Genelec 8010 Overview

Styled in what the manufacturer has dubbed Producer Finish, the Genelec 8010A Bi-Amplified Active Monitor (Single) is designed for mixing and mastering in recording studios, broadcast facilities, and mobile work. The compact monitor utilizes independent 25W Class-D amplifiers to power a 3" woofer and a 3/4" metal dome tweeter housed in a die-cast aluminum enclosure. The monitor utilizes Genelec's Directivity Control Waveguide and Minimum Diffraction Enclosure designs to tame box reflections, flatten the frequency response from 74 Hz to 20 kHz, and provide a maximum SPL of 96 dB.

The amplifiers utilize Genelec's Intelligent Signal Sensing circuitry to conserve electricity, utilizing less than 0.5W in standby mode, 5W when idle, and 30W peak per amplifier at full output. The amplifier automatically detects the presence of an input signal and adjusts the power consumption of the monitor accordingly. A bass tilt control allows you to adjust the bass response to fit the acoustics of your listening environment. The included ISO stand helps reduce the transmission of structural vibrations into your work surface.

What cable do I need to connect it to my laptop? It has USB A &amp; C ports.
Asked by: JANG WOOK
You'll need to hook them up with xlr cables to an external soundcard, like a recording interface, that can send a balanced analog signal. The inputs of of the 8010s accept analog XLR connections. An interface or mixer that has XLR or 1/4&quot; TRS outputs will connect to these with ease

Both monitors are the same model. The only difference between the two is the color. B&amp;H #GE8010AP is the producer finish and B&amp;H # GE8010AW is the same monitor in white finish.

question

Thanks for your input. I need to keep shopping, since two of these are out of my price range. Can someone recommend a comparable set for less than $300/set?
Asked by: Kim W.
A great alternative in similar size and price range would be the Senal ASM-3 which ship as a pair. Another quality option in your price range, the Tannoy Reveal 402. These ship as individual units and will fit your budget.

Current model on Genelec site is 8010A - what is the difference between this 8010 and 8010A?
Asked by: Eric
But Genelec has 8020D, 8030C, 8040B which are also active - so that is not consistent with &quot;A&quot; = Active?

question

Do I need two of these when correcting sound recorded in stereo mode? It's voice only from a lapel mic or from the camcorder.
Asked by: Kim W.
Hi Kim,You will probably want to work with two speaker because that is what your listeners will be working with. Even if the audio you are working with is mono (one channel), having two speakers enables you to ensure that the sound will play back in both speakers.

why is the volume control 1/8in? this seems incredibly strange, given that the speakers and subwoofer both require XLR inputs, and are likely being fed either from the XLR output of a mixer, or the RCA output of a DAC. The speakers specifically state that they shouldn't be fed using an amplified signal, so that would rule out sources like an ipad, iphone, or computer.
Asked by: Andrew
The product is meant for convenience when monitoring straight out of a computer minijack. The volume control input and output have 3.5 mm stereo male and female connectors providing immediate connectivity with most computers and laptops, MP3 players and game stations. A converter cable converting 2 x RCA to 3.5 mm stereo (female) is needed for audio equipment with RCA outputs. A converter cable converting 3.5 mm stereo (male) to 2 x XLR (male) is needed to use 9000A Stereo Volume Control with Genelec monitor loudspeakers having XLR input. These cables can be obtained from your authorized Genelec dealer. The connecting cable on 9000A is Y-shaped. After 1 meter (3 ft 3&quot;) from the control knob the single cable splits into two 1 meter (3 ft 3&quot;) cables, one for audio input, one for audio output. Technical Specifications &bull; Weight: 0,325 kg (0,72 lbs) &bull; Height: 42 mm (1 5/8&quot;) &bull; Diameter: 60 mm (2 1/8&quot;)
