8240A Bi-Amplified SAM Monitor System

Audio monitoring precision is lifted to an entirely new level of accuracy with Genelec 8240A Smart Active Monitor (SAM).

The 8240A features Genelec MDE and DCW technologies, a flow optimized reflex port, high SPL, low colouration and broad bandwidth in a modest enclosure. This SAM system features Genelec AutoCal™ and Genelec Loudspeaker Manager (GLM™) control network technologies which allow adjustments of all aspects of monitor settings and full system control. GLM allows to automatically align every monitor on the network in terms of level, timing, and equalisation of room response anomalies.

The 8240A is the most advanced monitoring tool for recording studios, post-production houses, digital edit suites, radio, TV and outside broadcasting.
