Genelec 8340A bi-amplified studio monitors are built for demanding professional applications, providing you with a compact footprint, a sophisticated enclosure design, and outstanding acoustic performance. The 8340A monitors are compatible with Genelec's Smart Active Monitor (SAM) technology - which we're very impressed with at Music Experience. SAM technology allows these studio monitors to optimize themselves and automatically align their level, timing, and equalization of room response anomalies, ensuring that you hear the original nuances of your source, without leaving anything out or adding anything to your signal. On top of that, these monitors deliver impressively deep bass, built-in decoupling, ISS power management, and more. Whether you work in a recording studio, post-production house, digital edit suite, radio, or television, you can't go wrong with a set of Genelec 8340A bi-amplified studio monitors!

    Smart Active Monitor (SAM) 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 8340A studio monitor 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 8340As, giving you a highly-flexible computer-controlled system of monitors and subwoofers.

      Minimum Diffraction Enclosure (MDE) delivers focused nearfield sound 

      The 8340A studio monitor features Genelec's Minimum Diffraction Enclosure (MDE) with rounded edges and a gently curved front and sides. This allows the 8340A to achieve a very smooth frequency response and superb imaging qualities with minimized cabinet edge diffraction.

      Genelec's Directivity Control Waveguide enhances directivity

      Like all Genelec 8000 Series monitors, the 8340A also features the advanced Genelec Directivity Control Waveguide (DCW). The revolutionary DCW has been further enhanced to provide extremely accurate control of the 8340A's directivity. Genelec designed this specially shaped, very smooth surface and integrated it with the enclosure. Its area has been maximized to achieve an astoundingly flat on- and off-axis frequency response. As a result, the 8340A has an astoundingly wide, flat frequency response both on- and off-axis. This also gives the 8340A superb imaging qualities and less listening fatigue.

      High-performance reflex port design delivers extended lows 

      To increase the 8340A woofer's low-frequency extension and SPL capacity, Genelec designed an ingenious flow-optimized reflex port. The long, curved tube maximizes airflow, so the 8340A can reproduce deep bass without compression. The tube terminates with a wide flare, minimizing port noises and providing excellent bass articulation. An optimized die-cast aluminum structure with an extremely durable semi-matte finish and acoustically optimized metal grilles add to the 8340A's acoustic excellence.

      High audio output plus low distortion equals killer clarity

      Genelec's low distortion drivers (6.5" woofer and 3/4" metal dome tweeter) are driven by the 8340A's dedicated 150-watt Class D bass and treble amplifiers after sophisticated filtering. Magnetic shielding, overload protection circuitry, and versatile room response controls are standard.

      Versatile mounting options plus special Iso-Pod stand  

      The versatile mounting features on the 8340A include integrated rear support points for wall and floor stands plus a further M10 thread for mounting on the cabinet base. In addition, every Genelec 8340A monitor comes with a standard Iso-Pod (Isolation Positioner/Decoupler). The Iso-Pod enables the acoustic axis of the monitor to be aimed at the listener while acoustically and mechanically decoupling the monitor from the surface it is resting on.

      Protected by Genelec's Intelligent Signal Sensing (ISS) power management system

      Thanks to Genelec's Intelligent Signal Sensing (ISS) power management system, you never have to remember to shut down your 8340A monitors again. ISS constantly checks for input signal. After a while, if ISS doesn't detect anything, it switches your 8340A over to a low-power sleep state, safeguarding your gear and sparing you the wasted electricity.

      What Genelec Says...

      Elevate the accuracy of your audio monitoring to a new level with the precision and adaptability of the 8340A Smart Active Monitor.

      The unvarnished truth

      Top professionals the world over in recording studios, post-production houses, digital edit suites, radio, TV and outside broadcasting have come to rely on the unvarnished truth of the 8340A. Its wide and stable sweet spot promotes accurate, reliable mix decisions, and its bulletproof durability is essential for mission-critical applications. 

      Truly optimised monitoring

      As a Smart Active Monitor, the 8340A integrates closely with our GLM software via which it can be configured and calibrated for your listening environment, compensating for detrimental room influences to create a truly optimised monitoring solution from mono to immersive. So if you need to work in challenging acoustic spaces, the 8340A is your powerful but clever monitoring companion.
