6 YEAR EXTENDED WARRANTY SCHEME

The product price includes 2 years' warranty and 30 day money back guarantee.

However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 6 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 180 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first 2 years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 6 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

X-ART Technology

The Adam ARTist 5 delivers the latest X-ART technology from Adam audio, featuring a custom X-ART tweeter with dual built-in amplifiers. The X-ART tweeter utilises Adam Audio’s exclusive, custom X-ART technology which uses new methods of construction to ensure the best possible audio fidelity. The X-ART design eliminates the piston-like motion of conventional drivers, with the X-ART diaphragm pressing air faster for a superior motor operation. This results in a better audio performance, delivering an extended high-frequency range that remains flat and transparent.

5.5” HexaCone Woofer

The 5.5” HexaCone woofer features a honeycomb Nomex core structure that results in the monitor being extremely lightweight yet stiff. Either side of the cone is coated with Kevlar, for optimal reliability, withstanding elongation and minimising deformation. The woofer itself is also ultra-light and comprised from Carbon, Rochacell and Glass fibres for an excellent transient response. The woofer is also matched with the other drivers so they work in unison to deliver and flat and transparent frequency response.

PWM & A/B Amplifier

The ADAM ARTist 5 Studio Monitor features custom dual built-in amplifiers to match the X-ART tweeter for an upgraded audio performance. The ultra-low distortion the amplifiers deliver ensures optimal audio quality with an excellent damping factor. In addition to the A/B amplifier, the ARTist 5 also includes a PWM amplifier for the woofer that provides low-distortion amplification with extended volume levels. The unparalleled authenticity and clarity further accentuates the frequency response of both drivers, delivering impressive clarity with a rich and deep sound.

Design & Connectivity

The ADAM ARTist 5 Active Studio Monitor’s diaphragm is constructed from a mixture of carbon fibre, Rochachell and Glass Fibre material providing exceptional transient response even at higher sound levels. The highly compact design, makes the ARTist 5 Studio Monitor once of the most portable and lightweight monitors on the market, ideal for home recording and project studios. The front panel of the monitor features level controls and a 3.5mm input for headphones and other connections. Attenuation controls including tweeter gain, low and high shelf features allow you to adapt to any acoustic environment for optimal audio accuracy. Analog XLR and RCA inputs are also included as well as a digital USB connection for easy connectivity to your computer. The integrated M6 rigging points allow you to mount the speakers to the wall with ease and the directional sound radiation reduces early reflection on different surfaces for enhanced audio performance.
