Genelec 8040A

The architecture of these specially aesthetic not pregnant at first turns very effective use.
The patent system Bass reflex time by Genelec provides precision and sensitivity in the extraordinary gravity to the size of these speakers.
The tweeter waveguide and the rounded shapes of the enclosure (all calculation micronmetre!) Prcisent the stereo image and the return of treble.
Amplification is worthy of Genelec, A reference in the MATIRE, it's clean and dynamic.


WaaOuuuh !!!

Compar other speakers in this format (Boomer 6 ''), this is probably the only offer such RESPONSE in frquence, linear 45 20000 Hz.
With a lightweight coloration in the medium that tends to strengthen the presence (on vocals in particular); gave a small cot "believe."
So take the mix of relief, excellent transient rstitution and precision of the waveguide are I think for many. At higher volumes, the most comparable o pregnant begin to saturate and compress the 8040 continue to meet the transient and the depth of the mix.
But it is perhaps in the low that these gems are the most surprising. After a few simple rglages that are needed depending on the local and listening to the speaker position, is easily obtained a remarkable compromise between performance and precision in the low, even in a pi First inadapt this view.


YiiiiiiHaaa !!!!!

After a month of use, I'm not ready for me ... except against Sparer of 8050! when I have a few meters and ppettes surface carrs more!
That's what I've heard in this range of speakers that offer more realism to the mix, both stereo image plane as the return of frequencies, they compete m me without complex with larger and more powerful speakers such as precision tannoy 8 for example with which I could compare. This is especially the "boilerplate" very easy transport (compact / grilles), place thanks Iso-Pod and rgler.
Finally for the price (in 1200 the pair looking good) it is a pure matter if you CONSIDERED manufacturing quality, the irreproachable finish but also the amount of inovations brought by these monitors.
I think they are even ahead of the competition but it's just my opinion!

(I accuracy of all I pay the tax in 1212 pregnant in late 2006 ...)

The trapper DJ/Producer's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Monstreuse Orient electronic music"

Genelec 8040A
There have any thing to know before buying ....
Already how to choose monitor actually from what I've heard pros in my field Genelec is clearly perfect for the production of electronic music (although many producers do not make electronic music but use it I was talking to know what to expect) namely in Hardcore / Gabber almost all the biggest names in the scene occur under Genelec because it's actually perfect for pregnant aggressive style of music
so I just turned on a sound card Roland Duo-Capture EX 24Bit 192KHZ but I turn 48.000HZ 24Bit (48.000HZ) standard if I'm not mistaken ...
especially the use of mix-down sometimes but mastering complicated for me so I can not judge mastering

I put 9/10 because his trusty map folds are


The curve is very different from a conventional speaker after speaker at many test store I noticed that one had a hollow in the spectrum and especially a very narrow definition of his sound as if locked myself in enclosure and even Genelec had a perfect definition (an enclosure is not limited to frequency curve) but for me the curve can put a Bass frequency before and medium around 200-300HZ
it does not stop to hear my High-Cut placing 15,000-20.000Hz

While the stereo image with separate 2m20 difference frankly I feel in the panorama I hear perfectly (as if I'm in) I know hear directly if the sound is centered or not, and if it is large or not
is exceptional speakers on the stereo!
also found that the reverb time set up on Genelec ;)

ps: there have integrated the filter chamber so think carefully to their operations and to whom should be put forward based on your style of music! otherwise you can not be going to love this frequency


I have 8-9 months since I lapped careful because it is very expensive for 4 weeks then I did not go beyond the fourth quarter of the volume knob on my sound card

I have actually seen their usefulness on the mixing frequency and in its surrounding panorama attention too are here to help us make a clean and proper mixing with consequent stereo

Another specialty its really sound dispersion I feel it is just designed for home studio with no soundproofing & acoustic panel, sound comes out of the speaker not reflected on the wall. even strictly speaking it is an impression
but has its uses: P (imagine with a real studio: P)

they are not especially suited to music listening even though I must admit that the sound Genelec spring on any facility that will be the stereo of my brother. or my amp with speaker Marrantz Kiev! Briefly, Genelec is happening everywhere but I especially recommend for electronic music: Dubstep, Drum & Bass, House, Electro, Progressive, Hardcore, Hardstyle & Co. .. ps: epic music not go wrong I find it: P

short, I tried KRK, Adams, Yamaha, I've even heard that corresponded focal not my style of music ... Genelec and frankly at the top in terms of electronic music!

Value / price expensive at first sight! but many things justifies their price is not low-end is also pregnant I really recommend it if you plan to do serious work with this one you will have a clean job well clear space and lower denaturation sound you hear ;) that you need it more??
I advise pregnant Genelec brand that is minimum from the 8030 model because it is really limited!
Top, perfect! at least for me and my music Hardcore / gabber
