8250A Bi-Amplified SAM Monitor System

The 8250A Smart Active Monitor (SAM) adds new levels of accuracy and intelligence to monitoring with its ability to be used with all other SAM systems.

The 8250A combines Genelec experience in the design of two-way systems together with its state of the art AutoCal™ and Genelec Loudspeaker Manager (GLM™) control network technologies. GLM allows to automatically align every monitor on the network in terms of level, timing, and equalisation of room response anomalies. The 8250A also features Genelec MDE and DCW technologies, a flow optimized reflex port and very high undistorted SPL over a wide bandwidth.

The 8250A is the monitoring solution for recording studios, post-production houses, digital mastering facilities, radio and TV broadcasting.
