Genelec, the studio monitor company, held a listening showcase of its new “The Ones” series of Compact Coaxial Active Monitors on July 11 in Nashville.
Genelec said the event was held at Addiction Sound Studios in the city’s Berry Hill neighborhood (506 East Iris Drive) in Nashville and was open to the public.
“The Ones” series includes Genelec’s 8351 three-way Smart Active Monitor, along with the newly released 8341 and 8331, the industry’s smallest three-way coaxial monitors. These three models, joined by Genelec’s 1238A Smart Active Monitor, will be set up to audition in a controlled listening environment.
Attendees were encouraged to bring their own reference CDs or line-in program material for listening.
