Genelec Has Strong Presence At The 2014 NAMM Show

— With a product debut and awards for new and classic Genelec offerings, the NAMM Show was the backdrop for an impressive showing from Genelec —

NATICK, MA, January 29, 2014 — Genelec is proud to wrap a successful several days in Anaheim at the 2014 NAMM Show. Since recently marking the completion of its 35th anniversary year celebration in 2013, Genelec has been on a roll, and this convention served as the backdrop for a new product unveiling (the 8010 Active Monitor) and multiple prestigious awards for the loudspeaker pioneer.

Debuted at the show, the 8010 Active Monitor is the smallest member of the acclaimed 8000 Series product range. The 8000 Series is widely used in the high-end professional audio, mastering, post-production and broadcast market sectors around 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 the 8010 ideal for small studios and OB vans, and a perfect companion for portable recording devices and other mobile production work.

Genelec products were also the recipients of two different awards from the NAMM Foundation at the NAMM Show:

First, Genelec’s new M Series Active Monitors won the 29th Annual TEC Award for Outstanding Technical Achievement in the category “Studio Monitor Technology.” The award was presented on January 24, 2014, at a special ceremony. The energy-efficient M Series (thus far comprising the first two models, M030 and M040) takes a new approach to monitor design as part of Genelec’s larger ongoing sustainable initiatives known as Genelec Embedded Sustainability. The primary focus in developing the new M Series was to proceed with a sustainable mindset without sacrificing the accuracy and reliability for which Genelec has been known for the past 35 years – while also offering something new and innovative for project studio customers.

Second, Genelec’s classic 1031A Active Studio Monitor, introduced in 1991, was inducted into the TECnology Hall of Fame at a separate ceremony on January 25, 2014. Outlining the 1031A’s outstanding achievement, the Hall of Fame’s description of the monitor is as follows: “The 1031A was not Genelec's first monitor (that was 1978's S-30) or active system that employed the innovative Directivity Control Waveguide (DCW) — a nod that goes to 1984’s 1022A mid-field tri-amp and later 1989's large-format 1035A system. However in 1991, when Genelec debuted the 1031A — a compact, yet high-performance monitor that applied the DCW approach into a self-powered near-field design, a classic was born. At just over 15 inches tall, the 1031A offered flat response (out to 23k Hz), 240 watts of onboard biamplification and the ability to reach 120 dB peaks. All of these made the 1031A a popular choice with top engineers and producers, studios and broadcasters worldwide and it stayed in production for 15 years, eventually being replaced by Genelec's 8000 series Minimum Diffraction Enclosure (MDE) technology monitors.”

“This has been a banner year for Genelec,” stated Will Eggleston, Genelec Inc. Marketing Manager. “I can think of no better way to wrap our 35th anniversary celebration than to have such an eventful NAMM Show. We are immensely proud of our new 8010 Active Monitor and M Series products, and it was a true honor to be acknowledged by the NAMM Foundation in two separate award ceremonies. We are dedicated to our technology on an intense level, and it is satisfying to see the fruits of our hard work.”
