NATICK, MA, January 16, 2014 —
Genelec, the world’s pioneer in active monitoring, announces the
8010 Active Monitor, the smallest member of the acclaimed 8000 product
range. The 8000 Series is widely used in the high-end professional
audio, mastering, post-production and broadcast market
sectors around the world. Its professional heritage is reflected in the
compact-sized 8010. Suitable for professional work in small studios, it
offers accurate monitoring capability with ease of installation. The
outstanding sound quality makes the 8010 ideal
for small studios and OB vans, and a perfect companion for portable
recording devices and other mobile production work.
a balanced XLR input, 3-inch bass driver, 3/4-inch tweeter and
efficient Class D power amplifiers – one for each driver – 8010 produces
more sound pressure level than might be
expected from a monitor of this size. The Intelligent Signal Sensing
ISS circuitry saves energy by automatically putting the monitor to sleep
when the audio signal has been absent for a period of time. Once a
signal is detected again, the monitor wakes up
automatically. This circuitry can be bypassed when the automatic
standby function is not desired.
full range of versatile accessories is available for the 8010, which
cover all mounting needs. For example, an elegant L-shaped table stand
can be used to optimize monitor orientation
toward the listening position and to minimize undesired sound
reflections. Thanks to its exceptional sound quality, small size and
universal power supply, 8010 is the perfect monitor companion for music
production professionals on the move.
The 8010 Active Monitor will be available early 2014 at a U.S. MSRP of $440.00 each.
