Genelec has expanded its range of Smart Active Monitors with the new 8340 and 8350. They feature floating point DSP engines, linearised phase response and refined auto-calibration with spectral tuning capability, allowing better room integration and ease of use in a range of environments.

Offering 'the highest possible system flexibility for demanding monotirong needs', these Genelec monitors feature Class D amplifiers combined with latest technology drivers, allowing the 8340 and 8350 to achieve substantially higher sound pressure level than their predecessors with high dynamic range, improved frequency response flatness and very low distortion.

The 8340 features a 6.5" woofer, and the 8350 houses an 8" woofer. With 5x more room compensation capabilities than their earlier products, these two new monitors can use the acoustics of your room and easily compensate for any problems.

The GLM 2.0 software also allows all SAM system owners to benefit from the continued evolution of Genelec’s SAM technology via an easy to use Mac and Windows user interface. Furthermore, the new SAM systems are fully backward compatible, allowing any monitoring system to be easily expanded.
