The winter NAMM show is quickly upon is. It starts this Thursday (1/16). We’ll talk more about how we’re covering it this year later in the week. But before all that new gear starts flooding in here we thought now would be a good time to get up to date on all the great gear we’ve been receiving for the past couple of months. We’ll return with our regularly scheduled inSync programming tomorrow.

Adam Audio’s A.R.T. (Accelerated Ribbon Technology) has been the buzz in Europe for a while and has now really taken off here in the States. What does it mean? The folded ribbon transducer – different from ANY other tweeter offered in the pro audio market – squeezes air in a 4:1 ration rather than moving it like a piston in a 1:1 ratio. This helps to deliver an extremely open and detailed HF response and outstanding imaging with a HUGE sweet spot. The S2-A is a two-way, shielded active monitor that features a 7.25″ woofer and the afore mentioned A.R.T. folded ribbon tweeter, each powered by their own 150W amp. They sound amazing – it’s that simple. Call your Sweetwater Sales Engineer today for more information.
