...any speaker used is referred to as 'monitor' regardless of size from 5" nearfields to mains using four 15" woofers per channel.
Genelec is a late comer to the domestic market if they have anything aimed at the consumer while B&W and Focal only came to the pro market very, very late ie this century.
Genelec is selling to the consumer market now? I had no idea. I was using what has to be one of my favorite powered monitors by Genelec in 1987. I forget the model number but I've been meaning to look around for a pair of those old mini-monitors. Solid as an ingot and boy could they crank!
I still kick myself for not going all Genelec in my home theater. They are the perfect match for my B&K Reference 50 preamp. No amps needed and all balanced connections!
Hmmmmmm. A plan is forming.
Yes Genelec does!
Mostly they seem to be the same as their small 2way monitors only in white.
Genelec does a rather interesting larger 3way with a clever co-axial mid/high unit and a 10" woofer called 8260A SAM. -6dB points are 23Hz and 40kHz but from 29Hz to 21kHz Genelec claims +-1dB variation!!!
A pair of those with 3 of the smaller co-axial 8351 for center and surround duties would make an awesome home system for stereo and movies that would be very hard to improve upon at any price.
