The Genelec 8260A 3-way DSP
system is a masterpiece in electro-acoustic design which features major
advances in audio driver technology integrated to a sophisticated
Genelec MDC™ Minimum Diffraction Coaxial Mid/High driver technology
takes a big step in perfecting audio quality in professional active
studio monitors. This breakthrough in coaxial driver design provides
more accurate imaging and improved sound quality both on the acoustical
axis as well as off-axis. The extremely smooth frequency response leads
to outstanding clarity and definition of the inner details of the music.
The 8260A combines, for the first time, a coaxial driver (MDC™) with a
modern waveguide technology (DCW™), ensuring drivers to couple
coherently over their full operating bandwidth, as well as creating
coincident mid-frequency/high frequency point source.
As a new member of the TEC Award-winning 8200 Series, the 8260A features
Genelec DSP signal processing responsible for all loudspeaker
functions, such as the crossover filters, driver equalizers, driver
position alignment, room response alignment, calibration, and
equalization related filters as well as distance compensating delays.
The Genelec Loudspeaker Manager™ (GLM™) software manages all these
functions allowing the 8260A to be used together with other 8200 Series
DSP monitors and 7200 Series subwoofers in the same setup. Genelec
AutoCal™ automated room calibration and sound system alignment method
provides consistent and accurate frequency response for a multichannel
audio system in widely varying room environments.
The 8260A is housed in a die-cast aluminum Minimum Diffraction
Enclosure™ (MDE™) with acoustically optimized rounded edges to prevent
diffractions and yielding superb sound stage imaging. The robust
enclosure is also completely immune to vibrations. Each 8260A also comes
with an Iso-Pod™ (Isolation Positioner/Decoupler™) which eliminates
coloration of the sound by decoupling the monitor from its mounting
surface. For ideal mounting in differing environments, the 8260A
includes integrated rear support points for various floor and wall
