classic X-ART tweeter.
The speaker unit is powerful, produces clear and concise sound and offers a low-profile alternative to the A-Series A7V Monitor without compromising on performance. The A44H speaker can be used at the centre in an immersive and 3D speaker configuration setup. The unit width stands at 19-inches which means it can be placed horizontally on a standard rack shelf, or the monitor can be mounted above or below a display.
Rotatable HPS Waveguide & X-ART Tweeter
Adam Audio use HPS (High-Frequency Propagation System) waveguide technology which means the tweeters can disperse sound with controlled consistency. The rotatable characteristic has been added to the A-Series, and is where the tweeters can be shifted in 90-degree steps. As a result it means that whichever way up the speaker is placed (horizontally or vertically), the HPS waveguide technology will be in full operation.
The Adam Audio X-ART tweeter is at the centre of the HPS waveguide, which is built using a new glass fibre polymer compound to produce clean sound and be free of unwelcome resonance.
Multi-Layer Mineral (MLM) Woofer
A lightweight, highly stable material has been used to construct the A-Series woofers, which contain a exclusive blend of mineral stone fibres baked together. The drivers used are specific to that model, including the mineral composition, layering and geometry. Combine this technology with the new magnet system, and you have woofers that produce high output with low distortion, thus delivering a clean low-end.
The A-Series woofers are driven by Class D amplifiers that aid in producing quality sound whilst reducing distortion. The tweeters and midrange drivers are powered by Class AB amplifiers that offer a natural and smooth reproduction of high frequencies. It is worth pointing out that Adam Audio carried out extensive testing to find the perfect components.
The A-Series of speakers maximises the use of transformative power of DSP-based electronics, which allows for more precise tuning and improved predictability compared to analogue-only speakers. In addition, there is the option for the firmware to be updated via an Ethernet connection where the latest developments in technology will be available, including voicings, filter types and features.
Room Adaptation and Voicings
Four bands of room adaptation equalisation (Treble, Bass, Desk and Presence) can be found on the rear panel. Furthermore, each band is adjustable and offers over 100 tuning options to allow for the placement of a speaker and environmental factor adjustments.
Voicings is a pre-defined sound profile that can be located on the rear panel of the speakers. There are ‘UNR’, ‘Pure’ and ‘Ext’ selections available. ‘UNR’ stands for ‘Uniform Natural Response™’, producing dynamic natural-sounding response curve of Adam Audio’s design (ideal for production, composition, song writing, and generally listening to fantastic music). Pure is a very accurate neutral-sounding selection, also referred to as the ‘flat’ setting (ideal for mixing and mastering) and ‘Ext’ is dedicated to the extended functionality that comes with A Control when connected via Ethernet.
A Control (Real-Time Remote Control)
A Control is a free downloadable software that allows the DSP-based functionality to be remotely controlled in real-time over Ethernet. It can control several speakers at once and adjust monitor levels, equalisation, delay settings and other useful settings.
Room Correction and Sonarworks Integration
The A-Series of speakers have been designed to acclimatise to changing preferences, requirements and environments. An embedded platform from industry-leading company Sonarworks houses advanced filters used to aid the acoustics within a room and calibrate the speakers.
Bass Reflex System, Cabinets and Mounting
The speakers offer great flexibility in that they feature deeper bevelling to reduce diffraction, thicker baffle walls to strengthen the cabinets and reduce internal vibrations and a flared-port design that optimises airflow and reduces port noise. Additionally, all A-Series speakers include an underside mounting interface which provides extra flexibility when it comes to positioning.
The Adam Audio A44H offer a 2-year standard warranty with an extension to a 5-year warranty upon registration in “My ADAM” User Area on the Adam Audio website.
