Genelec personnel with the company's NAMM TEC Award for Outstanding Technical Achievement in the “Studio Monitor Technology” category.
Genelec’s 8331 and 8341 Compact Coaxial Monitors (known as “The Ones” along with the larger 8351) have received a NAMM Technical Excellence & Creativity (TEC) Award for Outstanding Technical Achievement in the “Studio Monitor Technology” category.
Presented by the NAMM Foundation, the awards celebrate the best in professional audio and sound production. The 33rd Annual TEC Awards were presented Saturday, January 27, 2018, at The NAMM Show in Anaheim, California.
“We thank all the voters who selected The Ones as leaders in monitoring technology,” said Will Eggleston, Genelec’s marketing director. “It is indeed an honor and a privilege to be recognized by our peers for Genelec Oy’s hard work, dedication and innovation in Finland, making the 8331 and 8341 a reality.”
Genelec The Ones
Founded in 1985, the Technical Excellence & Creativity Awards is the foremost program recognizing the achievements of audio professionals. Presented annually by the TEC Foundation for Excellence in Audio, the TEC Awards recognizes the individuals, companies and technical innovations behind the sound of recordings, live performances, films, television, video games and other media.
Genelec’s 8341 and 8331 coaxial monitors recently joined the 8351 to create a complete compact coaxial range (“The Ones”) that redefines near-field monitoring. They feature Smart Active Monitoring, the technology based on Genelec Loudspeaker Manager (GLM) 3.0 software for PC and Mac, incorporating AutoCal.
