DetailsAVI's ADM9.1 monitors are a complete Hi Fi System in one pair of Compact speakers. ADM9.1 comprise of the highest Audio Quality 24/192 DAC, a remote controlled three input Preamplifier, two optical digital and one analogue RCA - an electronic crossover and two power amplifiers (75 WPC for the tweeter and 250WPC for the bass drivers). This makes them unique in being a complete Hi Fi system in a pair of stand, wall or shelf mounted speakers. All they need is zeros and ones. i.e. anything with a digital output. Conventional active loudspeakers are the standard in professional recording studios, but are a not a complete system because they do not usually have a DAC or preamplifiers built in, so these need to be purchased separately for domestic use. It is widely accepted that active loudspeakers sound better than passive ones. This is because the crossovers can be made truly transparent and power amplifiers can be optimised for the particular drive units chosen. Contrary to traditional Hi Fi opinion, you achieve a far better result by integrating as much of the system as possible. There are the massive savings to be made and it is no exaggeration to state that ADM9.1s will outperform, by an appreciable margin, separates systems costing many times their price. For example despite their costing much more, our Lab Series CD player and Integrated Amplifier driving Duos/ Pro-Nine-Plus/Neutron 4's -( or any passive two way speaker for that matter) - simply cannot sound as good, because the quality of the front end (any front end) is sabotaged by the passive crossover in loudspeakers. AVI sees no sense in docking an iPod with itís comparatively fiddly interface when iTunes in a domestically acceptable computer works so much better and gives access to so much more, or there are many excellent streaming devices like Sonos, Logitech's Duet or Squeezebox, Apple TV, Airport Express or Roku Soundbridge. You can even use a DVD or CD player. For music lovers/collectors ADM9.1s are the perfect solution. In these days of limited resources it's irresponsible of manufacturers to produce products that use multiple expensive metal enclosures to house everything, some with separate and larger add on power supplies, when there is absolutely no need for it in a properly designed system, especially when they cannot produce comparable sound quality to ADM9.1s that are a fraction of the cost.
Power amplifiers - High speed, linear, analogue bipolar, 75 wpc for the tweeters and 250 wpc for the bass drivers. Distortion typically better than 0.002% and dynamic range 120 dB.
Crossovers- High quality 4th order discrete analogue.
Preamplifier - High quality state of the art analogue preamplifier with two digital and one analogue input. Control is remote and volume settings are remembered for each separate input.
DAC- Up to the minute 24/192, completely jitter free design.
Bass driver - Very high power handling 6.5" paper cone drive unit with 1.5" voice coil and exceptionally broad bandwidth enabling phase perfect crossover at 3.4 kHz. Bass extension better than - 6dB @ 60Hz.
Tweeter - 1" Silk Dome tweeter with -3 dB point of 28 kHz.
System Amplitude response better than + or - 2 dB 100 Hz - 20 kHz.
Max continuous SPL (both driven 1 m 100 hr rating) 108dB with 8dB Threshold.
