FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Genelec Displays M Series Active Monitors


The NAMM Show, Anaheim, CA, January 19, 2017 Genelec (booth 5876), the world’s pioneer in active monitoring, is showing its M Series Bi-amplified Active Monitors. The energy-efficient M Series takes a novel approach to monitor design as part of Genelec’s larger ongoing sustainable initiatives. The primary focus in developing the new M Series was to proceed with a sustainable mindset without sacrificing the accuracy and reliability for which Genelec has been known for the past 35-plus years – while also offering something new and innovative for project studio customers.

The M030 and the M040 Bi-amplified Active Monitors employ a Natural Composite Enclosure™ (NCE™) manufactured for Genelec in Finland from wood fiber and recyclable material. The M030 and M040 use Genelec enclosure design heritage, featuring rounded edges and gently curved front and sides, to provide minimized cabinet edge diffraction and superb imaging. Both models also utilize a Laminar Integrated Port™ (LIP™) for accurate low frequency response and minimizing the enclosure vibration and each employ an integrated advanced Directivity Control Waveguide™ (DCW™), yielding large internal volumes with outstanding mechanical strength.

The M Series models feature class D amplifiers developed in-house by Genelec’s R&D/engineering team. The class D amplifiers are highly efficient, low-distortion amplifiers that operate cooler and lighter than class A/B amps. They also feature Intelligent Signal Sensing™ (ISS™) power management with auto power-off/auto power-on and with the standby power consumption of less than 0.5W. Automatic voltage selection allows the monitors to operate throughout the world. Additionally, the M Series has high-performance drivers, intuitive room response controls and system calibration with XLR/TRS and unbalanced RCA inputs.

The M030 utilizes a five-inch woofer and 0.75-inch metal dome tweeter, powered by a 50-Watt and 30-Watt amplifier, respectively. The free-field frequency response is 58Hz to 20kHz (+/-3dB), while low distortion peak SPL is 103dB at one meter. The M030 measures 10 3/4" H (273mm) x 7 1/2" W (190mm) x 7 1/2" D (190mm) and weighs 8.8 lbs (4.6kg).  The M040 employs a 6.5-inch woofer with a one-inch metal dome tweeter, powered by an 80-Watt and 50-Watt amplifier respectively. The free-field frequency response is 48Hz-20kHz (+/-3dB), while low distortion peak SPL is 107dB at one meter. The M040 measures 13 1/4" H (337mm) x 9 1/4" W (235mm) x 9" D (229mm) and weighs 15.4 lbs (7.4kg).

The Genelec M030 and the M040 Bi-amplified Active Monitors are now available with U.S. MSRP pricing as follows:
M030 $595.00 (each)
M040 $895.00 (each)

Genelec, the pioneer in Active Monitoring technology, is celebrating over 35 years of designing and manufacturing active loudspeakers for true and accurate sound reproduction. Genelec is credited with promoting the concept of active transducer technology, which many manufacturers are just now incorporating into their products. 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. In 2016, Genelec marks the 10th anniversary of its Smart Active Monitoring™ (SAM™) concept. Genelec SAM products provide active audio monitoring systems that also have the capability and intelligence enabling them to adapt automatically and flexibly to their acoustical environments through a set of proprietary tools.
