GENELEC 8320A & 8330A

The new Genelec 8320A and 8330A monitors ship with Genelec’s SAM room calibration system. Huw Price tries the system with both models in the range…

It’s a long while since Genelec dispensed with square-sided enclosures for most of its studio monitors. The rounded edges, smoothly integrated wave guides and curved sides of the cast-aluminium ported enclosures that replaced them have since come to embody the company’s distinctive approach to design and aesthetics.

At first glance, the 8300 series may appear a bit light on features. There are no dip switches to adjust frequency response and the only ‘control’ is the power switch on the back panel. But fear not: these monitors are highly sophisticated performers, whose parameters are controlled by Genelec’s SAM (Smart Active Monitoring) system.
