Get Enhanced Power And Enhanced Precision In One Package With The Genelec 8340A SAM Studio Monitor

Available for special order in white finish - contact us for details.

Lift the accuracy of your audio monitoring to a new level with the 8340A’s enhanced power, pin-point accuracy and advanced Smart Active Monitoring.

The Genelec 8340A has quickly established itself as the trusted monitoring choice of facilities worldwide. Boasting a 6 1/2 inch woofer plus Genelec’s most efficient Class-D amplification to date, the two-way, Class D bi-amplified monitor represents a finely balanced union of acoustic expertise and SAM innovation.

At the heart of the system is an acoustic design shaped by decades of innovation and expertise. Capable of supporting extremely high sound pressure levels, the 8340A features a reflex port design for low-frequency enhancement, plus the colour-free accuracy of the Minimum Diffraction Enclosure (MDE), and on- and off-axis precision thanks to the Directivity Control Waveguide (DCW). All this is coupled to the versatility of SAM. Genelec Loudspeaker Manager (GLM) software allows for the fine adjustment of all monitor settings, while AutoCal compensates for detrimental room influences to perfectly calibrate your set-up for your listening environment, no matter if you work in simple stereo or ambitious immersive audio.

The result is the most advanced adaptable monitoring solution available, ideal for all applications including recording studios, post-production houses, digital edit suites, radio, TV and outside broadcasting.
