The distinctive RAW finish is available on a selection of the most popular models in Genelec’s Studio, AV, and Home Audio ranges for its combination of sustainability and ‘industrial’ design aesthetic. 

The RAW versions require no painting and less finishing material than standard painted models – creating a more environmentally friendly loudspeaker that allows the natural beauty of the enclosure’s recycled aluminium to shine through, and gives each individual loudspeaker a unique look and feel.

The 8331 and 8341 models were launched in 2017 part of The Ones series, and now feature the same Minimum Diffraction Enclosure (MDE) design that all the RAW models are afforded to eliminate edge diffractions.

Lauded for their “extraordinary imaging, accurately controlled directivity in both planes, ultra-nearfield excellence, extended frequency response, and fatigue-free listening,” they now.

As part of Genelec’s Smart Active Monitoring family, all models in The Ones range integrate tightly with GLM software, which can calibrate and control entire Genelec smart monitoring systems.

Based on data from thousands of studios around the world, GLM is able to minimise the room’s detrimental influence on the sound, enabling the user to produce mixes that translate perfectly to other systems, whether the format is stereo, surround or high channel count immersive.

A portion of each sale of these new models being donated to the Audio Engineering Society (AES) throughout the whole of 2022.

“The RAW series is part of our ongoing commitment to sustainability, which we consider to be of equal importance as profitability and sound quality,” explains Genelec Managing Director Siamäk Naghian. 

“As our flagship studio monitor range, we’ve had many requests to make The Ones models available in the RAW series, so we’re very happy that we’ve now perfected a way of producing the 8331 and 8341 to the same high standards as the other RAW models. 

“We’re also delighted that the success of RAW will be helping to contribute to the outstanding work that the AES does for our industry.”
