WINTER NAMM SHOW, ANAHEIM, CA, January 19, 2012 — Genelec (booth 6220/Hall A), the world’s longstanding leader in active monitoring, is displaying its 8030A Bi-Amplified Monitoring System. The compact 8030A is a powerful bi-amplified nearfield monitor system ideal for project and home studios, workstations, installations, and surround sound monitoring. The MDE™ (Minimum Diffraction Enclosure™) enclosure has rounded edges and a gently curved front and sides to achieve a very smooth frequency response and superb imaging qualities with minimized cabinet edge diffraction.
Like all Genelec 8000 Series monitors, the 8030A also features the advanced Genelec Directivity Control Waveguide™ (DCW™), a revolutionary flow-optimized reflex port design, optimized die-cast aluminum structure with extremely durable semi-matte finish and acoustically optimized metal grilles. Low distortion drivers are driven by dedicated amplifiers after sophisticated filtering. Magnetic shielding, overload protection circuitry and versatile room response controls are standard. The versatile mounting features include integrated rear support points for wall and floor stands plus a further 3/8" thread for mounting on the cabinet base.
Every Genelec 8030A monitor comes with an Iso-Pod™(Isolation Positioner/Decoupler™) as standard. The Iso-Pod is a clever mounting stand, which allows the system to perform in either the vertical or horizontal position. It also enables the acoustic axis of the monitor to be aimed at the listener, while acoustically and mechanically decoupling the monitor from the surface it is resting on.
If very large sound levels and a lower cutoff frequency are required it can be complemented in stereo applications with the 7050B subwoofer (8030.LSE Triple Play) and in surround applications with the 7060B subwoofer (8030.LSE Power Pak).
Genelec’s 8030A Bi-Amplified Active Monitor is currently available with a U.S. MSRP of $895.00.
