Genelec has forged a path for itself – thanks to serious dedication and attention to detail – that has placed it at the forefront of the active monitor market. These distinctive speakers can be found just about everywhere, and many producers won’t use any other name.
It might be that you’re after the 8030A, Genelec’s compact, bi-amplified, near-field setup that will do the job in terms of workstations, project studios or even surround sound. Then again, if you’re even tighter for space than usual then the 8030B model has been calibrated specifically for encounters at closer quarters. Also perfect for compact use are the 6010A models, small enough to be of use to the travelling professional who can’t afford to be weighting themselves down.
In contrast, the likes of the astonishing 8620A monitors are tooled up with awesome cutting-edge technology that combines a coaxial driver with waveguiding technology. In terms that matter to you, it means that the energy between drivers is allocated perfectly, allowing them to concentrate on the areas that they were born to pump out of the box.
Meanwhile in the pricing middle ground lie the well-respected 8250A and 8260A models, ideal for the professional studios, editing suites and broadcast control rooms that need 24-bit, bi-amplified DSP brilliance and no-fatigue sound reproduction. Whichever Genelecs you decide are right, we can guarantee that you won’t be disappointed, and any and all models can of course be paired with a sub – the SE7261A, for instance.
