Genelec has announced the new 8010 active studio monitor, the smallest member of the 8000 Series product range. It will be on display at the upcoming NAMM show in Anaheim at booth 6740.
The compact 8010 is suitable for professional work in small studios, offering accurate monitoring capability with ease of installation, and is also a companion for portable recording devices and other mobile production work.
The 8010 incorporates a balanced XLR input, 3-inch bass driver, 3/4-inch tweeter and efficient Class D power amplifiers, one for each driver. T
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.
A range of versatile accessories is available for the 8010 to cover mounting needs. For example, an L-shaped table stand can be used to optimize monitor orientation toward the listening position and to minimize undesired sound reflections.
The 8010 will be available early 2014 at a U.S. MSRP of $440 each.
