Though it is compact and lightweight, the Adio is equipped with a high-wattage power amp boasting 50W of stereo output. It delivers a startling sense of volume that outperforms other amps in its class. The 2 x 3”stereo speaker system makes for an incredible playing and listening experience.
Adio provides both the hard-hitting cabinet resonance of a bass amp, and the high fidelity of home audio speakers. Thanks to new concepts used in its cabinet structure, the multi-purpose Adio excels in both scenarios.
In spite of its high output power, the Adio can also operate on batteries. Eight AA batteries allow up to eight hours of continuous operation. At a mere 2.9 kg / 6.39 lb. in weight, the Adio is also highly portable. You can take it with you to enjoy performing or listening anywhere.
The Adio uses VET (Virtual Elements Technology). Instead of simply imitating the output sound of the original amp, VET meticulously models even its components and circuit design.
The total of 11 amp models includes not only classic amps, but also slap, rock, and modern. VOX have included only truly usable amp models that have been tuned to maximize the potential of the compact Adio.

Appropriately for the Adio with its stereo speakers, it is also equipped with high-quality effects, and you can simultaneously use a total of three effects including noise reduction. As with the amp models, using the Tone Room software lets you choose from a total of 19 types of effect: 11 for FX1 and 8 for FX2.
Tone Room editor/librarian software is provided, which lets you choose from an even richer selection of amp models and effects, and also lets you take advantage of the Adio's full potential by customizing detailed parameters and audio EQ settings. Up to eight customized amps and effects can be saved in the Adio. Tone Room runs on multiple platforms: Windows, Mac, iOS, and Android.

The unit provides four preset EQ settings for you to select as desired. Additionally, you can use the Tone Room software to make detailed adjustments to each frequency band of the parametric equalizer. Up to four of the EQ settings you've made can be stored onboard.
A noise reduction function is provided to reduce unwanted noise when using high-gain sounds. This can be adjusted in five steps.
The Adio also provides a tuning function that's indispensable for guitar/bass playing. The tuner also supports half-down tuning mode.
