Genelec has introduced Ultimate Point Source monitoring with The Ones, two new speakers that will join the 8351 to create the world’s smallest three-way coaxial monitor family…
The two new speakers, the 8331 and 8341, both share the same design and coaxial driver as the 8351 but come in a much smaller package, wiping away the previous constraints of coaxial point source set-ups.
Genelec claims that The Ones will deliver precise imaging both on- and off-axis, neutral reproduction, meaning users can make mix decisions with confidence while also listening for longer. Coupled with Genelec’s Directivity Control Waveguide (DCWTM) and The Ones concealed dual woofer design, it also promises less coloured reflections.
- Point source, accurate imaging
- Compact three-way (most compact on the market)
- Best of the market woofer directivity – less reflections from nearby surfaces
- Horizontal and vertical orientations
- No off-axis coloration
- Low intermodulation distortion (three-way, steep crossover)
- Constant delay
- Low diffraction
- Enables ultra near field monitoring
- Genelec SAM® monitor, full GLM™ support
- Leading industrial design
- Built for long life-time
“The number of big ideas contained within these small monitors is truly remarkable, but no list of features can ever match up to the experience of simply listening to them,” commented Genelec Managing Director, Siamäk Naghian. “For professionals worldwide, the 8351 has already become the trusted standard for its neutrality, and its smooth frequency response both on- and off-axis. Now that same precision and three-way performance is available to everyone. With the 8331 and 8341, the size of your studio is no longer a barrier to the size of your ambition.”
