udayan32's review"Gen 8260 for HIFI use"

Genelec 8260A
Coaxial mid /high driver(s),aluminium enclosure, DSP correction, very low distorsion levels, no need for a subwoofer.

I Use them for my pleasure only, they replace a quite expensive HIFI system.

SOUNDS

As for the stereo imaging they are excellent (depth and width) with very precise positionning of the instruments.

The sound is very clear from bottom to top. I can hear some mixing limitations or artifactc on some records that I ve never been aware of previously. (and take into account the fact that I am not a sound engineer but just a reasonably trained listener)

The counterpart of this precision being that when it is poorly recorded the sound is very bad.

OVERALL OPINION

Precision , Imaging, full range, compact, are the main qualities of the product.

Previously I listen to hifi products, Altec "VOT" with multicellular horn, and Studer A5/PSI A 25 M.

in my opinion, eventhough they are very expensive, it's a bargain

udayan32's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Genelec 8260 for Domestic use HIFI"

Genelec 8260A
Speaker midrange / treble coaxial cabinet aluminum anti resonant electronic correction of the frequency response, low distortion, no need for a subwoofer.

I bought them for my own use, to replace a high-end system HIFI

SOUNDS

The stereo image is excellent both in width and depth with a very precise positioning of instruments.

The sound is very clear from the very low to high, with very fair stamps. I discovered fireworks mix on hard I thought yet know well (Consider more that I'm not a sound engineer but a simple listener reasonably led)

Conversely, when the recording is bad speaker let you know unceremoniously!

OVERALL OPINION

It's been two months since I use.
Accuracy, real 3D stereo, the extent of the response curve to do without a subwoofer and the relative compactness are outstanding qualities of this picture pregnant. The ability to adapt to local from further refinement product excellence.

Relatively to the pleasure they provide when the recording is good, bad records are frustrating. This is not because they are doing less well than other speakers on the bad records, but because the gap with good records is much larger.

Previously I listened mainly products HIFI, but also "voice of the theater" tri active amplification and a5/PSI Studer A 25 M


These are expensive speakers in absolute terms, but if you compare their prices to what it would cost in HIFI elements to approach without reaching their reproduction quality, they are almost Data!
