At A Glance

Adam Audio's F5 is a great compact, near-field monitor for those who take their music (and music making) seriously.

There's a lot to like here, but the TD-M1 needs a more powerful amp and better bass repsonse to fully justify its lofty price tag.

The Pure Jongo S3 offers portability and flexibility in the form of Wi-Fi, wired, and Bluetooth connectivity, but its multi-room and Wi-Fi capabilities are limited as is its fidelity.
