— Genelec’s 8260A features major advance in audio driver technology, integrated to a
sophisticated enclosure design —
NAB CONVENTION, LAS VEGAS, NV, April 16, 2012 — Genelec (booth C1332), the world’s longstanding pioneer in active monitoring, is exhibiting its 8260A Tri-Amplified DSP Monitoring System. The 8260A breaks new ground in electro-acoustic design, as mechanical, acoustical and signal-processing designs are linked closely together. The 8260A features major advances in audio driver technology, integrated with a sophisticated enclosure design, and Genelec’s proprietary Minimum Diffraction Coaxial (MDC™) Mid/High driver technology takes a big step in perfecting audio quality in professional active studio monitors.
This breakthrough in coaxial driver design provides extremely accurate imaging and improved sound quality, both on the acoustical axis as well as off-axis. The very smooth frequency response leads to outstanding clarity and definition of the inner details of the audio. The 8260A combines, for the first time, a coaxial driver (MDC) with a modern waveguide technology (Genelec’s Directivity Control Waveguide™ / DCW™), ensuring that drivers couple coherently over their full operating bandwidth, as well as creating a coincident mid-frequency/high-frequency point source.

Advanced Genelec DCW
MDC – Minimum Diffraction Coaxial driver
MDE™ – Minimum Diffraction Enclosure
The 8260A system represents Genelec’s cutting-edge innovations in all technology domains. The sophisticated acoustical design of the 8260A is complemented by Genelec’s DSP Technology and GLM software, providing powerful and practical tools such as AutoCal for accurate alignment, calibration and control of the monitoring system in all situations. The MDC coaxial technology is a real breakthrough solution that makes the 8260A unique in the market.
Genelec’s 8260A Tri-Amplified DSP Monitoring System is now available with a U.S. MSRP of $6,595.00.For more information, please visit www.genelecusa.com.
