People often ask me about monitor speakers. For years I used Yamaha NS10Ms and a very powerful Crown Amp. I also had a pair of large Alesis Monitor Two’s. My own opinion is you need a really powerful Amp to drive any speaker. That’s what you pay for and that’s what makes a speaker sound good. I’ve been slowly saving a bundle of cash to build a all new studio here in NYC and it’s definitely time to make the NS10Ms secondary helpers. So money no object what would I get? Adam S3X’s! I’ve heard them a few places and in each room they were majorly tight, bassy, bright and beautiful. They have a pair hooked up at Guitar Center on 14th St. Would I spend almost $7,000 on speakers? I purchased my NS10Ms in 1995 from Sam Ash Pro. That’s 15 years of use and they are still going. 15 Years divided by 7k = $39 a month. Who need a new car anyway? In the end I don’t know if I will bite but it’s always nice to have a Lamborghini to dream about.
“With 800-plus watts of onboard amplification, the system is capable of SPLs exceeding 126 dB, offering plenty of headroom, which adds to the SX3-H’s superb transient response. Despite all that punch, any amp noise was almost undetectable and the SX3-Hs provided long sessions without listening fatigue. And besides simply sounding right, mixes made on the SX3-Hs translated effortlessly to other systems.” – Mix
