ADAM Audio acquired by Focusrite Group


The Focusrite Group has acquired ADAM Audio in what is its first acquisition since going public in 2014. The Berlin-based studio monitor manufacturer joins the Focusrite Pro, Novation and Ampify Music brands in the Focusrite Group portfolio.

‘I am delighted that we have an important new addition to our family of brands,’ said Focusrite founder and chairman, Phil Dudderidge. ‘For the Focusrite Group, the creation and recording of music is everything. With a vision to create the most holistic creative experience for recording professionals and musicians alike, choosing the right high-precision studio monitor brand is key. Together with ADAM Audio we can achieve so much more, removing the technical barriers that frustrate artists seeking to record and reveal their true sound.’

ADAM Audio will remain autonomous and continue as its own brand from its Berlin headquarters under the leadership of Christian Hellinger.

‘What a perfect beginning for the next chapter of our great company’s story,’ commented Hellinger. ‘I’m so proud of what the ADAM Audio team has achieved over the past 20 years, and can’t wait to see what we’ll achieve together with the Focusrite Group in our third decade of creating future-oriented innovative professional monitoring and loudspeaker technologies.’

Tim Carroll, CEO of the Focusrite Group, also commented: ‘ADAM Audio is undeniably a leader in the field of electro-acoustics. The A7Xs and S3s have become standards in recording spaces across the globe. Even so, I know the team have no interest in resting on their laurels. We need to ensure they receive all the support they require to continue raising the sonic bar. That our two companies are so aligned from a cultural perspective reassures me that, as we increasingly work together, great things will happen. With so much expertise between us in acoustics, sound reproduction, DSP, audio-over-IP and control, the opportunities are abundant to refine recording and production workflows together.’
