The Genelec 8240A Bi-Amped DSP Active Monitoring System. Compact, 24 Bit/192 kHz, Bi-amplified DSP monitor system, ideal for recording studios, post-production houses, broadcast installations, digital edit suites, home studios and mobile production vehicles. The Genelec 8240A bi-amplified DSP monitoring system lifts audio monitoring precision to an entirely new level of accuracy. Boasting performance comparable to much larger systems, the compact and powerful 8240A package is ideal in applications where a wide frequency response is needed but space is limited. The Genelec 8240A is the ideal monitoring tool for recording studios, post-production houses, broadcast installations, digital edit suites, home studios and mobile production vehicles. The 8240 A builds on the rock-solid technology of the highly-acclaimed 8040A, featuring an ingenious, flow optimized, reflex port that provides solid, clear and articulated low frequencies without compression, distortion or port noises. Combined with the advanced Genelec Directivity Control Waveguide (DCW) and the rounded edges and gently curved front and sides of the MDE (Minimum Diffraction Enclosure) enclosure, the result is an astoundingly flat frequency response both on and off axis. Other benefits include superb imaging precision and minimum listening fatigue. Carefully designed dsp crossover filters with extremely steep roll-off characteristics feed dedicated power amplifiers for each of the low distortion drivers. The Genelec 8240A features magnetic shielding, overload protection circuitry and versatile room response controls as standard. Genelec 8240A and 8250A DSP Loudspeakers are designed for precise monitoring of 24 bit/192 kHz AES/EBU digital audio signal or line level analog audio signal. They are fully compatible with Genelec Loudspeaker Manager GLM and the proprietary Genelec loudspeaker control network, and Genelec 7260A, 7270A and 7271A DSP Active Subwoofers, but can also be used independently of these. The Genelec Loudspeaker Manager (GLM) control network and software enhances further the performance of the 8240 A: it features adjustment of levels, distance delays and flexible room response improvement equalization with the reliable and robust AutoCal automated calibration system via the GLM control network. The 8240A has both analog and AES digital inputs in combination with a digital thru connection. Each Genelec 8240A is supplied with an Iso-Pod (Isolation Positioner/Decoupler) which eliminates coloration of the sound by decoupling the monitor from its mounting surface. The Iso-Pod also allows the monitor to be angled so that its acoustic axis points directly at the listener. For ideal mounting in differing environments, the 8240A includes integrated rear support points for floor and wall stands, with an additional M10 threaded mounting hole on the enclosure base. DSP products are available ONLY in black colour.
