Genelec's new 8260A 3-way active DSP monitor will debut in the UK at next month's Broadcast Video Expo (BVE) at Earl's Court.

The Genelec 8260A is the latest addition to the TEC 8200 Series, and sits alongside the existing 8240A and 8250A models, but a corresponding larger enclosure size ensures that the 8260A offers an even wider frequency response of 29Hz to 21kHz, the company promises, with a maximum SPL of 120dB, and the 8260A features the Genelec MDC Minimum Diffraction Coaxial Mid/High driver technology, designed to “take a big step in perfecting audio quality in professional active studio monitors.”

Like all models in the 8200 Series, the 8260A features internal Genelec DSP signal processing responsible for all loudspeaker functions, such as the crossover filters, driver equalisers, driver position alignment, room response alignment, calibration, and equalisation related filters as well as distance compensating delays. The Genelec Loudspeaker Manager (GLM) software manages all these functions, allowing the 8260A to be used together with other 8200 Series DSP monitors and 7200 Series subwoofers in the same setup.

The 8260A is designed to accept standard line level analogue inputs as well as all AES/EBU digital formats, and is equipped with three driver units, all powered via internal matching power amplifiers. The 10" LF unit is complemented by a 5" MF unit and a 3/4" HF unit, with the MF/HF units combined in the new MDC™ coaxial driver, which is designed to ensure that the drivers are coupled coherently over their full operating bandwidth, as well as creating coincident mid-frequency/high-frequency point source.
