The Adam T5V is a 5 inch studio monitor for beginning producers. You do not need an amplifier because it is an active monitor speaker. Connect the speaker directly to your sound card or computer and get started. Thanks to the XLR connector you ensure a balanced connection and prevent the cable from collecting noise. You will not hear any noise and make well-considered decisions about high-frequency sounds. You hear a lot of detail in the middle and high frequencies thanks to the ribbon tweeter. The detailed display tells you exactly where to remove frequencies and where there is still room in the mix.
