Genelec 1031APublished on 03/12/09 at 19:34
The Genelec 1031A are a larger set of active studio monitors made for using in the recording studio. Since the monitors are active, they are self powered and do not need an external power amp. These monitors are pretty giant, so they are not the type of monitors you can move around from place to place, so once you set them it would be hard to move and are made for stationary studio use. I have used these monitors for both mixing and monitoring during tracking.

The sound of the 1031As is absolutely huge! They cover the entire frequency spectrum with its great low end presence and its tight high end response. While it won't color your sound at all, I do find that sometimes these...…

SOUNDS

The sound of the 1031As is absolutely huge! They cover the entire frequency spectrum with its great low end presence and its tight high end response. While it won't color your sound at all, I do find that sometimes these sound too good for mixing as they just never sound as good as they did on these! That's more of a perception thing, and these monitors definitely accurately portray your sound. Overall, the sound is full and clear and are really some of the best mid range speakers I have heard.

OVERALL OPINION

I've been using Genelec 1031A studio monitors for about three years and they are one of the best set of studio monitors I have heard. They have a huge full sound to them that is hard to rival with any set of speakers that is smaller than these as the huge size of these allows them to cover the full range of frequencies. I have used a couple other pairs of Genelec studio monitors, but these are definitely the best set I have used. These things can really crank loud and are great at showing you all the subtle things within your signal. While I like to use these for mixing, I always have a second set of monitors to A/B with to get a better sense of what the mix will sound like on other speakers. The price of these is incredibly expensive and is aimed at the truly professional studio, but if you have access to them they are an experience to use!

Even if I knew them to be heard on numerous occasions in a lot of studios and since the mid-90s, their purchase was made by chance as the base I had gone to buy me a pair 1030 (below the waist) but I got a good price from the dealer for the 1031!
I use it in my project studio for 10 years now. I had the opportunity to test in 2 different locations who moved my studio. Originally my cabin was quite large and in 1031 were at their ease, since my move, my cabin is much smaller, and I would say they are not necessarily well suited to this new piece. Actually somewhat exaggerated.
The amplification is incredibly effective! You leave the room before he could put them at the bottom!

I sometimes use a sub Focal listening in "comfort", but never in the sub mix, only in 1031 and possibly a small pair of Tannoy alternative for listening.

SOUNDS

As always the sound of a speaker is subjective and dependent on the acoustic quality of the room in which they are used, but the 1031 can undoubtedly be considered a reliable tool for monitoring. But be careful, these speakers should be positioned with great care, otherwise the result can be catastrophic - I know what I'm talking about because I have paid the price by excess precipitation during installation, I had to correct the thereafter with shooting method. The frequency response can be changed using mini switches, and of course it is also absolutely necessary to make the right settings depending on where they are used.
Their analytical quality is undeniable, the dynamics of what is recorded is rendered perfectly and the stereo image is impeccable, although generally the best will be made in a piece of medium to large size, they have "the air "around so that they can fully express themselves.
I could just blame them that they generate some listening fatigue which in my opinion is due to a certain hardness in the upper midrange and treble.

OVERALL OPINION

10 years of loyal service ... They are well sold at one time, yet they are difficult to find on the second hand market, which says a lot about their qualities. Many studios are still fitted today. It's sturdy, very well made, very strong and reliable.
However, they are not for everyone! I do not recommend it for use purely home-studio, you may be disappointed (the 1030 are definitely more appropriate in this case). However, if your studio is quite large, they can breathe and speak, and there is only happiness. Go for it.

Quality / price ratio? Excellent in my case because I got them at a good price ... Genelec but it is not given in a general way, even if it was worth the money ...

I purchased these speakers to mix in the studio pro. Mostly acoustic usic lam. Added reputation of course, and the fact that these speakers are tousle studios around the world.

SOUNDS

I see only one thing to say about these speakers: they are "fair". I find all the stereo systems or radio (when I have mixed it goes, though! If! This arive) exactly what I put in my mix. Better yet, if something bothers me a little about the 1031, Hi-fi then it bother me much. The fiablité is real, and amazing when you see the dimensions that are not huge.

OVERALL OPINION

I use the 1031 for almost 10 years. As tester in a magazine, I sovent the opportunity to compare with other brands, other models. So far, there are only QUESTED which I thought was comparable. Other brands in the same range (Dynaudio, Mackie, Far) seemed to me less.

Initially, I was seduced by his pregnant color.
Those are high powered speaker manufacturing.

SOUNDS

At first I found the speakers excellent, and a very enjoyable listen.
The pan is quite distinct.
The sound accurate and well detailed but I would say that after several results and see what I get to listen to stereo external Génélec 1031 that are far too comfortable for mixing.

Comfort in the studio does not mean excellent mix of the finished product.
The price is also very high compared to their effectiveness.
