For extraordinary imaging, extended frequency response, and fatigue-free listening at near- to midfield distances, you can't beat point-source monitoring. Genelec has point source nailed with their 8331 SAM. Part of Genelec's "The Ones" series, this revolutionary 3-way studio monitor combines Genelec's Acoustically Concealed Woofer (ACW) technology with other innovative technologies to deliver an impressively linear payload over a remarkably wide bandwidth, resulting in phenomenal imaging and clarity. At Music Experience, we're impressed by Genelec's Smart Active Monitor (SAM) technology, which optimizes level, timing, and equalization of room response anomalies. The result is an amazingly tight, accurate sound with enormous dynamic range and unprecedented frequency response, regardless of where you choose to work. On top of that, these monitors perform optimally in both horizontal and vertical positions.

    Acoustically Concealed Woofer (ACW) technology delivers superior imaging

    The 8331's dual woofers employ Genelec's innovative Acoustically Concealed Woofers (ACW) to extend their coaxial acoustical radiation concept to bass frequencies. Hidden inside the monitor's cabinet, these woofers use the entire front baffle as a giant Directivity Control Waveguide (DCW) to control directivity over a very wide bandwidth, creating a massive "sweet spot." It also provides effective separation from the 8331's Minimum Diffraction Coaxial (MDC) driver, which reproduces midrange and high frequencies. The result is incredibly accurate monitoring with unparalleled frequency separation, a wide dispersion pattern, and unbelievable imaging.

      Smart Active Monitor (SAM) technology provides remarkably accurate monitoring

      These days, it's not unusual for an engineer to work in a small, less-than-perfect acoustical environment. Genelec's Smart Active Monitor (SAM) technology takes this into account by allowing the 8331 SAM to automatically calibrate its level, timing, and equalization to your room, ensuring that you hear the original nuances of your source accurately, without color or distortion. By using the highly-intuitive Genelec Loudspeaker Manager (GLM) software, you can control an entire network of SAM speakers, giving you a highly-flexible computer-controlled system of monitors and subwoofers.

      Minimum Diffraction Enclosure (MDE) delivers focused nearfield sound

      The 8331 SAM features Genelec's Minimum Diffraction Enclosure (MDE) with rounded edges and a gently curved front and sides. This allows the 8331 SAM to achieve a very smooth frequency response and superb imaging qualities with minimized cabinet edge diffraction.

      What Genelec Says...

      Incredible three-way point source monitor with the footprint of a compact two-way. When space and precision is of the essence, nothing even comes close.

      Work faster, for longer

      For applications calling for extraordinary imaging, extended frequency response, short to medium listening distance or long, fatigue-free working hours, The Ones are in an elite league of their own. They promote faster and more consistent decision making, and they also extend listening time, because unnatural imaging - a main contributor to listener fatigue - is minimised. 

      Mixes that translate

      The smallest in The Ones series, the 8331A is perfect for small rooms or ultra-nearfield applications, and offers an outstanding solution where none existed before. And in conjunction with our GLM calibration software, the 8331A will compensate for detrimental room acoustics and distance delay, regardless of whether you work in mono, stereo or immersive formats. So now you can deliver mixes that translate beautifully - every time.
