The ADAM Audio ARTist 3 is their smallest and most compact monitor to date. The compact size of this monitor makes it perfectly suited for all environments where space is limited, but sound shouldnt be constricted. The ARTist 3 combines minimal dimensions with acclaimed ADAM sound quality, using the X-ART tweeter for the higher frequencies, which guarantees crystal clear music reproduction. Countless studios around the globe are already using the X-ART technology in their ADAM monitors and treasure the precision and clarity these speakers offer.A 4.5 (basket) driver handles the lower registers and a stiff, lightweight carbon fiber diaphragm delivers coloring-free sound. Two built-in 25W amplifiers power each of the drivers directly. The back offers two M6 screw threads for attaching a wall holder and a controller for fine-tuning the high frequency levels.The ARTist 3 stereolink function, enables the control of the overall output level of both speakers through either one of the two volume knobs according to how they are connected. It redefines the more familiar master-slave-configuration because each speaker can be in control of the overall volume. This allows for an easier set-up and change of the set-up. Just connect the source to one speaker, and then this speaker to the second and the system is ready to go.Both the ARTist 3 and ARTist 5 have no less than four different input sockets: RCA (Cinch), XLR, a 3.5 mm mini stereo jack and a USB port. This multitude of possible inputs allows the ARTist Series to connect to just about any analog or digital music source.
