Genelec is now shipping the 8010 compact active monitor, the smallest member of the 8000 product range that is widely used in professional audio, mastering, post-production and broadcast market sectors around the world.
Suitable for professional work in small studios, the new 8010 offers accurate monitoring capability with ease of installation. It’s sound quality makes it a choice for small editorial studios and OB vans, as well as a companion for portable recording devices and other mobile production work.
Outfitted with a balanced XLR input, 3-inch bass driver, 3/4-inch tweeter and Class D power amplifiers – one for each driver – the 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.
A range of accessories is available for the 8010 to cover all 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 compact active monitor is now available at a U.S. MSRP of $440 each.
