ADAM Audio T5V 5" Powered Studio Monitor

Gearank High Notes

Gearank Recommendation

The T5V appeared on our recommended list for Studio Monitors Under $200 from October 2019 until we removed that category in February 2022.

Overview

For those in the know, ADAM Audio has been making waves in the recording industry the past decade with their innovative designs.

Using proprietary ribbon tweeters, waveguide, and baffle designs, the company has made its way into professional recording studios around the world.

With the T5V, ADAM's lowest-priced offering, they have been breaking into the home / project studio and prosumer market.

People have waited years for a more affordable ADAM monitor and they have done it; a great sounding studio monitor that offers you a healthy serving of the best ADAM has to offer from their top tier ranges.

Get it if you want in on the ADAM sound. Avoid it if you don't plan to get a subwoofer. For that, it's better to go up to the T7V instead.
