Genelec Wins 13th TEC Award For Bi-Amplified Monitors

At the recent 30th annual NAMM show in Anaheim, California, Genelec was awarded a TEC Award for its Genelec 8010A Bi-Amplified Monitor System. This is Genelec’s 13th TEC Award.

The extremely compact Genelec 8010A gives professionals working in small studios and on the move a highly accurate audio monitoring solution. It features exceptional sound quality, small form factor and universal mains input voltage. With a balanced XLR input, 3-inch woofer, 3/4-inch tweeter and two efficient Class D power amplifiers, the company said the 8010A produces a wide undistorted sound pressure level. It also features Genelec Intelligent Signal Sensing (ISS) circuitry, which switches the monitor to “Standby” when no audio input is detected.

Although this small studio monitor features a 3-inch woofer and a ¾-inch tweeter, it delivers a frequency response from approximately from 74Hz to 20kHz. Another feature users like is its steady low-end balance, which is not often found in a nearfield monitor. A pair of 8010s and a laptop are ideal for mobile production, and you can comfortably combine five 8010s with a 7050B subwoofer for an effective and affordable 5.1 surround system.

It also incorporates Genelec's acoustic design innovations to minimize all forms of distortion. The 8010 has a die-cast aluminum Minimum Diffraction Enclosure (MDE), which features relatively large internal volumes, softly curved edges, and rugged mechanical strength. As a result, the 8010's imaging accuracy and low frequency extension, despite its compact enclosure, are truly astounding.

Several mounting accessories are available for the installation of the 8010A, making them ideal for music studios, mobile vans and portable recording devices.

The 30th Annual NAMM Technical Excellence & Creativity Awards show was held Saturday, January 24, in Anaheim.
