Genelec has been dedicated to designing and manufacturing active studio monitor speakers since its founding in 1978. Their reference monitors meet all the professional requirements for studio monitor speakers. Genelec has been the industry first to develop many of the key technologies in use today: the Directivity Control Waveguide, the full implementation of the active loudspeaker with built-in power amplifiers, driver protection circuitry and the integration of full room response tailoring as well as the Laminar Spiral Enclosure, the Minimum Diffraction Enclosure and the Minimum Diffraction Coaxial technologies and many more.
Their wide range of active analog and digital studio monitors cover all professional applications from traditional stereo to modern digital surround sound reproduction with latest digital audio formats. All Genelec monitors, regardless of size, share the same neutral sound characteristics. Genelec studio monitors are made for demanding professional use. They reveal the original nuances of the sound, without leaving anything out from or adding anything to the signal in any stage of the production. This performance is based on more than three decades of intensive R&D work and study of the practical problems in studio monitoring. Strict quality control in manufacturing of Genelec active monitors is an essential part in guaranteeing a long lasting performance. Every Genelec studio monitor speaker is built at the Genelec factory in Iisalmi, Finland.
