Genelec’s SAM Compact Studio Monitors Will Adapt To Any Environment


As studio space becomes limited and listening areas more con­fined, recordings are starting to take place in a wide variety of locations, many with minimal acoustic treatment. The smart monitors and smart subwoofers of the Compact Series are designed to adapt and assist. Controlled by the Genelec Loudspeaker Manager (GLM) 2.0 software, SAM Compact systems use ground breaking AutoCal to create an optimised and controlled monitoring environment. After automatic calibration, monitoring set-ups ranging from simple stereo to immersive audio will perform with the consistency upon which you rely, compensating for deficiencies in the listening environment.


Compact to ­fit into the tightest of spaces yet Smart enough to optimise your recording environment, the 8320A is your entry point to the world of SAM. Small but mighty, the two-way, Class-D bi-amplified 8320A blends a deceptively powerful 4-inch woofer with Genelec’s renowned acoustic design expertise and world-leading Smart Active Monitoring technology. Ideal for facilities that need power and adaptability in a compact package, the 8330A offers colour-free reproduction and the world’s most advanced Smart monitoring solution. Housing a 5 inch woofer and 3/4 inch tweeter, the Class D bi-ampli­fied, two-way Smart monitor is compact enough to ­fit into studios where space is at a premium, yet still capable of exceeding even the most demanding client expectations.
