The Genelec 1238APM Active Monitor is a three-way SAM monitor featuring on-board intelligence that allows it to automatically adapt to its environment by tuning the frequency response to compensate for acoustical room influences, as well as achieve perfect alignment of level and distance compensation at the listening position. Genelec 1238APM Active Monitor can be either freestanding or flush-mounted. The flush version benefits from a powerful new RAM L rack-mount amplifier that can also be removed from the loudspeaker cabinet when the monitor is flush mounted. Genelec 1238APM Active Monitor is based on the highly successful and much respected 1038A and shares the same DCW (Directivity Control Waveguide) technology and cabinet design, with the addition of Genelec DSP to allow compatibility with all standard AES/EBU digital audio formats as well as traditional analog signals.

Genelec 1238APM Active Monitor also features Genelec ISS (Intelligent Signal-Sensing technology), which was developed to meet EU ErP Directives and the companys own wider sustainability commitments. ISS minimizes energy waste and significantly reduces power consumption when items are left in standby mode by monitoring input connectors to detect if the monitor or loudspeaker is in use. If the audio input is large enough, the product will quickly come out of the stand-by mode and continue to function. However, if the ISS circuit is not finding any audio on the input for a (user definable) period of time, ISS automatically puts the loudspeaker amplifier to a low-power sleep state where the loudspeaker will consume less than 0.5 watts of power.
