The new Genelec 8010 is the smallest member of Genelec 8000 product range. The 8000 Series is widely used in broadcast, music and post-production studios across the world. Its professional heritage is reflected in the compact-sized 8010. Suitable for professional work in small studios it offers accurate monitoring capability with ease of installation. The outstanding sound quality makes 8010 ideal for small studios, OB vans, and a perfect companion for portable recording devices and other mobile production work.
With a balanced XLR input, 3-inch woofer, 3/4-inch tweeter and efficient Class D power amplifiers – one for each driver – 8010s produce more undistorted sound pressure level than you might expect from monitors of this size. Genelec’s Intelligent Signal Sensing, the ISS circuitry saves energy by automatically setting the monitor to sleep mode when an audio signal has been absent for a while. Once a signal is detected again, the monitor wakes up automatically. The ISS circuitry can be bypassed when needed.
A full range of versatile accessories is available for 8010, which cover all mounting needs. For example, an elegant L-shaped table stand can be used to optimise monitor orientation toward the listening position and to minimize undesired sound reflections. Thanks to its exceptional sound quality, small size and universal mains input voltage, 8010 is the perfect monitor companion for music production on the move.
The 8010 has been given a UK RRP of £249.
