FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Multi GRAMMY® and EMMY® Award-Winning Engineer
David Reitzas Reflects on the New Genelec 1032C Studio Monitors


AES Convention, New York, NY, October 18, 2017 — Noted live and studio engineer David Reitzas, a multi-GRAMMY® and Emmy® Award winner whose credits include such acts as The Weeknd, Josh Groban, Whitney Houston, Madonna, Seal, Stevie Wonder, Guns N’ Roses and most notably a longtime association with legendary artist Barbra Streisand as her engineer of choice for both live and studio work, is among the first to test out the new Genelec (booth 322) 1032C Studio Monitor.

An update of one of the world’s most popular two-way nearfield monitors (the Genelec 1032), the new 1032C has been upgraded to include additional cutting-edge features and the flexibility of Smart Active Monitoring™. Offering the wide dynamic range, pristine imaging and on/off axis response for which the Genelec 1000 Series is known, the 1032C adds the world’s most advanced monitor auto-calibration and networking software, plus significant across-the-board improvements including a digital input, higher SPL and increased low frequency extension.

Reitzas remarks, “I’ve been a longtime user of Genelec monitors, and there is a consistency of sound quality across the whole product line. I remember being blown away with 1031’s early in my career when I would go to different studios. I believe it was in 1994 that I then purchased a pair of the original 1032’s with a 1092 subwoofer, and those have been my go-to speakers for the past 23 years. I’m so used to them. When you love a speaker it’s because you get great results and they translate well, and your familiarity with that speaker helps you make all those important decisions when it comes to recording and mixing. So the new 1032C feels like home to me, and it’s made all the better with the addition of the Smart Active Monitoring system.”

Reitzas adds, “I used the Genelec 8351’s working on a recent Barbra Streisand album, and I also own 8320’s. Both of these units have the Smart Active Monitoring system too. For someone like me who goes around to different studios and different home studios, the Smart Active Monitoring system allows me to calibrate the speakers to whatever room I find myself in. To get to use the 1032C’s, it’s like a dream come true – to have something that’s so familiar to you, and now be able to calibrate it across different facilities, is the perfect update to a classic. I fell in love. In a way, it’s like adding navigation and cruise control and other modern features to a great custom car. It adds flexibility while keeping the vintage features intact.”

Genelec, the pioneer in Active Monitoring technology, is celebrating nearly 40 years of designing and manufacturing active loudspeakers for true and accurate sound reproduction. Genelec is credited with promoting the concept of active transducer technology. Since its inception in 1978, Genelec has concentrated its efforts and resources into creating active monitors with unparalleled sonic integrity. The result is an active speaker system that has earned global acclaim for its accurate imaging, extremely high acoustic output from small enclosures, true high-fidelity with low distortion, and deep, rich bass.

Genelec is also celebrating over 10 years of its Smart Active Monitoring™ technology, which allows studio monitors to be networked, configured and calibrated for the user’s specific acoustic environment. Each Smart Active Monitor or subwoofer is equipped with advanced internal DSP circuitry, which tightly integrates with the GLM (Genelec Loudspeaker Manager) software application, running on Mac or PC. GLM’s reference microphone kit allows the user’s acoustic environment to be analyzed, after which GLM’s AutoCal feature optimizes each Smart Active Monitor for level, distance delay, subwoofer crossover phase and room response equalization, with the option of further fine tuning by the user. By minimizing the room’s influence on the sound, Smart Active Monitors deliver an unrivalled reference, with excellent translation between rooms.
